I grew up in the forests of Northern Ontario and have always had a very strong connection to the trees. Following whispers in the wind from the mountains, I moved out West to pursue environmental management for many years until I realized my call to serve was beyond the desk. When I found yoga in 2007, it taught me that within myself I held the power to create the life I want to live. My devotion to my practice brought much love and light into my world and I became inspired to share these teachings with others.
I took the seat of the teacher in 2011 and my path as a yoga instructor has followed several curves, with a long pause while I focused on growing and nurturing the sweet children I was so blessed to bring into this world.
I draw my inspiration, power and faith from the mountains, rivers and trees. Walking the Four Directions of the Medicine Wheel in 2018 strengthened my deep relationship with the natural world and inspired me to answer the call to take on the space that is Shala in November 2019. I am so very humbled and grateful to step into this role and have the opportunity to cultivate transformational and heart-opening experiences for this blessed community.
While not at the studio, you can find me chasing rainbows and kissing trees with my incredible husband and our two children.
