- Olds, AB
The practice of Yoga has given me the gift and awareness in developing a relationship between my internal and external realities. My path to this ancient practice began in 2003 as a form of healing from a skateboarding injury. After the first class I realized that I could finally breathe knowing that I found my true calling. Coming from a dance background my body was telling me to slow down and restore. While honoring the playfulness that I got from breakdancing it allowed me to keep my practices light and fun. I wanted people to feel how I felt, the bliss, balance, strength and relaxation. So I decided to take my 200 hr teacher training in Hatha Yoga in 2005. Which was a beautiful foundation to build a life long journey. In 2008 I met my teacher Rameen Peyrow and he inspired me to take the 200 hr Ashtanga teacher training. Being a snowboarder my whole life I related to the inversions, and dynamic sequencing. Shortly after that I opened up my own studio called The Yoga Home in Olds, AB. A few years later I fell in love with Sattva Yoga and in 2012 received the 200 hrs from Rameen Peyrow. Sattva resonates truth and balance to me and I will continue to share this with my students, friends and family. Within the same year I graduated from 2200 hrs of Massage Therapy. As a body worker and a practitioner of Yoga I am able to connect to my students on a more intimate personal level helping them to understand how the anatomy and physiology works within the practice. My passion for travelling, surfing and Spanish have given me a direction in my career to focus on Yoga retreats and Teacher Trainings. I have been fortunate enough to globally share and express the ability to access the divine intelligence that exists within us all. I feel blessed to have the platform to share this amazing art and science of mind, body and breath connection with the world.
