About The Teacher

I discovered yoga after completing my MA in International Development and working with some of the world’s most at-risk populations. It was during a Yoga Teacher Training in the Sacred Valley of Peru where I realized how self-awareness, mindfulness and higher consciousness is the path towards truly eradicating disease, poverty and exploitation, both in Canada and across the globe. It was there where I realized that the journey to peace begins with each individual. I teach public and private classes in downtown Toronto, online yin yoga programs and yin yoga teacher trainings across Canada.

Yoga, writing and travel have all proven to me their ability to strengthen weakened bodies and minds, open closed hearts and transform dark nights into bright sunny days. There is an air of magic that erupts when we take time to be creative, to be still and quiet with ourselves and to ask questions and question the answers we get in return.
