Her interest in the healing arts branched out as she began the practice of Tai chi for four years, before making her first of many visits to India. When in India Sequoia realized she needed help from addictions. She enrolled into a strict yoga ashram. After six weeks of practicing yoga asanas, mantra and pranayama twice a day, she transformed and healed from her addictions of smoking and alcohol. It was the beginning of her love affair with the practice and teachings of yoga.Sequoia's yoga path started in the lineage of Iyengar yoga.

She extensive study of Yoga began in the tradition of Hatha and Ashtanga from various teachers in India. The love of vibrational healing was also a calling Sequoia had to follow, and studied mantras with Mata Gi, one of the main singers, at Pramath nikatan in Rishikesh, India. Her love for healing sounds, Mantra and Nada yoga began in 2001.In 2006, she completed a three-month intensive and received her 200 Hr Yoga Teacher Training certificate from Pyramid Yoga in Thailand.In 2008, she also wanted to learn more about the yogic breathing also known as pranayama, so she completed a one-month pranayama teachers training course with Shri.O. P. Tiwari at Kavaladhama yogic institute in India. The love for pranayama began.

Sequoia has studied many different healing modalities, which allowed her to run a successful healing centre for eight years in Canada.

She then got sick and healed herself naturally of chrons disease through the modalities she had been studying in previous years and applied them for her healing. Regardless of what Sequoia is teaching her intention is always the same, to inspire, encourage others to listen to their inner wisdom, as the power is within.

For seven years Sequoia was one of the main teachers on Tribe yoga's international teacher trainings in India and Thailand.

Sequoia’s "attitude is of gratitude" for all she has experienced and yet to discover.   She teaches through inspiring others to listen deep within to their inner guidance and have the courage to then follow it.

Sequoia loves connecting to the elements of nature, playing music, conscious breathing, climbing mountinas Being in stillness and making dark chocolate. Sequoia lives in the countryside close to the mountains of B.C Canada.
