I adopted yoga as a way of life when I was desperate to recover from painful inflammation in my foot. Yoga increased my self-awareness of mind, body and spirit, and there was no going back. Practicing regular mindfulness and cultivating self-awareness was crucial to my healing. Through my unique journey, I discovered that my yoga practice was also a major tool in managing my issues with social anxiety. I learned to breathe deeply in times of stress by bringing my yoga practice off the mat and into my daily life. Now as a mom of 2 boys, yoga is the only way I can remain sane! Without it, everything would be total chaos!
I love to share my unique take on yoga. I focus on instilling confidence, self-awareness and strength in my students all while having some fun! I have a big sense of humour and it often comes out during class. Creating a community of less stressed out yoga moms is my passion and number one goal.
I have been teaching yoga classes in and around my local community of Manotick, Ontario since early 2017 and have been practicing yoga since 2011.
