From the very beginning I have always been a zealous individual with a passion to be expressive both athletically as well as artistically but my mind and heart kept asking questions to which I really didn't want the answers to so I did what most do... I ran.
A rebel by nature my journey lead me to Banff Alberta, the birthplace of Canada's first national park and what a journey it was and still is. My soul was soothed by the roots of the rockies and the healing abilities of the backcountry. It inspired my desire for self inquiry, to care with the greatest compassion and to be grateful for every lesson learned through my experiences.
As I aged my body did too and in being true to my nature I turned toward yoga as a way I could heal my body. Little did I know at the time, it would not only heal my body, it would also open my eyes to a deeper path of intentional living. The connections I have made with my teachers and my students, my family, my friends and aquaintances are moments of grace and for that I am eternally grateful. Even now as I reflect on these connections I hear their words in my mind, and I use them in reverence as I teach.
200 hours later, a teacher certificate in hand and a penchant to learn more I was off to deepen my practice for 40 more hours of advanced training. Among the plethora of lessons, perhaps the greatest one I learned is that we never stop learning!! And this is why I am here. To share what I know now. To learn from you and to inspire you and give you the tools to help you get your dRSTi on!! My classes are designed with their roots in ashtanga with careful attention to alignment. I believe the way we conduct ourselves on the mat is directly related to how we conduct ourselves off the mat. Yoga philosophy is woven throughout to captivate you and inspire your curiosity to delve deep within for self discovery.
As written in the Bhagavad Gita...
"Yoga is the journey of the self, to the self, through the self."
