Vinyasa Yoga Instructor
I fell in love with yoga the first day I stepped onto my mat. Yoga has been a very important part of my life. It is where you can find your inner peace and be in a state of complete happiness, where you leave all negativity aside. I have been practicing for over 8 years and have fallen in love with this practice. I have had the fortune of training with some outstanding teachers. I have completed 250 hours with downward dog under the guidance of renowned teachers Ron Marla Diane and David. I believe in this practice you never stop learning that is why I continue to take workshops and further my knowledge of yoga. I try to share my love for yoga with all of my students. I feel that when you really love what you do your students will feed off of that positive energy and at the same time a teacher learns so much from every student. I try to live my life the same way I spend it on the mat, with love, patience and acceptance.

Yoga and Fitness Enthusiast
I have been a Yoga and fitness enthusiast since the days of leg warmers. If you were not around then, that would be around the mid 1970’s. The concept of a Holistic lifestyle became a strong motivating force and guided my journey towards the awareness of the benefits in achieving a healthy, balanced physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of well-being. In the late nineties I decided to get the necessary education to become a fitness leader and completed a 2 year Fitness Leadership Program at Humber College. That only fueled my confidence and desire to explore the world of fitness and its’ many facets. I went on to receive my 1st and 2nd Degree Black Belts in Shotokan Karate and taught a Women’s Kickboxing program for approx 15 years. I introduced a Pilates and Yoga practice to balance the program and have been teaching these forms of discipline ever since. My passion and overall experience, allows me to offer a unique and effective practice that I love to share with others. The benefits of a consistent practice soon reflect on the many aspects of our lives. Allowing each and every one of us the opportunity to contribute towards a happier and healthier world, one posture at a time
