Bio: I began practicing yoga at The Yoga Studio in Calgary in 2004. The more I practiced the more I appreciated the benefits that yoga brought to me. I was curious to learn more and enrolled in The Yoga Studio College of Canada’s teacher training program in 2007. Upon graduation I wanted to share my love of yoga with others and I taught classes at The Yoga Studio and the VRRI in Calgary, and The Canadian Yoga Institute in Lethbridge. I specialized in beginner, prenatal, and restorative classes. In 2009, I moved to the Crowsnest Pass and have expanded my teaching to include more challenging classes. My diverse background includes a BSc in Kinesiology and an MSc in Exercise Rehabilitation, years of leading group exercise classes, and working for Alberta Health Services as a Kinesiologist training people with chronic health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and chronic pain. I am a CSEP Certified Exercise Physiologist and an ACSM Clinical Exercise Specialist. My experience results in a style of teaching that focuses on postural and breath awareness, with lots of modifications, so that everyone can practice yoga with ease.
Interests: Trail running, gardening, knitting
Why I love Teaching: It brings me joy to support people as they discover the benefits of regular exercise and yoga. I watch their health and fitness improve which leads to happiness for all!
