About me header.png

I'm a global yoga & meditation teacher, retreat leader and a mentor for new yoga teachers.

 

I've been teaching yoga for over 7 years and have completed over 1000 hours of training so far.

 

I've been told by my students that I have a calm and intuitive energy. I am deeply passionate about exploring outside my comfort zone and I am currently in love with the opportunity I have to travel while still offer private sessions and retreats all over the world.

At the end of 2020, I took the leap to a location independent lifestyle and I spent 2021 living in Mexico and Bali.

 

Whether online or in person, I love supporting my global student base with cultivating inner peace, better quality rest and a more balanced lifestyle. 

Always a student first, I started practicing yoga over 2 decades ago. At that time, I was a competitive figure skater, transitioning out of the athlete world and into the coaching world.

- I was looking for something to "keep me in shape" and heal recurring injuries from my life as an athlete. I had no idea how transformative the practice would be- not just healing and strengthening physically but the healing practices of yoga, meditation and reiki that I offer to my students now likely saved my life through past emotional traumas and grief.

As a healer by nature, I'm beyond grateful to share these offerings with so many others on their own journey to a peaceful and strong body and mind. 

We all deserve inner peace. 

While on this path, I have reflected on spending my 20’s as a competitive sports coach and working in schools as an educational assistant. Both were such rewarding jobs that I loved deeply. I can’t help but reflect on the one common denominator that I felt the athletes, coaches, educators, parents, students (and myself at the time) all had in common. 

STRESS. 

Not prioritizing time to truly take care of themselves, or not even knowing where to start. I was absolutely one of those people. When I chose to deepen my healing practice,  break my stress inducing habits and become a Yoga Teacher in 2014, I began to unravel and release the old patterns that I had spent many years swept up in and many of those years, I was too busy to even understand that I was struggling.

 

After that initial 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training, I dove into many more years of trainings, courses, inner work, more reflection and supporting others through what I have learned. 

With my commitment to learning, unlearning and always growing-

I understand what it takes to find the calm within the chaos.
