8 years ago, I began practicing yoga to ground myself into my body. What began as a simple attempt to 'relax' unfolded into a path of challenge, wonder, education, and inspiration that has taught me humility, and that we are all students - always. Teaching yoga is where I feel I am the ultimate student.
I have always sought further information on the profound physiologic science of this practice. Knowing that proper alignment of the physical body is the key to accessing deeper areas of the energetic body, I strive to maintain an emphasis on positioning and avoidance of injury in all my classes. As a Naturopathic doctor, I see a wide range of injuries and health conditions every day. This has lead me to understand that yoga can truly meet every body and every mind - wherever that may be - as long as it comes with a bit of patience, curiosity, and awareness.
Now, after months of study and experience in India, 500 hours of teacher training, and countless hours on the mat, I look forward to contributing to the yoga community here in Fernie.
