I've been an active member at Coast for over a year now. I love attending the classes and the instructors are so supportive! They all take the time to answer questions and ensure that participants are performing the exercises properly :)
I am passionate about movement, body mechanics, being body aware and have spent my life deepening my knowledge in this field. My movement journey began in 1998 when I went to England to dance. In 2003 I graduated from a 3-year full-time contemporary dance program in Vancouver and spent the next 15 years training and performing my own work meshing contemporary dance and aerial circus arts worldwide. In 2009, I completed 500 hours of yoga teacher training involving yin yoga, restorative yoga, laughter yoga, hatha yoga and pranayama. In 2014/2015 I took six months of intensive solo and tandem platform diving to learn various rotations, key body positions and precision timing.
Over the years I have had the pleasure of developing the aerial curriculum for two circus schools, creating strength and flexibility training programs for competitive figure skaters as well as various Crossfit franchises and teaching aerial and ground based partner acro workshops in a variety of countries.
I draw on all my forms of training when I teach so my exercises are quite often unconventional. It’s my joy and mission to help people develop deep stabilizing strength, gain greater flexibility and encourage a sense of play while moving. I am inspired by the people in my classes and learn new things every time I teach. I look forward to teaching and taking classes at Coast Fitness with all of you!
