At the age of 18 my at home yoga practice took hold in the town of Penhold, Alberta, but the foundation of a community practice began when I was abroad in Byron Bay, Australia 2010. Since returning home, I have immersed myself in the Red Deer yoga community and completed 200 hours of yoga teacher training, plus 32 hours of Yin training. The inspiration for my practice at first was motivated by genetic breast cancer, but it soon altered to a conscience connection between the mind and body. Whether it’s practicing yoga or cuing a sequence, focusing on the breath and body perception through movement or stillness seems to evolve. I am continuously drawn to different styles of yoga, they all teach to create a unique connection to awareness. Yin; A sustainable, passive and healing stretch. Yang; Whether it’s Power flow, Hatha, Aerial or Acro, there is distinction among them, but also similarities of using strength. Yoga sets the foundation for your life. It has taught me the difference between fierceness and determination, how mindfulness affects change, and what it means to feel empowered. By remaining a student to both Yin and Yang styles of yoga, allows for new inspiration to regularly emerge and sets me up for the next goal to be achieved.
