YogashalaWaterdown has such a comfortable and low pressure atmosphere. I always look forward to spending time there. Wonderful teachers and staff, and a perfect variety of class options. So happy to be part of this environment.
With a lifelong love for movement and music and the belief
that keeping mind and body fit should be fun, I became certified to
teach in many of the fitness forms I was engaged in over the years,
including Nia, Zumba and Yoga.
Yoga is my self-care. It’s the place where I go to give me what
I need on that day – whether it is to slow down, to soften, to
reflect or to build strength and energize. It is the time I give
myself when I am a student, but also the time I give to others when
I began teaching yoga in 2010 after completing my Hatha Yoga
certification at Sheridan College. It came at a time when I needed
something to balance out the harder practices I was involved in. I
believe my guiding mission is to always be learning and growing and
my teaching style is to lead from behind, to guide people to where
they need to be, engaging my students by inviting their practice to
go where it needs to take them, in that moment, on that day. I
relish the growth I can facilitate for my students and have been
able to observe the many benefits yoga bestows upon them.
I would describe myself as fearless, fun and a strong leader. I
think others would say the same about me – plus that I am always up
for a dance - anywhere, anytime. For this reason I think “Can’t
Stop the Feeling” is a good theme song for me.
I have been fortunate in my life to have had teachers who have
empowered and inspired me to be the teacher I am today…not only in
the yoga studio but elsewhere. I believe my energetic spirit
enables me to engage students of all ages and fitness levels. Come
and join me for a class!
