My focus on health and
wellness began through the practice of yoga and Pilates
in 2010 after searching for new ways to stay active.
Growing up as a
competitive gymnast and diver,
Iexperienced tolls
on my joints and wanted to find a low impact
exercise that I could do at home without requiring a lot
of equipment. I
love these modalities for the way they link breath to movement
and for their ability to calm the nervous system while
building strength. 

After finishing an undergrad in Psychology from the University of
Ottawa, I completed a yoga teaching certification (YTT200) in
2015 while travelling in Southeast Asia. Anatomy and
mechanics have always
been of huge importance to
me in order to ensure safety and
effectiveness of movement, and because of this I found myself drawn to
teaching Pilates. I also
wanted to find a manual approach that could complement
all this knowledge I had gained in movement therapy. Not
only did the science behind Osteopathy so clearly align
with the way I viewed health but
the countless stories of its success made it an easy
decision to pursue a formal education in
the field. In 2016 I enrolled with the Canadian Academy of
Osteopathy and am currently completing my third year of the four year
program. 
 
I'm constantly searching for new approaches to connect with
clients and help them obtain health by combining modalities of
movement. I like to play with various approaches so that time
spent with me leaves clients feeling healthier, stronger,
and in less pain. I aim to share tools to use in everyday
life so that sessions create new healthy habits in
day-to-day living. Understanding that often the most difficult
step to exercising is simply making the decision to do it, I aim
to teach with a compassionate and supportive attitude.
I see each person as a unique individual requiring fresh
eyes and a blank slate in regards to what the body needs on
any particular day. I love to experiment with different
cues in order to evoke imagery within clients so that they can
connect to the movement on a deeper level and have a better
understanding of how and why their body is moving in a particular
way. 

I'm excited to work with clients of
all different levels. I believe that I have as much
to learn from my clients as they do from me and working
with the public is a huge opportunity for further
growth.
