Yoga Profile—Your Body Needs You

“Your body needs you to look after it better. It is time to do more yoga.” This self-talk finally came home to roost when the residue of numerous sports injuries gave me a definitive nudge to pay attention. After several years of flirting with yoga, I finally took the plunge. It started as a regular physical practice that made me feel whole and more body aware and quickly evolved to a deep curiosity about the esoteric healing and spiritual side of yoga practice.

I am currently enrolled in Yoga Therapy International’s Certified Yoga Therapist (CYT) 1000 Di-ploma Program and have completed term 1 of the three terms. I have earned 500-hour level yoga plus Yin and Ysculpt teaching certifications from YYoga Teachers College and have done trainings and workshops in many disciplines (therapeutic yoga, tensegrity, seasonal sadha-nas, mythology, ayurvedics). Always passionate about education, I completed a Master’s in Eduhealth benefits of yoga. The practice entices me with a spirit of inquiry, openness, and opportunity.

I practice and teach yoga because every time I experience new body / mind / spirit awareness, integration and peace.
I teach from a place of nurturing a safe, supportive, pure movement based practice, inclusive of individual levels and needs. I love to share my knowledge in a creative, therapeutic and authentic practice in Therapeutic, Restorative, Hatha, Flow and Yin yoga style classes. Come connect to the breath, move and feel alive!

I am currently teaching Adaptive Yoga Classes for Young Stroke Survivors with the North Shore Stroke Recovery Program which I love. Such a fabulous, supportive group!
