We all have a long list of things that we “are”.   I’m a yoga teacher; a blue moon runner, an on-again-off-again blogger,  an adventure seeker, a daily grinder,  a day dream believer, a Mom to 2 amazing, now adult kids, and an eager student of life.  Feeling good in my mind & my skin is what I strive for every day and is what brought me to yoga.

My practice brings me back to a place of vision and calm enthusiasm.  It helps me feel strong and free in my body, grounded, focused, and inspired.

My Style

Teaching, just like your practice, evolves over time.  Over the past several years my path has drawn me to guide the subtle energy practices of Yin Yoga, Restorative, Yoga Nidra & Meditation.  When I can I bring fun back to the mat with out of the box classes like Goat Yoga & Harry Potter Yoga (because life & yoga shouldn’t be serious all the time). But Hatha and slow flow will always be one of my very favourite classes to practice & to share.

My style is simple.  When I step to the front of the room (or on to the camera and into your room) I’m there for only one purpose, to help you find a practice that feels good physically, emotionally & energetically.   I’ll offer options for a strong practice or a more gentle one.  I encourage pausing to figure out what you really need today, to explore your energy and your strength, then to embrace a delicious savasana.  This time on the mat is yours,  I’m just your guide.

The tag line at the top of this page says: Live Energized & Inspired.   That’s my goal for myself, my family and for every person I meet.

Embrace your day & make it amazing!

Sunshine smiles & hugs in challenging times,
