I was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, a suburb in eastern Toronto. I grew up playing soccer, basketball, volleyball and competed in track and field and cross country. Movement brings me out of my head - I have a tendency to overthink. I feel like my truest self when I’m moving my body and I crave “in the flow” experiences. This love of movement brought me to the University of Western Ontario to study Kinesiology. While playing soccer at Western, I was looking for a way to loosen up my tight hips and ankles, as well as prevent future injuries - chronic ankle sprainer here! That lead me to Moksha Yoga London back in 2007. It was love at first sweat! My practice continues to reveal my inner workings and has gifted me tools to navigate life’s ebbs and flows. Yoga is definitely the yin to my yang and helps me maintain harmony in my life. Specifically, pulling me away from school teaching into following this path full time. The practice keeps my body in line for playing football, getting my butt kicked at Orange Theory and hiking in the mountains. But, as many yogis do, I came for the physical benefits but have developed a dedicated practice for the mental benefits as well. I am motivated to share the teachings of yoga and completed my first teacher training, 500 hours with Moksha/Modo Yoga, in Kelowna in July 2015. I currently have over 700 hours of yoga teacher training, having most recently trained with Ryan Leier and One Yoga. I am looking forward to learning more and passionately sharing with this amazing community. Namaste.
