My yoga is one of shamanic roots from the songs and bones of the earth, the mountains, and the medicine peoples. I have had the great honour of answering my vocational calling to teach yoga since 1998 and studying with many of the masters of yoga as we know them today: B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Sivananda, Geeta Iyengar, Dr. Karandikar, Swami Durgananda.
I completed my 500 hr yoga teacher training with Christine Selda and the Shamanic yoga institute and continue to unpack the gifts that I received during that training. I am inspired by nature in the ways that it is cyclical, death follows life, as life follows death. There is not one without the other, and we must shed the old in order to breathe new life into our being.

I grew up in the forests of Northern Ontario and have always had a very strong connection to the trees. Following whispers in the wind from the mountains, I moved out West to pursue environmental management for many years until I realized my call to serve was beyond the desk.
