Helping others move their body & heal their soul through yoga & meditation…
My ultimate truth is to lead you in moving your body through the practice of yoga, meditation, and other movement techniques, and to help you heal your soul in the process.
I believe that the physical asana of a yoga practice is here to open you up to new layers of yourself that need to be explored, released, and healed.
I hope that I can help you along your journey from body to soul.

Ever since my first job, my path was aligned with teaching and helping others…
The first job that I ever had was coaching gymnastics. At the time, I was entering high school and realized that I needed to find a job. Coaching gymnastics logically made sense to me as I had trained competitively for many years, even competing at the national level.
Within only 3 years, I managed to coach gymnastics recreationally and competitively with my slew of dancers and other gymnasts that I trained privately. I completed my level 3 gymnastics training and learned a whole lot about how the body moves, and how to work with different bodies. This took me into coaching gymnastics for 8+ years.
Coaching gymnastics was the first step for me in finding my voice as a coach, teacher, and mentor. I fell in love with it, but eventually I began to feel like something was missing…
Shortly after I experienced this feeling, I was introduced to yoga. The first class that I ever took was in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Most would think that it was love at first sight, but it wasn’t! It was hot, challenging, and an interesting experience to say the least! It pulled me in.
Over the course of the year following, my practice grew to multiple times a week and I couldn’t get enough of it! This led me into taking my 200-hour yoga teacher training at iGita Yoga Studio in 2015, and eventually completing my E-RYT 200. As soon as I started my yoga teacher training, I knew that that was where I was supposed to be.
Practicing and teaching yoga became my heart and soul. It filled me with purpose, passion, and excitement to be able to share this practice with others. It took me deep into myself and expanded my spiritual practice to include daily meditation. My training widened my knowledge and understanding of the body, as well as my ability to lead others using my voice.
Becoming a yoga teacher was also the start of my entrepreneurial path. I began saying yes to any teaching opportunity that would take me until I eventually turned yoga into my full time job, leaving my gymnastics world behind me, within a short time frame of 1.5 years. Over the years, I took more yoga-specific trainings from handstands to yin. And within another couple of years, I was able to climb my way up to leading retreats, workshops, and yoga teacher trainings around the world, including being able to teach yoga and coach handstands to students from all over the globe.
Now with my E-RYT 200, 8+ years of experience working with the human body, 4+ years teaching yoga and meditation, I hope that I can help you move your body and heal your soul – both on & off the mat.
Yoga merges mind, body, and soul to create a powerful experience and my teachings are a way for me to help you strengthen this relationship to all 3 of these elements through challenging, yet introspective, asanas, techniques, and meditations.
In my classes, expect to be kept on your toes with creative sequencing, options to explore arm balancing and inversions (especially handstand!), and precise cues that turn your attention to your physical and internal practice.
As a teacher, I stand for growth, education, self-expression, play, & soul. So you can expect elements of each of these in my classes.
