I Help Women Connect To Their Femininity.

My Mission

My mission is to help women connect to their femininity through the practice of pole dance.

Femininity is something that’s often suppressed in both men and women in social, relational, and cultural contexts to the extent that so many people don’t even realize their disconnect to their own femininity. I believe that one’s femininity is sacred and should be treated as such.

Pole dance reminded me of my own, giving me a newfound purpose to help other women remember their own sacred divine femininity and the power that resides in re-establishing that connection.

Along with that, I believe that the world needs less women competing against each other and more women supporting and uplifting each other. My intention is to create a space and community to nurture that.

My Journey

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 10+ 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 and I couldn’t get enough of it! This led me into taking my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2015, and eventually completing my E-RYT 200As 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.

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 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.

After about 8+ years of teaching yoga and coaching handstands, I found my way into pole dance. My journey to pole started with me looking for a new hobby and my mind just happened to think about trying a pole class. From there, I googled studios near me and tried some classes! The first moment that I fell in love with pole was when I did my first inverted trick (Crucifix). Since then, I’ve fallen in love with the trick & dance components, as well as pole’s ability to bring me in touch with myself and my femininity in a very powerful way.

 

My Classes

I focus primarily on teaching pole dance, but I also offer private handstand and flexibility training, along with yoga classes.

My pole classes fuse together everything that I’ve learned along the way in my movement and teaching journey, including elements from my gymnastics, handstand, flexibility, and yoga teachings.

My favourite styles to teach are aerial tricks and exotic basework tricks, as well as basework and floorwork choreography.

Now officially an international yoga teacher, handstand trainer, pole dance instructor, and gymnastics coach, I have 10+ years of coaching gymnastics and handstands, 8+ years of teaching yoga, and 1 year of practicing, performing, and teaching pole dance.

To practice with me, you can join me in my group classes, sign up for my app, or book a private session with me.

I hope that I can help you move your body and connect to your femininity through the practice of pole dance.
