There is a saying in the yoga world that you are only as old as the number of years since you started practicing yoga....so that would make me about 7 years old. Fitting really, as yoga keeps me feeling young. One of my most favorite things about owning a yoga studio (Power Yoga Canada) and being a yoga teacher is that I get to be in the fullest expression of myself each and every day.... it's my job! I am truly living my dream!
I first was introduced to yoga while living in NYC on the Upper East Side at a studio called "Some Like it Hot Yoga" and Paige Elenson (now my dear friend and founder of the Africa Yoga Project) was my first Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. I would leave class feeling rinsed and more awake and alive than I did going in. Paige had a light about her and I wanted to shine like that too. She sent me to Baron Baptiste for a Level 1 Journey into Power Teacher Training Bootcamp.
Well..... after that my life pretty much snow balled into a ball of yoga insanity! Everything seemed to open up for me, it was like life was waiting for me to arrive and I was finally ready to participate and co-create in a fantastic life together! So I moved back to Canada to set some roots after traveling abroad for many years and living in NYC for 6 years. I completed the highest level of training with Baron Baptiste and I am Canada’s only Certified Master Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. Since 2005 I have been apprenticing with Baron Baptiste around the world on over 40 Journey Into Power Teacher Training's and Personal Revolution Bootcamps.
I am passionate about transformation and I see yoga as an opportunity to connect with my spirit and to challenge myself to look inside and delve deep into the fire within. As I become more authentic with myself and begin to live from my truth, then I can hold a powerful space for others to shine light on their inauthenticities and ultimately shine too.
I am an ambassador for lululemon athletica Oakville and an ambassador of the Africa Yoga Project, both organizations and communities that are dear to my heart.
