Who Am I?
I am a yoga teacher, workshop & retreat facilitator who is more alive and aware from growing a unique ever changing practice. Sharing this experience was a natural extension of the bounty of flux and fun in yoga asana, breath work and meditation techniques.
Thirty years ago at the University of British Columbia, I was introduced to yoga asana and the sacred texts of the Upanishads while studying for my Bachelors of Physical Education. I was fascinated with the yogic perspective of well-being as a true culmination of mind and body self-understanding.
Over decades, the wholistic insights from yoga have led me into an exciting journey into body & mind health from Vancouver to Spain, Thailand and India. Since 2007, I have had the pleasure of teaching pubic and private classes at Yyoga, St.Paul’s Hospital and Semperviva in Vancouver, Canada. It has been amazing to see the transformation of well-being with hundreds of keen students within hatha, vinyasa, yin yoga and meditation classes.
I am indebted to a tremendous team of teachers from various traditions for sharing their expertise and preparing me as a yoga teacher as well as my original root of inspiration in Buddhist philosophy and practices.
