What I’m up to: I’m originally from Nova Scotia. I grew up in Cape Breton and went to university in Halifax to study Biology. I did my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2010 at the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in Val Morin, Quebec. I fell in love with the ashram life and stayed the entire summer. While there I also completed a certificate in Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy which added to my passion for holistic health care. I hope to continue my journey along this path and move into Naturopathy or Nutrition in the future but for now I am pleased to have some free time for adventures and hobbies. For the last 7 years I’ve spent my spring season in different areas of northern Ontario planting trees and I’ve stayed a few summers to hike the Bruce Trail or do some farm work. I love the outdoors and I’m excited to do more exploring around the area. My long term goal is to have a secluded farm in the woods dedicated to health and happiness where people can come to heal, grow, learn, open up and have fun.
Why I teach: I’ve always had an interest in natural health and that’s what drew me towards yoga. I feel yoga is exercise, medicine, recreation, therapy and a lesson on life all rolled into one. I believe yoga can change the world by helping people open up and feel great!
