What I’m up to: Being very energetic and passionate in my undertakings has brought me to take on an active lifestyle early in my life. As an approach to creating a fit and healthy body, I certified as a Canadian Fitness Professional Instructor and started teaching fitness in Sudbury and in my community of French River. I did this in my spare time as I’ve been working full time for 34 years as a Medical Laboratory Technologist in the city of Sudbury. When yoga was gaining popularity, I was asked if I would consider teaching yoga in my community. I was reluctant, as I knew very little about Yoga other than I thought it meant I had to slow down. I began by learning yoga through workshops and conferences in Toronto. I started teaching “Yoga Fundamentals” and the feedback I received from the students was gratifying. It took one full year of teaching yoga for me to understand the holistic benefits of mind fitness. I continued my education in fitness by certifying in Pilates 1, Yoga for Runners and a 200hr Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga teacher training program in Rishikesh, India. My plan is to always be a student of yoga.
Why I teach: My role as a teacher is to help yogis find release and strength physically and mentally. I seek to help them discover themselves while creating balance in their day to day life.
I enjoy teaching at the ARC yoga studio because of the support, inspiration, empowerment, personal connections and the spirit of freedom.
