The reasons that bring you to explore Yoga can be endless. I initially approached this practice to support physical rehabilitation from a head-on collision, and I got much more than I had anticipated.
By supporting the body to be well and the mind to be available, one can contemplate the true nature of the Self.
I am grateful to be a student of the teachings of Yoga which support deep inquiry and remembrance.
Quite likely the greatest impact on my understanding and approach to yoga thus far comes from a superb study of the Bhagavad Gītā with Kaya Mindlin through 2019-2020. I acknowledge the influence of western perspective on my understanding of yoga, and am committed to continued study of the teachings of Yoga and Advaita Vedānta (non-duality).
My practice and offerings are guided by personal experience of recovery from an eating disorder, head-on collision and addiction. Social work experience centred in the field of mental health and end of life support informs my perspective, as does ongoing study of therapeutic yoga through Ajna Yoga.
It is through my own unlearning, study and healing that I aspire to support you in your Yoga practice.
As of June 1st, some studios and public classes are reopening.
Please visit studio websites directly for information about policies and procedures regarding COVID19.
Classes are thoughtfully delivered with focus on presence, breath and accessibility.
My approach is one of non-urgency, with the intention of supporting awareness and discovery.
