Yoga for the Mind

My Yoga Story

I came to yoga in the early 2000’s as a stressed mother of two kids and a full time paralegal.  Life was hectic and one of my kid’s teachers pointed me to a little book that taught me how to do sun salutations.

Sun salutations changed my life!

I continued to practice yoga on my own and in 2011 I signed up for and completed my 300hr yoga teacher training in beautiful Victoria, BC.

In the years that followed my certification, I went on to build a substantive yoga teaching practice, while still working full time in the legal industry.

After moving to Costa Rica in 2014, and then back to Canada in 2015 the practice became more refined and on a smaller scale.

In 2019 I began teaching yoga to a group on a weight-loss program and also dove in heavily to the chair yoga world.

In 2020, during the early days of COVID, I transitioned my teaching to the online world and in late 2020 became a certified Yoga Life Coach.

Marrying the practice of yoga with life coaching is a beautiful thing and I absolutely love to see my clients transform when they implement a regular yoga practice.

My Wellness Journey

This is a life-long story!

I became a life-time member of a weight-loss program at the age of 10 and spent my entire life believing that I had a “weight problem”.

With mindset tools that I have developed, I have learned that in fact I do not have a weight problem or a food problem, rather I have learned that I have long standing beliefs that these were issues, when in fact, I am quite normal in my tendancy to pacify emotional issues with food.

I am thrilled to be in a position to help others on their journey to becoming the healthiest person that they can be.

My Teaching Story

I recall early in life being the person that people would come to for advice or to just to talk.  Being patient and a good listener are key skills that I have honed over a lifetime.   Over the years I have taught running clinics, litigation software, college legal programs, yoga and meditation and have mentored countless individuals in all areas of life. Today, I am grateful to be in a position to help clients to find happiness and peace in their day to day lives, while manifesting a future that they absolutely love!
