During this lifetime on earth, I commit to holding a healing space for individuals to flourish into their connection to self, and the healing powers that we all posses. We can heal our physical injuries, find contentment in emotional trauma, cultivate mental clarity, and delve into spiritual realms. Thus finding ease in meditation/pranayama/asana work that enhances our daily state of being. While yoga is a life path that one can pursue, our true connection, peacefulness, and surrender to “just be,” comes from within ourselves.
Yoga was introduced to me at a time in my life when I was uncertain on how to move forward with a compassionate heart. Yet, I soon discovered the limitless potential of my worth. My intention to begin teaching came from the restoration and the exponential personal growth that occurred within my own practice; I want to share this magic with others.
While our minds are continuously busy and drawn to instant gratification, I’m intrigued by the possibilities that rest within uncovering the layers of my sub-conscious mind, and connecting to my inner voice. While I had tried several types of therapeutic practices, yoga has become a sacred gem to my every day living. My physical injury began to heal; I found acceptance and contentment for the emotional traumas that I had lived. Consequently, I connected to my body in ways that I never knew existed. Although at first I didn’t understand the subtle changes that were happening, I knew that yoga was the missing piece that I had yearned for.
My journey with yoga hasn’t and will never end, for I’m dedicated to continuously immersing myself deeper into the history, philosophy and anatomy. I love passionately writing meditations to sink our practice into a meditative state before asana. In addition, I design themes to enrich your personal yoga journey. My vision at Yoga and Beyond is to go beyond yoga, which encompasses community building inside and outside class time. I believe that yoga is not just a practice, but it’s a way of life. As we connect to our breath, we can learn how to heal ourselves while we listen to our body speak, as yoga is the foundation for non-violence, contentment, peace, and acceptance.
I love writing, hiking, exploring and traveling. All of these passions are beautifully connected to yoga, and I’m enthusiastic in connecting these elements throughout my lifetime as a teacher.
I highly recommend my class to anyone who is interested in going beyond yoga by finding purpose through asana, building community, and indulging in themes related to the Yamas and Niyamas. As well as those who like to laugh, smile and find playfulness in their practice.
I studied a 200hr teacher-training program in Calgary, 100hr meditation/pranayama training in Ibiza, Spain, and 30hr yin training.
Through yoga I explore the true essence of my being, and I find a heartfelt sense of worth and purpose. I’m honoured to share my passionate purpose of healing and guiding you through a safe practice for the mind, body, soul, and spirit. While exploring your personal practice, you will find that you discover new pieces of yourself every time.
