My mom took me to my very first yoga class 12 years ago at Samatva yoga here in Kingston. I tried a few classes with my mom but found it to be challenging and did not go back until 2 years later. I am so thankful that my mom introduced me to yoga because yoga has changed my life for the better and has made me into the person I am today. I practice yoga to cultivate a sense of inner peace. Yoga helps me connect to my body, mind, and my true authentic self; my spirit. Yoga is very healing for me and helps me to quiet my busy mind. Each time I step on my mat I am reminded to live in the present moment. I absolutely love teaching at Salti. Salti felt like home to me from my very first shift. The owners, manager and other yoga teachers are so kind, welcoming and approachable. I enjoy teaching a variety of different styles of classes. I also enjoy connecting with many yoga students and members in our community. I am both a yoga teacher and a student; as I learn just as much from my students as they learn from me.
