"Growing up in London, Ontario I was involved in competitive wrestling at a young age, putting great physical demands on my body. In 2008, after the birth of my second son, I was drawn to yoga as a way to regain physical strength and confidence in a more peaceful way. The calmness of a yoga practice, combined with the physical benefits are what continue to draw me back to my mat. I completed my initial 500 hour RYT training in 2012 at Moksha Yoga Victoria and have completed continuing education in Yin Yoga, Aerial Yoga and Thai massage. I also enjoy chocolate, wine and travel and my favorite yoga pose is anything that pushes me outside of my comfort zone and challenges me."

"I have loved movement for as long as I can remember. I grew up doing gymnastics, kayaking and competitive cheerleading. In 2006 I was introduced to yoga in a class setting at Feel Yoga Kingston where I found many of the same physical benefits of the activities I grew up doing and eventually so much more. Through yoga I am learning to be healthy, not sweat the small stuff, practice peace and connect with myself. After completing my degree in psychology, I attended my initial 500 hour RYT training in 2012 at Moksha Yoga Victoria. I have since pursued further studies in yoga therapy, mindfulness and trauma-informed approaches to yoga. I am also an aerial circus artist, cat lady and handstand enthusiast."
