Hatha Yoga Teacher
My first experience with yoga was in my late teens; I practiced using an old pocketbook of my mother’s. A couple of years later I took a class at college that included yoga, Thai Chi and meditation but it was not until 1994, after the birth of my daughter, that I committed to a daily yoga practice. I began teaching yoga in 2006 and enrolled in teacher training at Heaven Hatha Yoga (founded by Karen Claffey, an Anusara-Inspired Yoga Teacher). I completed the 250 hour professional level Yoga Teacher Training and registered with Yoga Alliance (a U.S. based international governing body), thereby becoming a certified Hatha Yoga instructor in 2007.
Continuing to study with Karen Claffey at Heaven Hatha Yoga for an additional 300 hours, I became registered with Yoga Alliance at the 500 hr. level.
During my yoga teacher training, I was introduced to the therapeutic benefits of massage and saw this healing method would be an asset to my offerings. In 2010, I obtained my certificate in Thai Yoga Massage/Shiatsu blend massage and joined l’Association des Naturothérapeutes du Québec.
Core Strength Vinyasa Teacher
In 2013, I completed the 20 hour Evolution Teacher Training and became certified to teach Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, founded by Sadie Nardini.
Yoga Training Faculty
In 2014, I was invited to joined the yoga training program faculty of Heaven on Earth Yoga Institute.
I am passionate about yoga and Tantric philosophy and continue to study through workshops, training and on-line courses.
Allow me to participate in your growth and expansion through this beautiful practice we call yoga.
