My approach is gentle and encouraging, calm and lighthearted. My classes are fun and playful, flowy and quirky. In my classes, students are encouraged to explore what feels good in their body. When I was pregnant with my first child, I found yoga and knew I had found something that was necessary in my life - physically, emotionally and spiritually. I continue to practice yoga on my own, with my partner and with my children. I have a BA in Child and Youth Counseling, with a minor in Family Work, and have experience working with children and families in a wide range of communities in Ontario, in various settings - schools, private centres and homes. I believe so strongly in the importance of people connecting with each other and themselves. The earlier they start the better, so why not start in childhood! I love to help children and youth grow confidence and empower them to believe in themselves and others around them in playful and creative ways. I knew I found a special community when I joined The Branches in 2020. I dove deeper into this community when I completed my 250 hour YTT in 2022 and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to continue sharing yoga. I also completed a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training with The Branches in March 2023, and a Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with the Prenatal Yoga Center in December 2023. Off the mat, I love being outside in nature - hiking, camping and canoeing. I love cooking, sewing and creating new things. Most importantly, I love spending time with my family - my partner and our three children.
