I am a Pranalife Certified Yoga Instructor (200hr) as well as a Child & Youth Worker, a Reiki Master, a traveller, a lover of life and good coffee, and a very proud mom of two incredible young men.
Child & Youth work was my first passion. I have spent years working in both the private and public sectors including group homes, a therapeutic residence placement agency and school boards providing young people with social, emotional & behavioural support.
My first Reiki experience was when I was 19 (thanks, mom!) and in 2010 I started my own Reiki journey when I began my training. Over the past 10+ years I have continued my reiki studies and practice and completed the Reiki Master training in 2017.
I dove into yoga in 2011 on my journey towards physical improvement and was surprised when I discovered that a yoga practice had many perks that went far beyond the physical… inner strength and resilience, improved focus, concentration and emotional balance while going through a challenging time. Because of this, I was inspired to share with others the benefits I was enjoying. This inspiration led me to complete the Pranalife 200 hour YTT in 2014 with my favourite yogi and mentor, Pranalife’s Asia Nelson, and I haven’t looked back.
The benefits I have experienced first hand, as well as the benefits my clients have experienced, are why I teach now. I firmly believe that both yoga and reiki (energy work) are two of the greatest tools for supporting physical, mental and emotional wellness. My passion lies in helping others rediscover their own strength, balance, and sparkle in this life – inside and out.
