I have been integrating Yoga into my life since the 1970’s, practicing, studying, exploring.
I have been teaching since 1997 and am a Certified Iyengar Yoga teacher. As recently as June 2017 successfully completed the Junior Intermediate II level assessment. I have found that being part of the International Iyengar community a challenging and fulfilling part of my life, as I am strong proponent of life long learning.
I am an active member of both the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada http://www.iyengaryogacanada.com/ and our local teachers group based out of the Iyengar Victoria Yoga Center. http://www.iyengaryogacentre.ca/
This past year I completed the Certificate of Mindfulness program at Royal Roads University. It has added another dimension to my practice as I continue my journey.
As a devoted practitioner, I stay connected to community through, classes and workshops on asana, therapeutic yoga, philosophy and meditation.
As a teacher, you can count on me to encourage and challenge you, as I do myself, to have a balance between ‘tapas’(intense, burning effort) and ‘santosa’ (contentment) both on the mat and in our lives.
WE ARE ON THIS JOURNEY TOGETHER!
