I have been integrating Yoga in its many forms into my life since the 1970’s, practicing, studying, exploring.
I have been teaching since 1997. As a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher with a Junior Intermediate II level certificate, 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/
I have also practiced meditation/contemplation for many years and have completed the Certificate of Mindfulness program at Royal Roads University. It has added another dimension to my practice as I continue my journey.
The perennial philosophy has also been a guiding light on my journey as well. Completing the course through the “Living School” offered by “The Center for Action and Contemplation” deepened my understanding and this is threaded into my practice and work.
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!
