Yoga is a wonderful practice for connecting the mind and body, calming the nervous system and increasing feelings of well-being. That's what got me hooked more than 20 years ago. That high I felt after a yoga practice. And so I practiced and my mind felt clear and my heart felt open. But too much of a good thing lead me to physical imbalances.  No single movement practice contains everything and my body was craving the movements...

If you’ve been to any of my classes or workshops you’ll know that I absolutely love learning about anatomy, alignment, biomechanics and how it all relates to the practice of yoga.

CBC North picked up on the post and published this article. They also put a clip of our interview on TV and invited me in to our local morning radio show. And it was shared nationally via the...

I’ll also post photos or videos of practices that I personally LOVE and want to share with you! I’m a body geek and am always trying to learn new things so you never know what you may find here. However, there are some movement themes that I more commonly explore in both my...
