The practice of movement has been at the core of my life since an early age. Through countless years of dance, I have studied pilates, gyrokinesis and other somatic movement approaches. And then came yoga… and although it took me a few years to truly grasp the depth of this practice, somehow I kept finding myself coming back to it, again and again. What I found in yoga was the compassion I had been longing for, for myself, my body and for this journey of life.
Since 2010, teaching has become for me a great and humbling path of service and connectivity. My classes are rooted in mindfulness and sustainability, designed with intention to offer an embodied experience of self-care and inquiry. In my practice, I keep falling deeply in love with the subtle. I keep finding anchor and sacredness in the details and nuances, reminding me always, of the beauty of simplicity within this complex experience of life.
As a birth doula, I am truly honoured to guide and support women and their families through this incredible journey of birth. Through movement, breath, partner work and mindfulness, I hold space and help create a grounded, sacred and embodied experience.
In 2019, I became a Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator, the very first in Calgary, AB. I am thrilled to bring this unique approach to pregnancy and childbirth to expectant parents through the Spinning Babies® Parent Class.
I deeply bow to the people who have influenced me with heart, wisdom and vulnerability.
