A Canadian raised & residing entrepreneur, I am passionate about searching for the best ways to live life. I want energy, grace, love, connection and abundance. This quest led me to becoming a yoga teacher and opening my first business, Moksha Yoga St. Catharines. After 6 years at the helm of the studio, my partner and I decided to pass on the reigns. I also spent 2 years leading retreats and workshops exploring Danielle LaPorte’s Dersire Map, a soulful approach to personal and professional goals.
I gotta say, I love teaching yoga classes. It’s been a long time coming for me to self proclaim that I’m damn good at it too. By no means do I know-it-all, I teach thoughtful and inspiring classes that are inclusive and fun. More importantly, I’m a student first, remaining curious at workshops and trainings to keep my teaching fresh and informed . I have attended multiple Moksha Yoga trainings, Calling, Craft & Creativity Training with Yumee Chung and Journey Into Power: Level One Training with Baron Baptiste. Teaching will always be one of my passions and I will continue to be of service this way as I explore other interests and follow my heart.
I’m a master host, a natural when it comes to reading a room and uniting groups of people to share meaningful experiences. I was born with these special gifts and all paths I’ve been on have helped me strengthen what flows easily to me. Today I coach people to tune into these skills to improve their service. As a result, people feel more confident in their offering and more comfortable owning their presence and power in this world.
On January 1, 2018 I was blessed with the honour of giving birth to my daughter. I taught a yoga class and delivered my baby girl within 24hrs! Being a mom has had me reprioritizing my life in expected and unexpected ways. It’s been really hard at times, but more than anything she has been the brightest beam of light in my life.
My new role has also informed my life in new ways, which means new insights that will show up in my work. I’ve learned through my own challenges that how we live and the work we do will always intersect. My boundaries have gone from too rigid all the way to super lax in my journey to understanding how this intersection is relevant and powerful for me. I strive through my intentions and actions to navigate this overlap with grace.
I live in St. Catharines, Ontario with David, my partner in love and life, our daughter Valencia and our fur baby Julep.
