"Yoga is the removal of the fluctuations of the mind. (Yoga Sutras: I, 2)"
I am a person who feels life deeply and who needs tools in order to navigate this life with ease. You could call me a super-feeler of sorts and I think there are many of us in the world. When I was in high school I already knew I needed tools in order to navigate my life effectively.
I started off in the world of self-help, then moved deeply into the world of Vipassana Meditation as taught my Mr.Goenka-ji in my 20s. This was wonderful but was no longer a good fit for me when I was raising my two young children.
Vipassana Meditation at Centers World-wide (www.dhamma.org): Completed 11 – 10 day Meditation Courses including 4 months of full-time residential volunteer service at the Ontario Vipassana Center between 2002 and 2007
At this point, I dove into the teaching path of yoga. I took my first teacher training with Ryan Leier in 2006.
One Yoga Vinyasa Teacher Training (www.oneyoga.ca): 200hr YTT Certified – July 2011
My classes are a beautiful mix of multicultural ancestral teaches with a focus on body awareness in alignment with the cycles of the sun and moon.
