For 19 years I have been teaching yoga, studying, and travelling around the world. My practice began in Vancouver, Canada with Eoin Finn of Blissology in 2001, followed by training with Kathryn Beet of Yogaspace in Toronto. Under her excellent tutelage I completed my first comprehensive 1-year 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program focused on classical Hatha and contemporary Vinyasa. Assistant teacher to the course was International Iyengar Certified Teacher, Michael Siddall, whose teachings emphasised philosophy, individual alignment for all, and healthful living.
Upon graduating I moved to Byron Bay, Australia where I based myself for a decade of international yoga teaching, study, and personal adventures. These experiences led me to enrolling in an internship at a yoga academy in Nepal, a Blissology Teacher Training in Bali, and the development of my teacher training program and manual, now in its 4th copyrighted edition.
In 2017 I completed a 300 Hour Advanced Yoga Training at an ashram in Karnataka, India, earning an E-RYT 500 master certification. I have taught two group Yoga Teacher Trainings in Canada and individually designed private training courses for clients in both Canada and New Zealand. Most recently I was the Resident Yoga Teacher for the charitable organization Whispering Seed in Kalaw, Burma (Myanmar) in early 2020. Currently I have relocated to Dubai, UAE and conduct private and public group yoga sessions and offer one-on-one and group Yoga Teacher Trainings.
