Several years ago, I made a significant shift to follow my heart and live a more authentic, connected life, one much more in tune with myself and the rhythms and cycles of the natural world. My journey has been exciting, eye-opening and enlightening.
That journey led to some amazing places and experiences: New Mexico to build rammed-earth houses (called Earthships) with visionary architect Mike Reynolds; Vermont to complete a certificate in Permaculture (PDC) with Ben Falk at Whole Systems Design and The Big Island for Hawaii Yoga Festival.
Along that journey, I completed my 200-hr Foundational Yoga Teacher Training with YogaFit® Canada and my Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with DevaTree. I later pursued a second 200-hr certification and went on to complete 1000-hours of certification and leadership training with DevaTree - all because opening one door led to countless more doors.
My mission is to create space to grow together, feel wildly alive and fully embodied and live more authentic, connected lives. When not teaching or training, you'll find me barefoot in the grass, connecting with the rhythms of the natural world and flowing with the peaceful, alive, and "unplugged" vibes.
