My goal as a yoga teacher is to inspire kindness, compassion and love towards others, and most importantly towards ones self.
I attended my first yoga class at the age of 16 at a local community centre. I was immediately drawn to the practice by the fusion of body, mind and breath in a challenging and rewarding exercise. After my first 40 day challenge in the spring of 2010, I was hooked on yoga and began to practice on a daily basis. I pursued my yoga career by attending the 200hr Yoga Alliance teacher training in the summer of 2011. In January 2014, I partnered with Nicole Whitman to open Yoga Generation in Coquitlam and bring aerial yoga to the Tri-Cities.
In my class you can expect a focus on pranayama and deeping the connection with your body through the breath. Come ready to play, laugh, relax and rejuvenate your body through deep breathing and lots of stretching. I encourage my students to listen to their bodies, while simultaneously testing their limits and growing both in a physical and mental capacity.
When not practicing yoga, I spend my time outdoors. You can often catch me hiking around Buntzen lake, skiing or snowboarding at the local mountains or rock climbing and paddle boarding in the summertime.
