I am a Registered 200 Hr Yoga Teacher. I completed my training with Natalie Rousseau, based in Whistler. I started practicing yoga about 7 years ago. Throughout my life I was a competitive gymnast so the asana aspect of yoga came easily. I am definitely attracted to the more gymnastic like aspects of asana practice such as inversions, arm balances, and flow. I recently completed by 50 hour Yin training with Bernie Clark in Vancouver and have found a new love for slowing down. I am also certified to teach yoga nidra.
My yoga practice started on a very physical level at first, practicing only a few times a month and slowly increasing to a pretty much daily practice over the years. Now I practice yoga because it helps me to be a better person in all aspects of my life. Because of yoga, I am so much more grateful and appreciative for the people and things in my life. I am not afraid to express my love for the people around me. I live a healthy life and encourage healthy habits in the people I interact with. I have clarity in my thoughts and decisions. I feel grounded and balanced. I am continually improving. I feel and see the connection that we have to each other and all things on this earth.
As a yoga teacher, I hope that I can guide my students on their own path to a healthy and balanced life. I want to encourage a strong relationship with nature and a strong relationship with all people, because we are all on this earth together. Why not make it as beautiful and blissful as we can?
