I am inspired to help others find well-being through self discovery and practical yogic teachings. My intention is to promote balance and passionate living through yoga, wellness, and lifestyle.

I call Whistler, B.C. home but I love to travel and explore. Outside of teaching, I am passionate about snowboarding, hiking, plant-based cooking, reading, writing, and more. Being outdoors is a meaningful part of my life! I believe finding balance is the key which is why I appreciate the beauty in a quiet, seated meditation but also dancing like no one’s watching at music festivals. I am blessed to share my adventures with the people I care about and feel honored to be connected with incredible teachers in the community.

My teaching is inspired by life, love, and yogic teachings. I seek to create a supportive space that welcomes you to be who you are and love yourself for it. Expect to explore movement in a way that is meaningful and intentional. I enjoy sharing stories, mythology, and philosophical teachings to inspire but believe that holding space for silence is just as important. I am very attentive to injuries and encourage everyone to experience freedom from pain. My teaching offers alignment principles that will reduce the risk of injury while holding space for healing beyond the physical body. I emphasize compassionate teaching, complimented by warmhearted assisting and adjusting to make you feel safe, confident, and nurtured. Helping students find their authentic yoga practice is so important to me which inspires me to learn and grow along with you.
