Blending Traditions

restorative yoga

My journey into yoga began at a young age, when I found my grandmother standing on her head early one morning – she taught yoga at the Sivananda centre in Montreal from its inception, and of course was my first yoga teacher. I have maintained a steady personal practice since 2007. In 2010 I headed to the Sivananda Yoga Ashram in Val Morin for teacher training. Upon returning to Vancouver I wanted to continue studying and practicing within traditional yoga lineages, as they resonated profoundly with me, and so I found myself learning Mysore-style Ashtanga yoga. I delighted in the individualized approach to this practice, especially given the long list of (non-yoga!) injuries I have sustained over time. My practice is now a blend of these two beautiful traditions – tapping in to discern what is best for the particular state of my mind and body on that day.

my goal while teaching is to hold space for a calm, meditative environment in which to explore the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga.

No matter the type of class, my goal while teaching is to hold space for a calm, meditative environment in which to explore the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga. I practice yoga to help create and maintain peace within myself, and I teach yoga to share this peace practice with others. I hope you leave class feeling both energized and fully reee-laaaxed!! Much gratitude to my wonderful teachers near and far who continue to inspire me in daily life. OM Namah Sivaya!
