I grew up in Toronto mostly in the East York area. I spent my days riding my bike to the swimming pool with my friends and roller skating around the neighbourhood trying to find the biggest hill.
I really never knew growing up what I wanted to do as an adult. I took hairdressing in high-school which I enjoyed and even tried to work in the field but eventually I left. I went to college and took business as I couldn’t decide on anything else. I worked in businesses, customer service, sales, marketing and eventually medical administration.
While I was pregnant with my first child I took up Yoga. I received a VHS yes that’s correct a VHS for pregnancy and so my practice began 16 years ago. After this I proceeded to buy a DVD for Yoga to continue my practice at home.
After having our first child my partner and I decided to move to Kingston in 2008. Our second child was born in 2011 and I continued to practice at home. In 2015 with a little more time for my self care I wanted to find a studio to further my practice and get to know more people in the community. In 2018 I decided to become a teacher.
I found my teacher Mona Warner locally in Kingston at Janati Yoga school. I took my 200hr Yoga teacher training there in 2018. I have been teaching ever since while working towards my additional 300hr Yoga teacher training for 500hrs. The 300hr Teacher training includes lots of different training options such as meditation, restorative, Chakras, Vedic astrology, Mantra and much more. I have also spend some time training with other teachers in Yin Yoga, Reiki level 2, & Crystal Singing Bowls.
Outer Beauty, Inner Passion
I found my passion and it might have taken a bit longer then I thought but I would never change a thing.
I am grateful to all the people that gave me the opportunity to take the time to go to the Yoga trainings, classes, and a space to teach that helped me grow into the person I am today.
As I now move into my own Yoga studio to help others with their practice my only hope is that you trust yourself to know that your own self care is just as important as the care you give to others in your life.
Wishing everyone the courage to never give up and follow your passions. Love will guide you in the direction that is calling you.
Shanti, shanti, shanti,
