My journey into yoga began in 2013 when life’s pressures encouraged me to look for a creative outlet for stress. I know the yoga resonated on a cellular level, but the physical practice didn’t stick.
It wasn’t until April of 2018, after a very difficult few years, that I was drawn back into the Hot Room. I was pushing through my second round of medical school interviews and simultaneously coming to terms with the realization that I was no longer passionate about my current path. I was defeated, exhausted, and broken down. I knew I needed something to ignite that fire for life within me again! An ad for a week of free hot yoga grabbed my attention and that’s where it really began. I dove in and haven’t stopped.
My asana practice consists primarily of Ghosh lineage 26/2, Integrated Hatha with ISYI, and yin. I’m always learning! Yoga is my anchor, my anti-depressant and anxiolytic – my path to whole-self wellness. I am more connected, conscious, and at peace when I lean into the yoga. My faith lies within this practice, and I credit it for so much spiritual growth.
In the Spring of 2019, I attended the 500-hour Level 1 Teacher Training with Craig Villani and Raja Yoga Academy in Victoria, BC. Teaching is my passion and it’s an honor to be trusted to hold the space for the deep inner-work that happens when we show up on our mats. All in all, we practice yoga to get better at living… so let’s get to it!
