I’ve been practicing Moksha yoga since 2008 when a co-worker recommended that I give it a try. I had been struggling to manage stress and was also looking for another form of exercise outside of the gym which I had been doing for many years. So, I gave it a shot. I was completely hooked after the first session. It became a five, six and sometimes seven day a week practice in no time.
I’ve completed the following trainings:
Moksha Yoga 500 hour teacher training
Naturality 100 hour meditation teacher training certification
Applied Mindfulness Certification program – University of Toronto
Health and wellness coaching certification program – Institute for Integrative Nutrition
Associate coaching certification – Integral Coaching Canada
My area of special interest is mindfulness. I started practicing mindfulness meditation right around the same time that I started with Moksha yoga and it has transformed my life in every way imaginable. Its helped me to heal physically, mentally and emotionally. Its helped me to cultivate a deeper understanding of myself and the world around me. Most importantly its allowed me to create a healthier and more loving relationship with myself which has been so impactful. I enjoy bringing mindfulness practice into my yoga teaching helping students to bring greater awareness to their breath, body and mind as they move through the Moksha series. In addition to being a Moksha teacher I am also a Mindfulness Coach and part of the Moksha Wellness Milton team. I work one on one with clients helping them integrate the practice of mindfulness into their lives helping them to find greater wellness in mind, body and spirit.
I absolutely love the Moksha Milton community. It’s the connection with students in and outside of the practice room that makes the yoga experience so very special. As a student I had such amazing teachers who guided me through my practice and really helped me through some challenging times. It’s been such a great privilege to be able to give back to this community in the same way. Guiding and supporting students with this practice, holding space as they explore a path that feels right for them. There’s nothing better than seeing a student come out of a class a little bit lighter, less stressed, happier, stronger, more calm, grounded…etc.
