I have been practicing yoga for over 14 years, rolling out my mat in yoga studios all over the globe.
I was first introduced to Yoga in 2007 in Montreal, Canada, my home and native land. After achieving a diverse educational background with degrees in Social Science, Political Science and Public Relations Management, I broke away from the 9-5 office job life, and moved to the breathtaking islands of the Bahamas. I began to practice yoga regularly under Elaine Kerry, and studied the Foundations of Yoga and decided to venture off and complete my 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training in Costa Rica with the Marianne Wells Yoga School in 2009.
After completing my training in Costa Rica, I headed for a new life in Australia. Following some extensive travelling around the lucky country, with my Aussie husband, and bringing two beautiful daughters into the world.
I began teaching weekly yoga classes in Dunsborough in January 2014. In order to continue my evolution of understanding and help compliment our Yang lifestyles and vigorous Vinyasa practices, I completed my level 1 Healing Art of Yin Yoga Teacher Training in July 2018 and have since grown a huge passion for Yin Yoga, and the anatomy and philosophy behind the practice. With my passion for Yin growing, I moved forward and completed level 2 Healing Art of Yin Yoga Teacher Training in April 2019. Both trainings were with Danielle Mercer at the Spanda School in Fremantle.
I also completed my SUP Yoga Certification with the RIP Curl School of surf in Bali, Indonesia in November 2019 and offer SUP Yoga classes at Meelup Beach and a private Quindalup dam over summer.
In addition I completed Level 1 & 2 Peter Hess® Sound Massage course in Fremantle in early 2021 and am now offering Sound Massage Treatments, as well and Sound Meditation classes.
Currently I am enrolled in an Advanced 300 hour Yoga Psychology training with Ashley Turner. The training focuses on the neuroscience behind yoga and meditation, as well as trauma-informed yoga.
My yoga style has evolved over the years and blends Hatha with Vinyasa and Yin in many of my classes to make for a gentle restorative class. My classes combine the Asanas (physical postures), Meditation and Pranayama (breath work). I aim to bring peace, light, and energy into my students practice, and provide a complete balance for the mind, body and soul for yogis of all ages.
Currently I is teaching at Dunsborough gym, and group classes and Sound Massage treatments are also available in the new Studio on Balmoral Drive. SUP yoga classes to be offered in January 2022.
I will be once again be offering international yoga retreats in Indonesia and Bahamas once travel restrictions are eased.
