I encourage my students to roll out their mats, take a deep breath, smile, practice and awaken their inner strength
We are the thoughts we host in our minds, the food we consume, and the relationships we choose to have with others and the environment
The art of teaching requires cultivation and passion. Since I moved to Ottawa, I decided to transition from the corporate world into teaching fitness and wellness. In the year 2001 became a Certified Fitness Instructor and led numerous fitness classes for newcomers and low-income women in the Ottawa area. Sharing my life’s passion with others.
In 2004, I graduated from leisure and recreation studies and became a certified Yoga Instructor. I instructed daily yoga classes for all ages, interests, and abilities at Retirement facilities, daycare centers and for the City of Ottawa.
In 2005, I rediscovered Yoga, as my Grandma used to say, “a life-long journey of dedication and practice”. Since then, I have had the opportunity and pleasure to study under the guidance of Yoga teachers close to my heart such as Asia Nelson, founder of Pranalife Yoga & Janine Keller, whose insightful guidance inspired me to continue my Yoga studies at Vidya Yoga Institute in Toronto with Gitte Bechsgaard PhD, Gillian McCann PhD, and Jette Berring , Director of the B.K.S. Iyengar Center in Copenhagen & Gloria Goldberg Director of the B.K.S. Iyengar Center in La Mesa, CA
In February 2018, I graduated as a Manual Osteopath from NAO and I am a member of the Osteopathy Chronic Pain Clinics of Canada OCPCC. I now offer yoga classes combining the technique from Yoga and Manual Osteopathy. I also offer Osteopathic Wellness treatments.
In my classes, expect small personalized groups, hands-on adjustments and undivided attention to each one of the students. My classes offer a deeper understanding and knowledge of yoga that can be easily brought home to establish a solid daily practice if desired.
I believe that Yoga should be practiced at a place that feels more like home.
