​            I have always been intrigued by the movement of the body. I was a dedicated and consistent participant within several gyms and bootcamp classes pursuing my love for activity, intensity, and weightlifting. There is no doubt that you'll see me out exploring trails and getting lost in the nature that Nova Scotia has blessed my life with. I have been practicing yoga for 12 years, dabbling in many different paths such as Vinyasa, Hatha, Basic Yoga, Pranayama, Mantra, Meditation, Yin, and Ashtanga Yoga. My love for Ashtanga grew after experiencing my first class in beautiful Grand Desert Nova Scotia and from there it grew into a frequent practice becoming a foundational block within my journey.

​            Pattabhi Jois and Adriene Mishler are two of my biggest influences and inspirations for my practices but many others walk by my side such as the Dalai Lama, Baba Ram Dass, Desmond Tutu, Bob Marley, Joe Black, and Hayao Miyazaki. With these influences, I have been able to build a dedicated and challenging practice. This has given her the ability to learn how to deepen, explore, and play to better discover what yoga means to her.

           In 2022 I finally took the leap and began my studies to become a yoga teacher. Becoming a part of YOGAMU has been an absolute blessing, helping me see where my happiness truly lies. And that? is in yoga, in teaching, in sharing the practice of yoga with you. After receiving certification in early 2023 I began studying Meditation and quickly became certified in breathwork. Now, I am teaching the beautiful humans who journey through White Point Nova Scotia and continuing my studies to become a Yoga Therapist through YOGAMU and bring you all an even deeper more personal experience through yoga. 

​            Unity, above all, is at the core of yoga as it is derived from the Sanskrit word, yuj, which is the root of the word "yoke". Today, in the west, it may be difficult to find a yoke (unless you visit my parents and happen to gaze above their dinning room table) but without one, today wouldn't exist. Farmers would use a yoke to take a mature ox and yoke them together with a younger ox, giving experience to the youthful oxen, creating a more stable plow for the future. How fitting. Together, we can create a more stable plow for the future. Because today, like the oxen of yesterday, we're building for tomorrow. Each movement, each moment and each breath, bringing us closer to self. <3

        So, Thank you. To all who have joined me in practice over the last few years. It has been a gift to flow along with you, to breathe with you and to be with you.
Shanti, Peace to you all, and I wish you a beautiful journey.
