My introduction to yoga began at 16 with two videos and a mat from Costco. I was intrigued by this unfamiliar exercise, and the promise of greater flexibility and strength. I continued an on-again off-again yoga relationship for many years. About 10 years ago I revisited yoga with other goals in mind: relaxation and self-care. With regular practice, I started experiencing all kinds of benefits (including many unexpected ones). This led to my own deeper inquiry of yoga. In 2018, I completed my 200 Hour Teacher Training with South Okanagan Yoga Academy (SOYA) and registered with Yoga Alliance. Since January 2019, I've enjoyed sharing the practice with my community.
As for my non-yoga background, I help run Hunniford Gardens and my landscaping business, Gardenfreak Flowerbed Design. In summer you'll find me gardening or hanging out with my dog pack. In winter, I enjoy travelling, long walks, reading and other creative pursuits.
