In 2003, I learned the words to a traditional Tibetan Buddhist prayer called

the Four Immeasurables, also known as the brahmavihārās or sublime attitudes:

loving kindness, compassion, empathetic joy, and equanimity

Maitri – Karuna – Mudita – Upeksanam – Sukha – Dukha –

Punya – Apunya – Visayanam – Bhavanatah – Chitta – Prasadanam


When I began to study Yoga in 2010, I saw the connection with Yoga Sutra 1.33 from Patajali. The Four Immeasureables practice began with pre-Buddha sages and the Sutras highlight how to cultivate these four heart-centered qualities in daily life.

My path has been graced by teachers from all walks of life. With gratitude,

I honour these wisdom traditions and Yoga's rich 5,000+ year history.

I believe that the embodied practice of Yoga on and off the mat is a

radical pathway to personal transformation and collective liberation

As an educator, my approach is trauma-informed to meet diverse needs with care.

I am a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500).

Building inclusive communities where all people can thrive has been the focus

of my career since 2000. With a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and 

Master of Arts (MA) in International Development, I continue to develop policy on Community Connections for the federal government. Since 2002, I have worked in various capacities to support newcomer settlement and integration across Canada.

.Most days, you can find me practicing, offering public Therapeutic Yoga classes and private sessions, and coordinating the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training (HYTT)

300 Hour Program at PranaShanti Yoga Centre in Ottawa, Ontario.
