I practice trauma stewardship and believe that Yoga on and off the mat is a 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).
Since 2000, I have worked in the field of settlement and integration
- first with recently arrived resettled refugees to Canada, then coordinating a Connecting Cultures group for immigrants from around the world, and ultimately writing public policy for the federal government on Community Connections.
I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Arts (MA) in International Development and I work to build welcoming and inclusive spaces.
Day to day, I practice Yoga in my studio at home, work with people one-on-one, and offer Therapeutic Yoga classes (currently online) through PranaShanti Yoga Centre.
