Nearly 20 years ago, I learned the words to an ancient Tibetan Buddhist prayer called the Four Immeasureables. These "sublime attitudes" or virtues are loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Seeds were planted and when I began to study Yoga in 2010, I saw the connection to Sutra 1.33 from Patanjali.

 

As a lifelong student, I honour Yoga's roots and offer deep bows to the ancient sages of India, modern scholars around the world, and my brilliant teachers. I'm also gratefully inspired by the Celtic spiritual practices of my Welsh and Irish ancestors. As an Animist, I believe that all things - creatures great and small, plants, waterways, trees, rocks, human handiwork, and words - possess a distinct essence.

I practice trauma stewardship and believe that Yoga on and off the mat is a pathway to personal transformation and collective liberation

When we widen our circles of care, we create systems that genuinely benefit all beings and the Earth as a whole. As an educator, my approach is trauma-informed and strengths-based to meet diverse needs with great care. I hold supportive space for every body - people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations and identities, sizes, abilities, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. My aim is for all people to feel well-resourced in greeting life - especially given the current context.

I'm a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500). I also hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Arts (MA) in International Development. My therapeutic offerings are informed by 15+ years of experience related to building welcoming and inclusive communities.
