Nearly 20 years ago, I learned the words to an ancient Tibetan Buddhist prayer called the Four Immeasureables. The teaching of these "sublime attitudes" -- loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity -- planted a seed and when I began to study Yoga in 2010, I saw the connection to Sutra 1.33 from Patañjali.

 

As a lifelong student, I honour all wisdom traditions and give thanks to my teachers. I'm deeply inspired by the Celtic spiritual practices of my Welsh and Irish ancestors. 

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

As we widen our circles of care, we create systems that genuinely benefit all beings and the Earth. As an Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500), my approach is anti-oppressive to support everyone in thriving. I also hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Arts (MA) in International Development. My offerings are informed by 15+ years of experience building cohesive communities.

Krishnamacharya and Desikachar.jpeg

A note of gratitude to my root teacher, T.K.V. Desikachar, for sharing yoga with the world. Desikachar’s father and teacher T. Krishnamacharya is commonly referred to as ‘the father of modern yoga’. Desikachar’s therapeutic yoga program, called Vinyoga, focuses on adapting for the individual. His method encouraged individuals to attune inward with childlike curiosity. In 1966, when yoga was not a serious profession, things began to change when Desikachar started to teach Krishnamurti, a famous philosopher whose health improved significantly under the guidance of Desikachar.
