" I am thankful for my first Bikram Yoga practice in 2007 in Vancouver that has ultimately change the course of my life. With a background of Sports Medicine and a history of being a young competitive athlete myself, I found the passion in teaching what I deeply understand. The muscle work and the chain reaction that every intentional breath, posture or movement can stimulate is fascinating!"
" My first encounter with Hot Yoga was in 2007 when I walked into a Bikram Yoga class in Vancouver. I have from then found other styles of Yoga, Pilates and BodyART all of which has kept me very intuitive , challenged and most importantly balanced in my physical and mental health. My goal is to provide a platform for others to do the same, without any pressure of having to look, feel or be a certain way. Teaching is a joy to me especially when students walk out with a new found or renewed determination to do something amazing in their life!"
