“I teach for the love of teaching, from the heart.”
 
I think this describes me the best. Valuing the balance and awareness that yoga & teaching have provided me with and being grateful to share the love, fun and enthusiasm with others. I started my teaching experience with step, aerobic and toning classes in 2004 as a certified instructor. After a while and literally by (knee) accident, I discovered the benefits of yoga for myself. And loved it!
 
Curious to learn more, I became internationally certified for BodyBalance/BodyFlow™ (a unique blend of Tai Chi, Yoga & Pilates) in 2007.
 
I completed my previous fitness trainings with RYT-200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program, the highest of standards of South Okanagan Yoga Academy (SOYA; RYS registered yoga school) and upgraded to RYT-500 as a Wholistic Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher. Furthermore my credentials include YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider) as well as the qualification as E-RYT-200 Yoga Instructor (Experienced Yoga Teacher; 1,000 teaching hours taught in 2 years only).  
 
2012 was the year I took my first Yin Yoga Training with Michael Taylor, followed by Bernie Clark's training in 2013. These teachings changed everything for me!
 
In October 2013 I completed my iRest® Yoga Nidra Level I training (Integrative Restoration)
in Banff, a concept developed by Dr. PHD Richard Miller.
 

Motivated and supported by family, friends and yogis, I began offering Yin Yoga Trainings in 2015 to the yoga community. Growth is ever present as research constantly reveals so many new, brilliant facts about fascia and connective tissue!

 
Currently I find myself being a E-RYT500 teacher and YACEP for Yoga Alliance, meaning Continuing Education Provider. (people who take trainings with me receive points to keep their certification by Yoga Alliance).
 
The teachers I had the chance to study with and that inspired and/or continuously mentor me are:
 
Marion Mugs McConnell
Yogacharya / Dr. Ananda Balayogi Bhavanani
Dr. Gil Hedley
Dr. Tom Myers
Helen Mikuska
Paula Carnegie Fehr
Satyabhama Ashley-Farrand
Bernie Clark & Diana Batts
Eoin Finn
Anne Douglas
Michael Taylor
 
Other workshops I attended to deepen my knowledge and understanding about yoga are "Shiva and Shakti" puja, mantra and meditation (3 days with Satyabhama Margalot Ashley-Farrand), anatomy (I love anatomy, Susie Hately), kundalini yoga (2 days with Guru Amandeep Singh), ayurveda yoga (with Paula Carnegie Fehr), meditation (with Anomi Bearden). Learning & studying never stops...
