I have always been a physically active person, but as I got older, the thought of going to a gym became less appealing for me. I tried Pilates for a while, but that wasn’t quite what I was looking for. About 7 years ago, a friend suggested I try a vinyasa flow yoga class. I was hooked! I loved it! My dosha is Pitta, so naturally I was drawn to the physical aspects of yoga. It wasn’t until I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training (July 2015) that I started to realize the importance of the mind/body connection. I believe the physical aspect of yoga will always be important to me, but lately I find myself being drawn to the movement/breath connection.
One of the things I love about yoga is that it’s accessible to everyone. I believe there is benefit for every single person who comes to their mat. For me, yoga means a calm mind and a strong body without judgement. Yoga is about personal growth and development. I look forward to continuing to learn and evolve as a yoga teacher – there is always something new to discover and sometimes, old habits to let go of. I hope my classes are fun, challenging and guide participants to reach their full potential.
I have two fantastic children – my daughter Jamie lives in Turks & Caicos and my son Clinton attends STFX University. When I’m not working, I love to hang out with my two furry friends. Bruce is a 7 year old Weiner dog and Tiger is a 2 year old Potcake from Turks & Caicos.
I look forward to sharing space and breathe with you on the mat!
