SENIOR EDUCATOR since 2007
Ahhh, this fine craft…my love affair with breath and movement began as a toddler, and it took form as an uncontrollable desire to swing, sway, dip, dive and lengthen. From the age of three on i was graced with a natural innate sort of discipline to study the body and its capabilities through classical ballet mostly, and many other styles of dance… but, ballet was my love. I danced, I studied, I traveled and I taught…this at 15 yrs old revealed the natural teacher in me, and so I became a dance teacher!
Movement connected me to my soul, this was very clear, so again very naturally at 18yrs i began sitting with myself, meditating i’d guess you’d call it…i felt i needed it, and it interested me…and it worked! In very tiny doses it too showed me another way of feeling whole and alive, like dancing had done. On my own, in the country i began to incorporate some yoga postures into my days and i found myself at dance auditions going off into a corner to do Tree and Triangle and breathe deep to calm and prepare myself.
I fell in love with this tool and felt it to be such a gift. By accident i stumbled on a teacher in Kingston who offered training and without question i emptied my bank account and learned! Since that day almost 10 years ago i have been leading classes that are based in and for “YOU” the student, in hopes that you too catch a fleeting or long lasting moment of joy, connection, spirit, or simply a love for extension, movement or stillness.
Deep roots, foundation and a lot of love, Namaste
