At its core, yoga requires nothing more than simply noticing our breath - the length of inhales and exhales. Allowing ourselves to be present and focused on our breath can often lead us to a higher state of mindfulness - deliberately noticing our thoughts, feelings, and emotions.
Most of us cary trauma and stress in our bodies from past experiences. Through practicing mindfulness, we can begin to notice the things we have been holding on to. Perhaps your right hip might feel tight, or you may feel tightness in your chest. This careful, deliberate, and non-judgemental observation helps us gain empathy for ourselves and others, and it allows us to respond - not react - with openness and care.
Working with the breath, we make our way into postures and shapes that over time can assist us in experiencing the physical and mental benefits of combining mindfulness and movement.
I love how yoga brings people together to be in the present moment. After my first time doing yoga 10 years ago in a packed, sweaty, hot yoga class, I loved the feeling of breaking away from the chaos and stress of my every day. I continued practicing yoga and completed my 200-hour teacher training in 2017 through Empowered Yoga.
When I began this career path, I knew that I wanted to approach teaching yoga differently. As yoga gained popularity over the years, I noticed that the hype about it led to common misconceptions about this ancient practice.
One of these misconceptions is that you need to be very fit, flexible, and spiritual to do yoga. Another misconception is that you will only find women in any given yoga class, or that the practice is not physically challenging.
As a yoga teacher, I’ve made it my goal to show you that anyone can do yoga, regardless of fitness level or spiritual beliefs.
Yoga can assist you in improving your flexibility and balance, build strength, and create space to take a break from your to-do list and expectations of your day to day.
I became experienced in yoga while working in male dominated industries, doing physical labour jobs that left my body aching daily. I found that yoga not only released pain from my body, but it also added value to the spiritual side of my life; it calms my mind and it has allowed me to listen closely to my body and intuition. Through teaching, I want to aid others in experiencing the positive effects yoga has had on my mental and physical wellness.
I would like to support you in making yoga part of your life, in whatever way you want it to be – whether it is a spiritual practice that helps you feel focused and grounded, or movement that aids your body in feeling release from pain.

Absolutely! I graduated from a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training from Empowered Yoga and Mindfulness in Edmonton, in December 2017. I have also taken Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Brandon Jacobs Yoga in April 2018. I am continuing my studies and working towards completing a 300hr teacher program. Both institutions are accredited with the Yoga Alliance of Alberta
Beginners are welcome to take part in all yoga classes. Through the course of my teachings I have had a lot of experience teaching newer yogis and feel confident in being able to guide them during the yoga class.
No you definitely don’t. I acknowledge that practicing yoga can place people in a vulnerable position, and I will completely respect your space and boundaries. I will always ask if you are willing to receive adjustments or be touched. However, touch is often not necessary, as I will demonstrate poses and give cues for adjustments around or in front of the participant.
Not at all! You don’t have to be flexible or fit to practice yoga. You just need to be aware of your body and practice at your own pace. Flexibility and fitness are only two of the many benefits of a consistent yoga practice.
