When I first started practicing yoga, my main focus was on the physical benefits of yoga, on improving my strength and flexibility. Over the years, my attitude towards my practice has changed. I am still very grateful for the physical benefits that my practice brings but it’s the moments of peace and calm that I can find in the asanas that brings me back to my mat each day. The more often I find these moments of peace on the mat, the more I am able to take that feeling with me off the mat and into the busy world. This opportunity to teach yoga is so exciting for me because I would love the opportunity to teach other people the skills that would allow them to find those moments of peace as well.
I have worked at B.C. Children’s Hospital since 2000 as a pediatric ultrasound tech. Besides my yoga practice, my other true love is music. When I’m not practicing yoga, out running, playing the piano or singing, I’m usually spending time with my husband and two boys, Micah and Noah at the hockey rinks, being an enthusiastic fan.
