What do you love about yoga?
I love how vast it is - how it can be whatever you need it to be. Whether it’s a deep sigh, sitting in meditation, a challenging pose... it can be whatever you need in that moment. A tool for transformation. Or something to share. It’s a lot of things.
What compelled you to work with kids?
A friend asked me to, and I thought "there is no way I can possibly do this" but it turned out to be really really fun. An opportunity to both learn and mentor at the same time.
What's one of your favourite things to teach in a family class?
Animal movement is my favourite thing to use in kids AND adult classes because it inspires your body to move in a more natural way and it’s fun.
What’s your ‘hood and what do you love about it?
It’s Highland-Stirling, and I love being so close to the Iron Horse and Victoria Park. I like being able to walk everywhere but that it takes me a little longer to get there because I get to notice things along the way.
What’s one of your favourite gems in DTK?
The East African Cafe. I’m not a vegetarian but the vegetarian platter is very good.
What’s something we might not know about you?
I’m currently trying to climb the tree in my backyard. Every day I get a little bit closer, but don’t quite have the upper body strength yet. I know the way up.
What's the last great thing you read?
The book that I have enjoyed most recently is about the female pelvis! I’m struck by how little people know about it in general. I think everyone should be taught about how the pelvis works and how to strengthen the pelvic floor. Most people are dealing with weaknesses that they don’t even know exist.
What can’t you stop listening to?
There’s this song called The Six Day Moment by Lubomyr Melnyk. It makes you feel.
What will your grown-up students love about your class?
That it’s a playful and nurturing mix of traditional yoga poses, movement and self-care.
