Real Talk, a while back, I was blissfully unaware of the impact my perspectives and choices were having on my mind, body and soul. It wasn't till my youngest son was born, where I was hit by the truth. I was 29, a stay at home Mom, I had spent 7 years in school, was in massive debt, I was awakening to my traumas, my fear, my anger and my pain. My family fractured, I cracked under the pressure. I was depressed, stressed, struggling with anxiety, struggling with chronic pain and numbing it all out whenever I could with the usual culprits, tv, food, sex, drugs etc. I fought every day, to get up, to show up, for my family, for my kids. It sucks, but its the truth. I struggled until I decided to take responsibility, to take hold of my life, I decided to take care of "me".
So, I decided to try yoga. And, I fell in love, For the first time in a long time, I felt at peace, I felt strong, connected, and so fired up. I was free. It was through my own yoga practice that I learnt to love myself again and from there chose to turn everything around. I realized that my adversity had the potential to make me stronger, wiser. I learnt to accept the lesser than perfect parts of me. To observe my own patterns and biases. Life began to grow into new and beautiful ways of being, perfect in its own imperfection.
I decided to further my education in yoga getting my 200hr yoga training March 17, 2017 with Happy Jack Yoga in the beautiful Muskoka. I am now a registered yoga instructor with the Yoga Alliance and am completely insured to teach wherever the wind blows me. I am proud to say I have been teaching yoga for over 3 years now, logging over 200 hrs in classes and counting. Yoga is just the beginning,
I studied art and design for 7 years at the Helen and Arches Center for Art, graduating from Interior Design, Jewellery & Metals and Goldsmithing. I wake up every day excited to create, happy to share my love of art, yoga and magic with the world. My strengths have always been in creative expression. There couldn't be a better match. Being able to help people tap into their own creativity, expression and power for creation is a blessing to me. It is what I love to do. I was always told that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. I have to say this is true. I have nothin but excitement for the adventure.
