 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.  I finally admitted to myself that I was in an abusive relationship. The odds seemed to be against me as I had next to no resources. I cracked open under the pressure. Little did I know that this would be the path to my wildest dreams. 

 

I was tired of being depressed, stressed, struggling with anxiety, struggling with chronic pain. The final straw was the weekend I was raped, had my arm fractured and then lost my home, my children and my dogs. This is when I decided to take responsibility, to take hold of my life, I decided to take care of "me". I knew numbing it all out was not the answer so I decided to get to work. I showed up every day. It sucked, it was hard, emotionally, mentally and physically. I can't count the number of times I wanted to give up; the amount of times people doubted my success.    

 

Yoga was the place where I "saved myself".  I fell in love,  with who I was, for the first time in a long time. I felt at peace, I felt strong, connected, and so fired up.  I was free an no longer needed the approval from the outside. It was through my own dedicated yoga practice that I learnt to rise from the ashes and from there everything turned around.  I realized that my adversity made me stronger, wiser.  I learnt to accept the lesser than perfect parts of me, to find beauty in them, to see my strength.  To observe my own patterns and biases. Life began to grow into new and beautiful ways of being, perfect in its own imperfection.  I took my power back. 

 

After getting my 200hr yoga training March 17, 2017 with Happy Jack Yoga in the beautiful Muskoka.  I was a registered yoga instructor with the Yoga Alliance and am completely insured to teach across Canada.  I am proud to say I have been teaching yoga for over 3 years now, logging over 200 hrs in classes and counting.  Yoga was 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 in 2012, the same year my 1st baby was born.  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. 

A big thank you to those who make my heart work: Everett, Eli, Sean and Pickles. 

To my family, I wouldn't be where I am without you. Thank you and I love you.
