The wonders of yoga have woven their way through my life for the past 20 years, but it was at my first Modo class in 2006 when I knew I had discovered something truly extraordinary. The challenge of the posture sequences, the intensity of the heat, and the welcoming and comfortable atmosphere of the studio, all balanced perfectly upon a strong and nurturing community foundation: here, I had found an oasis.
In November of that same year, personal tragedy rocked my world to its roots, and the subsequent struggle to regain my footing has been enormous and at times, seemingly impossible. Modo offers me serenity and gentle support and plays an integral part in my ongoing healing process.
I joined the Energy Exchange Program because I wanted to delve deeper into the amazing community I had found. Then, with the encouragement of my family and my Modo friends, my path led to an incredible trip to Kerala, India in February 2010 where I proudly completed the 4-week Intensive Modo Teacher Training Program. From there, I travelled north to explore the colourful and enchanting capital of Delhi, the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, and the spiritually rich ancient city of Varanasi on the River Ganges.
With this remarkable life experience under my belt, I was over-the-moon delighted to join the teaching crew of Modo Yoga London. In September 2014, I completed the challenging and invigorating Modo Flow Training in Montréal and in July 2017 I was fortunate to experience Yin Teacher Training with Paul and Suzee Grilley.
Beyond yoga, I find pleasure in reading (ravenously!), travelling, foreign and indie films, and walking along the water’s edge in my lakeside village.
