I was introduced to Hatha Yoga during my search for an alternate form of exercise. However, in September 2004 my passion for yoga truly ignited when I stepped into Modo Yoga for my first hot yoga class. Yoga provided me with a balance between body, mind, and spirit that I wasn’t able to find elsewhere.

In April 2006, I deepened my commitment to yoga by completing the 500-hour Modo Yoga Teacher Training program in Thailand. I have since completed Level 1 and Level 2 Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Teacher Training. In 2009, I went on to study Pre-Natal Yoga training with Monica Voss at the Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto.

Outside of the Modo Studio, I share my passion of yoga with my corporate colleagues offering wellness information sessions that focus on “Desk-Side Yoga” and yoga fundraising events for the United Way Campaign.

I encourage students to balance effort with ease in every posture. Being my own witness of personal transformation on and off the mat, I invite students to make that discovery for themselves.
