Classical Tantra/Hatha(Laya) Yoga Teacher - RYT500 Hours 

I have been a practicing Yogini for over 20 years now and a Yoga Teacher for 10.  I first came to yoga weighing almost 300lbs and when I went into a table position my belly would sway along the floor. But I committed to showing up to my new yoga practice every day...  Somedays, I just sat on the mat and cried, but I showed up to the mat.  Since then I have had an active daily yoga practice, I received my 200-hour teacher's certification from Transformation Studio in Oshawa. and have continued my education studying yoga philosophy and Sanskrit.  Today my Sadhana (yoga practice) comes from Classical Hatha Yoga - including Tantra, Mantra, Asana, Pranayama & Meditation. I teach Hatha Vinyasa Yoga and have enjoyed teaching both men and women of all ages, body types and skill levels in yoga studios, gyms and homes.

In October 2017, I graduated from Living in the Self 300-Hour YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) a training which has brought me to the 'HEART' of Yoga (Hridaya), My studies included: Asana, Bandhas & Mudras, Pranayama: Concentration (Dhyana), Meditation, Vedic Chanting., Ayurveda & Yoga philosophy. Additional studies included: Yoga for Specific Populations:  Kids Yoga, Family Yoga, Partner Yoga, Pre & Post Natal Yoga, Yoga for Men, Yoga for an Aging Population, and Yoga for Trauma & Addiction. These teachings have not only deepened by personal practice (sadhana) but has taken my teachings to the next level and allowing me to incorporate new services such as 'Subtle Yoga Therapy' & 'Chair/Desk Yoga' and more.

I believe Yoga to be the cornerstone of my own healing and transformation and the source of my daily joy and well-being.





Reiki

Reiki Master (RM) - Energy Intuitive

Rei in Japanese means "spirit," and ki means "life-force energy." Together, Reiki (ray-key) means "Spiritually guided life-force energy", which is a Japanese spiritual practice that aids the body in releasing stress and tension and creates deep relaxation. The Usui Reiki system, or Usui Reiki Ryoho, was created in Japan by a man named Mikao Usui over 90 years ago and years later brought to the western world by Hawayo Takata. 'Ki' energy (also known as chi, prana or grace) flows through the practitioner and is received by the recipient. Creating deep relaxation and relief of pain or emotional release - Reiki is simple, yet powerful.

In an effort to help my severe chronic pain my father took me to my Level 1 Reiki Course & Certification, knowing nothing about Reiki, Diane Righton started me on the path of Reiki I in the summer of 1998. From that very first class, it was clear that this was something very different. My hands would get very hot and my fellow students reported a deep sense of well-being after receiving a treatment. To be honest, I really didn't believe them at the time (but I sure do now!)  But I continued working with Reiki throughout the years receiving my level II and then my Master's attunement from Master Martin Lee in May 2007.

In the 25 years that I have been working with Reiki Energy the way that I experience and channel these healing energies have shifted and expanded.  Although I still offer traditional Reiki treatments, today I have fused my offerings with a guided relaxation experience that helps connect the client to a deeper healing experience.
