Come and Meditate with Us!
Hatha Yoga into Meditation - Wednesday 4:30pm to 5:45pm
The Sanskrit word ‘Yoga’ literally translates as ‘union’, to unite and become one. Traditionally, this refers to the union of the body and mind or the universal self with the individual self. To me, yoga is also about uniting with each other, supporting each other on our yoga journeys & refraining from comparison or judgement.
In addition, I believe that our yoga practice starts with our state of mind, once we accept ourselves exactly as we are & let go of the ego, we can relax into our practice without judgment or self doubt and experience the benefits of this ancient practice.
So far, on my yoga journey, I have explored different styles and levels of yoga as well as continuing to learn about the history and philosophy along the way. As well as deepening my yoga practice, I found myself becoming more and more interested in working with energy and delved deeper into holistic therapies & spiritual practices. After meeting so many inspirational holistic therapists and yoga teachers, it didn’t take me long to decide that I also wanted to be able to share and teach the practice of Yoga and promote wellness throughout the community.
I attended my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in India, the heart and home of yoga! I spent an intensive month studying and practicing yoga and immersing myself in the yogic lifestyle. After graduating, I moved from my home in the North East of England to Banff, a beautiful national park in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, and began teaching and sharing yoga. A dream come true.
I am now settled in Squamish, Canada’s capital of outdoor recreational activities! Living here is incredibly inspirational, we are truly immersed in nature and I am very excited to reach out and continue sharing my yoga and wellness journey with the community of Squamish!

I truly believe that healing - on a deep level - can only happen, when we work with ourselves, when we take the responsibility for our lives, when we become more conscious of ourselves and the world around us.
In my work as a health practitioner and yoga instructor I am guiding you on a journey to reconnect with your true self, to learn to listen to your inner guide again and to become more conscious to obverse what is serving you and to make conscious decisions towards being more content and as a natural consequence healthier.
In my healing sessions and yoga sessions I combine my understanding of Yoga, Meditation and Pranayama with my knowledge in the Manual Treatment Orthobionomy, in Pranic Healing, Traditional Homeopathic and Ear Accupunture to create a space in which you can work with your consciousness, connect with yourself and activate your healing powers.

How life-giving it can be to find one’s own path and to gain insights that awaken and enrich one’s inner life experience! These are the reasons I continue to study and intuitively create Journal Writing experiences and Collage Art for myself.. experiences I want to share with you!
These experiences that have been my life-long teachers. Journal Writing has literally saved my life, brought me to where I am today and been a constant companion to my heart and soul for 4 decades. Exploring its many pathways, I discovered a voice that sounded strangely like my own… one that began to ‘speak’ to me in whispers from a place deep within my being….
Collage Art returned in a big way during my first two courses in Expressive Arts at the Haliburton School of the Arts in 2005. The images I continued to play with are transforming into my own intimate deck of Oracle Cards!
Through these creative and imaginative art forms, you are invited to enter a journey to new awareness and insights, one of growing your imagination and experiencing inner inspiration while awakening to the heart of your own life.
I look forward to guiding your creativity to new views of the horizons beyond~!
