Hatha Yoga into Meditation - Wednesday 4:00pm to 5:15pm
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!

The Tri Dosha series is a practice stemming from Traditional Tantric lineage. This is a practice of culturing our whole selves in asanas which create physical and metaphysical impact on our beings and invoke a deep state of relaxation. This tradition teaches relaxation of the conscious mind thus allowing the subconscious to express its innate wisdom and healing. You will be guided into an awareness of harmony and sense of your infinite True Self.
Men's Meditation - Thursdays, 6:00pm to 6:45pm
Dedicating nearly ten years of my life to studying food and how different cultures around the world develop based on food accessibility. Understanding the current state of affairs through food consumption and how what we eat geographically shapes culture. I worked in many fine dining restaurants around the world learning how to understand food on a deeper level. Becoming ill, I put my faith in the modern medical systems which failed me time after time. Becoming frustrated I began a different approach and focused on diet and healing from the inside out. This study of food from a different perspective and how to use food as medicine and maintain a healthy functioning body opened up many doors and I began exploring many different avenues. This lead me to understanding the importance of balance between body and mind, and eventually realizing the soul.
Leaving my ordinary job behind I began my spiritual journey that would lead me to traveling across Nepal and India. Challenging myself on a solo adventure through the Himalayas I realized the power of the mind and simultaneously found answers I had been looking for. I would end up living as a monk for nearly half a year and continue these practises daily. Going on pilgrimage to many holy places across Nepal and India, visiting many temples and participating in many spiritual rituals. Returning to Australia I would end up cycling down the eastern coast over 2000km to where I found myself at a massive Eco/Yoga community. There I would focus on deep sadhana as well as perma-culture and understanding the connections and relationships between us an the world. After this I returned back to Nepal and began working in remote village communities to learn ancient techniques of working with the land. Setting up programs that would allow meditation and yoga to schools and using those tools to increase their academics. Also setting up programs that focused daily on healthy food especially fruit to underprivileged children. I continue and always focus on diet as one of the main principals in a spiritual life and continuously study and work on ayurvedic techniques working towards developing a greater understanding and how to apply these forms of healing. Today I continue my yogic practises and have been blessed with so much clarity in my life that I now would like to share this gift with others.

Pranayama Meditation Routine - Tuesdays & Fridays 8:00am to 8:30am, Sundays 10:00am to 10:30am
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.

I'm sure you have heard the phrase "Laughter is the best medicine." The average child laughs between 300 and 400 times per day. By the time we reach adulthood we are reduced to laughing, on average, only 12 times a day!
