5KM Run Trainer
Certified Fitness Instructor, who is very passionate about keeping active and is determined to encourage and help others to keep moving for a healthy life. Fitness is my therapy, whether I am having a bad or good day. Working out always makes it better. I love to strength train (squats and lunges are my favourites). I enjoy a good dance workout and enjoy going for a 5 or 10KM run. However, in my training session, we will work hard, play hard, we’ll do it with a smile! Please join me in one of my classes. Thank you!

Her initial yoga teacher training was with David Swenson and she has attended numerous workshops including with practitioners Richard Freeman and Douglas Keller.
Integrated Movement Educator
I’m inspired by human expression and potential. I began my career in health and wellness over 15 years ago in an effort to ease my own restless nervous system. Since leaving the corporate world in pursuit of this meaning and substance, I have dedicated my learning to movement education. Starting my exploration in strength involved repetitive movement techniques often at a gym, but then I was able to fine-tune those movements through a deeper understanding of the connections between muscles, fascia, and joints. Through yoga, I was able to layer on the controlled use of breath in the cultivation of a mind-body connection, while Thai massage added an appreciation of touch energy to my movement expertise, and when ELDOA®became a part of my repertoire I felt the pieces of the puzzle all falling into place. Training in a variety of movement disciplines allows for a level of agility and personalization in my educational approach that helps me to create targeted space solutions for individual bodies. Cultivating a mindful practice has helped me feel more at ease in my body, mind, and spirit, and I look forward to helping you create the space you need to feel less stress and more balanced.
