Before yoga, my favourite way to move and keep fit was video games. Sitting. Hunching.
Growing up in Ottawa, life was quiet. A wild imagination, but no idea where it would take me.
When first introduced to Yoga at Theatre School in 2007, I came across a photo of someone in a headstand.
I remember thinking to myself: “that is impossible. I will never be able to do that”.
Now, after more than a decade of practice, this story holds a big life lesson.
Since, it has informed everything about my attitude and my mission.
I walk the journey of life as a chameleon. My journey has been – and remains – one of investigation, curiosity and transformation.
I offer my story with the hope to inspire others toward their fullest potential.
Morph into who you really are.
Our modern day world has left us feeling disconnected and distracted;
It is increasingly difficult to tend to our need for peace and quiet in a fast paced, goal driven lifestyle.
My hope is for Yoga to be a place where we can satisfy our craving for achievement and growth,
but doing so while cultivating greater kindness, connection, creativity and ease.
I attempt to be as personal as I can. I am a student of what I teach.
Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary.
Impossible is nothing.
