My Journey with Yoga
Began in India, 2007
After a few years of depression and struggle, I tried to heal from the traumatic experiences I endured in my life with no success. My mom sold our home and uprooted our entire family to go live in India so that I could have the opportunity to heal and process all my thoughts and emotions.
This is when my 16-year love affair with yoga began.
While I was in India, I was severely depressed and rarely left the house we lived in. My daily activities included mindlessly watching television, brief interactions with family, eating and occasionally playing cards. One day I was walking through the local market when I was drawn to a small book on yoga. This book was in-depth about the practice of yoga, yet simple enough for me to grasp and start to actually practice postures and yogic cleansing rituals.
I started off teaching my little brother and sister what I learned from the book (actually, I kinda made them do it with me, lol). It was at that moment I felt empowered to take my own well-being into my own hands for the first time. The flame was lit. I remember telling my mom I would host yoga classes for many people to come to and enjoy what I had to offer. It wasn't until 10 years later that would actually become a reality in Okotoks, Alberta.
My teaching style is for those who are looking for dynamic changes and shifts to better their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. My teachings have matured a great deal with the work I have done in mental health for the past 3 years. The main addition to my teaching style has been nervous system healing exercises to help you adapt and better your response to stress.
