What yoga classes are you certified to teach?

Original Hot Yoga (26 & 2)

 

How long have you been practicing the Original 26 & 2 Yoga?

Practiced since 2010

 

When did you graduate from Yoga teacher training?

Spring 2019 with Raja Yoga Academy in Victoria, BC!

 

Why did you decide to become a teacher?

I love hot yoga and the therapeutic benefits it provides. I wanted to deepen my understanding of the yoga so that I could safely share and teach others. I wanted to grow in my own practice and pay forward the positive influence of my instructors

 

What do you like best about teaching?

I love the connections with the students. It is amazing to watch someone look so uncomfortable during their first class, evolve into someone who confidently approaches their practice. Allowing themselves to learn and grow….so cool to see!

What is your favorite yoga posture?

My favorite posture changes. Right now, it is hands to feet pose. After that first back bend, the forward bend and lengthening and decompression of the spine feels so great. On a good day, I can lock my knees, something I would have never imagined being possible.
