Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? – Marianne Williamson
Yoga found its way to me five years ago when a studio opened next to my workplace. Immediately I was hooked on the way it made me feel clear headed, confident and content. Yoga has been something I’ve turned to over and over again when I need to love myself a little more.
In November 2016 I travelled to Indonesia to participate in a 200hr Intensive Yoga Teacher Training put on by Akasha Yoga Academy where I studied classical Hatha style yoga. It was the best thing I’ve ever gifted to myself and I left Bali feeling accomplished, proud and ready to share what I learnt with the world.
A few months after I returned to Canada I enrolled in an additional 25hr Yoga for Athletes Training through Empowered Yoga in Edmonton, Alberta. Combining anatomy, myofascia release techniques and sport specific sequencing it was the boost I needed to pursue my passion for yoga full time.
Less than a year after my YTT in Bali I quit my full time job and started my own business. You can now find me teaching a variety of classes around Vernon, BC Canada. Take a look at my travel blog if you’re interested in taking your own destination YTT and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
