Yoga Instructor (500 hr YTT + 200 hr Kundalini)
PhD Candidate, Art and Visual Culture, Western Ontario
Amidst a buzzing schedule, yoga is the constant in my life.
My personal practice helps me find balance between a busy work calendar, filled with curating, teaching art history, running a university art gallery, and working toward the completion of my PhD.
Inspired by a love of teaching and a commitment to wellness, I decided to complete my Yoga Teacher Training, and am now a 500 hr Yoga Teacher + am trained in 200 hr Kundalini.
Patterns of stress and anxiety tend to find a way into our lives, with agendas of late nights, early mornings, and what sometimes feels like an endless stream of deadlines and commitments; little sleep and full days lead us to exhaustion. Finding yoga and breath-work continues to offer me the opportunity to slow down and begin to cultivate a more mindful awareness around and within my daily life.
“Moving the body allows your body to tell its story, and it helps connect us more closely to our minds; some days we have a long story, other days a shorter story. Some days the story can be really difficult to tell, and sometimes it just feels natural. Whatever the story may be, whatever you arrive with, I invite you to welcome yourself onto your mat with compassion, kindness, and patience, and care."
Thanks for being here xo
