I write with the intention in reducing the gap between a formal biography and the authentic journey of where I am today.
I grew up in a small farm town in BC. The town is lined by rivers and trees sitting at the base of glorious mountains. My connection to earth medicine practices started naturally when I was very young.
From elementary to high school I battled with anxiety, depression and body image issues. When I finally found weight lifting at 18 this became a change agent for my life.
It was the VERY start of my journey to self healing. My diet changed as did my outlook on life. I shifted from being unhappy to endorphin induced highs.
The game changer for me to really restructure my life was when I had my first car accident at 19.
My whole world flipped upside down, it was rehabilitation that taught me how to respect my body and how to LISTEN to my body.
Fast forwarding 6 years later this marks where the biggest shifts of my life occurred. Here I started the awareness of a deep connection made between my mental states in direct impact on my physical states.
Hatha was the starting point, it made sense anatomically. I soon found myself wanting a deeper education.
An old friend had been asking me to try a Kundalini class for a while and I was resistant to the idea.
I finally went to a Kundalini class and WOW. Because of this class I was FOREVER changed.
I felt liberation. I felt free. I felt ALIVE. I knew that I needed this feeling in my life EVERY-DAMN-DAY!
Over the next few years a community formed in South Surrey where deep healing and profound growth was occurring. I found myself more and more in alignment with my purpose. I saw the connections and deep friendships establishing in my studio, Savage Yoga.
Seeing these transformations within myself, over the years of deep self study, and seeing them in my students is beyond humbling work.
These experiences and trainings, formally and informally, have lead me to developing new treatment styles for private therapy and yoga. To become an innovator and merge what I had learned in rehabilitation and yoga both personally and professionally into a new treatment style that embodies ALL of you for optimizing your healing. Not just focusing on one aspect of you.
I am now currently adding to my classes in forms of progressive series locally and on an online platforms. I am engaging in empowering Prenatal Yoga practices combining my skills and knowledge into revolutionizing Prenatal Yoga. I offer the sweet slowness and deep respect of Yin Yoga practices. Where it was an opportunity to find stillness and an intimate connection to the body. While working on empowering the entire Self through intuitive Kundalini practices.
Please join me as I continue to write my story in new venues and practices. Reducing the divide between mental and physical health. Making healing simple.
