Biography

Why do I do yoga?…..because I want to show up, for myself, for the people I love and for the people I see even if for a second. My practice of yoga brings me here, not in the meetings of last week or the many aspirations for the future.

Every individual’s reasons for beginning and continuing a yoga practice are unique. I arrived at the first step inadvertently through a Jivamukti yoga class in Saskatoon, Canada. The ever enthusiastic beginner I was instantly hooked and spend the next five years exploring classes and workshops in different styles of Vinyasa yoga and meditation including Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Sivananda, Tibetan Heart Yoga as well as Shambala Meditation and Transcendental Meditation. My practice of yoga has become essential to my work in humanitarian law and I continue to expand my understanding of how these two fields intersect.

I completed my 200 RYT with Zuna Yoga, a inter-disciplinary school of yoga built on the Tantric tradition of Sri Vidya. Zuna emphasizes uniting with our authentic self through the sthira sukham asanam. The practice of finding stillness and ease through the breath in a dynamic asana practice.

Come move, sweat and breathe in a Zuna Yoga class!
