Since taking that first yoga class, I've continued along a most scenic path to becoming a therapeutic yoga teacher. Some of the highlights along the way have included, Karma study programs at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, the Service & Study program at Salt Spring Centre of Yoga, Vipassana meditation courses, and opportunities to live and work in mindful communities around the world. Such yogic immersion opportunities have greatly enhanced my understanding and practical applications of yoga.
In 2002, I completed a 200-hour Dharma Yoga & Meditation teacher training led by Tai Sheridan (inspired by the teachings of Zen Buddhism). Training with Yoga Calm & Global Family Yoga have supported me in creating summer camps and relaxing yoga classes for kids. In 2015, I completed Yoga North's 500-hour SomaYoga training. I continue to learn, practice, and teach yoga with an ever growing interest and appreciation.
As a mobile, independent yoga studio, lovingly named Seasons Change Yoga, I am committed to teaching yoga in ways that move, change, and grow. What was true yesterday is not necessarily true for today. Honoring the law of constant change, each practice is approached with a sense of newness and wonder. Whether repeating a familiar movement, or learning something new, the practice is always aligning with presence. Our true and unchanging Buddha nature is in the here and now.
