October 2-29 Teacher Training
Anamaya, Montezuma, Costa Rica
Namaste fellow yogis,
I’m Canadian, born in Vancouver, from an organic and holistic home, first introduced to yoga at age four, by my grandmother, who began her practice at age twenty. My summers were spent on a forty acre horse farm with lots of other animals. My grandparents and aunt and uncle, my moma and I would practice yoga in the early morning and then do chores and have breakfast. I lost interest in yoga as a teen but came back intensely in my early twenties after a spiritual realization in a waterfall, Mala Noche, in Nosara, Costa Rica. My family has been vacationing to Costa Rica for over ten years and I now live in Nosara, on the Nicoya peninsula, along the Pacific Coast.
I opened and operated a studio, by design from the ground up for those new to yoga, the first studio in a suburb of Vancouver. After three years teaching fifteen to twenty classes per week, carrying the budget and micro managing everything, I fried my system and burnt out, so, I traded the biz for life and liberty in the jungle and on the beaches of Costa Rica.
I have several certifications with over 1500 hours of teaching to all ages and levels of ability, my focus is on safely guiding clientele through physical postures with emphasis on alignment and the breath, my knowledge base is founded on practiced techniques to heal mind/body/spirit, strengthen and lengthen, release stress, increase awareness, cultivate acceptance and promote an enriching personal practice from the earth up!
Hatha, Arkaya, Kundalini, Yin, Power/Flow/Ashtanga, Partner, Restorative, Laughter, Nada, Nidra, Kids, Applied Psycho–Neurobiology, Mental Field Therapy, Toning, Music, Massage and Zen Zwing Inversion Therapy.
