Yoga has helped me overcome paralyzing fears and chronic pain. When I found yoga, I found my true purpose in life.
As Studio Director and owner of Radiant Joy Yoga, I teach a variety of drop-in classes, series classes, workshops and our 200 Hour Professional Yoga Teacher Training program. I also offer private yoga therapy consultations and Reiki healing treatments.
My mission is to teach and practice yoga with fearlessness, compassion and intuition. On my right arm is my dharma name, Radiant Joy of the Heart.
I’m also a certified Insanity instructor.
I discovered yoga when I was pregnant with my first child in 2007, but yoga did not become an important part of my life until after my third baby was about 6 months old, in 2011. At that point the mat was calling me and I began a more focused yoga journey.
Initially I loved how yoga changed my body, but it soon began to give me more. The more yoga I did the more I fell I love with it. Before long, I felt drawn to becoming a yoga teacher.
I have a great passion for yoga that I love to share!
My yoga journey began over a decade ago. As a both student and a teacher, I have been influenced by an eclectic mix of dynamic teachers and yoga philosophy. Through the practice of yoga I have learned to let go of the past, to listen to my heart & to enjoy the moment. I have learned that I am exactly where I am meant to be.
Join me, with a sense of humour & precise instruction, we will explore an alignment based practice suitable for all. Together we will experience a gentle stretch while building strength and improving flexibility and balance. We will use the breath to establish a deep connection between the mind, the body & the spirit.
You will leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and restored.
I have a long history and passion for wellness, having made a career out of educating others about the value of optimal health. As a massage therapist, I have seen how chronic muscle tension is often rooted in an imbalanced mind and body.
Currently working within the physical health department at an addiction facility, I have seen how an untreated soul leads to chronic problems of the mind and body. I have been an avid yogi since high school and know firsthand how transformative it can be. My desire to become a yoga instructor was rooted in my love of people and for fostering positive change. I am a registered yoga instructor, having achieved the 200 required hours of training and supervision.
My aim is for people to find enjoyment in life and attain the highest level of spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health. Yoga can lead you to these possibilities!
I was first introduced to yoga when I was 15 yrs. old but drifted away from my practice as an adult while raising my family.
In 2010 I was injured in an auto accident and was told by specialists that I would have to learn to live with the pain and limitations from my injuries. So, seven weeks after the accident I started back to my mat and a gentle yoga practice. Month by month I improved. There were fewer headaches, more movement and strength!
I am proof that yoga works for injury recovery. My health & spirit have flourished in my yoga practice. I have completed the 200hr Certification Program at Radiant Joy and I am so excited to help enable students in their recovery. Join me for a gentle yoga class and find your sense of wellness.
A life journey through the many components of fitness, lifestyle and wellness have brought me to my mat.
I am a lifelong student and teacher of wellness.
The combination of Pilates and Yoga have made me stronger, wiser, better balanced (in every sense of the word) and more finely tuned to myself, my family and those around me.
Teaching is a part of my very soul and spirit. I look forward to having an opportunity to meet, teach and share my love of ‘the mat’ with each of you.
Fitness is something I have always been passionate about. Regular exercise is a vital part of my life that gives me the chance to de-stress and renew my energy, and as an elementary teacher this has become a necessity.
I love a challenge and INSANITY certainly fits that bill! It has challenged me both physically and mentally – pushing me beyond my comfort zone and helping me discover that I can do more than I think. I have more energy and feel stronger.
I am a certified INSANITY instructor and am excited to help other people reach their fitness goals. Besides this certification, I am also a Water Art certified instructor, teaching AquaFitness classes for five years.
I am thankful for a healthy body that allows me to maintain an active lifestyle and continue to do the things I love.
I first discovered yoga as a tool to destress in university. Through the years yoga has become a more prominent and vital part of my daily life. Yoga has helped me to strengthen my body and heal it physically and mentally.
I grew up as a dancer and studied nutrition in university, so health and wellness have always been important to me. Until I practiced yoga, I never realized there was something missing in my daily rituals – understanding and experiencing the mind body connection which yoga offers.
In my classes, you will begin to enrich your body with the benefits yoga has to offer as you link movement and breath together and discovering what your body is capable of and to ultimately enrich your life.
