Favourite Pose? Warrior 2
Outside Yoga? I am an enthusiastic life long learner! Student and teacher! Daily practices: Move my body, connect with family and meditation.
Location: Kelowna, BC
Why Baptiste Yoga? I choose Baptiste yoga because it's the practice of possibility. It's the most complete physical practice you could ever find, if I did nothing but Journey Into Power for the rest of my life I would have strong, healthy, supple body and feel great while doing. Yet baptiste yoga is always about being up to something bigger than the pose. The way of living that it brings, and the methodology has changed my life more than any pose ever could, and I'm passionate about sharing that way of living with others.
Favourite Pose? Half Moon with a Bind
Outside Yoga? Outside of yoga I love doing anything outdoors that involves moving my body! Skiing, biking, hiking, camping; finding presence through connecting my body with nature is something I spend as much time as possible doing. On top of my practice in the studio, I'm also a regular in the gym, and you can find me throwing heavy weights around regularly too! Always chasing the perfect balance between strength, power, and flexibility and ease. Yoga has taught me the beauty and necessity of both.
