What first brought my attention to yoga was a recommendation from a physiotherapist as a treatment for a condition I have. I was very impressed as It helped me immediately and I felt like I belonged in the yoga world.
I learned a bit about the philosophy of yoga that year and found I wanted to know more. I was attracted to teacher training because I wanted to learn everything I could.
I’m a graduate of the 200-hour teacher training at South Okanagan Yoga Academy (S.O.Y.A.) under the instruction of Marion McConnell who along with her husband Bob own and operate the academy. Through S.O.Y.A.’s ongoing training I’ve attended several annual retreats lead by internationally renowned yoga masters such as Erich Schiffmann, Rod Striker, Sri Dharma Mittraand Mark Stevens to name a few. I have been teaching Yoga at the Kelowna Family Y for the past 12 years,
What I’ve come to love about Yoga is it allows you to connect mind, body and spirit. Through this connection you can move energy through your body bringing you to a calm place in your heart.
My other loves are my family especially my grandchildren, my garden and time with friends and family.
