Biography

I first turned to Yoga 25 years ago as a way to relieve the stress of my job as a Child Protection Lawyer in London, England. I started off with VHS tapes at home, and then some classes at a studio, where my best friend and I got thrown out for laughing when we fell over in wobbly postures!

When I moved to Canada to be with my husband in 2002, I was delighted to find the fun and relaxed atmosphere at the Yoga Yard in Red Deer, and was soon taking several classes there a week.  A couple of years after having our last child, I began the 3 year long journey of taking my Yoga Association of Alberta teacher training.  During this time, and I was lucky enough to learn from Dr Ananda, Marion "Muggs" McConnel, David Swenson, Tracey Delfs,  Judith Mirus, Yogi Amandeep Singh and David Wilson.

For the past several years, I have taught in my local communities of Spruce View, Caroline and Sundre, as well as at the Yoga Yard in Red Deer. I teach several different yoga practices, from Yin to Ashtanga (Power flow) classes, as well as Mindfulness and Meditation techniques.  There is always something new to learn - and I have the best teachers in my wonderful students!
