These are the words my students used to describe me. I certainly try to be as authentic and real as possible. It’s important to me because I truly believe that if we all embraced our truest selves, the world will be a much wider, freer, more inspiring place.
As Maty Ezraty said, “practicing yoga is a privilege. And with this privilege, comes a duty” to share my practice and to spread our lights. That’s my goal, intention and purpose. That’s what I’m here to do: to fan YOUR inner flames.
One of my teachers in Canada prompted me to become a yoga teacher in 2008. Then eventually, I asked my teachers to apprentice under them. Once I completed my apprenticeship, I was made part of a Yoga Teacher Training faculty at Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio, the oldest yoga studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
After a few years of being loved, cocooned and nurtured as a yoga teacher, I listened to the signs from the Universe (quite literally, and I’ll tell that story another time) and led to Bali, Indonesia. I, then, created my own yoga school in 2014 and built an intimate beachfront yoga space in Sumatra, Indonesia.
My classes, like life, shift and change all of the time. In my perfectly imperfect, unorthodox way, I lead practices that include meditation, pranayama (breath work), vinyasa, yin and power in order to observe our minds and help become awakened human beings just a little bit more than yesterday.
