I grew up traveling the world with my family. After four years in England, we moved to Mumbai, India where I began practicing yoga. Living in India, at school, we practiced yoga before basketball, soccer and other sports. We also were taught it as a warm-up before drama class and productions. Yoga has always been a part of my life.

After graduating from the University of Western Ontario with my B.A. in Sociology, specializing in the sociology of health and aging I traveled to Savusavu, Fiji to pursue my yoga teaching certificate. I was interested in sharing and growing my connection with yoga.

I have been teaching yoga for three years and practising for twelve. I continue to learn and teach all over the world. I run my personal practice in Mississauga and Toronto where I teach outdoor private yoga classes in parks and beaches.

I rented a loft and opened Yogeeny, a studio to teach my private classes through the fall and winter seasons. After a year, I spent four months in Playa Grande, Costa Rica teaching yoga on the beach and learning to surf, before coming back to Canada.

I was offered a job at a surf shop back in Costa Rica not too long after and sold my loft to spend another four months down south. I lived in Playa Danta, Costa Rica to help teach SUP yoga at Pura Vida Ride. I also taught yoga some mornings and sunsets at Las Catalinas at an open studio on the beach behind Pura Vida Ride.

I quickly learned that yoga and surfing go hand in hand. I adapted my yoga to suit the muscles and balance you need to surf the moment I first stood up on a board. The Surfer Flow caught on quick with locals and tourists in Costa Rica and I fine-tuned a Vinyasa and Hatha hybrid to benefit the body while surfing.

Yoga can help you when you’re wiping out, slicing, paddling, popping-up or just trying to stay upright. No matter your skill level or board, bending, stretching and breathing can help and continue to help me everyday!
