Yoga is Life! Life is Yoga!
In 1984 I saw a woman in a magazine doing a headstand and my quest began. This is what I wanted to learn. My first teacher was Lilias Folan on PBS. I had the pleasure to meet her and do a workshop in 2006. The YWCA was my first group Yoga class, until we moved to the Ottawa Valley in 1990. I found a local Kripalu Teacher, Joanne Murray, and a Dance teacher Margaret Atkinson. In 1993 I connected with ‘The Art of Living Foundation” and did the Kriya Yoga course. My personal practice evolved into a two year Yoga Teacher Training with Synergy Yoga, founded by Ruth Dargan. I taught at the YMCA and various Gyms for the past ten years.
My practice has seen many twists and turns and I have had the pleasure of learning from teachers such as; Diane Bruni of Downward Dog, Todd Norian, Ashaya, Baron Baptiste, Power Yoga, 3H0, Kundalini Yoga, Seane Corn, Vinyasa and many other teachers who have taught at the International Yoga Conference and local teachers who and continue to inspire me. My teaching style has a mix of flowing movements, strength, flexibility, sound and breath. I am grateful for all the Yogis and Yogini’s I have met on my journey. I am blessed to share with every-body that makes a commitment to live their Yoga. I teach a weekly class at the Killaloe Friendship Club and have plans to open a studio in the near future.
