Modifications, assistances and props all come with, and are very valuable to, your Yoga practice. Each of us are individuals with our unique life experience, and over time, we each developed our own issues but there is no reason to let these obstacles stand in the way of our growth!!!

Side Plank – Vasisthasana

Not my easiest pose as I have my own issues – I am going on 49 this year and have had my share of car accidents, and snowboard and bike wipe-outs, I also inherited degenerative disc disease and carpal tunnel syndrome from years of hairdressing. I have learned that it’s my body, my practice, and my asana! And with a few modifications, I can now hold Vasisthasana using my breath to focus, gazing down instead of up and adjusting my arm to take the pressure off my wrist. The key is to use what we have instead of putting the pressure of being perfect is what makes your practice your own, which makes it more rewarding and represents actual self-care!!!!🧘🏻‍♀️

Karma Yoga

As the new year approaches, it seems like a good time to reflect on the last year, create room for some new habits, and move forward with the endless possibilities of the new. A good way to get in the flow is to create the intentional desire to give yourself an hour every day for some self-care, movement, breathing and be all that you can be!


I will be offering my first session of Karma Yoga by donation of the year from January 7th to February 1st at Om Studio in Manson’s Hall. I invite all of you – my neighbours and visitors alike – to join me to “awaken yourself from the inside out” using breath, postures and  movement, and get 2019 started in a positive direction. Doors open at  9 am! Come find a spot and get prepared for a 60-min class which includes Regenerative and Vinyasa flow yoga on Mondays to Fridays.

In case group classes are not your thing or you have specific needs you would like to address, please email me to book a private session. I am offering time slots on Mondays to Fridays at 10:30 am for free consultations to sit with you and create a plan that suits your lifestyle and needs.

Wishing you peace and harmony
