I’ve been the athlete, and the person in recovery, so I understand the spectrum.

I believe in you. I believe in what your body is capable of. I believe that there are many answers to ‘why’ we move, but the most important one to me, is yours.

EXPERTISE

Over 20+ years of movement education

From dancing with Canadas National Ballet, to working with physiotherapist’s creating movement specific rehabilitation programs. I have had the pleasure of working with a vast array of injuries, rehabilitation and fitness goals.

Set up for success

Our body is a little bit different every day. I offer different levels of challenge, different lengths of classes, and different types of class so that there is always something for you to enjoy!

Your practice, Your choice

Ultimately YOU know your body best. I believe in listening and finding your own unique range of tension. I will always provide options so that you can find the pace that fits you best.

Moving can be fun!

It’s not just about the physical. If we can have a laugh, or a giggle, or even sometimes shed a tear, we can connect in a way that goes beyond movement. We are community.1
