Yoga is one of our best defences for combatting stress and disease that can result from toxic build-up. It is not just about sweating, twisting, and getting in shape, but also addressing the entire ecosystem of ourselves. The body and mind are complementary. Together, they can be used to modify states of stress, anxiety, low moods, or depression.

Yoga is the best way to help relieve stress, without relying on medications that simply mask real issues. Our society today has little time to waste on ineffective treatments and more research now attributes long-term success to holistic approaches like yoga.

The alarming statistics of individuals suffering from stress and anxiety is disheartening. There is much evidence to show that yoga calms the mind and, in turn, leads to higher job satisfaction, better sleep, and healthier relationships. You also gain better clarity and even patience.

There is very good research indicating that yoga can:

  • Help manage and reduce pain
  • Improve a person’s mobility and stability
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower heart rate
  • Improve sleep
  • Boost mood
  • Lower anxiety and stress levels
  • Provide the ability to think more clearly
  • Give more energy
  • And so much more

My Yoga Practice

Yoga has been a part of my life for over 10 years. My practice has helped me grow stronger and become more fearless, both on and off the mat. It has inspired me to live each moment more mindfully.

I completed my 200-hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training and will always be a student of the practice. In my classes, I love to combine creative sequencing and a spirit of playfulness, where you laugh and sometimes cry, but it feels good!

Yoga is all about freedom and release. My hope is that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished, and balanced.
