In 2004, I had been taking yoga classes and was a student for many years before I decided to pursue this side of my life further. And so it began, first with Susie Dias in 2007, and then Maureen Rae as I completed all her levels of training and then Dillon Cherrett in 2012 as I completed my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. Since then, I have been in Advanced Yoga Teacher training with the Yoga Centre of Winnipeg for the last 4 years and thank Jan and Shauna for sharing their expertise.


Before this training, I taught fitness classes from 1984 to 2007 enjoying everything from step, sculpt, stretching classes, older adult and more. I still hold my Manitoba Fitness Council Certifications in Exercise to Music, Older Adult, Resistance Training and Evaluator of Fitness Leaders. I also attend yearly conferences to keep learning about the fitness industry trends and more.


I also went down a new path in 2015 as I completed my Navina School of Yoga Therapy Certification as I became a Thai Massage Practitioner. In 2016, I also completed my side-lying series and thank Drew Hume for his continued support, encouragement on this new path in my career.


Overall, I am a lifelong learner and look forward to more Yoga and Thai Massage workshops.  I am also available for presentations for businesses and community fundraisers.
