Therapeutic Yoga w/Cielo English E-500RYT, 500-RYT
This session is intended to facilitate more ease in your daily functional movement, improve function, reduce daily pain in your life, promote healing and center your mind. We hold the intention of making this a practice of integration; integration of your breath with your body, your body with your mind, your mind with your consciousness, and your consciousness with your highest Self.
We aim to promote healing to all your body parts that harbor your habitual tension- your shoulders, your hips, low back, hamstrings, and yes, your mind! We focus on slow precise alignment strategies within supportive asana with concentrated awareness on breath as the seat of our practice. Guided meditation/relaxation soothes your nerves and grounds your practice in your own personal way, leaving you ready to have an great night's sleep.

What started my Yoga practice? Visualizations for competative sports.
Once I experienced the connection to myself through the practice there has been no turning back. Curiosity has kept me in deep practice since my early 20's, and has become the underpinnings to everything in my life. The practice has served me by enabling me to stand in my center through some of life's most challenging experiences, and it has saved my life. I am blessed to have the company of devoted practitioners and teachers in my community and have studied with the most brilliant and inspiring Teachers one could ever dream to have. To be doing and living what you love is the biggest gift, and one which I savor everyday.
I teach throughout the Lower Mainland, I have had the delight of being on Faculty with the Pacific Rim College offering Therapeutics for Doula, developed and implemented the first Yoga Teacher Training at Simon Fraser University, and currently I am the Director and Founder of Live Well Yoga Teacher Training. I love delving into the energy of group classes, and the sensitivity of private therapeutics, that's definitely my thing.
In recovery from MVA's I have had the honor to work with some of Vancouver's elite Instructors of ART & Chiropractic, Physiotherapy, Pilates, Meditation, and Chi Kung. Much of my own rehabilitation has offered me deeper awareness in support of my students. As I witness the daily struggle with Mental Health & Wellness of today's society, coupled with my own personal experiences with Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Bipolar, and PTSD I have made it my work to support the community at The HOpe Centre for Mental Health & Psychiatric School.
It's my endeavor to bring yoga to our youth within the high schools, and my passion to mentor newer Teachers on their path.
My study has its first roots in India with my beloved Teacher of Iyengar who's rich teachings serve me to this day. My Yoga and meditation are based in the practices of Kashmir Shaivism - a direct transmission of my greatest teacher Dr. Carlos de Leon. I taught in Thailand for a number of years, and in 2005 returned to my birthplace here in Vancouver to teach and be a mom to my two heavenly children.
