Many years ago, with two small children at home, I first tried yoga by following Gerda Krebs on TV. It wasn’t until 2003 that I began taking classes led by Lillian Khattab in Edmonton. While looking for summer classes in 2004, I found Yoga for Today (YFT), and have been practicing yoga there ever since.
I have noticed increased happiness, health and overall wellbeing with a regular yoga practice and strive to help others gain those feelings. Yoga brings so much joy to my body, mind and soul and I want to share that experience with everyone. With the encouragement of family and friends, I completed an apprenticeship with Gerda at YFT in 2009 and Hatha Yoga Teacher Training with Glenda Sartore and Joan Randolph at YFT in January 2011. Shortly after that, while being measured for a physical, I found out I had grown over an inch taller (I asked to be measured two more times, just to be sure!) With heartfelt gratitude to Joan for helping me find the curve in my lumbar spine and Gerda for all the posture-improving exercises!
I have attended many more workshops and classes, most recently completing a Prenatal Teacher Training with Colette Crawford (September 2012).
I feel extremely blessed for all I have learned and continue to learn from my many teachers and students. I am truly grateful to be able to keep sharing my love of yoga with others, and to continue following my passion as a lifelong student and teacher of yoga.
