With background studies in Theatre and Dance, there has always been a wondering sense of how I may connect and relate with myself and others through playful, creative exploration . I have trusted this curiosity to guide me in how I can best share and serve my community during these challenging times.
My teaching endeavours sprouted in High School as a skating coach for young skaters, later as a yoga instructor, and presently a Movement teacher/ coach. Over the course of time I've come to understand perfectionism and our aversion of failure as two great obstacles to learning, moving, and in the greater picture relating to ourselves and others wholeheartedly.
By embracing the vastness of our personal human experience alongside our interbeingness, we may create the space to embody the generosity of motion-moment to moment.

Tkaronto- Mohawk for 'where there are trees standing in water',
the land where I live, is in the "Dish With One Spoon Territory"
The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee
that bound them to share the territory and protect the land.
Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples,
Europeans and all newcomers,
have been invited into this treaty
in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
