founder Yoga In My School and Kids Yoga Academy
I’m a teacher, yoga instructor, lover of good food, dog owner, author, runner, mother of 4, and sweetie to 1.
I live in St Albert, Alberta, Canada which is lovely during the summer and cold as h*** in winter. If you don’t believe me come visit in January. I grew up in beautiful Castlegar, BC with my brother and 3 sisters where we ran amok in the neighbourhood as kids and either rented movies, attended school sporting events, or hung out with friends as teens. I was also a Rotary Exchange student and spent a unforgetable year living in Brasília, Brazil.
I met my husband while studying at the Faculté St Jean, French Faculty of the UofA, in Edmonton. It was love over verb conjugations and Midnight Oil concerts. We married, studied, lived in Taiwan, Japan, and South Africa, and travelled the world before, much to my mother’s relief, finally settling down to suburban life.
I started doing yoga when expecting my oldest and living in Cape Town. From the first I loved it! To this day I come home from class with more vitality and enthusiasm than when I started. In order to share my enthusiasm for yoga and how it relates to kids I’ve created Yoga In My School.
Each year since 2002 I’ve taught thousands of kids and teens yoga. In addition, I train parents and teachers on how to get in there and do some yoga. Its easy and fun. My work in bringing yoga and mindfulness to schools has been featured in Reader’s Digest and the Wall Street Journal.
