How I founded a Yoga Health Centre!
I hold a BCom., MSc., researching Healthy Aging, and a Certificate in Yoga (YT200) with specialized training from Duke Integrative Medicine in yoga for seniors and ailments such as cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis, and chronic pain.
My love for healthy living inspires me to research healthy aging topics especially in areas where yoga is utilized to help our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. With many years of practicing yoga and pilates… I found a healthy balance between physical activity, environmental integrity, and mental well-being.
On a quest for deeper personal development, I discovered Yoga is the consistent therapy I used for treatment, fitness, and healing. A sequence of events led me to an inspiring yoga teacher (Jason Lu, Yoga Tree Studios), who provided the tools and knowledge to advance my practice, uncover my passion and love for life-long learning.
I found my calling through integrating teaching and healthy aging!

SMALL GROUP CLASS
Yoga is a joyful and safe practice that can be a complementary or integrative therapy for healthy aging. Give yourself the ability to sustain your highest quality of living at any age or stage of life.
There are many health benefits from practicing yoga…
relieve anxiety and depression;
increase strength, and;
reduce social isolation.
I have spoken at a variety of events and conferences. My dream for everyone to live a healthy lifestyle at any age allows me to passionately speak and educate the community
of the health benefits along with ways to minimize the risks of practicing yoga depending on the ailment and/or age.
I love to educate whether it is in group setting of one, fifty, or thousands!
Yoga is often minimized to physical fitness benefits only but there are profound benefits that even the healthcare community is adopting as a form of treatment and therapy for patient care and healing.
Please contact me if you would like to book me to speak at your next event!
“Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don’t transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.”
