I am a Yoga Teacher, Birth Doula, Spiritual Coach and Childbirth Educator. I live and work on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

I am passionate about assisting individuals and families, especially new mothers and pregnant women, to be proactive in their health care through education and holistic tools such as yoga and meditation practice, and more.

I’d like to help you to create a powerful and supported yoga practice and/or birth experience resulting in a more conscious self-relationship and a healthy family.
