A day retreat filled with yoga, nature, delicious food and beautifully concluded with a sound bath. We greet the morning with a mindfulness practice to become grounded and then the foundations of the physical practice. We tune into our body with alignment, breath and connection using the art of mindfulness. We stop for a tasty and nutritional lunch at the Couch House Kitchen and then, we have time for a meditation walk through the surrounding of this beautiful park and with each element we
The afternoon session is about relaxing our body with a restorative yoga practice of deep relaxation techniques that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga before moving on to the sound bath to bring the body back to its natural state of balance and harmony. Relaxing deeper for the the sounds to soothe your nervous system, quiet your mind, alleviate deeply held tension.
Through the sound bath you may experience a loss of body awareness and become so relaxed that you may even have dreams or feeling of elated happiness.

I love music, sunshine, an under dog and kindness. My stepdad was an alcoholic who had many demons, and I watched how it tore his life apart. I know times were way different then and a colourful start to life meant I was intuitive from an early age.
As I went through my adolescent and young adult years I had my fair share of working through self doubt, anger and resentment and it was much later in life that I found yoga. It was the actual teaching that helped me soften, forgive, let go. I am by no means perfect but yoga and mindfulness and the continuant work has helped me create a shift. I'm no longer angry or hung up about the past. I aim to be more present each day and grateful for the life I have. Sometimes I become undone but keep practicing and no longer beat myself up. My practice helps me create a calmer, stronger and more grateful self. Its brought me back from some dark thoughts.
We all have our own stories and I am honoured to be teaching real people and to be sharing my knowledge and passion with you. I am 500 RYT teacher that teaches with a love for movement and freedom in the body so gratitude, compassion and all the good stuff can be cultivated. The say yoga mirrors our personal journey on this planet and I personally want to stay curious, have fun and never stop growing.
