THE LENS OF PERCEPTION.
Through a decade-long digital media production career (with a Bachelor of Fine Arts: Film from Ryerson University), I've framed life through many lenses. It was only when I turned the lens upon myself that I realized how powerful perception can be. Over the years, my yoga practices have continued to take me to places that no camera can go - revealing the depths of body-mind-heart, becoming intimate with samskaras (deeply entrenched habit patterns & trauma impressions), and awakening the silent centres of my being. Feeling it all.
TRAINING & EXPERIENCE.
As a student of yoga for over 12 years, my Yoga Alliance registered 500 Hr Yoga Teacher Trainings, and continued diverse explorations, have led me to deeper awakenings. Unfolding my practice into one of service & compassionate curiosity.
