200hr YTT Certified Yoga Teacher
LAO Level 3 in Personal Training
My relationship with yoga started back in 2013 when I first discovered it through qualifying as a Les Mills Body Balance instructor.
With my background in dance my initial attraction to yoga drew from the beauty and fluidity of the movements and poses.

Introducing UM YOGA
Changing How We Interact With Life
Many of us struggle with negative thinking, behaviours, or emotions that we can’t seem to stop repeating. It is a result of the addictive culture that we live in. Our go-to solutions for coping with feelings of disconnection, loneliness, unworthiness and hopelessness have become incessant scrolling, overspending, issue avoidance, and using anything we can to "fix" the way we feel.
We live in a world where our values allow us to gradually kill the planet, kill the animals, use too much plastic, etc. All for the sake of profit. In 2020 we have come to a crossroad highlighting this to us more than ever before. We now need to build a new culture for ourselves and we can only do this by collectively acknowledging the culture we’ve been in and making a shift in the way we treat all being, all planet, all animals.
At UM YOGA my mission is to help you to change the way you interact with life. So that you can live a full, authentic, balanced life. While we cannot single handedly change the world, I believe in the ripple effect. My desire is to be the advocate of the shift that needs to happen in the world. The tools I use for this are coming from the ancient yoga practices, philosophies and principles...
