A little more about me

Loving life with mindfulness

 As a Wellness Specialist, I’m focused on helping people feel better from the inside out.  I have the, "What's good for the goose..." approach.

If it's not working for me, I won't be teaching it to you. So, yes, I love this practice in my daily life. It's been the thing to shift my life from 'meh' to 'Ahh!' 

I’m a teacher, trainer, yogi, entrepreneur and a learning fiend committed to helping people feel better, in body and in mind. 

 As a Canadian with a modern family of 7, I feel a passion for helping people love their life. I know it can be done, and I can’t not share what I know. 

Let's love life, and love the person in the mirror.

a little bit of background

 I seem to have a unique connection with my clients that stems from my own personal journey toward wellness. I’ve been a fitness expert and wellness coach for over 20 years. For several years, I was simultaneously an intermediate & senior level teacher. 

Balance has been my lifeline.

Body, Mind & Spirit considered, it's all connected. 

Since 2008, being a full time personal trainer, fitness instructor, and Yoga instructor has been the earth shaking shift in my life that has brought me to a place where I can truly say, I really do love life!   

I  have worked as a physical therapy aid alongside physical therapists and chiropractors. To better help my clients with a healthy lifestyle, I also hold a Nutrition and Weight Loss Specialist certification. 


As my experience and understanding has grown, I have developed a MYndful Movement program that addresses our Whole Health like nothing I have ever done. 

Through our MYndful Movement practice, we Set Intentions to enhance our life experience. 

We Cause the Effect to live a rich and gratifying life.
This doesn't mean that we don't experience challenges and disappointments, but when we do...and oh ya we will, we can move through life with Compassion to Self, an Awareness to our Intentions and Love right through the hard times.

Mindfully, we can feel...

improved energy, 

better range of motion, 

a stronger core and 

assist you in improving your quality of life from eating, to sleeping, to having more fun with family and friends

I made the shift in my professional life to take a holistic approach to health and wellness that involves all aspects of living well, including yoga/fitness, nutrition, and behavioral changes, weight loss, and a mindfulness practice.

By sharing a new and improved philosophy that broadens our goals of good health to encompass mindfulness as an equally important part of our health, we'll feel empowered, defining and reaching our personal goals, both physically and mentally.

Extra cool stuff to share...

Teaching adults through fitness, yoga and meditation practice is extremely gratifying. Teaching MYndful Movement/Games to teens and school aged children has brought me back to school. 

In these times of high rates of anxiety and depression among our kids, it's an honour to bring a mindful practice to the classroom, allowing children to relax.

There are now thousands of studies showing the benefits of these mindful games and techniques for stress management and self acceptance. Parents and teachers alike are now more open than ever, to these practical tools that show benefits in the child's mood, energy and outlook. 

The really neat thing about a mindfulness practice is how the children feel better right away.
