My background & experienceAt the age of 16 I was a self taught fitness & wellness connoisseur. After skipping out on 9th grade gym class I opted for a 10th grade fitness class, where I experienced my first taste of resistance training. I rushed to the closest gym for a membership and the rest was history. Although my formal education brought me a degree in Chemical Engineering, my personal obsession with health, fitness & all things wellness brought me down a different path. I currently am the co-owner and operator of Canopy Wellness, a local movement studio and Bowen Therapy clinic, where we use knowledge in pain, trauma and movement to helps others effectively overcome chronic pain. Over 2 years ago, I left a 9-5 engineering job to build a life fully aligned with purpose, passion and service. 2017 - Part Time Fitness Instructor at 'On Edge Fitness' teaching bootcamp & weekend warrior classes 2017 - Started with Bowen College 2018 - Part Time Personal Trainer & Nutrition Consultant, working with clients 1-on-1 2019 - Full Time Coach & Personal Trainer at 'We Are Fitness' teaching functional fitness style group classes 2019 - Completed Reiki Level 1&2 with a focus on meditation 2020 - Opened Canopy Wellness with my business partner Mackenzie 2020 - Became a Certified Bowen Health Therapist 2021 - Online Movement & Stillness Educator helping others overcome chronic pain
My classes and teaching styleHere is my number one commitment to you in every class & private session: I am here to help you feel empowered to move your body, heal your mind & feel the love! I teach classes based on the way our bodies meant to move, mindfully, joyfully & pain free. Each class pulls inspiration from multi-disciplines to cultivate a movement experience that is unique every time. Some movement topics that may appear in classes are: - Increasing range of motion - Building strength, balance & control - Cultivating core awareness - Learning functional approach to living, moving & aging gracefully - Grounding through stillness - Locomotion - Meditation & mindfulness - Turning your brain working through new & novel ways to move your body I love teaching the actual acts of movement & stillness but I also love investigating the why for each and every one of my students. This investigation opens up room for understanding and true embodiment. It also allows space for each student feel safe, heard & cared for on their own healing journey.
