Your Fitness Training Teacher

Movement has always been a part of my life. I remember skating before I could walk, biking everywhere as a kid and running as far and as fast as I could. I was never one to sit still. My youthful movement adventures took me from hockey to dance to boxing and more. Movement was fun. Movement was carefree. Movement was easy. Until it wasn't… Until it became hard. It became painful. At the age of 17 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I thought I would never find the joy in movement again. It was hard to stay positive, as chronic pain and illness continued to follow me throughout the years, I would constantly think to myself “Why me?”. It took a debilitating back injury at the age of 26 to finally understand “Why me?”. Thanks to adversity I am who I am today. Thanks to adversity I grew resilience, found empathy and ignited my passion. My passion for helping others affected by chronic pain and illness. I dedicate myself today as a Movement Educator and Bowen Therapist to fuel this passion and help others feel empowered through movement, healing & love.

My background & experience

At 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.

My classes and teaching style

Here 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.
