“Through the power of movement and touch, you can reclaim a piece of yourself that was lost. I believe that you can move beyond where you currently find yourself. I hold this picture for you while we work together and advocate for your best story.”

About: About



Yoga Therapist * Registered Massage Therapist * Somatic Therapist
Founder of Embodiment Yoga™, Somatic Yoga Therapy™ & the Mandorla Yoga Institute

As the founder and creator of Embodiment Yoga™ and Somatic Yoga Therapy, I draw from my personal experience as a neurodivergent individual with a history of trauma and my over 21 years of facilitating somatic yoga experiences. I have traveled as far as Thailand to find the modalities that made my heart sing and integrate Registered Massage Therapy (RMT 2200hrs), Integrative Somatic Therapy Practice™, Thai Yoga Massage, Nervous System Healing, and Embodiment Yoga™ into my sessions. I hold a special place in my heart for neurodivergent individuals and endeavor to create a brave space for you, where you feel welcome and honoured for your strengths.​ I am passionate about this community that I have created over the years, where we co-create together the reclamation of our bodies and connection with others. By leading with vulnerability and honesty from a place of fierce love, I help people return to a feeling of ease within their bodies. 


Called to the feminine side of yoga, my heart for facilitating ease and finding flow inspired my studies in meditation, philosophy, Adaptive Yoga, Anusara, Vinyasa Flow (Viniyoga inspired), Yoga Therapy, and Thai Massage. After the birth of my daughter in 2016, it became very clear that what it was that I was sharing was Embodiment Yoga™ . . . the pathway home, a practice of reclamation of your body, your voice, your story, and your path. I continue to follow this thread of Embodiment and continue to study Integrative Somatic Therapy Practice™ with my mentor, Ratha Chek. I am honoured as well to be on the faculty of the Integrative Somatic Studies Institute®, where I teach about the intersections between somatic therapy, yoga, bodywork, and trauma healing.


I would like to honour my mentors who have supported me over the years. The knowledge that I have did not appear from within a vacuum. Thank you to Ratha for seeing me in my wholeness and celebrating my wildness. Thank you to Michiji (Michelle Cormack) for supporting me in finding my joy and beginning the process of tapping into my body, Thank you to Karen Heaven for opening the doors of Tantra for me and helping me to discover playfulness and ease, Thank you to Robin Rothenburg for introducing me to Viniyoga and the deeper wisdom of yoga philosophy, Thank you to Lucille Palancher and Remco for sharing your wisdom in the art of Thai Yoga Massage, and thank you to the many other teachers who have inspired this path of embracing my body with kindness.
