...A few years ago when I moved back from Hawaii and my life took a turn for the worse. I had closed my studio in Toronto and had lost my community and friends in the city...

...I moved to a farming area and had no social structure, no car, source of income. I basically was starting my life all over again. It was scary and disheartening. My journey catapulted me into what I later came to know as "the dark night of the soul and the awakening process". If I somehow made it through the other side alive, I promised myself I would dedicate my time to holding space for others during their journey. The main thing I can say I learnt was the undeniable importance of my daily meditation and yoga practice and that there is medicine in grief. There were days I could barely get out of bed and there was no way I could practice yoga without sobbing on the floor on my mat. I was so so grateful I had spent all those years practicing so I could have some threads to hold onto during this time. Fast forward a few years later (this Jan) I felt compelled to write down some of my thoughts on How my Morning Practice saved my life as a process of my own integration. Today that is shaping into a little book I plan to share with you all soon! Then a few months later while pivoting my yoga studio online in March it was clear to me that waking up and teaching was important for my own health as well as others as this is what I live to do. During the past few years and months I kept doing my vision boards and journalling and meditating and asking what am I supposed to do next? This is when I knew it was time to step up and push through my own fears of being seen and vulnerable and follow my bigger dreams. I always wanted to lead a 12 month program that included all my passions and voila! The 12 month mentorship was born and with it the intention to create a virtual space for us to come together and connect and play and inspire one another while supporting one another to follow our own inner guidance and intuition during the global dark night of the soul.
On Oct 1st I am launching my online studio and 2020 Mentorship Program, a place for you to let your hair down and come on a deeper soul journey this year than you ever have. A year of no excuses, a year to live full out your best health and come back to loving yourself and seeing what happens. Imagine all the good things that could come out of committing a year to yourself? You might come out of the cocoon a version of yourself you don't recognize! A chance to write your next chapter with awareness while enhancing you life! I invite you to take the Journey with us and see what happens when you deepen your weekly practice and play more!
This mentorship is possible through the encouragement and support of several of my students and friends as well as a very special young lady named Lauren who has been intrumental in working diligently on the back end with me over the past few months to make an online platform and community possible. A special Thank you to you all!
