I’ll never forget my first yoga class at Moksha. It was an evening class at Moksha Yoga Winnipeg in the dead of a -40 degree winter and I was 19 years old. The class was warm, lit by candles, and full of students. The teacher calmly led us through a series of poses and during the las pose, savasana, lying on my mat looking up at the dim lights, I felt like I was camping on the beach.
Yoga really saved me from a youth of chronic pain and joint problems and helped me heal from seasonal depression. Moksha started as a healthy exercise and stress reliever. Now it has become my community, my family, and the safe space I know I can go to to be greeted with smiles and acceptance.
I started practicing and playing live music classes for the Moksha communities in Winnipeg and am now a regular life musician for some of the studios in Vancouver. I have studied and taken a 200 hour teacher training in India, a Yin teacher training in Vancouver with Bernie Clark, and most recently the Moksha/Modo Level 1 teacher training in Nicaragua.
