After attending a Kundalini Yoga class at Yoga West in Vancouver in 1996, I was hooked. I received my Kundalini Yoga Teacher certificate from KRI in May 1997. I continue to upgrade my training regularly. I teach groups and private classes as well as workshops on Anxiety & Depression, Meditation, Chakras and Decluttering Your Life in various locations in the Fraser Valley from Chilliwack to Maple Ridge.
I have taught children’s yoga at local schools (Christine Morrison Elementary, et al), and camps. As well, I offer a seminar to K-12 teachers on how to incorporate yoga into their DPA and physical education classes. I've lead retreats and been part of the yoga community for more than 20 years. I continue to grow my practice and teaching through continuing education and personal study.
In 1990, I started training in Aikido (traditional Japanese martial art). I am the chief instructor at our dojo, Aikido Takayama, in Mission, BC. We are associated with TK Chiba's organization, Birankai and run both youth and adult classes. I am a certified aikido instructor, registered in Japan’s Hombu dojo and hold a 4th degree black belt. I travel frequently to the US to train and learn from my teachers.
