About my practice

Shaktiflow is feminine power, tenderness and beauty expressed through dance and yoga.

As a Yoga Therapist, I have been trained to view every individual as unique and multidimensional. All of us have a physical body, mind, emotions, history and joyful possibilities. Any condition will affect all of these aspects to different degrees, so all need to be treated with the right “medicine”. Do you know that what you believe about your condition, how you breathe and how you take care of yourself contribute to your total health and well-being?

And each of us need to ask ourselves this: “What brings me joy?” Make time every day to connect with the people, places or things that bring you joy. It can even be through a few moments of happy memory. Never underestimate the vitality that accompanies doses of joy! Each part of ourselves needs to be nourished in order to thrive.

I have been practising Yoga for over 40 years, and am grateful for the opportunities to have studied asana, pranayama, philosophy, meditation and therapeutics from many wonderful and generous teachers who lit a spark in me. As well as sharing these subjects with students from divers backgrounds and in teacher training programs, I have a private Yoga Therapy practice at my own studio (in Kensington Market) and public classes around town – see the “Yoga” tab for details.

My formal Yoga Therapy training is from the Rocky Mountain School of Yoga and Ayurveda in Boulder Colorado. I learned Yogic Philosophy and Pranayama at the feet of Baba Hari Dass. I also practice Therapeutic and Healing Touch.
