As a teenager I asked for guidance; to be shown a more graceful way to engage in relationship and living.  I promised to listen to and follow my inner guidance.

The distilling of inner experience has opened my vision enabling me to see that if I am not making a conscious choice, then I will most definitely be making an unconscious choice; one that is tied to my conditioning and weaknesses. Therefore, I choose to awaken and to Live In Awareness.

We have a responsibility to ourselves to seek to awaken in the moment that is Now.

Paramahansa Yogananda


I view myself as a quietly passionate Yoga & Meditation teacher, inspired and transformed by over 25 years of Yoga Sadhana. I credit my ability to teach the deeper meaning of Yoga to my ongoing self-inquiry and experiential learning.

My inner quest was given momentum by an emotional crisis which led me from a career in Architecture into a direct Self-search.  In hindsight, my study of Practical Philosophy at the School of Economic Science, (London) gave me tools to creatively move through this experience. These tools were further enhanced through Meditation and Healing Courses that I attended at the Berkeley Psychic Institute.  So much was absorbed during the intense time of rebirthing that ensued. Then came a period of assimilating and becoming grounded in the real growth that transpired.  And, I credit the vibrational energy of nature’s embrace in Trinidad & Tobago for bringing forward in me, a quality of maturing Presence.  I further credit the example of innate goodness of my parents and a silent teacher.

My initial 13 year Yoga practice was self-taught.  This was followed by a Yoga Teacher training at Esther Myers Yoga Studio, Toronto which offered a foundation in technique.  Early on in my training I was prompted by an understanding that, as much as a dancer is reliant on technique, the transmission is ‘dry’ if they ‘have no feel for the music’.   With this awareness I have endeavoured to draw on Hatha and Yin styles so as to warmly infuse my craft with an harmonious blend of energy, which is both grounded and ethereal. My practice and teaching have been primarily influenced and inspired by Richard Miller, Angela Farmer and Sarah Powers together with my own inner guidance.  From the boon of direct experience I seek to share a calm and relaxed atmosphere to encourage the restoring of balance to body, mind and heart.  My approach towards Yoga as towards life is a Mindful one.


Given that the everyday is often met with rushed, stressed and mechanical thoughts and movements, I understand that it takes time and focused awareness to breathe and move consciously both on and off the mat.  When you relax and feel rather than unconsciously force, you develop a body/mind strength that informs your living experiences.  Grace and delight spontaneously arise and naturally enhance your mental/emotional clarity and well-being.

I live and teach Yoga & Meditation in Toronto.  I also lead Workshops and Retreats in Toronto, Nanaimo and the Caribbean. Since 2004 I have led an annual, week long Retreat in Tobago and have been a guest teacher at Rancho La Puerta Fitness & Spa Resort, Mexico since 2007. 

Additionally, I offer Energy Balancing and have created a ‘Mindful Yoga’ DVD and a Guided Relaxation CD, ‘Travelling Inward’.
