A little about me...

I have been involved in the fitness/yoga world since 1996, and am a continual education provider for Yoga Alliance, and provincial registering companies for the fitness industry in British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. I am a highly accomplished Presenter, Entrepreneur, Author, Life Coach, Fitness Instructor, and Personal Trainer.

During my first years in the fitness industry and being a student of Yoga, I was still working in the Administration and Human Resources positions in the corporate world.  After 25 years of hard work and no longer reaping the benefits, work was not fun anymore.  I had always told my employees that the day they walked through the door and didn't want to be there, it was time for them to leave.  It happened to me one day, and so I retired.

Since that day, I have followed my love and passion for helping others by developing and teaching fitness, Pilates, and Yoga programs. I am a former Pilates/Yoga studio owner and was the fitness director for a National fitness company for 5 years.  In 2016, I took my coaching and teaching further and became a certified Life Coach through the Certified Coaches Federation of Canada. I continue to educate myself and then share my learnings with others.

As a student of the Mind, Body & Spirit theory, and an internationally recognized Yoga Instructor, I love guiding and instructing others to live their best life. I was a National Master Bender Ball Trainer teaching the Bender Ball Method, Tabata GX, and Barre Above prior to Covid, and I have also authored many programs including the successful Bender Ball Chair Yoga course.


I love teaching a variety of classes and I work one-to-one with clients, helping them create success in their lives through fitness, health and wellness programs.  When I wasn't teaching online, you would find me traveling throughout the provinces of BC and Alberta mentoring many instructors and teaching CEC approved workshops.

I continue to host very successful annual Yoga retreats internationally, coaching my guests to bring balance into their lives through two of my signature coaching programs; the Art of B.A.L.A.N.C.E. and The L.A.W. of Balance.   In 2015, I created my signature programs, Antaraka Yoga – an amazing Pilates-infused-Yoga class and bodyFIT Beyond The Scale - a 6-week transformational program. I teach both of these programs to dedicated instructors so they too can inspire others across the globe. I have certified 100s of instructors and continue to offer more in-depth programs to them annually.

As a published author, I was honored to be a part of a best seller book, "Shine 2" in 2017 and I have personally published my successful books "21 Ways To Bring Balance Into Your Life", "Balance Yoga for Parkinson's Disease and, other Movement Disorders", and "bodyFIT Beyond The Scale", and #1 best seller on Amazon in June 2023.

Daily, I live my truth by balancing my dedication to my career and clients, and my devotion to my family, my 3 beautiful daughters, and 8 wonderful grandchildren.
