About me

I have been a devoted yoga practitioner since my early twenties and I have taught internationally for over 19 years. After completing my Teacher Training in 2005 at The Downward Dog Yoga Centre in Toronto with Ron Reid and Diane Bruni, I traded the infamous Canadian winters for warmer shores of India. I spent 12 years practicing, learning and teaching in India, the motherland and birth place of yoga.  This was a time for growth, constant learning and transformation – my love of yoga, teaching and practicing, evolved.

I lead Vinyasa flow classes that are dynamic, fluid, energizing and self-motivating. Filled with technique, alignment and a systematic approach to building strength and balance, my classes offer an array of intelligent sequences covering a wide variety of themes. I have a keen eye for reading bodies and helping people work through limitations to build a stronger more powerful, transformative practice.

I offer a Restorative Yoga Training that is valuable to both yoga teachers as well as regular practitioners. I believe it is one of the most powerful practices for the nervous system to help manage modern day stress and anxiety. This training is open to everyone. More information on that program here.

I have been studying Sound Meditation since 2017 and offer these sessions for deeper rejuvenation. Using Tibetan Bowls as instruments for sound vibration, one can reach a state of stillness and calm, in which sound nourishes the nervous system allowing the entire body to relax at a deeply profound level. This is more of the most accessible forms of meditation. Anyone can do this practice and achieve a deep state.


My in-depth study and practice of yoga has led me to work intensely with Kundalini Energy as a tool for transformation on the path of ultimate freedom to the true Self.

This desire for freedom has been strong from a young age and it led me along an unusual and colourful life path filled with experience, adventure and personal growth. I am also a life coach. I am curious and I love to travel. I lived in India for 12 years before I moved to the UAE, where I currently reside in Dubai. Even though I am driven by this desire to wander and explore the entire world as well as the inner workings of the mind, people still describe me as being grounded and stable.

I believe in the work that I do. Everything that I offer has been transformational on my own path. It acts as a navigational tool on the path to personal peace and freedom. Please reach out if you feel called to explore the possibilities of this path of ultimate freedom.

I work with the Kundalini Energy in 2 different ways. They are very similar. Click the links below for more information.

Kundalini Bodywork – Best for transforming trauma and releasing blockages. Ideal for 1:1 sessions.

Kundalini Energy Activation – Best for raising your vibration and releasing blockages. Powerful in both 1:1 and group sessions.
