YOGA INSTRUCTOR

I am currently teaching in Thunder Bay, Ontario. You can find me at Moksha Yoga Thunder Bay! Click the link for our weekly class schedule!  https://thunder-bay.mokshayoga.ca/classes/#schedule2

 

I am trained and certified as a 500 hour Moksha Yoga instructor and 100 hour Moksha Vinyasa Flow teacher- teaching for 7 and learning for life!! 

 

Moksha is an environmentally conscious hot yoga series that focuses on stretching and strengthening the body. Moksha is traditionally practiced in a hot room which helps to detoxify the body and calm the mind. While I was taught to teach the Moksha Yoga series, I still bring my own unique knowledge and experience to every class.
