Cultivating Calm: 5-Day Yoga & Mindfulness Retreat
20 - 24 May, 2019
Hoi An, Vietnam
I'm a nomadic yoga + mindfulness teacher (E-RYT), trainer & Shamballa Reiki practitioner originally from Toronto, Canada. Over the last two years, I've travelled around Australia and Southeast Asia to explore different ways of being, and fell in love with the beautiful, coastal beach town of Hoi An in Central Vietnam; where I currently call home.
My practice revolves around the simple question: "how can we live life with more love, peace, and joy?"
My yoga practice started as a physical practice on the mat that soon evolved into a lifestyle off the mat. And I love sharing the magic of yoga!
In yoga we combine asanas (poses) with our breath to create a beautiful moving meditation. Coupled with mindfulness cues, my classes are a space to become aware, to play, to learn, to grow, and to embrace your body, your mind and your spirit.
My practice and teachings involve different yoga styles including Hatha, Gentle, Beginners, Vinyasa and Restorative.
"Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment." ~Thich Nhat Hanh
It is more than sitting still on a cushion; mindfulness is a continuous practice that we can bring into our daily activities and lives to live more fully in each moment. Mindfulness can be brought into activities such as walking, eating, tea drinking, hugging and much more.
Reiki is a natural form of energy healing and works on all levels of an individual’s being - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - to promote well-being, peace, harmony and balance. Reiki supports the body's natural ability to heal itself, balances the Chakras (major energy centres) and loosens up stuck or blocked energy, releasing toxins to further promote one's healing.
My practice is Shamballa Reiki - an expansion of the traditional Usui Reiki - where Shamballa is the energy of unconditional love.
