Nature-inspired yoga & art classes for participants of all ages & abilities.

I am a certified yoga teacher and practicing artist with over 19 years of experience leading creative programming in community spaces.

I have delivered in-person and virtual art, yoga, story time, science, and movement programs for thousands of participants of all ages and abilities. Classes are available by request for schools, libraries, and other community groups across the Niagara Region.

Explore class options below, then please get in touch and we’ll work together to plan the perfect class to meet your needs!

Accessible Yoga

Let’s laugh and exercise together in a yoga class designed for all ages and abilities. Each class will include yoga poses that may be practiced in a chair or on your yoga mat, plus breathing exercises and meditation. A variety of modifications will be shared and no previous yoga experience is required. Practicing yoga is a great way to build strength, stretch your muscles, and manage stress. Participants will receive a handout featuring the warmup stretches, breathing breaks, yoga poses and guided relaxation from each class to support their home yoga practice.

Classes can be customized for adults and/or children of all ages & abilities.
