 THE   DIVINE 



I would like to thank everyone for their interest and support of my yoga classes and teachings.

I have, however, reached a point in my life and spiritual practice where I need some space from the class and studio setting. To that end, I have officially (semi)retired from yoga teaching. I am not ruling out the possibility of workshops in the future, but I do not think it likely I will return to teaching regular classes.

I wish you clarity and enlightenment as you journey along your path of discovery.




Ashtanga Yoga   Ashtanga Yoga classes are taught according to the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. With opening and closing mantras chanted at every class (some Sanskrit counting). This method of Yoga uses the breath to flow through a sequence of standing, seated and closing postures, with each asana preparing the practitioner for the next. Vinyasas (breath with movement) are used to link one posture to the next, producing internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies the body. Bandhas (energy locks) and drishti (gaze) are also employed to help lighten the body and focus the mind. Eventually one learns to effectively combine the breath, bandhas, drishti and vinyasa (movement through the asanas) to unite Body, Mind, Soul and Spirit.

These classes will give the student a good foundation of the basics of the Ashtanga practice... the breath, bandhas and drishti as well as the vinyasa flow that has made the Ashtanga yoga discipline so popular. Everyone welcome, though be prepared for a more athletic physical discipline.
Some previous yoga experience is recommended but not required.

Vinyasa Yoga Class   Vinyasa Flow yoga flows the same as an Ashtanga class but the students get to experience a variety of other poses not usually practice in the traditional primary series. Breath, Bandhas and Drishti are still emphasized and Vinyasas are practiced throughout the class to flow from one sequence of poses to another. Everyone welcome, though be prepared for a more athletic physical discipline.
Some previous yoga experience is recommended but not required.

Hatha Yoga   Hatha yoga classes are suitable for every level and are appropriate for people new to yoga. Breath and flow are emphasized and used to move from one sequence of poses to another. Class pace is relaxed with variations and modifications of the poses throughout.
No previous yoga experience necessary.

Sadhana   = 'means to realization' or 'spiritual practice'. All my classes are taught as Sadhana with an emphasis on the spiritual nature of the yoga. Yoga is too often divorced from its spiritual background and I hope to encourage students to delve deeper into their practice sharing mantras, mudras, philosophy and throughout all of my classes.


I began my yoga practice in 1999. My first introduction to yoga was Ashtanga Yoga taught by Mike Dennison and Fiona Stang of City Yoga. These Ashtanga Yoga classes were taught according to the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. I immediately fell in love with the style, structure and philosophy of the traditional Ashtanga system. After many years of practicing Ashtanga with a variety of teachers, I was inspired to teach the traditional system of Ashtanga to others. Therefore, I returned to my original teacher, Fiona Stang (one of only eight people in Canada authorized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) and husband Julian Deck to study. I have a strong personal practice and I am very passionate about the Ashtanga Yoga system. I teach my classes as they are being taught in India today. Opening and closing mantras are chanted at every class as well as some Sanskrit counting. I have a great interest in spirituality, both Western and Eastern, and being a very spiritual person, I find that yoga is extremely effective in achieving the body, mind, soul and spirit connection. I truly believe that Yoga is more than just the poses, it is a sacred practice for the whole being.

I teach anywhere from a complete beginner Ashtanga class through to the full Primary Series in Ashtanga.
