As we move head first into a new year I think that despite everything we are all still holding on to the feeling of hope. Hope for health, progress, stability and community.
I dream of new possibility and old normalcy. I miss people and gatherings, laughing, dancing and singing, even without any talent for the last 2!. I miss trust and warmth of neighbours and community. I fear the mental health impact of all of this on myself, family/friends and clients at times that are already strained for so many, when there is so much more happening in their lives than just Covid 19. I miss all other topics of conversations, making life choices based on anything other than a pandemic. I have been so fortunate to not be directly affected by Covid 19. I have been so fortunate to not be alone during Covid 19. I have been a part of a live community. I am fortunate. I am grateful.
We have had the opportunity to learn much about ourselves and those around us. To step back, see who fills us and who drains us, where we fell strong and where we feel defeated. What empowers us and motivates us to move forward despite a ton of challenge, and what we are ready to leave behind. It is like wiping the dirt off of your glasses. Seeing things a little more clearly. And then we have the time and space to make changes that improve our life experience...relationships, jobs, dreams.
To those in the small business community who have truly lost, my heart breaks for you. We as entrepreneurs live, work and breathe our passions. We do this work so that we love more of our life and love more of ourselves and love more of our family/community. It is that love that will bring you back, clawing and grasping until you find something similar or maybe something new that sparks you. You will fall in love again.
With the delay of that "fresh 2021 start" that even the most grounded small business owner may have allowed to creep into our dreams, we will hang on, we will learn, plan, explore and tune up. We will adapts and dream and roll with the punches.
Keep on keeping on. Hope to see you all at the end of January for our "fresh start". Until then, PEACE.
During this uncertain time I continue to offer online Fitness, Yoga and CORE+Floor programming by way of a virtual class membership. The feedback of those using the online classes has been wonderful and I am so thankful to have this medium to continue to support the community. If you would like more information on the online ever-growing video databases please contact me!
Though the online classes have helped many to continue their yoga and fitness journey, the loss of human to human contact and the support of our amazing movement community has been deeply missed!
Though keeping fit at home may be challenging please know I am here to support you in that journey while also working to get those who are ready, back together in studio! Despite the hardship of being away from the studio all of this time, I am so thankful for our health, the health of friends, family and the community.
We have tried our best to be patient as we learn more about COVID 19. As restrictions loosen I am exploring what is most responsible with respect to running this business; where and when it might be safe to expand into community programming, limitations of numbers of clients, concern for babies and children in the Hot Mama and CORE+Floor programs, increased sanitizing and cleaning procedures, and respecting the toll Covid 19 has taken on mental and physical health in terms of stress.
It has been tough, far from business as usual but we continue to do our best to keep our families and our communities safe. We are hanging in and are not willing to give up! We need our community.
Plans are coming together to create small, conscious and cautious Fitness, Yoga and CORE+Floor pod classes for the fall! Safety and health are number one! As programming is confirmed I will be booking clients into a socially distanced, physically responsible, sanitized space.
I am more than excited to welcome those interested back into the studio! I've missed you dearly and hope to see you soon!

Working in the fitness industry has taught me many things, most importantly that each path is individual, even in a group setting. Focused classes, personalized programs, prioritizing and setting realistic goals lead to success! There is no one right way to move, and once we find your way, positive changes begin to happen and you may even enjoy it!
With 9 years of professional experience, continued research and education, and a lifetime of personal sport and fitness experience, I am confident that together we will be able to reach realistic fitness goals safely and efficiently. I am pleased to collaborate with a strong network of respected healthcare professionals who are available to help with our process for anything beyond my scope. I truly believe that a holistic approach to health makes it a life enhancement and not a chore.
Keeping you on track and motivated is my primary goal. As a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, 200Hr Yoga Teacher, Core Confidence Specialist, Pre&Post Natal Fitness Specialist, Mom of 2, Run Clinic leader, former Physiotherapy Assistant....you get it...I have the passion, energy and focus to help you find what you are looking for in fitness.
