Inclusive & Inspiring

It's amazing being able to combine over 30 years of fitness experience, my passion for practicing and teaching yoga into one fulfilling life journey. I've had the opportunity to learn from many incredible individuals who through their commitment to passing knowledge forward, inspired me to do the same.  In 2013 everything aligned and I opened Grove Yoga School and feel honoured to train many aspiring yoga teachers, and offer students a great yoga practice experience.
