I came to Yoga quite late in life, in the hope to find tools to cope with injuries. My first teacher training was an effort to understand the mechanics of women's aging bodies. Twenty years later, I am healthy, my body is strong and supple, my outlook on life brightens up significantly and I have vibrant vitality. As Yoga and meditation teacher, I have completed more than 2,500 Yoga teacher training and continuing education hours in Pre & Post-Natal Yoga, Restorative and Yin Yoga, Addiction Recovery and Cancer Prevention, and Traditional Yoga Studies: History, Philosophy and Literature.
My Yoga teacher's training certifications are as follows:
Born and raised in Bali, where Yoga is devotional lifestyle, I am Bhakti-Yoga practitioner under the divine guidance of my beloved gurudeva, His Holiness Srila Bhaktidvedanta Narayan Goswami Maharaja. His request was to (re)awaken the love of God in all hearts. I weave the physical aspect of Yoga and Yoga Philosophy with daily spiritual practice, making this ancient wisdom applicable for today's lifestyle. My classes are holistic andstudent-centred, uplifting and poetic, suitable for beginners and seasoned practitioner who are ready to deepen their practice with self-enquiry.
Other than being a teacher, I am also certified as a lifestyle coach and holistic health practitioner, doula and childbirth educator, and a Reiki Master. I am passionate about empowering others to make healthy lifestyle choices and inspiring them to find their own gateways to wholeness.
Over the years, I have been facilitating workshops and Yoga Alliance 200-hour Yoga teachers' training programs (Hatha-Vinyasa, and Kundalini), as well as leading retreats in Canada and internationally. I am excited about and available for new opportunities to teach at Yoga teacher's training programs world wide.
Soul Sanctuary was born in March 2003, after completing a certificate program in Holistic Health at a community college in Canada 2001 and becoming a Reiki Master in 2002. Its humble beginning started with my desire to learn "coping tools" to help my teen-aged son to deal with adolescence and living in a new country. Beginning with a course in Emotional Healing led me to studies in Herbology, Holistric Nutrition, energy healing (Reiki and Therapeutic Touch), dreamwork, body work (Thai and Hot-stone massage, and Reflexolgy), etc. A strong believer in life-long learning, I continue to deepen my understanding of health and well-being. With my continued study in holistic healing modalities, Soul Sanctuary keeps on expanding with me. I am very excited to offer these holistic healing services to everyone who is in need of self renewal and a return to balance.
Soul Sanctuary offers inter-disciplinary Yoga instructions in Hatha and Kundalini, Pre-Natal and Children's Yoga, Restorative and Yin Yoga, along with Lifestyle Coaching, and various holistic wellness services at a few locations: SpiritWind Centre in the heart of Kensington market, a cozy home studio on Palmerston Blvd, Yoga House in East York, and at the comfort of your own home or office.

The school will not only be providing Yoga Teacher Training certifications but it will also be a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider. We will be offering a few Yoga Lifestyle modules, which counts for your Yoga Alliance Continuing Education units but most especially RYT300/500 certification.

There is only one real language in the entire world and that language is called Love.
There is only one God and S/He is the embodiment of Love.
