Since childhood, I’ve been drawing and doodling as a way to process the world and as a form of therapy. I decided to take the leap of courage and put some of my illustrations out into the world! May I introduce Little Nugget Print Co, the home of my illustrations that combine my love of nature with the lessons I’ve learned from the years thus far of practising and teaching yoga.
Everything is illustrated by me and hopefully they feature some nuggets of wisdom that you will find helpful too!
Enjoy, and thank you!

I am honoured to be asked to teach at the the Circle of Knowledge and Practices Conference (October 5-6th, 2017, Winnipeg) hosted by the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre. As a gathering for discussing approaches to Indigenous education, honouring First Nation culture, and ensuring student success, a piece of that puzzle is drawing attention to the self-care of educators and leaders. Learning to take care of ourselves is the first step to learning how to take care of others, and yoga or any other awareness practice can play a pivotal role in cultivating physical, mental and spiritual health. I will be leading two breathing (pranayama) workshops on the morning of October 6th. As a simple, accessible form of yoga, breathing practices can be a way to work with anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression. Basic breathing practices are easy to learn and to incorporate into day-to-day routine.
