Simone is inspired by how the ancient wisdom of yoga can be applied to our lives in the modern world today. Hatha Yoga has the power to heal our over stimulated nervous system with its multitude of practices, while yoga philosophy leads us to a more sustainable and positive lifestyle, grounded in love for ourselves and all beings.
Simone first found herself on a yoga mat as a university student in her early 20’s. It wasn’t love at first sight, rather Simone was an athlete and student of kinesiology, studying how the body functions and moves in a variety of ways. At 23 Simone went on her first trip to India, where she was taken with the level of reverence and ritual that existed in everyday life. She decided that on her return to Canada she would take on daily yoga practice.
Now, 13 years later Simone has been practice almost every day of her life. She has completed over 1000 hours of her own training and is constantly evolving and deepening her own understanding of these ancient teachings. Simone completed 500 hours of training with the renowned Downward Dog Yoga Centre in Toronto, as well as, 500 hours of training with Eyal Chehanowski in Tel Aviv, Israel. Simone also regularly travels to New York City where she is training with Stacey Brass Russell.
Today Simone is a mother of a 2 year old girl and balances her time between practicing and teaching yoga, studying to be a registered massage therapist and mothering her daughter. Nothing makes Simone feel more alive than listening to her daughter laugh, seeing her students discover something new for the first time and witnessing transformation in action on and off the yoga mat.
Simone blends her knowledge of western science, anatomy and physiology with her experience in yogic philosophy. Simone is passionate about sharing these teachings and empowering others to access their best selves.
I’m inspired by how the ancient wisdom of yoga can be applied to our lives in the modern world today. Asana has the power to heal our over stimulated nervous system while Yoga philosophy leads us to a sustainable and positive lifestyle grounded in love for ourselves and all beings.
