We specialize in yoga for kids and families and are based in Riverside, a neighbourhood in Toronto's downtown eastside.
In 2013, after working for 5 years in the financial services industry, I was stressed, tired, and uninspired.
By then, my glorious husband and I’d been trying to start a family for 2 years. I decided to take a step of faith and reconstruct my life. I quit my job and stripped away all that didn't matter to embark upon a life of truth, love, and all-consuming faith. My goal was to live out a life of authenticity, where joy and work were one and the same. As a first step, I decided to participate in a 200 hour yoga teacher training which changed my life for the better, forever.
On the last weekend of my training, we learned I was pregnant! Joy. I went on to receive training in prenatal yoga, and soon began to see how living out my yoga practice was integral to helping me be the best mother possible, and to raising a family alongside my husband in great love. I love teaching yoga as it is an opportunity to share my passion of truth and life. In early 2017, my husband and I welcomed our second son into this world. My two boys inspired me to start Appleseed Yoga, a kids and family yoga business in Riverside district, downtown Toronto.
The name Appleseed Yoga came to me while on a walk with my family. Life and truth are born in our hearts through a small seed and if cultivated, grow into great apple trees, strong and bearing good fruit. This is what kids and family yoga is all about.
