In addition, my background includes extensive experience in the areas of Facilitating, Life Coaching, Employment Counselling, Adult/Youth Education, Manual & Curriculum Design/Editing and Human Resources. I have organized, coordinated and presented workshops, seminars and retreats on various topics for people from all walks of life!
Truly, I feel most at home when I am in nature!
I pride myself on being a skilled, seasoned coach/facilitator who not only inspires but connects, supports, encourages, challenges and educates my clients/participants while creating a fun environment! My uplifting personality, contagious energy, knowledge and unique, varied, fun, engaging, innovative and “out of the box” approach is one of a kind! I love working with people who are not just interested but committed to making a difference in their own health and lives. I am a glow getter!
I am a health nut and ongoing learner who continually craves new information. I am inspired to illuminate and grow into the best version of me!
I am dedicated to my yoga practice and working out -developing strength in my body, mind and soul! Here is to a high vibe!
I am drawn to real deep heart focused conversations – tears and goosebumps included! I am intuitive and have a deep connection and addiction to nature and the outdoors. I am passionate about animals rescuing many and taking in more than I always intend to!
I love spending time with my family, friends and my rescue animals. In addition to yoga and working out, I like kayaking, cycling, walking, hiking, skating and cross-country skiing. I enjoy nature and the outdoors! I crave the mountains and I am addicted to sunrises and sunsets! I love travelling with adventure. I spent time with the Hadza Bushmen in Africa!I strive for a Being Brenda verses a Busy Brenda through my yoga and meditation practices!
The words Own Your Light mean to me to be your true, authentic self and shine bright! Not worrying about what others think – being true to you! Raw and real! Perfectly Imperfect!
“When I let go of what I am I become what I might be.”
Who do I hope to be for my yoga community and beyond is vibrant soothing energy, contagious omer, leader and inspiration for others to illuminate and shine their own light! Sometimes people just need a little bit of a nudge, a little more support, a little extra coaching, and the greatest things begin to take place – that is when the magic happens!
“As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”
