My passion is conscious human engagement.
I like to emphasizes the potential of the individual by enabling them to find unique pathways and connection points between their bodies, minds and spirits. I am blessed to call Vancouver and Nelson B.C. home.
As a senior yoga teacher, I teach Tantra, therapeutic and adaptive yoga advocating for a holistic approach to healing paticularily from spinal cord injury. I speak at events about my experiences as a quadriplegic yogi and entrepreneur. Through facilitating various events on access and inclusion, and serving on Vancouver’s city council Person’s with Disability Advisory Committee I am honoured to be an ‘agent of change’ helping to make our world a better place for all.
I love enjoying beautiful British Columbia, hanging out with my two daughters, and Jolie – my extraordinary helper dog – who is always by my side. I believe if we make a way, we will include everybody even those who don’t think they can–because we can. I like to make a difference in people’s lives, and collectively, that adds up to a more welcoming and inclusive future.
It’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do with what happens to you, that will set you free and on the path to personal empowerment and liberation. Mary-Jo 2004
