  1. Hi! I just found your posts by looking up on yoga in Dominica. Your information is wonderful! I am interested in your classes and yoga teacher training. I am wondering if you think you may be continuing teacher trainings in the future? I live in Canada but am considering coming to Dominica. I would love to put my name on the list for future participants! Whenever you have a good moment to do so I will be happy to hear back. Your teacher training program sounds exactly what I have been looking for. A foundation that develops naturally. Thanks. I was so inspired to find this! Good day to you out there doing this deep work and namaste:)

    • Hi; Thanks for your lovely comments. I was raised in Canada – what part are you in?
      Come and visit – this country is amazing. Contact me when you know what area of Dominica you will be staying in. I do classes all over the island and they frequently change as to location and times so I will be better able to tell you what classes are nearby. The classes are worth $10 US a little less than most places but I have a sliding scale according to the type of dollars you are earning. That way people earning the low wages of DA can still attend. My yoga teacher training programme is at this point an in depth 2 year training. We are in the inaugural year with 7 people who live here – after we give it a trial run we will adapt it to suit a few different educational mediums. Keep in touch. Bless!
