Welcome to Yoga Uttara!
In Sanskrit, Uttara translates to mean “north” or “up.” Since my home is in Yellowknife in Canada’s Northwest Territories, I felt that describing my yoga practice as “way up there” is significant.

This website is a reflection of how yoga fits into my life. I have been practicing yoga since 2003 and teaching since 2010. The practice of yoga provides me with mental fortitude, physical strength and steadiness of mind.

Practicing yoga provides me with the strength to overcome physical and emotional challenges. Teaching yoga provides me an outlet to share my passion for yoga. Writing about yoga is a way to capture the journey. Along with blog posts about yoga, this site contains sections about athletic pursuits and travel.

Finally, this website features articles and ideas I have written that are relevant to yogis and athletes in the North and around the world. Please read, comment, learn, critique and above all, step on to your mat every day.

Looking forward to practicing yoga with you!
