About Me


Always be in the present, and milk life for all it's worth


Finished school (for now), and embarking on my (career?) as a yoga teacher which I'm very excited about!


Always be present. Freedom is complicated but the greatest goal.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting awesome people while travelling. I look forward to being a host in Montreal!


Have met some awesome people across the country and a few from around the world as well.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you yoga! I can explain to you what Lacan means by "object petite a". Also I can teach you how to clap with one hand.
I would like to practice my French more, and learn German.
