About Me


I like to introduce people to yoga, to the possibility of making things better for themselves. I love to help people who want to be helped!


I have travelled in the past and for the last few years I've settled down in Ottawa where I teach yoga and raise my daughter. I live in the Market, so I get to walk a lot but I also love my car and Ottawa has lots of lovely drives around so I've got the best of both worlds!

I have lived in communities in the past and enjoy meeting new people.

Our house doesn't stay up late much as most nights are school nights but we welcome people who do!


Not sure what to put here. I've lived in a yoga ashram in the past, so I've got a strong background in community and yoga. I'm not rigid about much and I like going to bed fairly early. I have a great relationship with my daughter and being a good mom is really important to me. I'm not very serious about much and I enjoy time to myself at least as much as I enjoy good company.

Check out the link to my website, which is really a link to my personal blog. I have been writing for years and a lot of my thoughts wind up in the blog.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can now say I've been a host to an authentic Couch Surfer. I'm hoping to find a place in Paris this summer for my daughter and I to stay.

We will be hosting an actor for the Ottawa Fringe Festival June 14-26 and we will be away June 29-July 8 so our couch will not be available then. Come some other time! You can walk to so many places from our house :)


I have a friend, who's a musician, who said he had a great time using this service. In the past I've hosted performers at the Fringe Festival and it's been fun. I also would like to travel with my daughter in the future and this seemed like a good way to plan a trip.
