My policy and curriculum work involves mind-body practices in teacher education and professional development. I study school-based yoga curriculum and teacher training programs, and relate this work to critical pedagogy and social justice education. I am is also interested in mindfulness pedagogy for post-secondary education, with connections to philosophy of education and critical social theories. 

I am certified to teach yoga to both teens and adults and have been teaching a weekly adult yoga class on the QC campus since 2009. 

I also provide mindful movement workshops to educators at all levels. Workshop participants have had the following to say.

I appreciate the level of background information and research provided and especially the experiential practice opportunities.
