About

Moths are creatures of the night, guided by the stars and the light of the moon. They are symbols of intuition, faith, vulnerability and truth. Their symbolism guide my work as a yoga teacher, activist and community builder.

My favourite style of yoga is yin, but I love vinyasa, hatha, restorative and moon salutations too. All my classes are grounded in a trauma sensitive approach and utilize consent. I regularly offer outdoor classes under the light of the moon and I am always looking for more opportunities to teach. Right now I offer most of my classes through Community Yoga Vancouver.

Politically my views are most influenced by queer, anti-racist, anti-colonial and feminist thinking. It is my goal to encourage accessibility within the communities that have offered me so many lessons and opportunities to heal and grow. The posts written here are my offerings of grounded, critical reflections. I hope they inspire whoever reads them to deepen their consciousness (satya) and awaken their compassion(ahimsa).

It is my wish that we might all utilize yoga and mindfulness as a revolutionary tool.

Most of my work takes places on the traditional, ancestral and un-ceded territories of the Squamish (Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw), Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm) and Tsleil-Waututh.

  1. I’m so glad to have found your blog– I identify greatly with your intention. I have been a long-time political prisoner advocate & anti-racist activist in Philly. I utilized my own yoga practice to heal from trauma & prevent burn-out in my organizing work. I now teach vinyasa & offer seva practices on-site to allies. It feels absolutely consistent– my politics revolve around healthy, empowered individuals & communities. Yoga is another vehicle. In solidarity & love, Maiga

  2. If you want to be filthy rich, just be one of the early ones to figure out what’s the next trend that 20s-30s white women with excess time and cash flow will glob on to. No doubt it will be some other kind of “cultural expropriation” that helps them to feel meaningful, provides a modicum of exercise, and allows them to wear clothes that help show off their bodies. I think Karate Kid started it all off – back then women only had Jazzercise. Some genius guy said Jazzercise + Karate = $$$$$$
