Grace views the physical practice of yoga as a gateway, not an end in itself. For Grace, the practice of yoga asana teaches us to not only to broaden the breath, but also to expand stillness within ourselves. To inhabit that space more frequently and more comfortably is her ultimate goal, in practice, and in teaching.
Grace’s teaching is rooted in a deep personal exploration of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system, but it has evolved to include the many influences and traditions she has come across over the years. An individual’s journey inward must ultimately lead back outward, to engagement with the community. This realization inspired her to deepen her commitment to development projects, both locally and abroad with the belief that the ultimate goals of yoga are not intended to be confined to the mat.
After 10 years of teaching in Toronto, Grace moved to New York in 2016 where she continues to teach and study under the guidance of Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee, Alison West, Nikki Vilella, and Schuyler Grant.
