Have you been taking care of yourself?
I'm glad you're here because I want to help you, the woman who may be feeling that you’ve somehow lost yourself among the years and responsibilities of life.
You may be a young person who’s had responsibility thrust
on them early in life. You haven’t even asked the question “Who am I?”
You may feel overwhelmed with the sacrifices you’ve had to make in your life and feel selfish asking
“When is it MY time?”
You may have an empty nest and find yourself wondering “What now?”
You may be feeling lost within yourself,
under all the different hats you wear.
I want to help you gather all the different aspects of you into a being that cares for, is aware of and
We will achieve this through a yoga practice that accommodates and is kind to your body, mind and emotions

A yoga practice that isn’t full of fluff and airy-fairy talk.
I know you don’t have the patience for that,

Hi! I'm Aileen,
your Mad Yogi!
Here's my YOGA journey...the short version!
I've always been interested in yoga but never got to study and practice until I found out I was pregnant! It started off as a prenatal exercise and quickly became a passion.
I started learning everything I could but had doubts because, I didn't have the "yoga body" and all the arm balances and inversions felt so intimidating. Plus, I was busy with other aspects of life, mainly in my corporate career, and wondered how I could fit this new passion in my limited every-day living.
But I still wanted to become a teacher and realized my yoga passion revolved around these principles:
How to attain maximum benefit while keeping the body safe in its alignment, muscle engagement and joint articulation;
How to take the challenges I encountered on the mat,
off the mat and into my heart and head space;
That I could be who I was physically [40-something, round and had a mommy-belly] and still be an effective, engaged and mindful yoga practitioner;
How to fit yoga into my busy life; and
How can I help others who are in the same body, heart and head space as I was do the same.
A few years on, I still believe in these ideals and they have influenced my sequencing system and style of teaching.
I'm here to help women
