As a ballet dancer for over 16 years, Glenda developed a strong relationship to her body through movement. Starting in a small class at a gym in the early 90s, her study and practice of yoga evolved over the ensuing years and has spanned many teachers and styles including Iyengar yoga, Jivamukti, Kundalini, and Hatha. It has been a consistent, yet ever-changing, relationship in her life.
She started her first teacher training to become a Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher in 2012, a 200-hour program and completed a 200-hour Hatha Yoga teacher training in 2013. In 2015, she completed the Restorative Yoga teacher training at Octopus Garden.
Glenda is a practicing psychotherapist working primarily in the area of grief and trauma. She’s also the founder and executive director of a non-profit organization dedicated to creating space for conversations on dying, death, and grief. She focuses on the integration of mind and body therapies to support people on their healing journeys. Restorative yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and deep therapeutic body-centred therapies are core aspects to her practice. Glenda uses mindfulness and meditation as important components in her own daily practice.
She teaches Restorative Yoga and integrates mindfulness and other body centred themes into her classes.
