‘Be who you needed when you were younger’ ~Stephi Wagner
This message guides me.
🌱I'm intentionally surrounded by people who support my practice of self-compassion & self-love.
💕My daily eight limb yoga practice and Indigenous cultural practices support me in allowing more space for truth & goodness to flow in.
🌱I'm honoured to walk alongside many beautiful souls in their journeys to unconditional self-love... this is a privilege.
💕I am dedicated to growing by continually learning and honouring my Cree culture, the roots of yoga, and psychology. Each as a support in making sense of the complexities in life.
🌱My work at Athabasca University and CCPA allows me to be a guide in the journey to decolonization by emphasizing 'being' over 'doing'. It is hard, slow, & humbling spirit-based work.
💕As the creator of the Trauma-Informed Yoga Psychology School, a registered yoga school offering both a 200-hour YTT and 300-hour YTT, I am grateful to have our friends as faculty who share their gifts so generously, and grateful to be growing our trauma-informed yoga psychology family and community who share their hearts in such inspiring ways. ♥️
Looking forward to learning with you!

I am Métis-Cree, a member of the Métis Nation of Alberta, and the Indigenous Director of the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association. I live on sacred lands now called Canmore and celebrate all Nations and peoples, who live, work, play, and help care for these lands. As an act of reconciliation and decolonization, may we work together to answer the TRC's Calls to Action: Truth & Reconciliation Commission Reports and Findings.
