Florence was first introduced to yoga and pilates in her teens as a dancer and competitive athlete. She was immediately intrigued by the holistic approach to movement and began to attend yoga regularly to complement her intensive dance training. The early exposure to yoga and dance set the foundation for the career path she chose to pursue.
Florence furthered her dance experience as a contemporary dancer and obtained a B.Sc. of Kinesiology at McMaster University in 2011. Teaming up with the artistic director of the contemporary company, Dave Wilson, she developed introductory dance classes for children and teens across Hamilton. Inspired to further her teaching skill set she obtained her Yoga Teacher Certification in Hatha Vinyasa Yoga. Yoga has since become one of her primary forms of expression and has enriched her appreciation for the spiritual and mental manifestations in the body.
Currently, Florence is completing her studies at the Canadian College of Osteopathy in Toronto. Set to begin her fourth year this Fall 2015, she is passionate about founding a practice focused on women’s health and the paediatric population. Whether it is teaching or treating, Florence draws upon her vast knowledge of human anatomy and mechanics to empower, inspire and motivate. She appreciates the inter-relatedness of the body and is focused on achieving strength with a balanced whole body approach.
