Happy Lives Yoga, Dance, & Wellness has officially opened in downtown Oshawa.

Our grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a meet and greet was held on June 13, 2019.  The turn out was amazing and we are blown away by all of the love and support from the community. A special thanks to Mayor Dan Carter, city councillors Rick Kerr, Jane Hurst, and Derek Giberson, as well as Nancy Shaw, CEO of the Oshawa Chamber of Commerce for welcoming us into the Oshawa business community with open arms.

And of course, a big thank you to my family and friends, the team at Happy Lives, and everyone else who took time out of their day to be a part of the celebration.

At Happy Lives, we offer a variety of yoga classes, including classes for beginners, kids, and seniors. Private yoga sessions and Reiki healing is also offered.

We have a bi-weekly introduction to essential oils workshop where you can learn about how to use essential oils in your everyday life and we will soon be adding meditation, and a 50s & 60s dance class to the schedule.

I started practising yoga a few years ago and it was the beginning of many positive shifts in my life which inspired me to want to help share yoga with others.

I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in February 2019 and have specialized training in restorative yoga as well as teaching yoga to beginners. With Happy Lives, I really wanted to create a space where people can feel like they are part of a community, and where health and wellness is encouraged and supported.

Come join me and my team at Happy Lives to escape the stress of life and focus on self-care. We are located at 50 Richmond St. E., Unit 106b (McLaughlin Square). Check us out at, and on Facebook at happyliveswellness.
