“Listening to and understanding our inner sufferings will resolve most of the problems we encounter”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
Kerri has been an avid yogi and dancer since her teen years taking yoga and BodyFlow at Goodlife Fitness with her mom and sister. After a brief yoga break-up, she came back to a frequent yoga practice to challenge the stress she experienced during her undergraduate degree in Dance at York University, making her way to the Modo Yoga community. She received her 500hr Modo Teacher Training in Kelowna BC in 2018. With an eye out for mind, body, and spirit therapies Kerri expanded to become a Reiki Masters Practitioner. She has since moved on to complete Kids Yoga Teacher Training through Rainbow Kids Yoga (2018), Restorative Teacher Training through Yoga International (2018), and Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher Training through the New Leaf foundation (2019). Kerri added Mystical Numerology (2020) and Mantra work to her arsenal of healing. During the pandemic, Kerri fostered her 'live to learn' philosophy by adding two additional yoga certifications to her arsenal, Modo Calm (2021) and Modo Flow (2021), yin and vinyasa yoga training from Modo Yoga International. Kerri recently graduated from Pratt Institute's Dance/Movement Therapy Masters program and is now a Registered Dance/Movement Therapist (2022).
Kerri brings her curiosity and open heart into every class she teaches, allowing her students the space to be open themselves. Her goal in classes and treatments is to hold space for people and give them the tools for their own healing. She encourages everyone to approach life with a child-like freedom to truly express their authentic, moment-to-moment self. Kerri believes in the power of the mental, spiritual and physical health balance. Her therapy practice approaches people with an acceptance of whatever they bring with them today.

Dance movement therapy (DMT) is based on the premise that thoughts, feelings and the experience of self are expressed through the body and movement. It is a relational process that integrates emotional, cognitive, physical and social aspects of self.
The DMT approach incorporates knowledge from psychotherapeutic approaches, psychology, sensorimotor and developmental movement, movement analysis and neuroscience. The elements of dance (body awareness, rhythm, time, space, gesture, posture, dynamics) are applied as a framework for exploration, discovery, learning and change. DMT focuses on movement behaviour as it emerges in the therapeutic relationship. Expressive, communicative, and adaptive behaviours are all considered for group and individual treatment. Body movement, as the core component of dance, simultaneously provides the means of assessment and the mode of intervention.
