Yoga in the time of Corona

A little play on words from the book Love in the Time of Cholera .  If you haven't read it.... :) Now you may have the time.
All kidding aside, I do hope everyone is doing well during these unsettled times.  This too shall pass and I hope everyone and their friends and families stay as healthy as possible. 

Yoga, on the surface may seem like a frivolous thing during this time, but I know from other hard moments in my life, it was Yoga that helped me through.  I have been reading Mr. Iyengar's book, Light on Life, online for the last few days and will continue for as long as can.  He writes about his Yogic Journey that, "It would be impossible to overestimate the gratitude I bear to this great subject that saved and uplifted me."

At this time, like so many others, I have cancelled all my classes for at least the next few weeks.
As the timing is uncertain, I will postpone the start of my Spring Session. I did want to honour a post I made about a special on an online private class with me though.  Please message me if you are interested in a private online session.
I also have many other great past online sessions that you can access and am currently having a March online and Yoga for Sports online session and have an April session beginning.
I have posted below some of the options to these classes. 

Thank you again for your participation in past classes and online classes.  We will figure out for those who I owe classes to how to best make these up.

Much love to you all and hope you are all doing well.  Please feel free to message me if you would like.
KInd regards,

This Sunday's Peace Practice will be online on my Facebook page from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.
Current and most recent online classes.  Yoga for Sports is now online.
Please message me to join a current or past session.

Funding Received to support Yoga for Sports Class!

Thanks to the Iyengar Yoga Association of Canada for funding to support a local program in the Prince Albert area - Yoga For Sports.

I have prepared this program based on B.K.S. Iyengar's book - Yoga for Sports: A Journey towards Health and Healing, and my years of training as an Iyengar yoga teacher.

I really enjoyed sports as a youth and still do today.  I wish I had had proper yoga training when I was younger, not just a few yoga postures.  Although this can be a good introduction to yoga in schools, there really is a lot more to developing the mind, cultivating the breath and learning when to keep going and when it is better to recuperate.  Sports persons, dancers and musicians must practice a lot.  This can take their toll not just physically, but mentally and emotionally - and if not in tune with yourself, can begin to weigh one down with all the other responsibilities. 

This program is about Yoga to attain excellence - in flexibility, strength, speed, agility, coordination, concentration, balance and stability.
It also will give tips and yoga practices for games/performances & during travel, recovery from strains, how to overcome over-training and relaxation and rejuvenation for exhaustion and fatigue.

Each class will have a different theme and address the whole body, breath and mind.
I will be teaching this class at Ballet N' All That Jazz in Prince Albert beginning on February 29th - April 4th.  The funding will cover much of the costs so everyone can attend for a very low price of $30 for 6 classes.
This class is open to anyone interested. Please see poster below and pre-register.
I am also looking to share this program with schools, groups, clubs, teams, etc. who may not be able to join on this day. If you are interested, or know someone who might be interested I have attached a flyer that can be shared.
Please feel free to contact me at:
Thank you again to the support from the Canadian Iyengar community and the Prince Albert/Lakeland community who supports these yoga classes.
Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti, (Om Peace, Peace, Peace)

2020 New Decade, New Yoga Schedule

Breath + Awareness

Happy New Year's!!
Crazy to believe the year 2020 upon us! 
2019 was a full year here for me and as I reflect on the classes, people, connections, travel, workshops I am truly humbled and grateful for everyone who was a part of it.

Receptivity - the theme for the Peru yoga retreat has really become a large part of my yoga practice and teaching.  My tag line since the very beginning has been "Helping Unite Body, Breath and Mind".  Helping, is a key word, as I really am just sharing the yogic teachings the best I can to my own knowledge.  Being receptive and awareness will continue to be key words as 2020 flourishes.

When we walk, talk, think and breath with awareness - we have more opportunities to weave peace, acceptance and contentment into our own lives.

I wish you the very best is this upcoming year and I really hope to see you in an upcoming class or workshop where we can explore and expand together..  As Geeta has said, "It is your practice that brings the secrets to you. No teacher can give you the secrets."

I have attached posters for the upcoming Winter 2020 session.  I know I had sent out before, but I have updated a few dates/times and added a few classes too.  Yoga for Sports is an exciting new class that I hope to have enough people join to run.  If you know anyone please share the poster with them.  I also just put out the poster for my Jan/Feb. Onlines session.  2020 - 20 online classes for 20 minutes each.  Do one short one if you don't have a lot of time or put a few together for a longer session.

If possible please email, text or message me if you are interested in joining the new session.

December Daily Gratitude Challenge - Days 1-13

I posted about a week ago about the December Challenge I started.  How is your gratitude journal going? 

Please feel free to share things you have discovered during your day to be grateful for.

I know I posted Days 4 already, but thought I'd add them all here so far.

With Gratitude,


Winter 2020 Yoga Class Schedule

          Newsletter I recently sent out.  If you would like to be added to my mailing list also please email me and I will add you!

Happy Christmas, Merry New Year!!!

Winter 2020 Class Schedule

I am enjoying looking out at the full moon tonight.  It is always so nice as in the winter the moon lights up the whole yard with the white snow to reflect off of.

It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of another year.  I have been doing a December Daily Gratitude on my Instagram and Facebook page.  Although I may not post this particular thought daily, I am truly grateful to all of you. So, as the Fall session comes to an end I wanted to take this time to say thank you so much for joining classes in the past and wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy, Happy New Year.

I also wanted to share with you my upcoming Winter 2020 Yoga classes. 

Most of my class days and times are remaining the same. I will have a few new classes. A Family Yoga class once a month at the Arts Centre and I am excited also about adding a 4-6 week Yoga for Sports class. I am just finishing up details, but have been working to create something to enhance your sport or workout program.  It will include topics like - Yoga practices and tips prior to games, overcoming over training, balance and strength, tips for sportswomen - to name a few.
I do still have a few workshops details to finalize before posting the posters, but the dates are set and on my website.  My friend Terra and I will be leading another retreat day on January 26th in Christopher Lake and I will be teaching a workshop once a month in Saskatoon.

So, wishing you again a wonderful holiday and I will probably send a reminder email in the early new year.
If you are interested in attending any classes please send me a note.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti,

p.s.  I am hosting a Winter Solstice class early on December 18th  - a few spaces are still left if you'd like to join.
