Deep gratitude

This is me. I am feeling very blessed.

I have spent the past 10 months teaching yoga to so many amazing people. Thank you!!! You know who you are!

My classes really range in age. Very young people. (in the womb kinda young). To much older than that people. Basically from 0-70 (ish). Lovely lovely people beautiful people. And I am so thankful. I love yoga. And laughing. And sharing the combination with you.

I am about to take my summer holidays. So here are a few images of some of the classes I have had the pleasure of teaching. Next year I’ll attempt to take a few photos of my adult classes too!!! Cause clearly I have a thing for taking the photos with the babies!! And from these you wouldn’t know that I have other classes too!

I look forward to September to begin it all again. So much so that my fall schedule is already up and ready to see!!!!

Big big love

Happy summer adventures. May you enjoy some beaches, some yummy treats, and some quality time with people you love.

come celebrate with me

I have been teaching yoga for 21 years.

21 years ago I was 21 years old!   YES I WAS!   I started teaching yoga to a few of my University student friends in a small space in 1996.  I was scared and excited!  One class turned into two classes.  I changed locations.  More people gathered.  I started putting up posters!  Years passed.  I made an audio tape!  SOLD them.  People continued to come.  And I continued to teach.  I changed locations again!  I started teaching morning monthlong series.  I loved teaching!  I began teaching pre and post natal yoga classes when I was pregnant with my first daughter!  Two years after that I embarked on another yoga teacher training.  People continued to find me and I continued to love teaching!  And then one day (recently) I look up and do the math and realize that decades have gone by!

I have been truly blessed to have shared all these years laughing and crying and moving and growing and loving so many people.  I have been utterly transformed by all the yoga in my life.  It has sustained me!  

I have had the privilege of getting to know so many people over the years.  Some have stayed with me for almost as long as I have been teaching!  I am truly blessed to share life joys and sorrows with you.  And I would like to thank you for being my student!

Please join me for a free yoga class.  Followed by raw treats and tea!!!  All are welcome.  All ages!  Children and babies are welcome!  Even though I know it’s bedtime for some!

Monday February 13,    7pm,      Knox Church, back entrance

Let me know if you have any questions.

In four weeks I will be on this beach.  This will be my fifth raw yoga adventure retreat!  Although the weather in Guelph today is warm enough for a bikini, I’m looking forward to the Ocean!  I love swimming.  I am getting really excited!

Me and my peeps will be yogaing every day with the Ocean!  We will be eating fresh avocados and mangoes and coconuts.  OH MY!  And we will be doing so many other fun things!

You can follow me on Instagram or Facebook to see photos of what we get up too!

When I return at the end of November I will be ready for some winter time yoga!
