SPIRIT OF THE HOLIDAYS

Happy Holidays! My family salutes you from a warm climate, with this photo taken a few weeks ago near our home, after the first snowfall of the season.

YOGA BY THE BEACH – 15TH & FINAL SEASON

With so much happening on the home front, this years Yoga by the Beach season has definitely snuck up on me. Having been in the midst of selling our home and of course buying another, it feels like I am entering a territory all too familiar to many of my readers! We chose a home located in our same general area of North...

REASON FOR THE SEASON

Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring! This is the first year in more than a decade that I have remained in Canada for ALL the seasons. Although Canada is where my family prefers to be, the allergy season in Vancouver is usually the time of year I get the ‘fever’ and want to be any where else. So this week, the mantra...

FOUNDATIONS OF YOGA THERAPY

Namaste and Happy 2017! May it be better than 2016. Life ebbs and flows, thus if the wave of last year was in ebb, look forward to the flow of this next wave to shore.  Last year was not the best for me, but last week I graduated from the Foundations of Yoga Therapy Teacher Training.

OCTOBER VIEWS – WHY PRACTICE YOGA?

Why Practice Yoga? There are too many reasons to practice yoga and by this time, I am sure you have heard about most of them. Since I only have a few seconds to capture your attention, it is overwhelming to know where to begin! So reason #1 for practicing yoga, ANXIETY. Everyone has experienced worrisome, fearful and nerve racking sensations which leave us short...

JANUARY VIEWS – A Belief in Miracles

It is with amazement that yet another year has nearly passed us by! Now, with most holiday festivities under ones belt (so to speak) we can sit back to contemplate the entire flurry with a sense of gratitude, then look ahead with wonder to the potential of 2016. With time fleeting the way it has, when we speak of the potential of reopening...

Lori is back in BC and happy to share Hatha Yoga Heaven in a special space with a spectacular view in North Vancouver. This short series of classes will help us connect with our true PEACE within, so we can focus on prayer and positivity for a better world. If your heartfelt concerns are of war, homelessness or are perhaps...

OCTOBER VIEWS – Heaven On Earth

As another chapter in my life comes to a close, I find myself reflecting on things that bring a yearning to stay in this South American country. Pure and simple moments come to mind, like that of the early morning snuggles with a warm, sweet child who climbs into bed and whispers ¨Morning Mama.¨ Then, there is the feeling of the morning...
