FEBRUARY VIEWS 2012 – Healthy Hearts

  The heart is the center or middle point of the human chakra system AND at the studio this week we are mid-way to accomplishing the Journey of Our Hearts! For those who are not partaking in this program, might I share that this journey is varied and unique for all of us who are taking it. Just as there are...

JANUARY VIEWS 2012 – Footprints

  It’s been an interesting year! World events aside, recent developments in our little world have brought yet another need for change. With a baby girl taking her first few solo steps, it seems somewhat symbolic that I too need to step forward. January will mark nine years of operating Body Harmony Yoga, and this anniversary will start with the Journey...

DECEMBER VIEWS 2011 – Gift of Light

  Christmas has evolved into something different for me over the years, and I believe this to be common. It is ultimately a celebration, with a few days off and time to spend with family and friends. However, it is a holiday that isn’t always anticipated by all. To surpass any ‘inner Grinch’ this holiday season, connect with what’s most important. Move...

NOVEMBER VIEWS 2011 – Ahimsa

  A well intended yogi friend said to me recently, “I can’t believe people don’t know what this means!” I had an inner smile because we were referring to a concept taught to us at a very young age. The concept was Ahimsa, a Sanskrit word which means ‘do no harm,’ and implies that non-violence is vital to a peaceful existence....

OCTOBER VIEWS 2011 – What is Your Passion?

  Yoga is my passion. Simply stated, regardless of the question, yoga is usually the answer. It seems there is always a way to bring some element of yoga into a conversation. Feeling anxious? Do Yoga. Not sleeping? Breathe and meditate. Wondering about what direction to take your career? Dedicate your yoga practice with the intention to find guidance, then repeatedly ask yourself...

SEPTEMBER VIEWS 2011 – Monkey Mind

  My husband is quite the comedian. Earlier this week he sang, "Five little monkeys, jumping in your head" and although it would sound like this tune was directed to a young child, in this case he was referring to me. I guess the multi-tasking of motherhood can make one look a little whimsical and somewhat indecisive. Let this be the...

AUGUST VIEWS 2011 – Sweet Surrender

  Can you remember a time you may have been holding onto 'the idea of something' that just wasn't flowing? You probably didn't feel very good. Imagine how it would have felt if you completely let go and detached from 'the idea' and acknowledged what actually was. Likely, the feeling would resemble that of a light feather. Surrendering to the moment and accepting 'what actually is' invites...

JULY VIEWS 2011 – Celebrations!

In light of the recent Stanley Cup episode, many of us British Columbians are still left with remnants of disappointment, wondering how to go about celebrating Canada Day with our usual sense of pride. As Canadians we are typically deemed friendly and down-to-earth, making us wonder at the whirlwind of events that metastasized horribly wrong, and then cringe at the spectacle...

JUNE VIEWS 2011 – Making Time for You

If we had more time, we would spend extra hours with people we care for, play outside more often, read things we enjoy and revel in all that we value in life. It seems that in this day and age, as we accept more responsibility, there is less time devoted to balancing play, love and work. We all make varying choices...

MAY VIEWS 2011 – A Moment for Mother’s

The experience of motherhood changes pretty much everything, especially the perception of Mother’s Day! On that one day in May that is designated to honour the mother, it now seems to me that cards, flowers, jewellery and humble words of thanks are somewhat insignificant. How can one possibly begin to acknowledge the never ending nurturing nature of a loving Mom? It’s true...
