APRIL VIEWS 2011 – Our Earth

Recent earthquakes and the potential of another looming is not something we wish to hear about, however I would like to shed some light on what I think is happening here. Natural disasters are brought upon us to teach us about LOVE, rather than fear. Although it’s a good idea to prepare for what could come, the focus now is...

MARCH VIEWS 2011 – Making Sense of Scents

There is something so soothing about the scent of a newborn. The comforting and intoxicating smell of a baby’s face quite often has us craving even more of its freshness. The aroma of Johnson’s Baby Products is not what I’m referring to, but rather the natural scent of a little ones skin. The skin, the human body’s largest organ, doesn’t smell...

FEBRUARY VIEWS 2011 – Life Force Energy

As I write this, the anticipation is building about the birthing process of my first child. Time and again I remind students about the power of our breath and all that it holds. What a great reminder for myself! Our hearts pump oxygen from the breath through the blood in our bodies, but along with this movement of oxygen to...

JANUARY VIEWS 2011 – Receiving a New Year

With 2011 only a few breaths away, we anticipate an extraordinary year at Body Harmony! It could be 'just another year' for you, or perhaps you are ready to make a creative and vibrant difference in your life. If life has been ordinary, let's move from that place of ordinary to the extraordinary together. Either take steps to do the things you've always wanted or be open...

NOVEMBER VIEWS 2010 – A Growing Awareness

Entering the third trimester of pregnancy will make the next few months "the last of life as I know it”. As expected though, this growing experience has brought such wonderful connections with other prenatals, new moms and their babies, along with moms I’ve known for years. The North Shore is absolutely blessed with a community that cares, shares, recycles and...

OCTOBER VIEWS 2010 – Family Virtues

'Patience is a virtue,' my grandmother always used to say. As a young girl, the concept of a virtue was often difficult to understand. Now as an adult, I find it is the patience aspect of this phrase that has me more perplexed! Why is it that being patient with family is often the most challenging practice of all? Through...

SEPTEMBER VIEWS 2010 – A Time for Change

Energetically, there is a feeling and onset of change here on the West Coast. In September, students go back to school, schedules shift, and there can be a sudden chill in the air that comes with the autumn changing of the trees. The parks are noticeably more quiet, fruit stands close and Yoga by the Beach wraps up for another...

SUMMER VIEWS 2010 – How Does Your Garden Grow?

  Canadians everywhere are wondering about our summer weather! It’s worth considering that the conditions we have may not be completely beyond our control. One thing is for sure, taking on an attitude of reciprocity with Mother Earth would at least bring a shift within our selves. When there is a balance of giving and receiving of all things, life is...

JUNE VIEWS 2010 – A Breath of Fresh Air

We have all experienced anxiety or a sleepless night. So when you're restless, or it’s 3:30am and you haven’t had an adequate sleep, what do you do? Rather than allow your mind to run wild, look at it as an opportunity to simply focus on the moment. Sit still or lie down in śavāsana (the corpse pose), deepen your breathing, and just be...
