A HAPPY NEW YEAR

                        This year I turn 50. Although I do not look or feel half a century old, there are telltale signs! Energy levels are somewhat different from the 30's and this is one human sign of aging to be considered with the addition of nearly 500 hours of Yoga Therapy studies, which have been incorporated to my 2019 schedule.

ON THIS HARVEST MOON

                                          Today I write for my own wellness, but with the hope that the timing of this message will resonate with even one person.

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.

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. It was an amazing experience that was enjoyed immensely and...

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!
