What season is it anyway? Looking at the weather forecast we’re lurching between winter and spring this week. It’s all a bit confusing to be honest, normally I’d be talking about transitions times rather later in the year. However, that’s the nature of change I suppose.

How’s your balance? This week in my drop-in classes I am focusing on creating balance, not just through one practice but through all of my offerings.

Light Up by Jacquelyn

Post Image

Are you a vessel of light? It’s a great pleasure to watch each day getting a little longer as we slowly move through winter towards spring. In Scotland, my original home, we have very little light in the winter so a cold bright Canadian day is a treat. Sadly, not all of them are like […]

Heart Opening by Michelle

Post Image

Is your heart open? I have noticed that at this time of year I walk around more hunched over, trying to stay warm and conserve the heat in my body. The people that I see walking outside are also walking with this posture. With the sudden drop in temperature this week, I know that this […]

Have you found balance in your life? Although we’re not always conscious of it, we walk a lot of tightropes in our everyday lives. We’re constantly seeking the middle ground, a balance between one extreme and another. Between work and play, family and friends, giving and taking, time and money… One of the trickiest balances […]

Get into the flow of life… I have been pondering why this year seems to hold the power to unlock limitations that I had imposed on myself and the concept of flow has been coming up for me again and again. I have been reminded, through the things people have said to me, through quotes […]

Why did I change my life and throw myself into yoga? As we start a new year, I feel the urge to take stock. Although we don’t want to get caught up in the past or let it define our future, it is sometimes useful to notice the changes we’ve undergone. Since I’m thinking about […]

What does 2013 hold for you? Happy New Year! 2013 is going to be fantastic. Let’s just all agree on that, right now.
