Gentle Yoga | Summer in Port Hope

As I work on a collective vision for my growing business, I have watched many other yoga studios and teachers surfacing over the years.

However, it can also make teachers doubt what they really have to offer: who am I against all… Continue reading Gentle Yoga | Summer in Port Hope

Over 20 Years of Yoga

  Today was a fun day. I started unpacking Rubbermaid bins I hadn't opened in about 6 years. I re-discovered the old yoga teacher training notes, from my personal training and from the teacher training I designed and guided. I found my old portfolio with the Child and Youth Worker diploma, and my reiki and… Continue reading Over 20 Years of Yoga

2018 Looking Ahead

  YOGA MANUAL: THE GENTLE WAY OF HATHA   I will finally have time to focus on writing this year. The manual is very simple in theory, and it has been brewing in my mind since 2006.

Yoga Life 2016

Just realizing I haven't posted a yoga blog since 2015?! Sorry about that. Perhaps no one else noticed either... 2016 has been a very busy (and to be honest, stressful) year thus far. Good news is it has been full of growth and positive new beginnings. I mean, this is my new office view: So… Continue reading Yoga Life 2016

Workshop | A Journey Through Self Care

What soothes your soul? Refills your cup? What do you need to feel fulfilled? This is something I've been exploring over the last few months, and years.
