An Act of Self-Love

During class recently, it came to me that yoga is such a generous gift we give ourselves: a simple act of self-love. Even if it's just a few minutes a day, or an hour or two a week, it is a place to land. To return to. To return to ourselves. To return to love.… Continue reading An Act of Self-Love

Authentic Living

Sometimes we abandon our yoga… Continue reading Authentic Living

The Value of Solitude

Often our self-care or our "me time" includes fun social events, hanging out with friends, or indulging our senses. All great ideas!

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. It is wonderful to see so much variety for people to choose from!
