I know it’s a generic sentiment but I’m going to say it anyway — time just flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe a whole year has gone by since I attended the last Toronto Yoga Conference. I had a dream a while back in...

If you take my Restorative Yoga Classes, or you practice Restorative Yoga on your own, then you likely understand how important a bolster is to getting the most out of your practice. A bolster provides the support necessary for the body to really truly relax so that yo...

Is there a special girl (aged 8-12 yrs old) in your life who is interested in learning about yoga, exploring mindfulness and making her own vision board creations?! Register her with the MacDonald-Headingley Recreation District to join the “Girls’ Mindfulness and Yoga”...
