There is no place like home…

Years ago, I was at a wedding where a wise redhead said in her speech “Life is a journey, not a guided tour”.  She was not the first, nor the last person to have said this, however, it is her words that have stuck with me, through this always surprising … Read more

Your Hips Don’t Lie…

So, I had an aha moment while writing this blog.  I have a love/hate relationship with pigeon pose, I see all the benefits, often crave it, but just as often kind of hate it.                 I always wondered why Eka Pada Rajakapotasana was … Read more

I hate the world today…

Have you ever had one of those days, where literally you hate the world, and perhaps yourself in the process?  Where not only are you frustrated by the annoyances of the moment, but you are so seriously crusty that you even dig up previous grievances to relive them in your … Read more

Get Out!

Ah, there is nothing like winter in Ottawa.  So far, this winter, not only have we repeatedly been the coldest capital on the planet (not the contest one wants to win), many days it has actually been colder here than it is on Mars.  I always heard one couldn’t actually … Read more

The Seventh Sense…

Do you remember growing up learning about your five senses? Maybe you can even still picture the cardboard cut-outs on your kindergarten wall with the drawings of sight, taste, smell, sound and touch.  Who knew that neurologists believe we have between 9 and 21 senses, perhaps some did, but I … Read more

Jedi Mind Tricks

So, recently pink eye, an ear infection, a respiratory virus and the shingles all hit our house all in the same week. I would love to say I handled this week with the grace and strength of a good vinyasa flow, but honestly, upon the last diagnosis I crawled into … Read more
