“Making your way in the world today…

…takes everything you’ve got.  Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot.”  If you are of a certain age, or into retro tv, you know this theme song to the popular show Cheers.  It was so beloved in our house, my sister’s boyfriend (now husband) would … 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

Prop me up…

Just a little over a year ago, I was team teaching a charity class at Beyond Yoga Studio & Wellness Centre.  In typical baby girl fashion, I had asked to teach first so once my turn was done, I could soak up the vibes of Carole and Diane’s instruction.  Our … Read more

Got Class?

There’s a saying that the hardest thing about a yoga class is getting there.  I find this particularly true in December and January.  Life is busy, the weather is cold and taking care of ourselves tends to take a back seat.  While there are a lot of great reasons to … Read more

Well, I’m Slim Shady…

Have you ever lost your mojo?  Your self-confidence?  Your aplomb?  It happened to me a few weeks ago. I was sort of drifting, more emotional than usual (and ask around, that’s pretty emotional), just feeling unsure.  This may sound silly to some, but honestly I kind of lost my pluck. … Read more

Rock on Hanuman

I always appreciate those of you who become really active in the summer months.  Evening walks, running marathons, enjoying the outdoors.  I love the outdoors very much, but in the heat of the summer I often become more of a cocktails on the dock kind of girl than a run … Read more

Join the Kegel Revolution…

So, apparently there is a kegel revolution. Yes, those kegels, and yes a revolution.  An uncomfortable topic to be sure, but an important one for everyone, yes everyone.  So any Dudes that were going to stop reading here, hang in there.  This is for you too. Honestly, this is uncomfortable … Read more
