Yogi's are always the most interesting people I meet. They come from all walks of life with the most interesting journeys. I often find that yogi's have an "a-ha" moment in life where they want to slow down and de-stress from work/life. It's hard to stop living the life you think you're supposed to have and start enjoying the life you want. Most times, it's our ego's holding us back. "what will people think of me?" It's definitely hard to live outside the box of what our society has deemed "normal" but so freeing once you figure out what works for you.

Baby steps to get to where we're going...
You know the expression "you gotta walk before you run"
We teach our children this all the time. Things take time to develop, explaining to our kids about not getting frustrated and to just keep practicing whatever skill it is they are trying to master. So how come we can't take our own advice sometimes?
What better way to get to know us by coming to meet us and chat?
We will be hosting our first Meet & Greet for past clients to come say hi and catch up and also for new clients to come see what we're all about.
We have some amazing giveaways and delicious snacks just for showing up.
So bring a friend, partner or your kids to this event.
RSVP online on eventbrite and get an additional chance to enter our giveaways!
What did you do this Sunday to treat yourself?
While it might be difficult to find time away from being a mom, taking a break when I have someone willing to watch the kids helps me come back refreshed and ready to tackle the next challenge my kids throw my way.
Sundays are my day for Selfcare, whether that means going for a walk on my own, meeting with some friends, watching a movie or going to the salon, I try to fit something in on Sundays just for ME (big or small).
Santa's belly might not have a baby, but he sure knows how to get into a yoga pose.
Everyone's schedule gets busy during the holidays and that's when we forget to make time for our mind and body. Take some time out of your busy holiday schedule to get in some "me time." Whatever that may be for you. A movie with a friend, dinner at your favorite place, read a book by the fire or just spend an evening at home. It's okay to say no to some plans this season and use that time to help yourself recharge.
Mommy Brain – is this a real thing?
Pregnant or just had your baby and feel like you can’t string two sentences together or remember what you ate for dinner last night? I’ve been doing some research and it seems that “mommy brain” is a real thing. Researchers from the Autonomous University of Barcelona have published data showing that brain activation patterns change in women during motherhood and can last up to 2-years postpartum.
We love hearing from our clients!
"It was an amazing experience. I felt healthy and calm throughout my pregnancy, and during my labour, the breathing, not clenching the jaw, hip circles, and warrior pose helped me so much. Even the nurse complimented on the way I was handling the labour pain. She Om-d with me whenever I took a breath. Thank you!"

When people think of yoga and sometimes their yoga teachers, I feel like they always imagine some version of a barefoot hippy person who drinks green juice, eats vegetarian and never has any worries. While I might do some of these things, I know I am no where close to the version of what I imagine to be a true yogi. In my mind, I have this idea that some person living off the side of a mountain practicing yoga and meditating for days in a cave is this true yogi (lol) and he is who I think about when I need to be more zen and dial down the drama in my life.
