A New Year. A  New You

A New Year. A New You

With another year gone by, the now is the perfect time to create & meditate on new intentions. New beginnings that are filled with dream seeking, health & self-love also known as Mehta in the Yoga tradition. Starting this new chapter of our life with a positive mindset will get you on a path to fulfilling your dreams. It’s the perfect time to get on the right track to a healthy way of living through exercising not just physically, but also mentally to balance the mind, body and spirit connection. Make yourself a promise this year for embracing the beauty that you are made of. Maybe let this be your new year intention,  practicing being kinder not just to others but being more loving and kinder towards yourself. Accepting the beautiful human that you are made of. Loving yourself from the inside out is the beginning to a healthy and happy life. Accepting who you are, perfectly imperfect you, just as you are. Here’s to another year celebrating you. Cheers ! As for yoga, some of you have inquired about when the next session is taking place. Beginning Monday January 11th…. I will be offering a 4 week session once again at the New Hope Church in St. Catharines. It was a great turn out and the space is quite nice with a nice vibe. Scroll down for more information on the winter session. Much love to you always. Namaste,...

But, along this path to freedom is the practice or discipline of the asanas. The postures are a journey to the soul. And this journey to the soul is a place where we ignite the inner light found within. Arm balances can be intimidating when you first begin to progress forward in your asana practice.

It teaches one to stay calm within when things get challenging on their mat, and it allows one to approach things in a more calmer, focused manner. The pose I chose to share with you is the Side Crane Pose also known as Parsva Bakasana. There is so much happening in this pose. It’s an arm balance which creates strength in your upper body and core. It’s a twisting pose that helps ring and twist out all the stuff we hang onto in our physical body.

Remember those fearless days as a child leaping effortlessly into a cartwheel without any thought or apprehension? Try to bring yourself back to those moments of freedom, of letting loose and just doing. We need to bring that childplay sensation back into our adulthood and just go with the flow and see what...

Dolphin Plank From Downward Dog, hinge forward until you come into a Plank Pose position where your shoulders are directly over your wrists and there’s a straight line of energy from the back of your skull to the back of your heels. From here, bend your elbows and place them on your mat one at a time as you come into Dolphin Plank or Forearm Plank.
