Writing this last ‘official’ blog post was more difficult than writing the others. Partly, yes, because life just happens to be really busy for me these days. But I think in large part, I didn’t want to write it. Writing this post, following the last YTT weekend, it marks an ending. It also marks a new beginning, one that I am very proud of, but an ending in the more literal sense: our final weekend together as a group. Sure, we’ll see each other again, that I have no doubt,… Read More

Since my last post in July, time kind of got away from me!  Summer ‘arrived’ for real, with vacations, BBQs with friends, visiting family – lots of fun things that helped balm the pain of the last few months. What is interesting about self-care, like daily yoga practice for example, is that sometimes, when things take a turn for the better in your life, it can be easy to put aside.  Although I have been trying to have a daily yoga and meditation practice since the beginning of this training,… Read More

Journaling is like listening to one’s self and whispering at the same time… It’s been awhile since I took the time to journal.  Well, to be honest, it’s not so simple.  I actually carry a beautiful white and pink journal with the words BE HAPPY on the front cover with me all the time.  At the start of the year, I bought this journal to write my intentions for the road ahead.  My initial posts began with words of gratitude and inspiration, my aspirations and visions, as well as the… Read More

I was pretty nervous driving to Energie EnCorps from Montreal on Saturday morning. My bag was packed the night before and I went to bed too late. I got to the studio too early, always do, and hung out in the Tim’s parking lot for about 25 minutes. My first impression walking in from the cold was that of being welcome – there was the smell of essential oils in the air, people greeting each other, smiling. A good start!  Introductions also helped assuage some nervousness, every single person seemed… Read More


yoga west island ashtanga mysore best yoga teacher training

Contrary to popular belief the Mysore Yoga classes are not exclusively for double-jointed, contortionist yogis that know the Ashtanga Primary Series by heart.  And guess what… mysore classes are not designed to make you sore.   Phew, now that I got that off my plate… Allow me to demystify the mystery of Mysore and explain to you why you should give it a try. Mysore yoga is a class taught in the traditional teaching style of Ashtanga yoga.  Rather than a led class with the teacher cueing the poses at the… Read More

Be Bold.  Be Brave.  Be Beautiful.  How do you feel when you hear these words?  Some people think… Hell yeah!  Damn right… Other’s may cower at this statement thinking something like… Hmmmm.  Not quite there yet.  Oh please…  Let me just hide in this crowd. To Be Bold, Brave and Beautiful, is a practice.  It takes being and feeling good in your own skin.  Bold enough to be try something new and to believe in yourself enough, to let your beauty shine out…  It’s not easy.  It’s flipping scary.  But if… Read More


720 X 400 Kids winter session 2017 (1)

This morning as I backed out of my driveway, I hit the car that was parked right behind me.  No big damage.  But, it was the third time that I hit a car parked there in the past 6 months.  Sure, it’s not a smart place to park!  But, hello… I should be going slower.  And of course, I should be paying more attention to what the heck I am doing.  While I actually LOOK  into the rearview mirror, I do not actually SEE anything. I see it all the time in class. … Read More
