Exciting Announcement: We’re Moving to Newfoundland!

Big things are on the horizon. We’re planning something really, really huge and I can’t wait to start talking more about it. I was born and raised in Toronto, trying to escape in various ways throughout my life either through travel, love or family. This city has shaped me. I’ve found so many colourful kindred…

Being Kind: When You’re Trying Not to Drink

Being kind should come easy, so I thought. Especially when I quit drinking. Surprise! My bleeding heart is not so passionately caring as I assumed it was. People piss me off. I piss me off. Especially when feeling all of the things so very, very much. I’m used to tapping out, tuning off. And yes,…

Extra-Deep Hip Work

Join me (and a very playful Cosmo) on this 35-minute sequence. We’ll get nice and deep into the hips – one of the most important joints in the body and one of the first to give out on us as we age.

We’ll start off with some gentle spinal and shoulder warm-ups and then get into some deeper stretches and seated twists. We will end off on the ground in some juicy, deep hip and lower back work.

Vinyasa style yoga and sequences don’t need to be a heart-pounding workout, they don’t always have to look the same. The Sanskrit word ‘vinyasa’ can be translated to ‘sequence’, or “to place in a special way.”…

We all need a self-care overhaul sometimes.

We are not living in the calmest of times. There is disruption and there needs to be, because the current direction we’re going as a species needs an overhaul. Nothing is certain and I think we’re all quickly realizing that nothing ever was. People are on edge, shit’s getting real, and right now more than ever we need to be kind to ourselves and to others.

On the title “Yoga Teacher”

Honestly, the title “yoga teacher” is starting to feel weird for me. After over 350 hours dedicated to learning yoga, I might scrap it. I could spend lifetimes and only begin to understand the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, how can I ever claim to be a teacher? I hardly understand my own convoluted French/English settler…

This yoga teacher is hopping off the MLM (Multi-level Marketing) bandwagon.

In the midst of the 3 months we spent under lock down in Toronto last Spring, I had been trying to build this very website. I was knee-deep in marketing research, in a cloud of self-defeat, overwhelm and agitation. But, I was determined to get something up and running, just in case, say, my regular…

We don’t spend much time standing, and get into some relaxing supine twists and seated forward folds. We finish off with some pilates-inspired hip, thigh and glute…
