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…

Collective Liberation

I know a lot of people are thinking: everyone is so sensitive, this “cancel” culture is getting out of control. You know what’s out of control? Patriarchal bullshit. Racism. Sexism. The system is wacked and we have ALL been numbed into thinking that our actions don’t have consequences. Every action that you make, every little decision, how you treat someone, what you buy and where you buy it from has an impact.

Sober Curious

Becoming sober is not a one-size-fits-all approach, and to be perfectly blunt. I don’t think that AA and the Twelve Steps are conducive to healing, not for people who don’t claim the gender identity of male. That’s for damn sure. It’s a program created by men, for men, and it’s built around a culture of shame. You are the one that is broken, if you don’t follow the program, that’s on you. You are the person that needs to reach out to everyone around you and tell them how sorry you are for being a fuck up. Oh and also, you better remember that if you slip up even once, you’ll probably be a toothless hag in the streets with a bottle of rubbing alcohol up your sleeve.
