Happy November Yoga family!
Yoga has come a long way in our community and I am honoured to be a part of the process to bring this beautiful teaching to our region. I have been blessed to be able to teach yoga in the schools to both the students and the faculty. I think it is so important for children to learn how to self regulate and for everyone to learn how to become mindful citizens.
I also believe that yoga should be inclusive of everyone. All shapes, sizes and ages. If you have a body, you have a yoga body. Which is why I am thrilled to be teaching another beginner course and introduce more people to the practice of stepping into your own power through yoga.
While this course is now full I will be offering another one in the new year so if you or someone you know missed out keep checking for the next registration.
We are coming up to a busy time of year but its also a time of year when we have an opportunity to give back to our community and do something good for those less fortunate in our area. We will be offering our community yoga classes which are free by donation. We will take non-perishable food items, new individually wrapped health and care products (ie. Toothpaste, deodorant, etc), any new or gently used pieces of warm clothing and also any spare change. It’s important that we take care of ourselves so that we can take care of others.
We are also giving away some beautiful Lulu Lemon Yoga mats that are monogramed with ‘Lake of the Woods’. They are thicker for your comfort and made from natural rubber. There are four of these mats, which we will be giving away from now until Christmas. To win the first one simply come to a class and enter a ballot. We are drawing for the first one November 30th!
