Move well.    Breathe well.    Be well.

Wedding Bells!

I'm getting married this week. Crazy! Life is very full right now, and my emotions are on overdrive. I'm wavering between really excited and really stressed!

The demands of wedding planning have left me a little bit behind when it comes to my teaching plans for the fall. Dates haven't been solidified yet, but as you will see below, there are lots of exciting things in the works!

Enjoy the rest of this lovely summer season.

Much love,

Fall Teaching Adventures!

Here are some of the plans I am working on:
  • I will be offering another Thursday morning session of my 7-week Yoga for Pain Relief course at East Side Yoga Studio.
  • I am looking for a location to run a session of Yoga for Pain Relief on Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
  • I'm continuing to teach Movement Education & Relaxation training at the Change Pain clinic
  • I will be launching a Bridging to Community Yoga Classes program at Change Pain with Krista Friesen
  • I will be launching a follow up course to Yoga for Pain Relief in the late fall
I hope to have the details settled and available on my website soon, and they will for sure be in my September newsletter. Stay tuned! 
Taking Care

Another simple summer self-care tip: spend more time outside. 

According to Harvard Health Publications, the benefits of spending more time outside include:
  • Your Vitamin D levels rise
  • You'll get more exercise (especially true for children)
  • You'll be happier (especially if your exercise is 'green')
  • Your concentration will improve
  • You may heal faster

Writing from My Blog
Nothing new on my blog this month, but I wrote another piece for Saje Natural Wellness called Stories of Sleep & Lavender Oil
Recommended Read
With my upcoming wedding, I wasn't sure I would have time to read a book this month, but when I picked up The Migraine Miracle by Dr. Josh Turknett, I couldn't put it down. If you get headaches of any sort, I highly recommend this book. 
A Reading List
This articled is titled 37 Books Every Creative Person Should Be Reading. I have a love/hate relationship with flashy internet article titles like this one. Ninety percent of the time, the content of the article is a major letdown, but I keep coming back for the valuable ten percent left over. I was expecting this list to be a letdown, but I was pleasantly surprised. Based on the six books I have read from this list, I think these recommendations for books that inspire creativity are pretty solid!
Can Meditation Really Slow Ageing?

There seems to be no end to the fascinating research on the benefits of meditation. This article on meditation, ageing, and stress is a long one, but I recommend taking the time to sit down and read it. It may motivate you to change the way you live your life.

What Dolphin Plank Has To Do With Monogamy
"True freedom doesn’t come from our ability to run away. We earn our freedom through our fortitude to stay put." - Rachel Scott

I have written a number of pieces about how practicing yoga has shifted my understanding of commitment and my experience of freedom. In this post, another Vancouver teacher Rachel Scott shares a comedic, but wise, perspective on the subject. Read: What Dolphin Plank Has To Do With Monogamy
