  • Why Some People Shouldn’t Eat Spinach! (like me!)

      Eat a rainbow!  Go green!  Isn’t that how to stay healthy? Yes…. and you need to figure out what is right for you.

  • Stoking the Fire of Transformation: The Synergy of Tapas, Svadhyaya, and Isvara-Pranidhana

    When I was a young child, the home my family and I lived in was heated with a big, cast iron, coal furnace in the basement. There were 4 rooms in the house, each connected with a duct from the furnace. We lived in central Alberta, so the winters were very cold. Each early, dark morning in the winter my Dad would go down stairs and “shake the furnace”. As a young child I just accepted this at face ...

  • Food Blog – Ayurvedic Lens

    Something that has fascinated me for a long time is what people eat. I remember being eleven years old and proclaiming to my mom that I wanted to be a vegetarian. I also remember re-introducing meat into my diet after an illness and how much energy I got from that one Costco chicken wing… I have “changed my diet” more than once, always in an effort to improve my health, my energy, my immunity, or ...

    No one ever tells us to stop running from fear. We are very rarely told to move closer, to just be there, to become familiar with fear  – Pema Chodron. When Things Fall Apart.   A few years ago, I had a fast paced and demanding job in Toronto. I began to feel pain in my upper right abdomen that was eventually diagnosed as an ulcer. When fear, often disguised as stress, races through the body, the ...

  • Mindfulness-Based Intuition

      Do you ever feel lost? If you’re a human, I’ll bet the answer is YES. We all feel lost sometimes. In fact, the times when I have felt more secure in my path followed a period of feeling lost. Feeling lost is a great opportunity because it puts us in touch with our internal compass. Within you, there is something that already knows your magnetic north. Do you ever feel like life is trying to tell...

  • Bringing yoga off the mat

    Over the years I have discovered that yoga is more than just a physical practice, for me anyway. As I maneuver my way around my community, as I work through my days as Youth Worker, or as I interact with my children, I am constantly looking for ways to bring yoga into my every day. And this is what it looks like: making sure that I pass a smile along as I go about my daily business. ensuring that ...

  • Change: willing or willful?

    When I created my 2017 New Year’s Vision and resolutions, I was carving out the intention to change. But I realized that I don’t always know what I can change and what I can’t. The Serenity Prayer reminds me of the difference: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change The courage to change the things I can And the wisdom to know the difference. So, here’s the truth about what...

  • Intention Setting

    I’ve been meaning to write about this for a long time, and as I sat down to write this blog, I got stumped. Interestingly, I’ve been working consistently with the practice of intention setting for years – it’s part of my daily practice. I sit down to write about it and . When I get stumped, I seek clarity. So I decided to look up the word intention in the dictionary to get us started J Intention (...

  • An Introduction to Kundalini Yoga

    Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is a unique and distinctive style of yoga, which differs in many ways from most forms of modern yoga. Kundalini Yoga offers unique ways of practicing, involving breath work, dynamic postures, chanting and meditation. Kundalini Yoga teachers wear white clothes and often wear head coverings while they teach. We almost always play uplifting mantra based music...

  • Agni

      Agni, or inner fire, is a key concept in the Ayurvedic teachings. Agni is a representation of the fire element in the body-mind. It describes the biological fire, or heat energy that governs metabolism, and it is often referred to as the digestiver fire. Our agni digests our food, sensory impressions, emotions, thoughts, ideas and experiences. Without agni, we are unable to use what we take into...

  • What is stress and what can we do about it?

    Stress is primarily about our “fight or flight” reaction to real or perceived threats. When our ancestors were being chased by lions in Africa, the same things happened to them that happens to us when we’re feeling stressed: hearts pound, breathing escalates, eyes dilate and digestive systems shut down. During acute stress, the brain releases an amazing mixture of hormones and chemicals including ...

  • The Art of Letting Go

    Everything changes.  Everything arises, exists for a time, and then dissolves.  Sometimes we’re grateful for this and other times we resist.  Resistance to change creates suffering. As we grow older, each aging signal is a pointer to how to let go of life.  The ability to accept these changes is a skill, or art form, developed through consistent practice. Consistent practice keeps our body, mind, ...

  • Western Fall (Vata) Season

      The western fall season is characterized by an increase in the following vata (air element based) qualities: It becomes more cold, mobile (think windy, moving, changing, erratic), dry, rough, light (as in the opposite of heavy), subtle, and clear.   In Ayurveda, the way we cultivate balance is by applying the opposite to an aggravated quality. So if someone is hot, we cool them down. If someone ...

  • A brand new start

    As we move in to the fall, I find I always view this time of year as a time of growth, of great change. Perhaps, because I am a parent to young ones or perhaps because I work in education, I see the way children start September off with great pride as they boldly head into the next grade. They are bigger and wiser, and I guess that makes us bigger and wiser too. Or not. As I reflect on my hopes an...
