Happy Day 54

  Today is the 54th day of the year. I feel festive. After all, 54 is half of 108, a most auspicious number. Plus, it’s mid February and I’ll celebrate anything that helps me embrace this long, cold month in Montreal. As mentioned in my previous posting, I feel ready to embark on a new […]

Day 54/365…

Sorry I’ve been slacking on the blog front. I’ve been very involved in teaching and course development at my Om West Studio. I’m working on some cool stuff.  Nevertheless, yesterday, I had a thought. Wednesday is the 54th day of the year… So, I’m thinking, how about 54 sun sals for 54 days this year?  […]

Brrrr it’s cold out there!

I’m back in Montreal. Quel différence en température! Quite the shock going from +30 to -30 degrees Celsius within 24 hours! We arrived on the coldest day of the year, which I believe was -42 with wind chill. It seemed like the minute we landed, my skin dried up, my lips became chapped, and everything […]

Buddha Breath – video

It’s been a while since I posted a video, so we’ll see it works… This one features the simplest yoga practice in the world: Buddha Breathing on the couch! I’ve been doing a lot of this lately and for the first time yesterday, I noticed a big difference in ability to breathe into my diaphragm. […]

Beaches, Palm Trees & Deep Reflection

We have escaped the Canadian winter in favour of a couple of weeks in the Caribbean.  We’ve been in Sint Maarten for just over a week and I’m finally settled in. It takes me a while to get into vacation mode, so I’m grateful that this time we are able to be away for more […]

Happy New Year! I know I’ve been a little lax on my blogging lately and I apologize for that.  There was a lot of studio related craziness before the holidays and Christmas was nuts, as it usually is. I imagine you are recovering from a wonderful evening of toasting and carousing. How did you bring […]

Nude & vegetarian!

My dad’s reaction on my voicemail this morning was pretty funny:  “Hello, daughter.  It’s around 8 in the morning and I’m sitting reading the Gazette and low and behold, I turn the page and there’s my naked daughter right in this big, big picture with an article written about her. My goodness, gracious!” Yes, there […]

World AIDS Day

Today is December 1st, World AIDS Day. It’s the official end of my Stephen Lewis Foundation fundraising campaign and I’m thrilled to announce that WE DID IT!!! Since the start of the Guinness World Record challenge in August, just over $10,800 was collected for SLF! (I can now admit I was a bit worried that […]
