  • Please note changes for Week of 4/8-4/14 Spring is teasing us this year! Beautiful sunshine and then a snow shower…yet, the greens of my crocus and daffodils are peeking their heads up from the ground. I am reminded to slow down and be open to learning the lessons that are offered to me…Patience. Perseverance. Acceptance. And that is the lesson I need right now as I feel a bit resentful that my classes at the Bow Lake Grange Hall are cancelled this week. So, I am working to accept what I can not change and knowing that next week, we will be back together. In the meantime, you can practice with me at: Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am and I encourage you to take an evening class there this ...
  • Anticipation. My word for today is anticipation. In preparation to cleanse, we do a body scan meditation to tune in and create an intention for ourselves. As I began to follow my breath into my body…being curious about how I felt, about my digestion, elimination, energy level…I became aware that I am feeling anticipation. What a funny thing. Usually, I note that I feel sluggish after the heavy foods of winter or I need to ground as the air changes and blows my attention away from my center, but not this time. This time I feel excited to begin the cleanse and release the heaviness of loss and heartbreak. I feel excited to re-commit myself to this journey and continue to explore ...
  • Schedule Week of 4/1-4/7 Happy Easter! Happy Spring! I am so excited to be diving into this season with mindfulness and intention. There is clearing out to be done and it is the time to refine what you digest or take in in all aspects of your life. What can we weed out out? What can we invite in? You can still sign up for the Spring Cleanse with Ruth and myself at www.peacetreeyoga.com if this is of interest. I will be speaking to this more through out the week at: Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am The Bow Lake Grange Hall M/W 6pm and Fri 9am. **Please note that there will be no classes next week 4/8-4/14 at the Bow Lake Grange Hall as the Lakeside Players are preparing for their Impersonators ...
  • Get to Work! It has been a little over a week since my procedure and I am pleased to say that I am feeling great! It was very cathartic to be healing physically while healing emotionally. It allowed me to tap in to things I may have otherwise avoided and that is always a good thing…even if it feels undesirable at the time. This blog was born out of my desire to learn aerial dance and to chronicle that journey, but it has become so much more. Whenever one begins to express themselves authentically, they are baring a part of themselves to the world. With that in mind, I am unhappy to report that my aerial dance class was really challenging and frustrating this ...
  • Schedule Week of 3/24-3/31 I am so grateful to be able to teach this week. Last Tuesday, I had a minor procedure and  it proved to be more prohibitive than I realized. Thank you for your understanding and patience. This week, I will be teaching at: Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am The Bow Lake Grange Hall M/W 6pm and Fri 9am I look forward to seeing you on the mat! Lanta
  • Take another piece of my heart. Today has been interesting. I had a cyst removed from my sternum this afternoon. I have had it for over a year, but it had started to grow and become inflamed so it needed to go. At the consult appointment, they had told me no aerial dance for a week so I was already feeling resentful as there is a 2 hour class this evening that I would be missing, but they had ok-ed yoga so that was good. The procedure was over quickly and painlessly and I really enjoyed the engaging nurse and doctor. I wasn’t, however. prepared to be told no stretching or lifting (hence no yoga) for 3-5 days, no hot tub for 2 weeks and that it would be ...
  • Radiant. I have been absent on here for awhile. Processing the loss of my father. Experiencing such a sense of being unsettled. I went to Florida to see my brother and his family and that was such a time of healing sprinkled with sunshine, laughter, tears, heart to heart conversation, sarcasm and way too much food…and wine. Oh, and I shouldn’t leave out wading into the 64 degree pool to celebrate being alive. Wowzers!   So. I am back. Ready to continue on my journey of self-expression and aerial/burlesque dance. I have had moments of reconsidering over the past few weeks. As I recognize in myself this pattern of chasing down and begging for love…attention…external validation, I started to wonder if the desire ...
  • Schedule Week of 3/18-3/24 I am returned from Florida, refreshed and at peace. I want to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and kindness as I processed the loss of my father. I am pleased to say that ALL classes are on this week and I am grateful to be returning to my routine. This week, we will be exploring how a meditation practice can nourish us. Join me at: Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am The Bow Lake Community Club (Name change/same location) M/W 6pm and Fri 9am I look forward to seeing you! In love and light, Lanta
  • more thoughts on a grey day… I have been a little quiet on here. Sitting with the heaviness in my heart, knowing my father is in pain and that I am helpless to change that. I have also been having strange dreams as if my subconscious is winding its way though every relationship I have had…beginning at the beginning…with my father. In all the dreams, though the settings change, I am begging to be loved. Chasing the boy. Convincing. Cajoling. Yuck! I hate being reminded of this pattern. I hate thinking this person who doesn’t know her value still exists in me. Reflecting on this, I am not sure how I was able to break free of this when I met Ron. I think he fooled me. ...
  • Week of 3/5-3/11 This week, we are continuing to be aware of the quality of all matter, the gunas. Being mindful about where we find ourselves…feeling sluggish, in balance, or activated. At Peace Tree Yoga, we will be furthering this exploration by visualizing where you’d like to create more momentum in your life supported by the mantra Gobinday Mukanday to remove deep seated psychological blocks. We will also be looking at the 3rd sutra:  “When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.” What prevents you from beginning? What holds you back? Let’s release these patterns and move forward toward the life we want to be living! It’s going to be a fun week! And I will be teaching this Sunday as ...
