  • Day 2 This was me… 6 years ago. I took an aerial yoga workshop. I was so excited! I have always wanted to do this!! I was greeted by a gorgeous, very thin twenty something who was too absorbed by her iPad to greet me or make me feel welcome. I was easily 15 pound heavier and 15 years older than every student in the room. It was horrifying to me and my body felt that warm rush of shame. I stayed through the workshop, my palms sweating and my limbs feeling barely able to hold my weight, but I never went back. I regret that I allowed my own shame, and need to compare and to judge myself limit me. I am ...
  • Happy New Year! Did you see the evening sky illuminated with the brilliant moon last night? Did you take a moment to look at it? A full moon represents a fresh start and I encourage you to reflect, recharge, and reassess where you find yourself. The full moon of January, known as the Hunger Moon offers a particularly advantageous opportunity to reset. This isn’t just a chance to just prepare for a new month — this is your chance to reflect upon the new year. Rather than challenging yourself to change dramatically, consider where you wished to improve last year, but never had the time or energy to. This is why the full moon is referred to as the Hunger Moon — ask yourself what you ...
  • Day One Wow! It is hard to be this personal. Already, I feel vulnerable and wanting to pull the plug on this. I have so much fear…what if I can’t do this? What if I am not strong enough? I have so much body shame. I don’t look like a supermodel. I have breastfed 3 children. I have a c-section scar. I have varicose veins. Tears run down my face as I write this. Strength comes from facing your fears, so I share with you unflinchingly. Let’s begin. I have lost 15.5 pounds since the end of August. I have done it with the support of the Noom app. I log every calorie I eat and exercise I do. I have 4.5 pounds more ...
  • This week’s schedule and musings….. Patanjuli’s Sutra II:38 Upon being established in brahmacharya (moderation), there is the attainment of vital energy.   Why am I sharing this with you the day after Christmas when moderation is so far from our experience? Well, it is to remind you that we need to observe moderation in all things, even moderation. I had a lovely, snowed in, Julia Childs sort of Christmas. Boozy. Excessive. Joyful. Fun. Today is the opposite, but equally excessive. Excessive napping. Carb loading. Rehydrating. lol And you know what? I am ok with this. I exercise and eat from a place of consciousness most of the time. I limit caffeine, alcohol and processed foods. I make as much of my food from scratch as I can (and ...
  • Invincible! Albert Camus wrote: “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all, that… In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” I wsh for you to feel invincible. I hope that your practice supports you in this and that I have helped to facilitate this knowing. I wish for you this gift at Solstice. Take a moment ...
  • December 11-17 Schedule We are now firmly entrenched in holiday going ons. I invite you to check in daily with yourself to assess where you are carrying tension and what the source may be. As we practice transforming our perspective on the mat, also practice off the mat! “Busy” is a state of mind. Why can’t life, instead, be simply “full”? Right now. Deepen the breath. Stretch your body. Allow yourself to embrace whatever the world is offering you.   This week’s schedule is as follows: Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am Bow Lake Grange Hall M/W 6pm Fri 9am Please note that this Monday evening’s class will be lead by our fellow yogi, Lois.

  • Thanks Giving It is not joy that makes us GRATEFUL, It is gratitude that makes us JOYFUL. That is the truth!

  • Holiday Warrior! It’s your last full week before Thanksgiving. How are you? Calm and collected? Frazzled and overwhelmed? However you find yourself, you can shift perspective this week to feel into gratitude and presence. How? Begin by committing to self-care. Schedule your yoga classes in your calendar and get there. Use these classes as time to reflect upon being mindful, grateful, and grace-full. Get to bed a little earlier. Wake up each morning and take a minute to meditate on how you want to feel and what you are going to do in the day to feel that way. You can always schedule a yoga therapy session if you need additional support. lanta@nourish.works You can also find me at: Peace Tree Yoga M/W 9am Bow Lake ...
