As our one year anniversary approaches, I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for being a part of this journey. Over this last year, my vision has been to learn the importance of taking the time to invest in yourself and to build a studio based on trust and acceptance.
Hearing your stories and sharing this experience has truly been a blessing and the reason I created Beyond. Thank you for letting us into your lives and for being a part of such a wonderful community.

Good Karma & Our Community Partners
Thank you for your generous support during the holiday season...
We raised over $500.00 for Chrysalis House and 
The Kanata Food Cupboard!

Due to the generosity of the Beyond community at our Holiday Karma classes, over $500.00 was raised to support our community charities - Chrysalis House and The Kanata Food Cupboard. In addition to the cash donations, you opened your hearts to provide groceries for The Kanata Food Cupboard and clothing and gifts for the women and their families living at Chrysalis House. Thank you for making a difference for so many families in need!

A formal presentation of the funds raised from Karma initiatives throughout this past year will be made to Chrysalis House and The Kanata Food Cupboard at 11:00 a.m. on January 23rd at the 1st Anniversary Celebration. Please join us!

A Message from Chrysalis House...
Happy New Year!  As we at Chrysalis House begin a new year we want to take a moment to thank Beyond Yoga and all their wonderful patrons for the generosity we have experienced throughout the year.  Beyond Yoga has supported Chrysalis House in a number of ways this year including:
  • Chrysalis House residents have been able to attend yoga classes free of charge
  • Donations of gently used yoga clothing have enabled residents to do so in appropriate clothing
  • Chrysalis House staff were welcomed for a work meeting in a wonderful, restorative space at Beyond Yoga
  • Christmas gift cards and wellness items were provided to the house in order to help us ensure that women (and their children) each received a basket of gifts for the holiday season  Read more >

Beyond the Mat...Fun Facts for the Inquiring Yogi
Centering - A perfect time to check-in
with Carole Houde

I work in an "Oasis" of de-stress right?  Well just like many of you, I sometimes rush to yoga from a hectic day. I really appreciate the process of coming to the mat, sitting comfortably and providing a separation from the rest of the day. Because we all have these experiences, as teachers, we lead you through centering to give everyone in class the opportunity to get into a yoga mindset, check in with our bodies and quiet our minds.

Wellness Tips with Therapeutic Effects
Winter Walking 
The snow and ice have finally arrived and have you noticed that you walk a little differently? Our Canadian winters alter our gait (the way we walk) because of the uneven slippery terrain. As a result, our joints, ligaments and muscles in our feet are affected by this change.   Read more >

Yours in health,
