Yoga Beyond Words with Cara-Lynne Auld
Got Class?...

There's a saying that the hardest thing about a yoga class is getting there.  I find this particularly true in December and January.  Life is busy, the weather is cold and taking care of ourselves tends to take a back seat.  While there are a lot of great reasons to attend yoga classes, there is one, which while true all year, rings particularly well in the dark winter months.  We need community.

*Not the type of community I mean, but they also survive winter better together.

December is a dark month literally, the days are short, and the lack of sunshine takes its toll on our physical and mental health.  January is a dark month figuratively, it's cold, it's long and the post-holiday blues tend to run rampant for many of us.  Human beings are social beings; ...
Meet Your Instructor

Meet Jenn Leblanc, our new Prenatal Yoga teacher...

What are your passions?
I absolutely LOVE spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, reading, listening to music, doing home renovations, staying fit, eating clean, cooking, baking and making natural body care products.
Why are you looking forward to teaching the upcoming Prenatal Yoga session?
I'm looking forward to teaching the Prenatal Yoga session starting January 18th, because I remember just how special it was to have that opportunity to detach from the days events and tune in to what was happening within my ever-changing body. From flutters, to kicks, to somersaults I loved my pregnancies and the bonding time that prenatal yoga provided. Now is the time to celebrate your pregnancy.
You hosted the very popular Yin & Yum session at Beyond a few weeks ago. Can you share one of your recipes for a healthy treat for the holidays?
Chocolate Dipped Dates
15-20 Medjool or honey dates, pitted
Pecans (whole or halves)
Chocolate Chips (I use Camino 55%)
Melt 1/2 the bag of chocolate chips in a sauce pan on low heat. While chocolate melts open the dates and stuff with a pecan then pinch the date closed. Once you have all the dates stuffed place a few at a time in the sauce pan; using a spatula cover the dates with chocolate (by rolling around) then remove and put on baking sheet with parchment paper. Place in fridge or freezer for approximately 30 minutes to let chocolate set.

Wellness Tips with Therapeutic Effects

Shovelling & Your Low Back

For snow lovers, we have been given a great early Christmas gift with so much snow! Although we have not had a heavy wet snowfall yet we know it will happen at some point this winter. Wet snow is heavier to shovel and lift, and is usually the type of snow that puts our low back out for days and sometimes even weeks. To compliment the rule of 'bend your knees when you lift' engaging in your abdominal core will also support your low back and decrease the chances of muscle spasms or slipped discs. How do you engage your abdominal core? Think of the contraction you make as if you were to do a sit-up. Now try it standing up.

Yours in health, 
Erin, Karen & Carol
