Online class #4 uploaded to YouTube!

Dear Friends,

It was a beautiful spring today, so we opened the door of the studio to let the sun stream in while taping the class for YouTube. I find nature a comforting constant during this time of uncertainty. I hope you enjoy the glimpse of our sweet little studio in the heart of Ganges, Salt Spring Island. This week I am sharing a sequence with you on my YouTube channel, Yoga in Salt Spring, that I practice regularly. We will transition from sun salutations (Surya Namaskar) to standing poses and back again. A flow. Stay well and I hope this practice brings you joy! I appreciate your feedback. You can always check in to www.YogaInSaltSpring and leave a comment or review the class on YouTube.

Taking precautions

I’d like to share with you the extra precautions we are taking at Yoga in Salt Spring and Hedgerow House B&B while the COVID-19 is still at large.

  • We swab down doors, door handles, surfaces, telephones, and any surfaces that students might touch during their visit for a yoga class.
  • We encourage students to bring their own mat if they have one, and are disinfecting our own mats after each class.
  • We ask everyone to wash their hands in warm water and soap at our B&B before and after the class.
  • We have hand sanitizer available.
  • We ask you to stay away if you have any symptoms of cold, cough or a fever.

I hope that together we can help to ‘flatten out the curve’ to combat this virus.

A reminder of our weekly schedule:
Tuesday 5pm-6:30pm Level II/Intermediate

Thursday: 5pm-6:15pm Beginner/Level I

Saturday, March 28th, 4-6:30pm: Workshop on Immune-Boosting Poses and Breathwork

In each class I will include a segment on immune-boosting poses and pranayama (yogic breathing) to help your body stay healthy.

Stay healthy and continue to practice yoga and pranayama!

The 2019 Season wraps up

It has been my pleasure to teach all of our students at Yoga in Salt Spring this year. Teaching is my learning! We have offered a full schedule of three classes per week from February until the end of October, in addition to a monthly workshop. Each workshop offers students the opportunity to go deeper and explore a particular aspect of yoga, we’ve studied hip-openers and twists, joints and feet. Hedgerow House B&B also hosted five yoga retreats this year, some with visiting Iyengar yoga teachers bringing their own students, and some taught by me and attended by students from as far afield as Holland, Montreal and Los Angeles.

During the winter months Peter and I will be travelling through SE Asia, and volunteeering in Bali. I’ll be teaching yoga and Peter will be working in recycling in a foundation on the north shore of the island. In India I will studying Iyengar yoga in Rishikesh, with Usha Devi and in Goa with Fr Joe Pereira. I look forward to returning to the 2020 season revitalized and ready to share my new learnings.

Wishing you all a nurturing and peaceful winter season, when I hope you have time to deepen your own yoga practice. I am happy to answer questions via email: [email protected]
