Yoga in Orillia We Love Moms

"Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart."

Dear Students,

A newsy newsletter for you this month. Getting down to business right away. It is summer! The 3 months where we throw caution to the wind and become quite yogic by living in the moment a little more. In the spirit of this attitude we tend to say no to commitment to leave ourselves open to what the summer has to offer. I love it!

And so, I will be putting our regular classes on hold for the months of July and August. I will however, be running a 6 week hatha yoga session beginning in July on Wednesday evenings at the regular time. It is a deal not to be missed. 6 weeks for $70 from July 2 to August 6th. You can register for this session by signing up at your next class or e-mailing Rebecca. Registration closes the last week of June. If you already have a 5/10 or 20 class pass we can put it on hold for the session and you can resume with it in September. Please note that if you do not register for the session and would like to do a drop in or use your pass, you are able to as long as the session is a go.

I am so excited to offer a summer Mom and Baby yoga session beginning this Thursday, June 5th - July 24th. This session will include the option of meeting at my house in between 9 and 9:30am where we will hydrate with some lovely infused waters. Cucumber water, lemon water, watermelon, chia anyone? Then we’ll all walk down to the trail and end up at Couchiching Park for class. As elementary school and many nursery schools are soon coming to an end, I would like to welcome siblings to the group. This will give the class a bit of a different feel. I’ll be very much playing it by ear as to what is needed in class. If all Babes have fallen asleep during the walk, then Mommas, you are in for a work out. If your Babes are awake, we’ll do a normal Mom and Baby class. If we have a few siblings joining us then we might indulge in some kids’ yoga. Get ready to make some animal sounds. If you would like to meet us on the trail or come meet us just for class, then that is great too. I’ll be texting all who register as to when we are leaving for the trail, when we are on the trail and when and where we have settled for class. The class will be held as close to 11am as we can get it. It will depend on the walk, but we’ll aim for that. This session is 8 weeks for $80.

We have begun another prenatal session. This session runs from Tuesday May 20th - Tuesday July 8th. We always welcome Momma’s to-be into the class at any time. It is appropriate for all trimesters.

I hope to see you all over the summer for one of these options. If you are one who disappears to a beautiful lake each weekend then have a fantastic summer and we’ll see you back in September!

You don't need to be a seasoned practicing yogini to reap the benefits of prenatal yoga.

My daughter is 3 years old and already, I find that I need to keep a day planner... for her. In this day and age, our children are trying to find balance between being kids, playing freely, nursery school, ballet, gymnastics, piano, soccer, shopping malls, video games and TV.

The word "hatha" comes from the Sanskrit terms "ha" meaning "sun" and "tha" meaning "moon".
