Over the years, my studies and work have taken me from Edmonton, Alberta to Halifax, Nova Scotia to Calgary to Mayerthorpe, Barrhead and Grande Prairie, Alberta to Kitchener, Ontario and to Medicine Hat, Alberta. I have seen a great deal of this beautiful country and lived and practiced in both metropolitan and rural areas.  Calgary’s population – as of last count – is approaching one million at 988,195 while Mayerthorpe occupies the other end of the spectrum at 1,398.

Yoga School week 1

I made it!  A weekend, a full week, and another weekend kicks off my first official week of yoga school.  I have read more in the last week than in the previous five years!  I say that as a good thing, though!  I love the reading of methodology, asana (postures), philosophy, psychology and ethics.  My favorite class so far might be Ayurveda.

MELT Length and Strength

One-on-one is easy, and I had done that long enough. There are a few MELT Strength moves which I had interspersed into my regular class, and then there were those very few occasions when the number of participants was not too great, and they were all pro-MELTers so that I could introduce the greater challenges of MELT Strength.
