Week 2 – The Practice

By |January 15th, 2021|

So, that morning I had something different for breakfast, I put on something I haven’t worn in years and I went for my first run in a very long time. Later on also said no to something, I stood up for something else, and signed up for something new. I also took time that evening to clean and purge a closet, reorganize a drawer, rearrange a room and reaffirm the importance and purpose behind my journaling and meditation practices. 

African Peanut Soup

By |January 10th, 2021|

Here in Nova Scotia, the weather often changes by the minute. One moment it's bright and sunny, the next heavy cloud cover and rain, sleet or snow. This deliciously warming and satisfying soup is a perfect balance for helping regulate Vata & Kapha dosha.  

Week 1 – The Practice

By |January 8th, 2021|

Even before the new year rang in, I started to ask myself questions about my personal health and wellness practices; What do I need? What is getting in my way? What, where and how do I need to help my body, mind and heart feel healthier, stronger and like my old self, only better?

Sadhana – The Practice

And just like that, 365 days have come and gone. The proverbial ‘goose’ has been cooked, a fresh new calendar spine is cracked, and I am so ready for a realignment on my personal health and wellness practices.

re-RE-opening

By |December 16th, 2020|

Well, holy sweet mustard pickles. We are able to re-RE-open on Monday, December 21st. YAY! I did not see that coming and through for sure we'd be closed until after the new year.

Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies

By |December 6th, 2020|

I am no baker by any stretch but I do love to try new recipes every so often. Having made gluten free Ginger Snaps in the past, this year my son and I want to make our own Homemade Gingerbread Houses for Christmas so I needed to find a new recipe that could 'stand up' for to the construction phase.

Virtual Reality

By |November 26th, 2020|

The social media world is a very real virtual reality that we are somewhat forced into cohabiting with. I say somewhat forced because really no one is forcing me, or us, to scroll, click, comment and share. But as human beings, whom from the dawn of time have sought out ways to find others, to create community and to live collectively with other humans, being and staying connected to those who hold our sacred selves in their hearts is vital to our health and wellbeing.

Mantras & Melodies

By |August 17th, 2020|

I got the change to ask KD for some advice on how I go about leading a Kirtan. His response, "Start where you are." Simple as that. So here I am, stepping into new, yet in some ways familiar territory. There are a few simple recordings of some of the mantras I have learned and regularly practice with. I hope you enjoy them as much as I love to sing the melodies.

Our Response to COVID-19

Community is Everything

It’s been over 2 months since the studio temporarily stopped offering regular classes. I’m not sure where the days have gone, but they are gone! As I chatted with a dear friend earlier this week about the whole global

Introduction to Ayurveda

By |May 8th, 2019|

The foundation of Ayurveda is the simple principle that we (our body/mind continuum) is a microcosm of the macrocosm. To simplify, the entire universe is composed of five elements, or in Sanskrit terminology, pancha mahabhutas, and so too is our body. Earth, water, fire, air and space/ether are the elements from which all things are comprised.
