Free Pregnancy massage at Utopia Academy again! Yippie!

Hi there beautiful ones!!
(expectant momma's 2nd trimester and up in particular, for this post!)

I just now realized that with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and schedule changes and what not I have neglected to mention in my classes that the oh-so-lovely Annette Ruitenbeek (Associate Dean of Education of Utopia Academy) has contacted me to let me know that the time for free pregnancy massage is fast approaching once again...and this time and they have space for 20 women! Yippie!

The date is Thursday January 14th 2010. (boy, that feels strange typing 2010....)
And they have two shifts: 1:00pm & again at 3:00pm!

If you have been coming to my Prenatal Yoga classes you are no doubt aware of how quickly these spots get snatched up once I put the word out!

So....get on it!
You deserve it, and it's free!

Utopia Academy trains students to qualify for the College of Massage Therapists of B.C.’s registration exams. They are studying to be RMT's.

The school is located at 220-181 Keefer Place. *To set up an appointment you must email Annette at:

Classes starting up at Lilli'Q Cafe and Playhouse!!

I am thrilled to be starting up some classes at Lilli'Q Cafe and Playhouse come January! Lilli'Q is located at 1268 Pacific Blvd and is right next door to the Roundhouse, so it really couldn't be more perfect.

And talk about a lovely place!
I couldn't ask for a more amazing spot to continue our Tuesday night Prenatal and Mixed levels Hatha Yoga classes during the Roundhouse Olympic closures. (The Roundhouse will be closed 6-8 weeks during the Olympics)

I highly recommend registering for these classes as space is limited to 12 participants.
*And you must bring your own mats to these classes*

Lilli'Q officially opens to the public this Friday (December 4) and Yaletown will really benefit from this establishment. You will definitely want to check out all that Lilli'Q has going on (even if you don't live in Yaletown!)

Here is a link to their website:

(Registration for these classes can be done through it as well)

I'm still working on securing a location for my Roundhouse Baby & Me Yoga classes. I will make a post here on this blog as soon as that information becomes available! (There's still plenty of time & I am confident that everything will fall into place, as it always does!)

Lot's of news this fine December!

Here is the new Mt.Pleasant !

We're still waiting for the ok from the building people but are expecting it any day now as everything is all moved in and ready to go!

This place will be worth the wait, thats for sure ;)

Keep checking this blog for updates as I will post news on here the second I receive word!

Opening of the new Mt.Pleasant has been delayed

Hi folks!

Sadly the opening of the new Mt.Pleasant (Main at Kingsway) has been delayed. :(

It's a bummer, but what are ya gonna do? The opening dates are to be announced, but I am sure it will be very soon.
In the meanwhile all my classes are a go at the Roundhouse, and if you live in the Mt.Pleasant area the Canada Line has door to door service from Broadway & Cambie St. to the Roundhouse (as much of a pain that canada line was in the making I sure do love it!)

I have actually timed myself from there and it takes a total of 4 minutes.
Thats an option anyways.

If you have any other questions for me, or are interested in private yoga sessions. (one on one, group- whatever!)
You can always email me at

Hope to see you soon :)

My schedule is updated, so click on the link (under labels) on the right hand side. Let's enjoy some Yoga together! Classes for everybody ;)

Happy Halloween!

What a gorgeous fall we are having! Whew!
I can hardly believe it.

Lot's of new stuff going on Yoga wise for me...

I'm still reeling from that fabulous Yoga Pilates Conference I attended earlier in the month. I attended workshops with countless Teachers of all different styles and backgrounds. Some I had practiced with before, and for others it was my very first time with them. Rodney Yee, Sadie Nardini, Maria Garre, Jason Crandell, Margot McKinnon and Martin Kirk are just some of the fabulous Teachers I was able to learn from during those four days. I spent 12 hours a day there and loved every second of it. Can't wait til next year!

First off, the brand spankin' new Mt.Pleasant Community Centre has finally taken shape, and will be opening November 9th! I'll miss the old place, but the new centre promises to be spectacular!

The new Mt.Pleasant is located at #1 Kingsway @7th. (Main and Broadway basically) So it's very easy to get to. Transit everywhere etc.

Just got word that The Roundhouse 'may' be closed from the end of January until March for the Olympics. It is not a done deal yet, and they may still keep some programs running on a drop-in basis. I'll keep ya posted!

I might be looking to rent another Yaletown location when the time comes. (it's still a ways off) Or may just move classes to various students workout rooms/gyms/aerobics rooms in their buildings/condo's etc.

Sooooo....if you wanted Yoga in your building, just contact me and we'll make it happen! This seemed to work out well a couple of years ago during the strike.

So, beautiful ones... That's it for now! Still not great with blogging (as I am sure you can tell!) hahaha..But heck, I am trying!

Hope to see you soon at Yoga. Let's do it up!

*Oh...just one more thing. Take note: Time change (as well as new location) for Mt.Pleasant's Wednesday evening Prenatal Yoga class. The class will be a 6:30pm start beginning Nov 16th.

No more Friday baby & Me Yoga at the Roundhouse for the time being.

Happy Fall! (for yoga schedule please scroll down)

First off, the Friday Baby & Me Yoga class is no more for the time being, but Thursday is still going on and is loads of fun :)

Secondly, I am thrilled to be soon starting up another Prenatal Yoga class very soon at 6th Avenue and Granville. I love the location, and the place is just amazing. Really stunning, and all round super cool. It's a Detox lounge called Splurge Bodyworks Detox Lounge. More details to come, and dates and times TBA. I am really excited!

I am off to the glorious Convention Centre under the sails for the Yoga Pilates Conference, and it promises to be incredible.

All Yoga/Pilates lovers in town should check it out. I'll let you know how it goes. I have signed up for countless workshops the next 4 days.

I am not much of a blogger. (A huge Facebooker haha..) but not the biggest blogger as you can tell. It is mainly out of not really knowing the in's and out's of blogging.

I have decided to give it a whirl very soon though! Learning to blog is next on my agenda.

Have a beautiful weekend! And maybe I'll see you at the Yoga Convention (Oct 2-5) here in Vancouver.

Take Care & Bye for now,
