ahh...remembering my doula days :)

Great little video

Hope you got to get outside and enjoy some nature! Lucky for us it's everywhere...

This weekend was the annual Brain Tumour Foundations Spring Sprint and it was a HUGE success! Thankfully the weather cooperated s well (For more info on this marvelous organization click here). The event was held once again at such a lovely spot. Burnaby Lake Park (Click here for a map). Each time I go there I vow to return more than once a year. If you love nature, photography, the outdoors, bird watching (it's a wildlife reserve), or going for a nice stroll or a run, you really must go. I know we are blessed beyond belief with the ocean, seawall and stanley park on our doorsteps right downtown but Burnaby Lake Park is sooo worth a visit. And its a 15 minute drive. I took countless pics. Here are some. You can click on any to enlarge. Namaste.

More reasons to get off our chairs and onto our mats.

We know what sitting does to our hips and back (and in turn our knees, neck, shoulders and mood) but the rest of it is pretty scary too! I know personally speaking that I have never sat as much in my life as I have the past few years (and as much as I hate to admit it it is getting worse with each year that passes)!
And our lovely weather doesn't help either at times sigh..

Well, thank goodness for yoga. It undoes all the damage caused by sitting. Bottom line is? Just move. Interrupt the sitting as often as you can.

See you at yoga and we'll chase the sitting blues away together

Sometimes somebody just brightens your day for no reason...

Sometimes somebody just honour's you "just because" when you are least expecting it. Making others feel special is such a special gift. I feel I am so very blessed every day of my life for the lovely friends/colleagues/ students and peers who I am blessed to share my life with. You are all my teachers. Thanks so much Amanda. You really made my day.

Like roadtrips?

My partner Silas and I went on a wonderful "too beautiful for words" adventure last weekend called The Spring Thaw. 60 cars. All different people from different walks of life coming together for an amazing adventure. If you like roadtrips, wind in your hair, good people from all over, super scenery and twistie roads...this trip is something that is so fun and exciting that none of us ever want it to end. This year we went from Squamish to 108 Mile House to Sunpeaks to Hope. Can't wait til next year!
