As we begin to turn our attention toward Fall…
A Shift in Season
A Shift in Routine
10 years ago we expanded Yoga By The Sea to include both Sun and Moon Yoga Studios. This expansion was a commitment to a personal life of a Yogi, and a mother – the same thing really! I wanted to stay home with my son and be available before and after school; to attend field trips and soccer games; to be flexible, create a peaceful loving environment and have the energy to be a present parent.
Some days were better than others, and that’s why it’s a practice or Sadhana; you keep coming back to the teachings again and again. You as the community have supported this by supporting the Yoga Studio and Yoga Family! It takes a village to raise a Yogi, and a Mother. 🙂
On Saturday, my beloved son leaves our Sunshine Coast nest and will land in Victoria to attend UVIC as a first year student. I am incredibly proud of him! My heart is so full and filled with deep gratitude for being held by all of you as we navigated this journey this past decade, whether you knew it or not. I know it!
We all know it here at Yoga by the Sea, as you have made a difference in our lives, our families, the next generation and our community. Eternally Grateful!
We have a wonderful Schedule lineup for this Fall, including our Open House Week from Sept. 7 to Sept. 15, and exciting workshops planned.
We look forward to seeing you again in this new season 🙂

My favourite space on the calendar is the 21st December through January 1st.
Even though there is busyness and activity with family and friends, I love the connection to light and the dark. The calling of hibernation, and the calling to light. Continue reading
Our Divine Discovery… A Himalayan Journey with Padma and Hasu
Two weeks in India felt timeless. So many impressions and so many joy-filed moments.
Picking one image to reveal the depth of what was revealed and what is still soaking …well it can be months, a year, or maybe even longer. Continue reading
What’s wrong with this?
Nothing, until you THINK about it.
Then all the reasons not to be content and satisfied with what is, emerge. Continue reading
Forgiveness is not on the other to ask for.
Our reaction is up to us to dismantle.
Not for someone else to change to fit our expectations, likes or preferences. Continue reading
It does seem there is a quickening going on…
Light is brightly returning,
The birds suddenly have begun to sing their spring song, and even frogs are in the choir.
Hindu Deities are external manifestations of the ancient Yogic teachings. They represent qualities that are present in each of us, and remind us of the essence of our true nature. Continue reading
