I was so honoured to receive this recent email from a student in my Spring 2015 Mindfulness class:
Hello and Good day,
Hi Michelle how are you? I hope all is well. I was a part of your mindfulness class with my two sisters, and brother in law. We all loved your class, so we thank you again! I would like to personally say thank you and to let you know how much I appreciated your class, where it played a major role in where I was with my life at the time, reason we all signed up together. I was going through a severe depression and my sisters did not know what they could do to help. I was nervous and scared but together we came to you. Some of the classes were a challenge but it was worth it. Now I am at my best. I feel myself again. My path and my journey have continued on in a better way. I now live abroad, looking for a new leaf …
Once again thank you,
I was away on a 3 week
journey to India,
with my meditation teacher…
I returned on November 17, 2015.
I was so grateful for such an opportunity. So much was presented to me, and compassionately learned with and open heart and mind. I am excited to share, with you, all that I have taken in.
Also, please view the website for upcoming events.

Mindfulness, based on MBSR teachings and Eastern based practices
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and to endure what cannot be cured.”
Yoga means “union”, and the word “Hatha” can be broken into two parts: “Ha”, meaning “sun”, and “tha” meaning “moon”. With this we can see that Hatha Yoga balances itself with the pairs of opposites.
Hatha Yoga is the union that achieves balance between the mind (Pranayama) and the body (Asana). It is the most popular yoga most people are aware of. This is the yoga that is the base of many other styles such as Ashtanga, Restorative, and Kundalini Yoga.
The benefits of a regular yoga practice incorporates progress with mental wellbeing, as well as physical relief, and strength.
These improvements include, but are not limited to:
- Increasing flexibility
- Lubrication of the joints and ligaments
- Massages organs in the body
- Detoxification of the body
- Toning of the muscles
- Become more relaxed and cope with stressful parts of your life.
Yoga connects the breath to the movement with your body.
