Yoga from the heart in the sunny Okanagan
I am blessed to teach yoga in Kelowna and around the Okanagan, the heart of desert wine country in southern British Columbia. We have a vibrant and active yoga community, one that I am very proud to be a part of!
Here's what I've been up to lately.
‘Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness ~~~ and just be happy.’ Quality time with Monkey the Cat and @sandhillwines and the little blue paper mache ball (can you see it?). I finally gave up and decided to decorate the tree to match. 💙🦋💙 . . . #monkeythecat #littleblueballbyjade #holidayhome #okanaganliving #hyggenorth #happy
Seriously. No filter. I’m still in awe. After a long day at work, I walked out of KGH (after grumping with my colleagues about how dark it was already), up to the parkade’s top floor where my car was parked. I stepped out the door and looked up and... THIS. I just stopped. Everything stopped. How can something be this beautiful? It just takes your breath away. Dear Okanagan, you have my heart forever. . . #grateful #okanagansunset #allheartnofilter #skyonfire #kelownanow #home
Sisters. 💛 Together we pour our whole hearts into our @okanaganyogaretreats And now we have hundreds of ‘sisters’ all across Canada! Join us in 2019. Registration opened last Saturday, it was a great first weekend. Our retreats sell out fast. We only have 5 spots left in our June retreat at @predatorridge . Sign up early 😘.

An emotional day yesterday as I closed an epic, beautiful chapter in my life. And in her extraordinary way, yesterday afternoon, Mother Nature gifted me with this epic, beautiful sign that indeed, I’d made the right choice. I will treasure the memories made, and my @oranjkelowna family forever. It was a glorious adventure. But it is time to start a new chapter. I don’t presume to know what will be written in this one. Right now, the page is blank. If you’ve learned anything from me, I hope it is this: *Never settle *Don’t put up with bullshit *Be kind *Kick ass in all you do *And ... EVERY morning, may we Rise & Shine baby!!! . 🍊🧡🍊🧡 . . . PS - I’m not retiring from teaching yoga - some chapters are still very much in progress: leading @okanaganyogaretreats, my work with the mental health community & @litfromwithinproject. AND I’m open to a new home studio in the future 💛
Well we may have gotten a little ripped off of summer but this fall is making up for it. #spectacular #okanagan

Making space... for pumpkin 🥧 pie!!! 😉 Sweaty flows with @klanouette are always a good way to start the Thanksgiving weekend. Much to be grateful for, including the friendships that continue to bring us joy and laughter. 💛
Peace out NYC. Love ❤️

44 is great. Stop freaking out about getting older. Eat good, nourishing, non GM food. Drink lots of water. Drink a ‘moderate’ amount of wine. Nap. Exercise. Headstand. Be in nature. Hug people. Cry if you feel like it. Cut toxic people out of your life (kindly). Buy the shoes. Eat the cheesecake. Keep smiling (fuck the wrinkles). And be grateful that you have the blessing of getting older. The first 14 of the #44mantras I will live by this year.
When you have that one brother in law who just wants to mess with your Virgo-ness... 😤
