Family Yoga at Hot Yoga on 20th

Starting October 9th, a family class is going to be offered at Hot Yoga on 20th!

I will teach the class in Hot Yoga's (unheated) studio 2 every Sunday from 10:00-10:45 a.m. It will be a drop-in karma class for children (ages 3-7) with a parent/guardian. We're asking a $5 minimum donation per family, with all proceeds going to a local children's organization each month.
(What does the cow say? MOOOOOO!!!!!)

Little Yogi classes will incorporate books, games, yoga cards and will be very interactive. The focus is always on having fun while learning yoga poses.
(What does the cat say? MEEOOOOWWWW!)

Ladybird Animal Sanctuary 2012 Calendar

Back in July, the Hot Yoga on 20th newsletter had a link to a photo contest for the Ladybird Animal Sanctuary. On the last day before entries were due our family went into the backyard and had some fun with some yoga poses along with Ollie (that dog has the most amazing downward and upward dogs!). We just learned that one of our submissions was selected for the 2012 calendar - whoo hoo!!! Here's the winning photo.

Here are a few others from that day...

Finnegan showing Ollie his downdog.

Both Ollie and Finnegan doing some pretty nice cobras.

My attempt at a bridge.

Tree pose - Ollie wasn't too interested in this one.

Keira's Warrior II

Keira's Star Pose

I'm not sure this one has a name (maybe jelly legs) - good fun whatever you call it!

Check out the full Ladybird Animal Sanctuary calendar when it become available.

What Women Want

Check out the new Momentum Magazine that is online. The one and only time I've managed to get over to the skate park this year (needed to keep my skills honed!!!! ...actually I just had drop into the bowl at least once so I wouldn't lose my nerve) ...

landed me a photo in the September digital edition (check out page 35B).

To the Post Office

Months have passed and I've slacked off on the posting....though I have no end of the photos that have been taken - just haven't made the time to get them on this blog. So enough's enough already! Here are a couple pictures from today.

Here we are heading off to the post office. Long overdue to little Kira in the Northwest Territories!!!

Amazingly warm day again today. I am enjoying these hots days as the snow will be here soon enough.

When we got back home I was feeling kinda zonked and had a rest. I had told Keira I would take her out for a bike ride in just a bit. Tim found her drawing with pen and ink at the table, with as you can see, helmet and gloves on, ready to do at a seconds notice.
