My goodness, September went by so fast!  I can't believe it's October already.

We've had great attendance at our Fall classes so far.  We start some more later this month, so be sure to keep watching www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm and register early again.  Your early registration is what's been making our classes such a success, and we thank you for that.

Have a safe, happy, Hallowe'en!

I hope you enjoy our newsletter.  Please let us know if the newsletter does not display properly for you. 

Crescent Lunge Pose (aka Kneeling Lunge)

Benefits: Stretches the hip flexors and quadriceps

1. From a low lunge, drop your back knee (the left knee, in this case) to the mat. If your knee is sensitive, you can place a blanket under your knee or double up your yoga mat for more cushioning.

2. Bring your hands onto your right knee and your right knee directly over your right ankle.

3. Inhale and raise your arms above your head, keeping the arms in line with your ears.

4. Exhale and deepen forward into the lunge, bending the right knee more if possible. In most yoga poses with a bent front knee, you should be careful not to bring your knee in front of your ankle since that is a vulnerable position for the knee. Anjaneyasana is an exception because the body's weight is being supported by having the back knee on the floor.

5. You may take the spine into a back bend if that feels comfortable.

6. Inhale to bring the front knee back over the ankle.

7. Repeat on the left side.

By Lisa Miriam Cherry

“We’re going to do the Hula,” 95-year-old Ida Herbert shouts out to the packed yoga class at Breathe Yoga Studio in Toronto’s Junction area. “Let it go, girls!”

Dressed in black tights and a navy leotard, Herbert swirls an imaginary hoop around her tiny 4’10” frame. The 50 female clients, aged from 30 to 70, follow her lead.  To continue reading, click here.


What is Pilates?

It seems like everyone is either doing Pilates, or interested in starting a Pilates exercise program. Indeed, one of the best things about the Pilates method is that it works so well for a wide range of people. Athletes and dancers love it, as do seniors, women rebounding from pregnancy, and people who at various stages of physical rehabilitation.

Risotto-Stuffed Mushrooms  (Makes 32) - Gluten Free



  • 32 large white or cremini mushrooms, washed and drained
  • 6 oz. oyster or shiitake mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped (½ cup)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • ¼ tsp. dried thyme
  • ¾ cup Arborio rice
  • 2 Tbs. dry white wine
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley

1. Stem white mushrooms, and set caps upside down on baking sheet. Set aside. Chop stems, and add to chopped oyster mushrooms. (You should have about 2 cups total.)

2. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes, or until translucent. Add chopped mushrooms, and cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until browned. Stir in garlic and thyme; add rice, and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until rice turns opaque. Add wine; simmer 2 minutes, or until most liquid has evaporated. Add broth, season with salt, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 18 to 20 minutes, or until most liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, and stir in parsley. Cool.

3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Fill each mushroom cap with 1 heaping Tbs. rice mixture. (A small cookie scoop works well.) Bake 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and rice begins to crisp on top.
