Spring IS here!  I hope you enjoyed an AMAZING weekend and for those of you who had little ones searching for chocolates and other goodies, I hope they had a day filled with fun and joy.

Registration for our Spring classes is in full swing.  We are offering a brand new class at Greentree Village on Wednesday nights called Body Positivity Yoga.  Designed for larger bodies and taught by a fabulous teacher with a larger body herself, Lisa will have you wondering why you waited so long to join.  She's fun and upbeat, and will have you feeling confident about Yoga both on and off the mat.

We've made some adjustments to days and times for a few classes to hopefully capture more interest.  Be sure to check our classes at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm to find one that suits you best.  Remember to register early to avoid disappointment of a full class or a canceled class. 

From babies to seniors, we're offering you lots of classes to choose from like
Baby Sign Language
Baby & Me Yoga
Prenatal Yoga
Yoga Tots
Pilates

5 Ways to Get Over Salt, Sugar and Fat


The “processed-food-industrial complex” has most of us hooked on junk food and convinces us to eat more of it, more often, every year.

How? With advanced technology, big food companies calculate the “bliss point” of sugar or salt and perfect the “mouthfeel” of fat to introduce endless varieties of new products designed to be irresistible. Then, they use powerful tactics to market it to sell it to us, and our children.  To continue reading, click here.

Go here to learn more about Isagenix products or to purchase products at retail.  Or contact info@intoyoga.ca for more information about how you can save 30% or more on products.

Yoga When You're Overweight
www.yoga.about.com

Starting a yoga practice can be intimidating for anyone: you’re ready to enjoy the benefits of yoga, but how do you make the leap to actually doing it? Yoga studios can seem like private clubs, where you have to know the secret handshake and password before you'll be allowed to join. Add to this scenario the popular image of the yogini: young, lithe, and twisted like a pretzel in skin-tight spandex. What if that image bears little resemblance to yourself? If you are overweight, overcoming both your mental and physical hurdles to try yoga for the first time can be even more challenging. To continue reading click here.

Yoga Fun

 

Q. What did the sign in the window of the yoga master searching for a new disciple say?
A. Inquire within!

Knock knock
Knock knock
Who's there?
Yoga
Yoga who?
Yoga to try this, it feels amazing!

Q: What do Yoga meditation and a fudge cake have in common?
A: They each bring you a piece or peace of heaven. 

If you fall out of Vrkasana (Tree Pose) in woods & no one sees it, did you really fall out of it?

Signing Some Songs


I was asked in class the other day if there were any children's songs on the internet that showed the signs with it.  I figured there must be.  So I took a little time to seek some out for you.

Click on the links below to see the musical ASL version of the songs.  Some of the signs are slightly different than what I teach in class, but correct none the less.  There are many words that can have multiple signs in ASL.

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Coulis

 (serves 12)
www.vegtariantimes.com


Similar to a chocolate soufflé, this cake will rise, then fall slightly when cooled, leaving a cracked top. A fresh strawberry sauce balances the richness of the chocolate. The cake can be made up to two days in advance. For perfect, clean-cut cake wedges, dip the knife in hot water before cutting each slice.

 

Cake
  • 8.5 oz. bittersweet (60% cacao) chocolate, chopped
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 4 large eggs, separated, at room temperature, divided
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
Coulis
  • 1½ cups sliced fresh strawberries (8 oz.)
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • ½ Tbs. lemon juice


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 300˚F. Coat 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

2. Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler. Remove from heat, and whisk until smooth and glossy. Whisk egg yolks, then stir into chocolate mixture.

3. Beat all 6 egg whites with electric mixer on high 1 to 2 minutes, or until foamy. Add sugar, and beat 4 minutes, or until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg white mixture into chocolate mixture until just combined. Pour into prepared pan, and bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out mostly clean. Cool.

4. To make Coulis: Combine strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in bowl of food processor; let stand 5 minutes. Add 2 Tbs. water, and purée until smooth. Strain through fine-mesh strainer. Serve Cake drizzled with Coulis.
