Our new Yoga classes at Greentree Village geared toward larger bodies seems like a hit.  Sadly our instructor, Lisa, will be leaving us in June, but Brenda will be resuming the classes in July under the new name of Love Your Body.  She'll be dropping into a couple of Lisa's classes so you can meet her.  You'll love her!

With my new grandchild around (I can't believe he just turned 10 months), I've seen him doing a lot of Yoga postures.  So I thought this month's Yoga Pose called the Happy Baby (aka the Window) is apropos. You'll also learn about whether gluten could be a problem for you and some Yoga tips when starting a program.  Those of you with wee ones, will also enjoy 10 fun things to do with your baby.

As Spring comes to an end this month and summer rolls in, you'll find us wrapping up class and starting anew.  Be sure to visit our website at www.intoyoga.ca or go directly to our class page at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm.  As always, during the summer we pare down what we offer, but lease remember to register for classes early just the same.

Enjoy the newsletter!


Happy Baby Pose (Ananda Balasana)


Appropriate for both beginners and advanced students this pose helps release the low back and stretch the hamstrings.


1. Come to lie on the back.

2. Bend the knees into the chest.

3. Open the knees, bringing them towards the armpits.

4. Stack each ankle directly over the knee, so that the shins are perpendicular to the floor.

5. Flex the feet.

6. Hold the outer edges of the feet at you draw the knees towards the floor.



Gluten: The Good and the Bad

Less than a decade ago, few people had heard of gluten. Now that’s all changed. Thousands across North America are choosing to reduce or completely remove the common protein from their diets to improve their health. “Gluten-free” foods now line grocery store shelves and most people are at least familiar with someone on a gluten-free diet.

But what exactly is gluten and what harm does it really cause for your health?  To continue reading, click here.

Yoga Tips

If you are brand-new to yoga, these tips will help you get started, whether you are taking yoga classes or planning to practice at home. Perhaps the most important tip is to always ask questions when you don't understand something. If it's about yoga culture or etiquette, more experienced students are almost always happy to share their expertise. Questions about specific physical postures are best directed toward your teacher, either during or after class.   To continue reading click here.


10 Fun Things To Do With Your Baby

New motherhood is incredibly joyful, but face it: It can sometimes be downright boring for both of you. So check out these activities and let the good times begin.

1.  Pack a picnic. Head to your local park with a blanket and lunch. Let your baby feel the grass tickle his feet, and have him lie on your lap and watch the leaves rustle in the wind. Even if he's too young to roll a ball, he'll love watching other people play. Frisbee games, bikes, dogs, birds, and squirrels are all five-star entertainment.

2. Consider a class. Because of unpredictable naps and moods, babies who are younger than 6 months don't always get a huge amount out of classes. Moms probably benefit more from them -- and that's okay as long as you choose an activity you actually enjoy! Some examples: Mommy and Me yoga (check your local yoga studio), a music class like Music Together or Kindermusik, a group exercise class such as Stroller Strides or Strollercize, or infant massage (hospitals often offer classes).

Rhubarb Blueberry Crumble (serves 6-8)



Colourful and both sweet and tart, with a crunchy topping, a small scoop of low-fat frozen vanilla yogurt is a perfect foil for this comforting and healthy dessert.

3 tbsp  (45 mL)  wheat germ
3 tbsp  (45 mL)  all-purpose flour

2 tbsp  (30 mL)  chopped pecans
1 tsp  (5 mL)  cinnamon
1/4 cup  (50 mL)  soft margarine

2-1/2 cups  (625 mL)  sliced rhubarb, 1/2-inch (1 cm) pieces
2-1/2 cups  (625 mL)  blueberries, frozen (if using frozen, do not defrost), or fresh
1/3 cup  (75 mL)  brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 tsp  (2 mL)  cinnamon
1-1/2 tbsp  (22 mL)  cornstarch


Preheat oven to 350F (180C).

Combine oatmeal, wheat germ, flour, brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon in a bowl and mix well. Work in margarine with a fork or fingertips until margarine is distributed and all the dry ingredients are moistened.
