We've got a few classes with a start date in May.  But for those that are more ongoing, most of them allow drop ins.  So if you haven't registered yet, but want to participate for rest of the season, feel free to drop in.  You may also have the option to pay a pro-rated fee for the balance of the session.  Check our website often, at www.intoyoga.ca or go directly to our class page at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm.

In this month's newsletter you'll find information on a new high grade non dairy shake. Great for replacing a meal, or even freezing to make ice cream.  Yum!  Learn about why emotions come up when you're on your Yoga mat, enjoy our dairy free curried cream of celery soup, and learn a little American Sign Language.  It's not just for babies!

How about coordinating some Yoga or Pilates classes at your work place?  Find out how you can earn $100 cash when inviting Into Yoga to teach lunch time classes.   We're available for morning or after work too!

For all of you who celebrate, Into Yoga wishes you a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!  Visit www.downdogboutique.com for a 20% discount on some beautiful gifts.  Use coupon MOM20 at the checkout.

Enjoy the newsletter!


Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)



  • Strengthens the spine
  • Stretches chest and lungs, shoulders and abdomen
  • Firms the buttocks
  • Stimulates abdominal organs
  • Helps relieve stress and fatigue
  • Opens the heart and lungs
  • Soothes sciatica
  • Therapeutic for asthma
  • Traditional texts say that Bhujangasana increases body heat, destroys disease and awakens kundalini.

Go to www.drweil.com/drw/u/id/ART00523 for details on contra-indications, modification, variation and more.


1.  Lie prone on the floor. Stretch your legs back, tops of the feet on the floor. Spread your hands on the floor under your shoulders. Hug the elbows back into your body.

2.  Press the tops of the feet and thighs and the pubis firmly into the floor.

3.  On an inhalation, begin to straighten the arms to lift the chest off the floor, going only to the height at which you can maintain a connection through your pubis to your legs. Press the tailbone toward the pubis and lift the pubis toward the navel. Narrow the hip points. Firm but don't harden the buttocks.

4.  Firm the shoulder blades against the back, puffing the side ribs forward. Lift through the top of the sternum but avoid pushing the front ribs forward, which only hardens the lower back. Distribute the backbend evenly throughout the entire spine.

5.  Hold the pose anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds, breathing easily. Release back to the floor with an exhalation.


New Non-Dairy Vegan Shake

Are you ready for a filling, scrumptious tasting, natural, whole meal replacement shake with an excellent nutritional profile?  How about one that also contains absolutely no diary, soy, GMO's, or artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners? 

Given the record numbers of people who have sensitivities to different foods such as dairy, soy, or egg, the shake offers a fantastic alternative. The dairy-free alternative is ideal for those with sensitivity to dairy because of lactose intolerance or a milk allergy. Being plant-based, it also suits the lifestyles of those who avoid animal products altogether.  To read more, click here.

Ready to order your own dairy free shake?  Find more information and a grocery cart here.  (Please note: due to the high demand of these shake, they may be unavailable for a short period).

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. 


Emotions in Yoga

Last summer, Danielle Pagano hurried to her favorite yoga class feeling rushed but happy. Everything was fine until it came time to relax into Balasana (Child's Pose) just before the end of class. With her head bowed and attention focused inward, Pagano, a 33-year-old vice president of an international investment company, began to cry. She spent the next few minutes struggling to contain herself, and wrote the experience off to exhaustion. When it happened again the following week—this time earlier in the asana progression—she was stunned.   To continue reading click here.


Baby Sign Language

Here's a few links that will help you learn some signs that you can use with your baby.






Dairy Free Curried Cream of Celery Soup (serves 8)

Curry powder lends a spicy twist to this soothing standby.


¼ cup sliced almonds
2 Tbs. olive oil
6 celery stalks, diced (3½ cups)
1 large leek, white part halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (2 cups)
¾ tsp. salt
2 apples, peeled, cored, and diced (2 cups)
1 Tbs. curry powder, such as Madras
1 14-oz. can light coconut milk
2 Tbs. rice
2½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 Tbs. lime juice
¼ cup coarsely chopped celery leaves, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds on baking sheet, and toast 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Cool.

2. Heat oil in large pot over medium heat. Add celery, leek, and salt; cook 5 minutes, or until vegetables start to soften. Stir in apples and curry powder; cook 2 minutes. Add coconut milk, rice, broth, and 21/2 cups water. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 minutes, or until vegetables are soft when pierced with a fork.

3. Purée soup in blender until smooth. Return to pot, and stir in lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Ladle soup into bowls, and sprinkle celery leaves and almonds on top.
