I hope you had a safe and spooky Hallowe'en!  But if you're now wondering what to do with the left over pumpkin, check out our delicious recipe.

With the exception of a few classes, we've already started our second set for the Fall session.  However, every location offers pro-rated fees or drop ins for most classes.  So don't feel because it's already started, that you now can't come.  Check all our classes at www.intoyoga.ca by visiting our classes page. 

In this newsletter, you'll get to meet my 14 month old grandson.  We've been teaching him sign language and he's becoming quite proficient, so we decided to put up our first YouTube video!  To work on balance and concentration, we offer you the Eagle Pose, and to open your heart chakra, we give you Namit Kathoria who discusses how Yoga connects with the heart.  Learn the science behind cleansing, and why it's much different and better than plain dieting.  We can offer you a simple easy cleanse that will not only give you results, but won't have you missing work and sitting on the toilet.

Consider joining our Turkey Burn cleanse.  You'll have access to free coaching, a dedicated Facebook group and accountability while you work on weight loss, youthful aging, energy and performance.  Contact me before November 3 for more information or order your products.


So, enjoy this month's newsletter, but don't forget to wander over to www.intoyoga.ca and check out any new classes starting, or ask for the pro-rated or drop in fee of any class that has already begun.

4. Bend your left knee and bring the right thigh over top of the left thigh as close to your groin as possible.

6. Balance, breathing normally.

7. Release and repeat on opposite side.



Cleansing vs Dieting

Cleansing is one of the many reasons that Isagenix systems are different from other “diets”. In fact, diet is really the wrong word to use to describe Isagenix. We offer a collection of systems that can be customized to your own health goals and adopted as a lifestyle, meaning these are habits and tools you’ll have for the long haul. Cleansing is one of those habits within an Isagenix lifestyle.

Isagenix has been leading the way to health by advocating the practice of cleansing for more than a decade. Now, recent scientific findings are leading nutritional researchers to believe that this practice of “cleansing”—a combination of intermittent fasting with herbs and vitamins that support detoxification—provides surprising health benefits.

A body of evidence in both animals and humans has been steadily building to support cleansing in combination with herbal supplementation and calorie restriction as a foundation for weight control, appetite regulation, improved insulin sensitivity, brain health, cell and tissue maintenance, and detoxification.

Opening the Heart Charka

The heart chakra is known as 'anahata' which means unstruck in Sanskrit. The striking of a bell produces a sound or a movement, but nothing is needed to strike the heart and start a beat there. The heart vibrates with its own energy and this energy is our essence. It is what gives us life and it is what gives you your personality. Some of the ancient scriptures describe anahata as the tiny flame that resides within the heart.

The heart chakra is described as a lotus flower with twelve petals in green and grey. The two colours signify balance. The grey represents compassion for yourself and the green represents compassion for others. The sense of balance you experience at the heart chakra also relates to the balance between your masculine and feminine sentiments. Meditating on the shapes and colours of the heart chakra awakens the dormant feelings of compassion and love within you.

Baby Sign Language

If you're still wondering what what it looks like when a baby signs, I thought I'd take advantage of my 14 month old grandson to show you.  He has many signs in his vocabulary, and easily expresses to his mom and family what he wants or is thinking. 

The other night while I was babysitting him, he heard a noise that gave him some concern.  He was able to sign to me that he heard something "noisy" which allowed me to show him what it was and calm him.  Had he not had the sign to communicate this to me, I would not have been able to interpret why he was upset.

Feel free to take a moment or two, meet my grandson Kaiden, and watch him go through some of his signing repertoire.  Just click this link.


Wild Rice Stuffed Pumpkin (serves 12)

Now that Hallowe'en is over, what are you going to do with the left over pumpkins?  Here's a thought.....

The stuffing for this entrée can be made two days ahead.


1 lb. wild rice blend

2 lb. fresh spinach, stemmed
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
6 cups sliced button mushrooms (1 1/2 lb.)
1 large onion, chopped (2 cups)
1 cup diced celery
9 cloves garlic, minced, divided (3 Tbs.)
3 Tbs. chopped fresh sage, divided
4 tsp. chopped fresh thyme, divided
2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
1 1/2 cups cooked kidney beans, or 1 15-oz. can
   kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup chopped toasted pecans
1 6- to 8-lb. cooking pumpkin


1. Prepare wild rice blend according to package directions. Transfer to bowl.

2. Bring 1/2 cup water to a boil in bottom of skillet. Add spinach, and cook 4 minutes, or until wilted. Drain, and cool, then squeeze dry, chop, and add to rice in bowl.

3. Heat 2 Tbs. oil in skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, celery, 4 tsp. garlic, 1 Tbs. sage, and 2 tsp. thyme; sauté 10 minutes, or until all liquid has evaporated. Stir in corn and kidney beans, and sauté 3 minutes. Stir mushroom mixture into rice mixture. Fold in pecans, and season with salt and pepper, if desired.

4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil. Cut top from pumpkin, and scoop out seeds and pulp.

5. Combine remaining 1/4 cup oil, remaining 5 tsp. garlic, 2 Tbs. sage, and 2 tsp. thyme in bowl. Brush oil mixture over inside of pumpkin. Fill pumpkin with rice mixture, cover with top, and bake 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until pumpkin is tender when side is pierced with knife tip. Uncover, and bake 10 to 20 minutes more.
