Happy New Year!

I hope you brought in the new year with family, friends and good cheer!  Are you ready to take on 2014 and make it your best year yet?!

We've got some new classes this season. 

Yoga Dance at Champlain Heights  Community Center creates freedom of expression and a full body workout combining Yoga, dancing (Persian and Belly Dancing), and meditation, in one fun and invigorating class. Begin with a warm up of Yoga postures followed by dance movements and concluding with a cool down, relaxation, and meditation. This is a  great workout helping to lose weight while increasing stamina. It strengthens and tones muscles in a fun and pleasurable way. It also helps open up the line of Chakras (energy centers), inside the body. Everybody is welcome to join, regardless of their age, level of flexibility or experience.

- Yoga Nidra at Sunset Community Center is a powerful technique in which one learns to consciously relax. The word nidra is Sanskrit for 'sleep'. A guided meditation practiced while lying on the floor, an hour of Yoga Nidra meditation is to the body the equivalent of four hours of dynamic restful sleep and is an ideal practice for anyone who would like to feel more connected, improve memory and increase creativity.

Postnatal Yoga
at Kerrisdale Community Center allows mom time for herself (without her little one) to regain her pre-pregnant body. The focus of these classes will be on toning and restoring strength in the upper body, abdomen and pelvic floor after child birth, as well as addressing the emotional needs of the new mom. Meet other moms in a supportive community environment, while fostering your own yoga practice, with people who are experiencing the same developments and changes you are.

Got wee ones?  Consider Baby Sign Language or Yoga Tots.

We adjusted the time for Weight Loss Yoga at Champlain Heights to begin at 8:00pm.  And we continue to offer Love Your Body Yoga at Greentree Village on Wednesday nights and Champlain Heights on Thursday nights.  We've got LOTS of Yoga classes to offer you and even Pilates. You'll find all our classes at www.intoyoga.ca/classes.htm

Register early for classes to avoid disappointment.  We've been experiencing full classes, but when we don't have enough people, classes get canceled.  We'd hate to have to turn you away in either event.  Find out what's happening at www.intoyoga.ca and visit our "Classes" page often.

You've still got time to kick off January with our 2014 New Year, New You health campaign.  But you have to act TODAY! Effective tips, strategies and loads of support, along with one of our 30 Day Health and Longevity Packs will guarantee you results like more energy, weight loss, better sleep, reduced signs of aging and a whole lot more.  Find out more at www.intoyoga.ca/healthybody.htm.

The Problem with Juicing and Juice Fasts

There’s no shortage of diet fads out there for losing weight quickly. Juicing and juice fasting is one that has been around for a while—its premise being to consume fresh-squeezed juice from fruits and vegetables daily or exclusively for a day or up to 10 days or more.

However, a recent study in the British Medical Journal found that people who consumed fruit in the form of juices (more than three glasses of fruit juice a week) actually increased their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 8 percent, while those who consumed their fruit whole lowered their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 2 percent.

The problem is that the process of juicing extracts the nutrients and water from a vegetable or fruit and leaves behind the fibrous pulp. While the act of squeezing out some of the good stuff in fruits and vegetables—antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, etc.—screams healthy elixir, this processing also removes the nutrient-rich skin along with healthy fiber and a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals. There is also one other major caveat: sugar is squeezed out, too.

Depending on what fruits and vegetables are chosen to juice, the sugar content can climb pretty high. Without the fiber to slow down absorption, drinking the juice can send blood sugar levels spiking and crashing, leading to feelings of extreme hunger, irritability, and fatigue.  To continue reading, click here.

Yoga Poses to Establish Your Routine

Practicing yoga poses means transforming the body’s stress, anxiety, ill health, unhappiness and anger into a peacefulness and energetic form of health. Yoga is a good way of relaxation because it can relieve the tension in your body and mind without experiencing tiredness and overexertion.

Yoga poses provides flexibility, reinforces the muscles and even decreases fat build-up and also develops the circulation of blood and performance of specific organs in your body. There are a wide range of yoga poses that can aid a person to achieve a high level of self-awareness, steadiness, and strength.

For practicing yoga poses, you need to concentrate on your body and mind. Yoga poses will recover your health and enhance your quality of life.

Let’s look at a few simple poses and the way to do them.  Click here to see the series of poses, benefits and more.

Chocolate Tapioca Pudding  (serves 8)
View Original Recipe www.vegetariantimes.com

In this recipe, granulated tapioca thickens chocolate soymilk into a luscious pudding without the addition of flour or eggs. Granulated tapioca cooks up smaller and smoother than pearl tapioca, so the pudding may just win over avowed tapioca pudding haters.


  • 1 qt. chocolate soymilk
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking granulated tapioca, such as Let’s Do…Organic
  • 2/3 cup gluten-free vegan chocolate chips, such as Enjoy Life

Bring soymilk and salt to a simmer in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in tapioca, and reduce heat to low. Cook at a low simmer 20 to 25 minutes, or until tapioca is transparent and pudding begins to thicken. Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate chips until melted. Cool completely before serving.
