Classes are underway, and I thank everyone who registered early.  It's really helpful to have an idea well in advance whether a class will run or not.  Sometimes classes get canceled only to have people contact us on the first day to say they wanted to join.  I really feel bad then. 

I'll take this time to remind you that some classes run in short sessions and the second set may start as early as the first couple days of November.  So, please be sure to check our website www.intoyoga.ca for the second go around of classes.

Hip openers are one of the most requested postures in many classes.  So we devoted this month's asana routine to them.  You'll find some classic ones in the article we've provided and hope that they'll limber you up!

Trying to find ways to wake up in the morning?  Hopefully some of the ideas you'll find here will help invigorate your day.

I've included an article about Aqua Yoga.  I'd love to have your feedback on what you think of us offering something like this and if it's something you'd be interested in attending.  Please check out the article and let me know what you think.

Once you have had the baby, there are many platitudes that you will hear from well meaning friends and family. Sure, they all sound like great things, but are they really true? Some of them may be dispelled here...sorry.... :)

Hungry?  Check out our stuffed chicken recipe below.

Visit our website www.intoyoga.ca or go directly to our classes at www.intoyoga.ca/classes to find out all we offer.

Enjoy this month's newsletter!



Hip Openers

I think one of the biggest request I get for poses are for hip openers.  So many people have stiff, sore and inflexible hips.  These poses are excellent for limbering up the hips and taking away some of the discomfort that many of us feel in that area.  To check them out click here.

Aqua Yoga

I had seen the ladies of a certain age doing stretches with noodles in the pool at my local Y, so I thought I knew what water yoga was all about: Your standard yoga poses aquaticized, probably super gentle, maybe a little boring. Still, I was planning an article on aqua yoga so I trotted over to that very same YMCA for a class. And boy, was I surprised.

I've done quite a bit of yoga and a fair amount of swimming in my day, but neither really prepared me for what it's like to do yoga in the water.  To continue reading, click here.

5 Lies We Tell Ourselves Postpartum

One of the hardest things about being a parent is the sleep deprivation. We prepare for it by steeling ourselves against the thought. The sleepless nights of the end of pregnancy that we manage with (mostly) grace have lured us into a false sense of security for what it will really be like once the baby is here. After all, it’s one thing to be awake in your bed and unable to sleep, it’s another to be up and functioning while caring for a newborn.   To continue reading, click here.

Chicken Stuffed with Red Peppers, Pine Nuts and Spinach (2-4 servings)
Original Recipe


This healthy, dinner-guest-worthy dish has an added bonus: It features specific ingredients that aid the digestive system. From The Life Plan Diet.

Spinach and parsley are high in glutamine, an amino acid that helps maintain the health of the intestinal lining. Here, chicken is pounded thin and wrapped around garlicky spinach, red peppers, parsley, currants, and pine nuts. The result is an elegant chicken dish that is satisfying to the eyes and stomach.

Ingredients
:
Two 6-oz organic chicken breasts
1 tbsp dried oregano
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 bunch spinach, chopped
Pinch red pepper flakes
2 small roasted red peppers, chopped
3 tbsp chopped parsley
2 tbsp currants
3 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
Any kind of butcher or kitchen string, presoaked in water


Preparation:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Split each chicken breast in half and pound with a meat mallet between sheets of plastic wrap. Be careful not to make it too thin or the chicken will fall apart. Season on both sides with oregano, salt, and pepper.

3. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil on medium-high heat in a medium sauté pan. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

4. Add the spinach, a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, and the red pepper flakes to the garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes, or until the greens are wilted.

5. Remove from heat and add the roasted peppers, parsley, currants, and nuts.

6. Top each piece of chicken with one-quarter of the spinach mixture. Roll the chicken tightly around the filling and tie with the string.

7. In a medium pan heat the remaining 2 tbsp of olive oil on medium-high heat.

8. Add the chicken and brown on each side.

9. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Before serving cut the string. Then carefully slice each bundle into 1/2-inch pieces.
