*** New Saturday morning Wiser Yoga class is now live every Saturday at the RVN Wellness studio at 2506 St John St in Port Moody ** It will also be Zoomed live, so no changes there *** Starts at 10:30 to 11:45 *** Next class: Feb 27 ***
*** Yes – the Kushala live class is back now! *** So now you can take a Thursday class at 11 ***AND it will also be Zoomed live ***
*** New CD! *** And it’s a fundraiser *** I’ll donate $10 from each sale directly to a charity of your choice ** and it’s getting pretty good reviews too *** How to buy it? See the Home page – there are 3 ways to get it so far. It’ll be available on iTunes and Spotify soon ***
*** Tri City News had a great ‘end-of-the-year’ article about Seniors Yoga, my CD and an update from the May 2020 article ***
** I’m moving to a new Saturday studio space!! ** It’s a real stunner with bleached hardwood floors, new lighting, bright walls and lots of natural light. It only holds 8, so contact me if you feel like a live class again. It will also be Zoomed live *** Location: 2506 St John St, Port Moody, just west of the A&W ***
** The next Sat am class will be on Sat Feb 27 ** All Welcome! ** You’ll need the Zoom app ** Send me your e address and you will be contacted with the login information before the class starts **** The Wiser Yoga lunchtime class has returned to Kushala Yoga ** Thursdays at 11 am ** You can take the class live or on Zoom *** If you have a Wiser punchcard, let me know in advance that you will be attending and I can forward that to the Kushala registration list ***
** I haven’t figured out payment yet – $10 a class? Is that fair? If you have a punchcard already, just punch in the classes you take. If you prefer to pay by cheque or cash, why not wait until you’ve taken 5 classes and send me an e-transfer or a cheque? *** If money is an issue, just take the Zoom class and send me a cosmic hug ***
*** May 26 ***My Saturday morning class has moved. Actually, I mean it has moved out of that lovely space at Lincoln Centre. After almost 8 years! Between the landlord’s insurance issues and Covid-19, it was unfortunately time to say good-bye. If anyone has any suggestions as to where we can move to, please contact me. Strange times indeed :-(
*** May 20 ***It feels like something is happening with our Yoga classes *** Get ready for a reopening soon! ****
*** The May 14 issue of the Tri City News has an article about my Seniors Yoga Singalong classes. It’s also online at tricitynews.com. Look for the headline ‘Yoga Minstrel’ dated May 10 ***

**** The daily sun salutation really helps but I can feel myself getting stiffer **** I need the discipline of a class/schedule to focus me once again! **** here’s hoping just a couple more months and we’ll be back to a regular practice ****
**** I miss you guys! I miss the banter before class. I miss seeing you in person every week. I miss the calm focused energy of our practice together. I miss preparing the classes just for us! I miss hearing about your travels. I miss you all so much. ****** But…Kushala Yoga has over 100 video classes now available online. Maybe check out one of those. Unfortunately there won’t be a Wiser Yoga video class included with them – perhaps there is a ‘conflict of interest’, I’m not sure.
Or maybe just try to do a Sun Salutation every day! :-) I’d be happy to mail you a copy of the flow – just email me. Namaste, my friends
**** All Classes Cancelled Until Further Notice **** I feel so sad doing this, but it’s for the greater community **** Let’s hope we can get a handle on this asap **** Thank goodness we live where we do **** Ironically this is when Yoga can be of a huge benefit to most everyone **** Stay Posted ****
***** Raised over $200 for the charities listed on the ‘Kinda Yogic’ CD…. Big thanks to all who supported these causes
*** Some Pretty Exciting Changes ****
You can now take a Wiser Yoga class on a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday.
A coupon is good for any of these classes including those at Kushala Yoga in Port Moody on Wednesdays and Thursdays, at Rasa Flow Yoga in Port Coquitlam on Fridays and at my Wiser Yoga studio in Coquitlam on Saturday morning
**** Free Parking at 3020 Lincoln Avenue! ****
Look for a bunch of free parking spots in the underground around the western wall. They have the green ‘The Learning Circle’ decal on the curb on each spot. There’s also lots of free street parking in front of the building and also underground in the south-west corner of the building. 6 spaces there are clearly marked. It says 2 hours maximum, but I haven’t run into any problems there yet. There are also a few free spaces outside the same south-west corner of the building.
