This week's Karma Yoga class will be going to a cause very dear to my heart - Lakefield Animal Welfare Society. I'm so grateful that this group exists. They are a "no-kill" shelter which is so important to me, they work very hard at finding homes for even the most difficult to place animals. They do not believe that euthanasia is an acceptable method of population control but that spay and neuter is the only humane way to combat the problem. LAWS is run strictly on donations, memberships and adoption fees. They do not benefit from any outside government or private sector funding. They have very large volumes of displaced and stray animals coming through and in their care and they can use all the support that they can get. This Saturday is the LAST #lock32yoga Karma Class of the summer and I am honoured to be leading it. Let's spread the word, share the event, invite our friends and family and get a good turn out! This Saturday morning at 10:00am - $10 suggested donation - kid friendly - beginners welcome - bring a mat or towel to practice on! We gather under the gazebo at the locks in Bobcaygeon. Check out our Facebook page for more information. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the yoga community of #bobcaygeon and all of the volunteers in the area that are so dedicated to all of these wonderful causes that are so important to those in need. Together we are making a difference. Together we are making the world a more supportive, loving, friendly place 🐶🐱🐹🐰❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #karmayoga#lakefieldanimalwelfaresociety#sarovarayoga
In 2011 I found myself on top of a bungee jumping platform over the Nile River in Uganda. As some of you may know I'm pretty scared of heights but as I was up there trying not to freak out I hear... "I left your house this morning,
'Bout a quarter after nine.
Coulda been the Willie Nelson,
Coulda been the wine"
I turned to the guy in charge up there and say "Is this The Hip?" He turns to me and says "you must be Canadian." Thanks for giving me the courage to jump Gord Downie you will be missed but never forgotten.
Yet another successful Archibald Christmas!
Not how I intended to spend my studio time tonight. 😞What other colour but the brightest pink for #GordDownie ? This is painted from a screen grab of the very end of #Bobcaygeon from the Kingston show. When all our hearts broke. Thank you, Gord for giving of yourself to the very end. It is truly inspiring. #thehip#tragicallyhip
It’s with his warm yet powerful voice I learn lines today... RIP #gorddownie#Bobcaygeon For those of you who don’t know him... He was the lead singer for a great band called The Tragically Hip. I suggest you go & download their awesome music. ➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳➳
Ta douce mais puissante voix dans mes oreilles aujourd’hui me réconforte... RIP. ❥
If you're looking for a conscious and caring gift for yourself or a loved one, give them the chance to feel lighter, clearer and more free in 2018.
I'm proud to offer 🍽 THE KIND CLEANSE 🍲: an organic 🌱 and Ayurvedic 🕉 detox program centered around a simple yet deeply nourishing and cleansing dish called #Kitchari . This one-pot, mung bean, rice and vegetable ‘stew’ has been prescribed seasonally for thousands of years for its gentle but powerfully cleansing benefits on the physical, emotional and energetic levels. If you’ve ever done a raw juice cleanse and wondered why it felt harsh, aggressive, cold and depleting, you will be relieved to learn how you can remove excess Ama (sanskrit for toxins), reboot your metabolism 🔥and soothe your gut in a way that will bring warmth and restoration even in the deep chill of ❄️winter.
What makes Kitchari so Kind?😇
~rather than feeling deprived, you will feel sustained
~rather than feeling flighty and anxious, you will feel grounded, safe and secure
~rather than feeling freezing cold or over-heated, you will feel comfortable and soothed
~you will find increased physical and mental clarity ~you will stoke Agni 🔥(digestive fire), increasing your capacity to digest food and life
~you might lose a few extra pounds along the way
~your purified body and being will more easily be able to connect to the inner Self which is the greatest healing of all
The program offers:💜 ~3 organic, pre-made Kitchari meals per day, cooked with love, prayer and sacred mantras
~recipe customization for your current imbalances according to the wisdom of Ayurveda
~unlimited support (text or calling) during your cleanse
