Yoga for healthier kids!

Yoga for healthier kids!
Happy father’s day! Here’s a shot taken of me by James in Lionshead! This post is dedicated to the New Leaf Yoga Foundation, a charitable Canadian organization that makes yoga and mindfulness practices accessible to “at risk” youth who have experienced trauma, marginalization and even incarceration. I’m a strong believer that yoga can make s [...]

Body Image: How can you improve yours?
Another very eventful week! After I spent last weekend with my family in Windsor to meet my new nephew, I rushed back to Kitchener for a few work meetings and interviews (keep you fingers crossed for me!). I also began course work for the post-grad program I’m working on- very excited about the trajectory I’ve been moving along. After a busy [...]

3 Reasons to Garden!

3 Reasons to Garden!
Yet another action packed week for me with some pretty exciting improvements. I spent half of the week in Lionshead again, about a quarter of the week in Kitchener and the weekend in Windsor. I could not be happier to have so many opportunities lately to climb in Ontario and also go home and spend time with my family, which brings me to some [...]

The Food Gap: What Can We Do?

The Food Gap: What Can We Do?
  I stayed in Lionshead until Wednesday and returned to the city. My time in Lionshead was amazing like always; when I wasn’t working away on my computer, I enjoyed some long kayaks in the sunset, went out to pick some wild edible plants and climbed some very wet routes. I was surprised at how much chaga mushroom and leeks there where  o [...]

Another exciting week on my end! After spending the weekend with my family in Windsor (I made my mom her own personal health cook book!), I returned to Kitchener with lots on the go! I was quick to get a few important meetings done for new contracts as well as finish a few writing assignments and then I was off. I returned to Lionshead this F [...]

7 natural ways to fight pain and inflammation
Amazing last couple of weeks on my end. I was lucky enough to catch the end of April in Kentucky, thanks to the help of my boyfriend who drove me to Ohio and a friend from Cincinnati who took me the rest of the way. After spending a weekend back home in Windsor with my family for my sisters baby shower, I was very excited to finally get back [...]

4 reasons to do yoga!
Sorry for my absence over the last few weeks! It has been a serious time of for change for me, which I am very excited about. As you may have noticed, my website has had a major makeover thanks to my boyfriend, who has worked hard, tirelessly to help me out. My birthday was also a few weekends ago, on the 19th, which was filled with hiking, g [...]

Tomato: a power house food!
  I thoroughly enjoyed the Total Health show this past weekend; I listened to some excellent speakers, learned about some new Canadian Natural Health products and ate some pretty delicious food from the healthy venders at the show. Aside from the show, I have been so busy with work this past week that I still haven’t been able to e [...]

4 reasons exercise is holistic medicine!
This past week has been a busy one: now that I have a (relatively) functional leg, I have been able to work more hours and return to some of my favourite activities. I started yoga again on Monday and have noticed some serious progress each class in the strength, flexibility and balance of my right leg. While I am still unable to fit my own c [...]

Your guide to fresh herbs!

Your guide to fresh herbs!
Long week on my end! Being free of a cast, although I am very very grateful of it, has been  a wee bit more difficult than I had anticipated. It has certainly been a challenge to start walking again, with my biggest limitation being flexibility in my ankle. I am almost able to walk without a limp and I can already do some one legged balancing [...]
