Life can be such a series of ups and downs. One day you are going along, happy and hopeful, and the next day you are faced with challenges beyond comprehension. It is always a dance. My youngest daughter just got married in April of this year. She and her new husband have been in the process of buying a house. It has been one hopeful moment followed by disappointment one after...

As someone who is always on the lookout for new students to walk into my studio, I am constantly talking to people about how much yoga can benefit their lives. I have talked to community groups, spoken to doctors at medical centers and am generally just trying to spread the word. But it seems that at least once every day I hear this statement “I can’t do yoga; my body...

I recently spoke with someone who has been trying to deal with problems of the past. Unfortunately, the way this person is trying to deal with it is by ignoring it. He seems to live by the mantra of “live in the now”, each time shoving the problems back down. Except that the problems seem to be fighting back in the way of panic attacks and adrenal fatigue. Being a good...

On Friday May 25th, I was honoured to receive the Excellence in Inter-professional Pain education award from the Canadian Pain Society. I am the first physical therapist to receive this award, and I believe the first educator who is not an academic-researcher, so it is a very special honour. As part of the award, I shared a 45-minute presentation at the conference, so I thought I would write a summary...

My studio has been going through some changes lately. Positive changes, but even positive changes are not without challenges. I have been teaching yoga 10 years now and have nurtured this child of mine called Active Kat Yoga. Unfortunately Active Kat Yoga has been very slow growing, in fact in some cases I have actually had to step back two steps in order for me to take one step forward. At...

Change is always necessary for everyone. There are different paths of change that we can choose. As with everything, there are better paths than others. I believe that when we get stuck in one direction, that’s when things fall apart. When we change or shift, it will emanate around us. But it does begin with ourselves. The most important point is not to go on the path of anger. I have seen it...

Finally, after a few years of good intentions, I am sitting down to blog. According to a quick internet search, this means that I am going to share ideas, information, opinions, and reflections. From a personal perspective though, much of what I intend to share is being passed on through me to you from my colleagues, teachers, patients and students. There will be some thoughts I consider my own too,...

Saturday, April 20th — what a perfect day for an event. Crowds of like-minded people, excitedly converging on an amazing location. The hype has been incredible leading up to this moment. It is going to be mind-blowing! Just the line-up alone is getting me so jacked up: The Black Keys, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Rihanna, Usher, Enimem, Snopp Dogg, Dr Dre, etc… I slowly open my eyes. Hey, wait a minute. I thought...

Participating in Sharan Ro’s presentation, “New Era Living: The World of And” turned out to be a wonderful Wizard of Oz-like journey into a land where instead of either/or answers to life’s options and pathways, the answers can be, well, why not both? Why not choose this AND that too? Why not, indeed. Another breakthrough in those walls of limited thinking that hold in so many of our...

Miss the Live Session? The Energy is Still Transmitting! My own meditation and energy work teacher said to me during one of my first meditation classes, “I don’t know if you know it, but you run a LOT of Kundalini energy. It’s probably hard for a lot of people to keep up with you.” That was about six years ago. I had no idea what that meant at the time, and...
