Deep Rest

Over the years of working in the clinic I have come to realize that whatever someone’s health concerns may be, one of the most important contributors to health and well-being is Rest — Rest for the mind, body, and spirit.  Rest is the state where our bodies can digest, repair, mend, and heal, yet for many of us, rest is an increasingly scarce experience.  Despite the notion that Summer is restful, for many it just means longer days of more doing!

Ever Evolving


Welcome to the third edition of the hemma website!  Three versions in seven years seems par for the course in the ever evolving, fast moving technology that is the internet.  We hope you enjoy this new simplified version. If some of the text seems out of place, refresh your browser or empty the cache on your computer 🙂

As you can see we no longer have two sides to our site — one for yoga and one for acupuncture.  Instead we have merged the two into one, much like our original design.  I think this represents our evolving understanding of the true partnership of these services — yoga and acupuncture — and their shared potential for creating health, transformation, and supportive community.  They stand side-by-side, complimenting and supporting one another, just as we all do for each other.

You may also notice that we have created more of a window into hemma with lot’s of colourful photographs — hopefully you won’t miss those playful drawings too much!  Finally we hope that the new design makes it easier for you to learn more about us,  see what we’re up to, and access our services.

Always moving forward, ever evolving,

All of us at hemma!
