1. When did you start practicing Yoga and why?
I began practicing Yoga in 2001 while I was in University and a bundle of stress. I was drawn to practice Yoga and Meditation to manage my busy mind.

2. How has Yoga helped you in your life?
Yoga has helped me to create space; space between my thoughts and in my body. Regular practice has also helped me create space where I least expected it – between my reactions and myself. Yoga has helped me step back and witness the big picture with compassion.

Moss Street Paint-In – Saturday, July 18th, 2015

Come down and join us this Saturday July 18th to celebrate the annual Moss Street Paint In, Vancouver Island’s largest outdoor visual art event. From the Art Gallery at Fort Street down to the ocean at Dallas Road, Moss street transforms into a display of nearly 200 professional and emerging artists. If you have not experienced this community-focused event, you have to come this year and join your neighbours and friends and the other 35,000 people!

To celebrate, we are having a $5 Acupuncture afternoon on Friday July 17th (2-6pm with Brewster Scott); fun SALES, prize draws and more throughout Saturday; and Yoga and Acupuncture passes on sale from the 18th to the 20th! As you wander by, stop in and say hi, have some tea, and take advantage of some great deals!

We will be open for our regular Yoga and Acupuncture schedule on this day, so make a plan to check out the paint-in before or after. Please consider biking / walking / and arriving early as parking in the area will be limited.
