Two more months until the end of the year, and November brings us to the 2nd and final set of our Winter 2016 classes.  We have several classes that begin this month, so be sure to visit our website www.intoyoga.ca or  check our schedule here.

Think you could squeeze in two minutes everyday for Yoga?  Research shows that even in that little time, if done everyday, it will help increase your core muscles.  Find out more in our article and check out the short video that accompanies it. 


Want to restore your brain power?  Power napping can have huge benefits for cognitive abilities.  Learn the best way to get the most benefits.

Balance becomes increasingly important as we age.  Unfortunately it can also become more challenging as we age.  In Yoga, balance requires a "still" mind. Learn how to connect with a "drishti" point to create a more internal balance to anchor yourself externally.


Having taught Baby Sign Language for the passed 10 years it still excites me to see a baby expressing their desires through signs.  Relieving much frustration from both parent and child, it's is a great way to not only communicate but to bond.  Find out what else you can expect by reading the article included this month.

I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter and don't forget to check out our classes at www.intoyoga.ca

Two Minute Yoga Routine
By Dr. Mercola

Yoga postures may not be something you've thought about for the purposes of improving your overall health and wellness. But research shows that even a daily, two-minute routine can strengthen core muscles throughout your body.

Simple yoga moves can also improve your balance, increase your flexibility and even boost your mood. They can be tailored to every fitness level and come with advantages for your attitude and outlook, as well.

Performed daily or at least three days a week, slowly but surely you'll find yourself becoming stronger, more flexible, and with a fresher outlook for your day. Special equipment is not a requirement. You need a few square feet of space and a mat, but don't let that stop you from starting now. You can get that later.  To continue reading and watch a 2 minute video to help you become more flexible over time, click here.


Power Napping for Brain Power

Napping may be thought of as being unproductive and lazy, but it’s one of the most effective ways to restore your brain’s power.

Scientific studies have found that napping can restore wakefulness, promote learning, boost memory, reverse the hormonal impact of a night of poor sleep, and reduce stress.

To set yourself up for a successful nap, you need to follow a few guidelines related to timing, environment, and diet. To continue reading, click here.

Steady Your Balance - How to Find Your Anchor in Balancing Poses
by Olga Kabel

I cannot read in the back seat of the car when I travel. It makes me queasy. This response is pretty typical since it reflects a conflict between three main sensory inputs that inform our sense of balance. When you are riding in the car your vestibular system (inner ear) and proprioceptive system (body pressure receptors) are telling your brain that you are in motion, but your eyes are fixed on the page, so they are saying that you are still. This kind of conflict can lead to slight vertigo.  To continue reading, click here.



Teaching Your Baby Sign Language Can Benefit Both of You
By Jane Collingwood

Baby sign language—a specialized sign language used to communicate with preverbal infants and toddlers—has become increasingly popular over the last few decades. It is intended to help very young children to express their needs and wishes earlier than they could otherwise. Baby signing experts believe that frustration and tantrums can be avoided by closing the gap between desire to communicate and the ability to do so. To continue reading, click here.



Coq au Van (6 Servings)
Original Recipe

This tasty crockpot or stovetop coq au vin (chicken in red wine) recipe is low in carbohydrates and high in protein. It is a gluten-free dish that can be a one-pot meal.


6 5-ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts or equivalent amount of boneless skinless chicken tenders
1 1/2 cup fat-free chicken broth
3/4 cup red wine
4 ounces sliced mushrooms
8 pearl onions or 1 cup of chopped green onions
1/2 teaspoon bacon bits or artificial bacon bits
1 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
salt and pepper to taste

Option: add 1 pound baby potatoes or potatoes cut into chunks. This adds carbohydrates and calories but makes it into more of a traditional complete meal.


  • Crockpot method: Place chicken, chicken broth, wine, mushrooms, bacon bits, thyme (and potatoes if desired) in a crockpot on low for 4-8 hours.
  • Stovetop method: Place chicken, chicken broth, wine, mushrooms, bacon bits, tarragon (and potatoes if desired) in a large deep saucepan and bring to a boil for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through but still tender.
  • Remove the chicken, potatoes and most of the mushrooms, keeping the liquid in the pan or crockpot. If using a crockpot, turn the crockpot up to high.
  • In a cup, mix the cornstarch and cold water, add it to the reserved liquid and stir.
  • Bring to a boil with stirring and cook until thickened. Salt and pepper as desired.

Serve each breast with 1/6 of the sauce.
