You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state." ~ Sharon Gannon

Happy End of Year!  Can you believe another 12 months has flown by once again?  I hope it's been an exciting one for you and I hope the holidays are filled with family, friends, good food and lots and lots of joy!

Registration has begun for classes starting in January 2018 and we've got many new things to offer.  Here's a sneak peek at what's new.

We've had lots of requests for Baby & Me Yoga classes.....and now you can enjoy them on Wednesday mornings at Hastings Community Center.  Family Yoga has been going strong at Hastings CC too, so we've added additional classes at more facilities.  Be sure to check our website www.intoyoga.ca to find out where they are.

Other classes that include kids are Animal Kingdom Movements, Yoga Crafts, Little Ballerinas, Jazz and Tap.  We're also getting teens involved in their own Teen Yoga class for ages 13-17.

For adults, Yoga Dance
offers an eclectic combination of Salsa, Yoga and unique Postural Reflexes exercises, inspired by the Alexander Technique.  Also influenced by the Alexander Technique is Dynamic Posture....exploring gentle Yoga poses while acutely focusing on body movement, awareness and posture.

Want to try Yoga with a partner?  Try one of our new 2 hour Partner Yoga Workshops we're offering at Hillcrest Community Center.  Doing Yoga with a partner can bring a whole new dimension to your practice.

We're excited to bring Dancing Pilates back!  We haven't offered it in awhile because the instructor has been away on maternity leave.  But Lyndsey can't wait to get started again Thursday nights at Marpole Community Center.  This class offers a unique mix of
classical ballet barre repertoire with traditional Mat Pilates.   No experience required in either discipline.

Whether it's one of our new programs or one of our long held traditional ones, visit www.intoyoga.ca to see what we're offering and where we're offering them.

Be sure to register early because some classes fill up fast.  Why not go do that now, then come back and enjoy what we have for you in this newsletter?

Popular Myths About Parenting and Pediatrics

There are many popular myths that are spread to new parents by family members, friends and sometimes even their pediatrician. Many of these myths are just 'old wives tales,' and while they are generally not harmful, they can be confusing to a new parent who is trying to learn to do the right thing for their children. To continue reading, click here.


Carrot, Tomato, and Spinach Quinoa Pilaf with Ground Turkey

Original Recipe

Quinoa is one of the best healthy alternatives for a lot of carbs out there. Recently, my wife started switching us from white rice to brown rice to settling on quinoa. It has definitely made us healthier and lighter on our feet.

2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup quinoa
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cups water
2 tablespoons chicken-flavored veggie
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground thyme
1 carrot, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 broccoli, chopped
1 cup baby spinach, chopped 
2 tablespoons olive oil
1lb ground turkey (optional)
4.5 bounces can black beans, rinsed and drained


1)  Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir onion in hot oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir quinoa with the onion, and cook, stirring constantly, until the quinoa is lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.

2)  Pour water into the saucepan; add bouillon granules, black pepper, and thyme. Bring the liquid to a boil, place a cover on the saucepan, reduce heat to low, and cook at a simmer until the quinoa softens, about 5 minutes.

3)  Stir carrot into the quinoa mixture, replace cover, and continue to cook at a simmer until water is completely absorbed, about 10 minutes more.

4)  Remove saucepan from heat. Stir tomato and baby spinach into the quinoa mixture until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes.

5)  Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir turkey in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir black beans with the turkey; cook and stir until the beans are hot, 2 to 3 minutes; add the quinoa mixture, stir, and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes more.
