I hope you had a wonder holiday season and ready for an incredible 2017!

As we begin our new year, we've got lots of classes to offer you....some well loved, some new.  I'm sure we have something that you'll enjoy!

First....some FREE classes for you to check out.  Wednesday January 11 Massage Ball Yoga starting at 6:30pm at Hastings Community Center.  Then Yoga Dance at Kerrisdale Community Center on Thursday January 12 starting at 11:15am. You can find these classes and more by going to our 'classes' page at www.intoyoga.ca.

Do you have a teen that enjoys Dance?  We're offering Improvisational Contemporary Dance after school on Tuesdays at Kerrisdale Community Center.  They'll not only love the class, they will enjoy connecting with other 13 - 19 year olds with the same interest!

We've been asked a lot for Yoga classes for younger ones.  So if you have one or more children between the ages of 4 to 7, let them join you in our Family Yoga Sunday afternoons at Champlain Heights.

Yoga for All has two time slots to choose from now at Champlain Heights.  Thursday nights from 6 to 7pm and then right after from 7 to 8pm.  The choice is yours!

How about some specialty Yoga classes like Yoga for Cyclists, Restorative Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Yoga for the Old Adult? We have those too!  Or come join one of our Pilates classes.

Of course, outside of fitness we have even more locations to offer you Baby Sign Language classes, including a FREE class at Hastings Community Center on Tuesday January 10 at 9:45am.  If you, or someone you know, have a baby under 2 years old, this class will teach you how to communicate better with them and forego a lot of unnecessary frustration.

Be sure to visit our website www.intoyoga.ca and check our entire class schedule here.  Registration for all classes has already begun and some classes begin as early as next week!

Enjoy this month's newsletter.

Sun Salutations Your Back Will Love

For most of us, the term “sun salutation” conjures up images of standing whole body moves that only intermediate and advanced yogis are capable of doing without pain. And if you're prone to pain, you may cringe at the thought of so much back and forth motion, especially while in a weight bearing position.

Here’s some good news.  A sun salutation can be simple.  It can be done at your desk.  It doesn’t have to be a hard workout.  The main ingredient of a sun salutation is the alternation between spinal flexion (i.e., bending forward) and spinal extension (i.e. arching back.)  If your version of a sun salutation preserves this movement pattern, you’ll likely be well positioned to enjoy the pose without risking your back.

Resisting Workplace 'Food Altars

For busy professionals, the simple act of walking down an office corridor or into a break room can cause damage to any healthy eating plan.

There runs the risk of passing by a “food altar,” which appear to materialize out of nowhere, offering goodies—usually in the form of cookies, birthday cake, or leftover bagels and doughnuts from executive meetings—in a seemingly deliberate attempt to sabotage your weight-loss goals.  To continue reading, click here.

Daily Yoga Lowers Blood Pressure

New research in a study presented at the 68th Annual Conference of the Cardiological Society of India (CSI) reported that yoga may have health benefits for prehypertension patients and may prevent prehypertension from developing into hypertension.

It is suggested that one hour of yoga every day reduces blood pressure and may help patients having prehypertension to avoid developing high blood pressure.  To continue reading, click here.



Childcare Options for the Modern Family

Finding someone to look after your children while you are at home or away can be one of the most daunting and overwhelming tasks a parent can face. Increasingly, studies are showing that there is a direct link between high quality child-care and a child’s emotional, cognitive and physical health. Good caregivers can do everything from help grow portions of a child’s brain to help them socialize and form bonds to other people.  To continue reading, click here.



Yogurt Chia Pudding with Blueberry Compote (2 Servings)
Original Recipe

1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup chia seeds
2/3 cup fat-free or low-fat plain Greek yogurt
2/3 cup water


1. For the compote: In a medium saucepan, combine the blueberries and sugar and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the berries just begin to soften and release their juices. Remove from heat and let stand and cool to room temperature. Once cool, place into a jar, seal the lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

2. For the chia mixture: Combine chia seeds, yogurt and water in one large or two smaller jars.  Stir, let sit for 5 minutes, then stir again, screw on the lid(s) and place in the refrigerator overnight.

3. The next morning, scoop the chia mixture into a bowl and top with half of the compote, or layer the chia mixture and compote in the jar.

Yoga/Pilates & Nutritional Cleanse Seminars at Work

We're passionate about bringing Yoga and Pilates into the work place.  For people who feel the demand and stress at work, don't have time to make it to a Yoga studio, or just simply want to take some time for themselves, Into Yoga has the answer for you.

Our certified professional instructors will come on site at lunch, or before or after work and teach classes right at the work place.

Be the coordinator of your office Yoga classes and you'll receive your classes for free if there are at least 10 participants.  We'll also give you $100 cash for any referrals that book 10 or more classes with us, including your own company!  That means we'll actually PAY YOU to take the classes!
