Fall classes are off to a great start.  Some are even full to capacity!  Many classes we offer run in two sets within a season, so we have some starting later this month and very early November.  Be sure to check www.intoyoga.ca to find all the new classes coming up.

Not all plant food is healthy. Plant-based diets may have advantages for both your waistline and your general well-being, but new research suggests that the foods you choose are what matter most for receiving the healthful benefits of plant-based nutrition.

Plank pose isn't all about arm strength.  It's really about engaging your core.  We'll walk you through the 'how to' in this newsletter.

Do you find Savasana (Corpse Pose) relaxing?  Not everyone does.  We've got some tips to help you achieve your best state of Savasana that you'll enjoy.

Teaching your baby to sign, isn't about getting them to understand you.  Babies understand the spoken word long before they can return in kind.  So using their hands to 'say' their wants and needs is what signing is all about.  Learn how to stop some of the frustration of the communication gap between you and your wee one.

Do you like shrimp?  What about garlic?  We've got a tasty recipe that pairs the two.  Read on.

Don't forget to check out all the class start dates at www.intoyoga.ca and remember to register early!

Hope you enjoy this month's newsletter!

If you're looking for core strength, the Plank Pose works wonders.  Be sure to draw in your belly and drop your tailbone slightly.

Here's how to do it:

1. Lay on your tummy, toes curled under, hands under shoulders, palms down, fingertips forward.

2. Inhale, exhale, straightening your arms, pushing the body up off floor as in a push up. Hold and breathe.

3. Bending your elbows, slowly lowering your body back to floor.

4. Relax.

5. Repeat.

NOTE:  If you're more of a beginner, you can do this pose on your hands and knees. 


Benefits of Plant Based Nutrition Depends on Your Choices

Large, population-based studies continue to find links with health benefits for those who follow vegetarian or vegan diets. For example, research suggests that on average, those who choose plant-based diets are less likely to be overweight than omnivores. Other research has linked a plant-based eating pattern with better weight management and improved long-term health. Considering these positive research findings, it’s easy to wonder if vegetarian or vegan options are always a healthier choice.

Tips to a More Relaxing Savasana

Savasana (Corpse Pose) is the final pose in a yoga practice that all other BEING poses are preparing for. However, when well supported it can also be a pose to begin with that sets the perfect tone for a successful BEING practice. Whether practiced at the beginning, end, or both, Savasana is designed to be experienced as an opportunity to turn away from constant doing, controlling, commanding, and assigning.

The Benefits of Baby Sign Language

In the last few years, baby sign language has gained in popularity, joining music class and stroller fitness on the “must do” list for the first year. But while these classes offer similar benefits — bonding time and a chance to meet parents with similar interests — baby signing has an advantage: giving babies language earlier.

“People confuse speech and language,” says Laura Berg, founder of My Smart Hands, a baby sign language program, and author of The Baby Signing Bible. “Baby signing isn’t about us talking to them, it gives babies a language to talk to us. It minimizes the guessing game.”  To continue reading, click here.


Garlic Shrimp
 (4 servings)
Original Recipe

Shrimp is one of the healthier meats we can consume. It is both high in protein and low in calories which makes it an excellent weight cutting food. It has vitamins B6 and B12. It is often quickly prepared and easy on the taste buds. Try this awesome garlic shrimp recipe we’ve discovered and let us know what you think below!


1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

salt to taste

6 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon caper brine

1 1/2 teaspoons cold butter

1/3 cup chopped Italian flat leaf parsley, divided

1 1/2 tablespoons cold butter

water as needed


1. Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet over high heat until it just begins to smoke. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.

2. Season shrimp with salt; cook and stir until shrimp begin to turn pink, about 1 minute.

3. Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice, caper brine, 1 1/2 teaspoon cold butter, and half the parsley.

4. Cook until butter has melted, about 1 minute, then turn heat to low and stir in 1 1/2 tablespoon cold butter. Cook and stir until all butter has melted to form a thick sauce and shrimp are pink and opaque, about 2 to 3 minutes.

5. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl; continue to cook butter sauce, adding water 1 teaspoon at a time if too thick, about 2 minutes. Season with salt to taste.

6. Serve shrimp topped with the pan sauce. Garnish with remaining flat-leaf parsley.
