Did you enjoy the snow?  Lovely to look at, but I'm sure glad I didn't have to drive on those days.  Let's hope it's over and we can get back to looking forward to Spring again!

Speaking of Spring, we've got lots of classes to offer you, including more Pilates and Yoga classes and more baby and preschool classes starting April and May.  Plus even a few that begin this month.  Registration will begin shortly at most locations so be sure to check our website often.  Go to www.intoyoga.ca to find out everything we're offering.  Remember to register early to avoid disappointment!

Enjoy this month's newsletter.

Yoga Poses You Should Practice Everyday

Some days, it's just not possible to put in a full hour of yoga. But most days will allow for this 10-to-15-minute sequence that stretches the back, hamstrings, and hips. These are problem areas for many people. Think of this sequence as your maintenance plan. It will keep you running smoothly until you can get in for a full tuneup. To learn more, click here


Cleansing at a Cellular Level

Cleanse Days are a powerful tool in helping you to reach or maintain a healthy weight. But the science behind Cleanse Days suggests there may be additional benefits for your health beyond a slimmer body.

Many of us eat five times a day or more, including meals and snacks. This type of eating pattern provides your body with a steady flow of nutrients, but even when you make healthful choices about your meals and snacks, your body can still benefit from an occasional break from all-day eating.  To continue reading, click here.

Health Benefits of Pilates

People who dance are easy to spot, even offstage. “They’re very aware of their body’s position in space, and they move almost like cats,” says Marie-Louise Bird, a Pilates researcher and post-doctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia. “But most of us are more like puppy dogs, moving without much attention paid to our posture.”

Luckily, the puppy dogs among us don’t have to go to dance school to get better body awareness. They can just do Pilates.  To read the article, click here.



Is Baby Sign Language Worthwhile?

Baby sign language — when babies use modified gestures from American Sign Language — can be an effective communication tool. Teaching and practicing baby sign language also can be fun and give you and your child an opportunity to bond. To continue reading, click here.


Vegan Shepherd's Pie
Original Recipe

A rich, hearty and easy veggie pie, topped with fluffy sweet potato and crisp zesty breadcrumbs.

600 g Maris Piper potatoes
600 g sweet potatoes
40 g dairy-free margarine
1 onion
2 carrots
3 cloves of garlic
2 sticks of celery
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
Olive oil
˝ a bunch of fresh thyme
350 g chestnut mushrooms
12 sun-dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
vegan red wine
100 ml organic vegetable stock
1 x 400 g tin of lentils
1 x 400 g tin of chickpeas
5 sprigs of fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 lemon
30 g fresh breadcrumbs


1) Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6.

2) Peel and chop all the potatoes into rough 2cm chunks. Place the Maris Pipers into a large pan of cold salted water over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender, adding the sweet potatoes after 5 minutes.

3) Drain and leave to steam dry, then return to the pan with the margarine and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper. Mash until smooth, then set aside.

4) Peel and finely slice the onion, carrots and 2 garlic cloves, then trim and finely slice the celery.

5) Bash the coriander seeds in a pestle and mortar until fine, then add it all to a medium pan over a medium heat with a good splash of oil. Pick in the thyme leaves, then cook for around 10 minutes, or until softened.

6) Meanwhile, roughly chop the mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, then add to the pan along with the vinegar and 2 tablespoons of the sun-dried tomato oil from the jar.

7) Cook for a further 10 minutes, then add a splash of wine, turn up the heat, and allow it to bubble away. Stir in the stock, lentils and chickpeas (juice and all), then leave it to tick away for 5 to 10 minutes, or until slightly thickened and reduced.

8) Pick and roughly chop the parsley leaves, then stir into the pan. Season to taste, then transfer to a baking dish (roughly 25cm x 30cm).

9) Spread the mash over the top, scuffing it up with the back of a spoon.

10) Finely slice the remaining garlic clove, then place into a bowl with the rosemary leaves, lemon zest, breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon of oil. Mix well, sprinkle over the mash, then place in the hot oven for around 10 minutes, or until piping hot through.

11) Place under the grill for a further 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden, then serve with seasonal greens.
