F I N D  Y O U R  Y O G A : an Exploratory Workshop Series

Find YOUR yoga with a series of three workshops at The Yoga Barre.

Led by TYB instructors Amanda Burkowsky and Mackenzie Dancho, these workshops will introduce you to several styles of yoga in a safe, accessible space, breaking down the poses, breath work and intentions of each practice. With lots of individual attention, time for questions and the expertise of two instructors, you’ll be able to discover a yoga practice that works with your body, and will leave feeling confident and comfortable enough to try any yoga class TYB offers.

The workshops will take place on October 16th, 23rd and 30th from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. Each session will include an opening circle/ group check in, an introduction to the style of yoga and benefits, a detailed hands-on breakdown of the postures and techniques, a group meditation and time to enjoy food and drinks and get to know your TYB community or reflect and journal.

Find Your P O W E R : October 16

In this workshop, we will explore the standing postures found in the Yoga Elements sequence, and prepare you to confidently find your flow in Vinyasa Yoga. Juice and snacks from Verde Juice Co. will be provided.

Find Your S T I L L N E S S : October 23

In this workshop, we will explore Yin yoga, tailoring the postures to your body so you can find stillness and comfort in Yin styles of yoga. Tea and dainties (and fancy sandwiches!) will be provided.

Find Your W I S D O M : October 30

Meditation is just so hard! Not after this workshop. We will explore different types of meditation (including colouring!) to help find styles that you can integrate into your life, as well as breaking down restorative yoga. This workshop will include a guided meditation that you don’t want to miss! Wine and sweets provided.

One of my main reasons to wanting to open a yoga studio was to have a platform and an opportunity to make a contribution and help out local charities, sports teams, and causes that are close to my heart.

To celebrate St. Patricks Day today, I thought I would post this super amazing green smoothie recipe.  It is one of my favourites because it involves a lot of greens (which are not always on the top of my ‘to eat’ list)

Green Kale Smoothie:

  • 12 ounces ‘milk’ of your choice (I use coconut, but use whatever you drink!)
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • shredded or sliced coconut (optional)

Blend all together, top with coconut if that’s what you like and enjoy!

See? Super easy! This is definitely my ‘go to’ when I’ve been super busy and haven’t had the time to eat my daily dose of veggies.

Some options:

  • Want it not as thick? Thin it out with water.
  • Want it a little more chill? Add ice.
  • Kale out of season and super expensive?  Spinach is also a great substitute!
  • Use whatever “milk” you like!  I used coconut cause I love coconut but really the option is completely yours!

Winter is not over yet! Keep warm with two interesting tea blends.

Like most Ukrainian girls, I have a weird affinity for beets.  I love them in everything! Salads, smoothies, roasted, and of course in my favourite soup: Borcht.

I also enjoy them in teas.  They give a nice pink hue to the tea and they add an earthy flavour.  Below are two tea blends that I have created for myself – feel free to try them out!

Beet Prepration:

I first had to dehydrate my beets:

Now I have a dehydrator (which I bought at Aviva Natural Health Solutions – http://www.aviva.ca/ and I highly recommend one if you can splurge for a healthy gadget! They are good for dehydrating more than just beets of course!)

If you do NOT have a dehydrator no need to worry!  Just preheat your oven to the lowest setting (Mine goes to 170) and do the following:

1.Thinly slice pre-cooked beets (either boiled or baked) and place on a baking sheet.

2. Put in oven and for about 8 hours, flip them over every 45 mins.  When beets can be easily crumbled or crushed then remove baking sheet from oven and let cool.

3. Once cool, place in a ziplock bag and beat with a rolling pin/wooden spoon/bottom of shoe/something heavy until beets are in smaller pieces.

4. Use beets in either one of the two blends that I created.

Heather’s Fruity Beet Rooibos:

1 cup red rooibos
1/2 cup dried beets
1/2 cup dried apple
1/2 cup toasted walnuts
1/2 craisins
1/3 cup dried goji berries
1/3 cup dried coconut chunks(or you can use shredded)
1/3 cup dried dates

You can buy rooibos and gogi berries at a health food store.  I bought mine at Vita Health (http://www.vitahealthstores.ca/) in Winnipeg.  The apple can be dried the same way at the beets (but have to be left in the oven for a longer time, around 10 hours)  I buy dates and then dice them and dry them out in the oven a little as well.

To toast walnuts: Place on baking sheet, put oven on broil and place sheet in the oven for about 3 mins, making SURE to keep an eye so that they do not burn!

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!

 

Heather’s Minty Beet Blend:

1 cup green rooibos
1 cup mint
1/2 cup dried beets
1/2 cup green yerba mate
1/2 cup lemon balm
1/4 cup dried ginger (cut ginger into thin slices and dry in oven or dehydrator)

You can buy green rooibos and yerba mate at a health food store (like Vita Health).  I grow my own herbs so this was a perfect time to use my dried mint and lemon balm that I harvested in the fall.

Making your own tea blend isn’t super hard once you know where to get all the basic ingredients.  If you happen to create your own, drop me a line (or comment here) to let me know what you did. I would love to try it out!
