LOOK TO THE SOL W.A.Y. (Wellness, Art, Yoga)

The SOL WAY   …www.thesolway.com


What a year 2017 has been…. this time last year I never would have dreamed I would MOVE THE STUDIO and, yet, what a gift it has been on so many levels!

Beautiful view, all windows and garden door to a lovely large deck on the water and a coat closet (no more coat rack falling over… lol)! My students gave approval and many new faces will be enjoying it with us in 2018!

In 2017, continued SUNDAY S.Y.P. – FUND RAISING and helped the Dragon Fly Centre for Autism and CA-R-MA each receiving over $500. Such a feel good endeavour for everyone involved! The new year will see more of these events.


Looking back over the past 4 years, and particularly 2017, I am amazed how far we have come!

This year, 2018, will be year 5 since we opened our doors!

It is with great anticipation that I am looking at where we are expanding this year!

My goal has always been go help those who thought they could never do Yoga, realize the amazing benefits once they had the opportunity to try it.

The quieting the mind and managing, if not eliminating, stress and anxiety.


Feeling a new comfort level in their body, as they create more mobility and stability.


Connecting in a new way with their body as they learn to properly align when standing and sitting, often eliminating chronic pain!

Learning how to activate dormant muscles that eventually become inhibited from lack of use, causing issues like back pain.



This is the heart of the studio and through regularly scheduled YOGA classes and private FM (Functional Mobility) classes this has been accomplished and will carry on, as usual.

WELLNESS for the BUSINESS ATHLETE continues on demand as businesses enjoy the benefits of improving the bottom line once their employees have learned to use the new tools being offered in this 5 hour training.  Creating a new positive workplace culture is often said to be the greatest benefit! Also, offered quarterly through the year, individuals can sign up.  This, also, affords an ideal opportunity for the small business that can only afford to send one person due to staffing.

Now in our 5th year, I am pleased to say we will be offering an additional means of improving your WELLNESS  WITH ESEENTIAL OILS!

Expanding on WELLNESS, a new very recent interest has been Essential Oils. Timing is everything and Karen Douglas, a friend since grade 7, introduced me to Essential Oils in a way I found most interesting. For a long time I have been very concerned about the antibiotics I have to take when I become sick. The oils seem to have kept my immune system strong… I really find that exciting. Karen has a great support team with a wealth of knowledge and she and I are having a lot if fun… love learning! From time to time, we will Skype in some expertise on the 55″ TV!
So look for our Essential Oil classes if you are curious, like I was, to learn more about staying healthy without any unnecessary drugs!

(We are so blessed to have access to drugs and obviously there are times when they are necessary and lifesaving! My concern for myself is overuse of antibiotics may make them ineffective someday when they are the only answer!)

As the Official Yoga Instructor for the St. Stephen Jr. A hockey team, it is always a pleasure working with the team.  My new location was enjoyed by many but particularly the guys after a practice!
