Life is full, summer is great. I am house sitting for a friend, a friend who is a much better housekeeper than I am and I am here to say that it is much easier to keep someonelse's house clean than my own. My kids make their beds, and dishes are done after dinner. The cleaning lady is coming tomorrow and I find myself thinking about making sure that everything is picked up so that it is easy for her to clean. I don't have any of my things around me except my computer and a few clothes. It has been three weeks. I don't really miss my things. I miss the selection of clothing, but I am managing without it. I miss having all my books, but the internet has most things that I look for. I stop by and visit with my bird most days and spend some time with him. The cats here are pretty cool, Timo likes to fetch and Matrix curls up in a little ball in my lap if I sit still long enough. The house is spacious and the back deck is one of my favourite places to rest for a few minutes everyday. Yoga on the deck in the early morning is nice and cool.
Even the laundry room is clean.

Tomorrow my son turns 16. He was born 16 years ago and it feels like the other day. The years are filled with wonderful memories and growing pains. I look at him across from me tonight and I am in awe. Almost as much as the day that he was born. He doen't make eye contact with me the way that he did that day, but he has begun to give real hugs again and there is hope that the wonderful child that I know is still inside this large, hairy man sitting beside me. He is beautiful, handsome, smart, talented and a total pain in the neck. Hard to believe that you can love someone so much.

May the Sun be on your back and light your way.

If the eyes are the doorway to the Soul, music is the gateway to heaven. This past weekend yoga teacher training was focused on mantra and nad yoga. We had fun, we played, we did some yoga and we chanted a lot. Everyone left a little high on sunshine, mantra and life.

The website is up-to-date once again. Yippeee!!!! Working on the hard copies for the studios next.

We should have a newsletter out this week as well. Then all will be well in my little world of yoga communications.

Thank you for your patience while I fumble around with technology.
Bright Blessings to all who take the time to read this little note,

New Website

Hello Yogi's and Yogini's,
The new website is up - but it is full of out-dated material and incorrect information. Please send me an email to check if you have questions. In the meantime - please be patient with me as I learn to update the website. It is somewhat user friendly, Rebecca makes it look easy, but it never seems to be so easy when she is not in the room.

Soon, up-to-date reliable info available on our website.

Jai', Ganesha,


Hello All,
Yes, there are problems with the old phone number. For the time being use 519.240.9642.
The new web site is on its way. The girls tell me it should be up by Wednesday at the latest.
the fastest way to get information is to tex message me at the number above or send me and email at info@atlasstudio.com.

Lisa is not feeling well and will not be teaching this Thursday - either myself or one of our wonderful teachers will be filling in.

We are thinking of Cancelling the Saturday am class in Cambridge due to lack of attendance - should we make it a hot class?

I always look forward to your feedback.
