My 30-day Challenge – the HOW is revealed

When I committed to the Bikram 30-day Challenge, I knew I would be travelling at the end of February and so would fall short of the 30 days. Yet I had no hesitation in writing my name on the board because I knew I would finish … somehow. The way to complete the challenge would be revealed to […]

I signed up for my first Bikram Yoga 30-day challenge two days ago.   Yesterday at 9.05 a.m., I opened my front door, took the first step into -12o weather and headed to my class. One step at a time on sidewalks and streets filmed over with snow, ice and salt, I moved forward. Nothing was […]

Ambling home from my Bikram yoga class, legs feeling like two 10-ton truck tires, heart rate wending its way back to normal, mind very present from 90 minutes of mindfulness, I glimpsed on the sidewalk to my left what seemed to be a dead animal. This is a fairly rare sight in Toronto at 9.45 […]

The previous 2 weeks have been very hectic for me – my blog fans will notice that I haven’t even posted a blog during this time.  I have been inundated with “things to do” – all with deadlines that coalesced around this time – the University of the West Indies Toronto Benefit Gala, grading 300 […]

Yesterday I was riveted to the most amazing video of a dance performance by two men in Poland.
