Yoga in Burlington: Just Be

I have been really feeling the winter blahs this month.  It seems like so long since I've been able to step outside without a bone-chilling wind & damp air permeating every cell in my body.  It affects my mood, it affects my health, and it affects my relationships.  I know I'm not alone in this, as many of you are also going through this after a long and grey winter.  Fortunately, even though the spring weather is still a few weeks away, there are things you can do to elevate your energy and your spirit.  My favourite choice: yoga.

My lovely friend Kathy and I have been "committing" to yoga for months now, although so far this year we only managed to drag our sorry arses there once.  Pathetic.  Today, however, we got ourselves there and WOW am I glad we did!

After 75 minutes of Vinyasa II class - taught by Be Yoga & Wellness owner and teacher, Tracy Ng - we were rejuvinated, relaxed, and infused with positive energy.  Sure, we had wobbly legs as we coaxed muscles we haven't used in months out of their winter hibernation.  Sure, we fell over once or twice as we tried to use our depleted core muscles to balance on one leg.  But honestly, you simply cannot beat the feeling you get at the end of a great yoga class.  It's empowering!

If you haven't been, I highly recommend this progressive, embracing studio in Burlington.  The instructors are so wonderful, there are many options to choose from including beginners yoga, hot yoga, aerial yoga and more, and the environment is truly serene.

You'll be seeing Kathy and me there every Thursday morning from now until summer.  And quite possibly for the rest of our lives.
