How the 30 Day Challenge can change everything

My first challenge was unintentional. My brother in law bought me the sneaky and completely ‘jam-packed-with-ulterior-motives’ and just ‘give it a try’ famous introductory month at MYH. I was finally in a position to drive the distance and commit.

Why NOT to have a ‘spot’ in the hot room

When first embarking on your yoga journey, you were probably pushed outside of your conform zone the first few times you practiced, which is amazing! The more we push our boundaries, the more we grow and learn! That being said, when you were pushed, you most likely pushed back, finding ways to control your experience and feel less vulnerable.

A Dragon Slayers Journey to Yoga and what that looks like

For one student, Kyle Andrew, landing on his mat is actually for work! You see, Kyle is an actor and doing his own stunts, his career can be very physically demanding.

So as we got into October 2016 and the buzz began about November’s challenge, I had firmly decided that I wouldn’t be participating.


Student life can be hectic – But there is yoga for that!

What does Moksha mean? To some, it means salvation or freedom. For others, it means a safe place to exercise and practice yoga. To me, Moksha means family. This summer I was given the incredible opportunity to become a full-time member of the MYH community by working at the front desk. I have been practicing at MYH Dundas since 2012 and I’ve always felt like there was something special about coming into the warm studio being surrounded by even warmer faces greeting me before and after classes.


How one Yogi made her way through grad school with yoga

I started practicing yoga during a pretty hectic time in my life. I was juggling full-time grad school, a T.A. position, a part-time job working reception at a doctor’s office and working as a flight attendant on weekends. It was pretty intense living but incredibly enough I managed to keep grounded, primarily because I would… More details
