People asked me what I did with my time off during the Town of Oakville strike.  Truthfully it’s nice to have a break from my heavy teaching schedule as I teach up to 20 classes per week.  Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love my job because I don’t always give myself enough time to recover having three young kids.  I don’t exclusive teach for the Town of Oakville which meant I still ran classes out of Maple Grove United Church.  Something my partner Beverly and I have been doing for other a decade.

The first few days it was nice to get some much needed rest while also catching up on household chorus (you know that to-do list that has been snowballing for months) but then I got restless.  So I reached out to a few people who I happened to have their contact info over Facebook or via my newsletter (it pays to be on the list 😉).  I ran our first ever… and in the same breath, hopefully our last ever, beat the strike yoga class on November 10 at Maple Grove United Church.

We had a great turnout.  A lot of the people who showed up to stretch their bodies I have been working with for years.  Many of witnessed all three of my pregnancies and closures during the pandemic.  I’m so grateful for them.  Plus everybody you see below is either in their 60s, 70s and 80s – how impressive!

There’s a misconception about yoga that you need to be flexible or have good balance to practice and it’s the opposite that’s true.  We practice yoga so that we have more flexibility, balance and we stay agile in our later years.
