I first came to Halifax Yoga last September when I joined the 40 Days to Personal Revolution program. I’d had a little bit of experience with yoga in the past few years, but I’d never regularly attended a studio while living with my parents in Murray Corner, NB. I came across HY and the 40 Days when I knew I was moving back to the …Continue reading the article
Hi there my name is Jo-Leen, I am 41 yrs young from Halifax NS
My yoga adventure started just 5 months ago, back in Aug. The history of my yoga experience was attending 1 hot yoga session with my sister 10 years ago. I enjoyed it but never took my practice any further until recently.
I was in a snowboarding accident and broke my wrist …
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
(At Halifax Yoga!)
‘ Twas the night before Christmas – and all through HY:
There were yogis – in poses – in Ocean, and Sky.
In Earth, the riders (on RealRyders®!) – were spinning away,
…fitting (Christmas!) Cardio – into their day!
The props were all tucked – in their cubbyholes – with …
There are many ways that we identify ourselves, and sometimes it’s hard at times to dig deep and find out what makes us who we are. I was at a point where I was having trouble digging deep and finding who I was and what my purpose was. I had just graduated from Saint Mary’s, and was just laid off from a job I absolutely …Continue reading the article
Nick and I had moved to Williamswood 3 years ago and after driving past Halifax Yoga everyday, he suggested we check out a class. Nick had been doing yoga off and on for a number of years and I had tried it a couple of times, but I didn’t really enjoy it and figured it wasn’t my thing. I had never been one for going …Continue reading the article
The delivery of my first child did not go as planned. I will spare the details, but the end result was a C-section. The Doctor stated I was not to attempt a natural delivery if I were to have a second. Verbatim “No natural birthing for you.” Great bedside manner, I know. At that particular moment the announcement didn’t bother …Continue reading the article
Run a 10k; get the inner thigh gap, and fit into a size 2. That is happiness, right? That will make life perfect will it not? Eat clean, green and lean… that is the way, isn’t it?
While I would never go so far as to say that these are wrong I would not technically go so far as to say that are right, either.

I was out for a catch-up dinner with a girlfriend a few nights ago, and the conversation shifted to a recent purchase I just made. The words I spoke would have been completely foreign to me a few years earlier: “I bought a great pair of loafers the other day that work for my arthritis, fallen arch and bunion”. This is not a conversation I …Continue reading the article
Once upon a time, not too long ago, I was what some may identify as a perfectionist. You know, the girl who strives for ideals set up by society, has goals of what she thinks she should be doing, and living a life that seemed to fit the mould. Like many young women, I was struggling to find myself. Constantly overwhelmed by (but not …Continue reading the article
Seeing the look of pure joy on my daughter’s face as she moved into each pose was enough….
My three year old daughter watched my husband and I practice yoga in our living room for her whole life. So it wasn’t much of a surprise when she started mimicking the poses alongside of us. She took great pride in demonstrating poses to us …
