keeping in touch.

Hi all!  I hope your 2015 is off to a good start and you are staying warm and cozy in the midst of a Canadian prairie winter.  A reminder that tomorrow (Friday, January 8th) is our Kirtan at 3-1200 Portage Ave, 6-8 pm ($10 suggested donation).  We look forward to enjoying some chanting and sacred sound with you!

To stay updated with events, consider subscribing to my newsletter – I promise not to spam your inboxes, and there will always be interesting tidbits of yoga/Ayurveda/Kirtan-related fun included!  You can add your email to the list here.

So to entice you, here is the first newsletter I sent out a few weeks ago, which includes the following clip of Christmas-themed Kirtan!  Oh, the nostalgia.

Stay warm, and see you soon!  Namaste.

wear your best flannel pajamas! :)


I’m really looking forward to this event: join me for a day of gentle yoga (suitable for all levels), yummy treats, and a discussion about how Ayurveda can help you thrive in winter.  We will do simple meditation practices that focus on cultivating deeper appreciation for our bodies and the food we nourish ourselves with.  Tickets are going fast, so check out the Prairie Yogi website to get yours!


A day of silence.

My yoga teacher Jonathan Austman is leading a day of silent practice on Sunday, January 18, 2015, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  There will be guided seated and walking meditation, yoga, and a deliciously Ayurvedic and vegetarian lunch prepared by moi!  If you are interested, please send Susan Claire (our lovely administrator and fellow practitioner) an email at: scjohnson43(at)yahoo(dot)com.  Space is limited, so consider registering early.  I hope you can join us for a contemplative day of study and practice.

I am so pleased to announce that I will be preparing the meals for a silent vipassana weekend retreat with Jonathan Austman at the Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre in Beausejour, Manitoba, October 3-5, 2014!  I am really looking forward to cooking nourishing and calming food for our students as they endeavour to deepen their practice.  Registration and more details to come soon!
