Hi everyone! I hope you all have been enjoying a great summer so far. I’m excited to be guest-teaching the chanting module at a yoga teacher training hosted by Harmony Tree Yoga Studio in Morden, Manitoba! They are a lovely little yoga studio in southern Manitoba, an hour or so outside of Winnipeg. Please join me for an evening of Mantra yoga philosophy and chanting on Friday, July 17th, 2015. Check out www.harmonytreestudio.com for more details! Om Shanti Om!
The lovely Natasha Lenon and I are leading a weekend yoga retreat at Hecla Island Resort on October 16-18, 2015! Located in the beautiful Hecla Grindstone Provincial Park, we will enjoy a nourishing weekend of yoga, kirtan, and meditation. There will be time to relax and soak in the Salka mineral pools, and spa services will also be available (click here for more information). The resort is a short 2 hour drive from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and sits on the edge of beautiful Lake Winnipeg.
To secure your spot, payment in full can be given to Natasha or I. Please make cheques payable to Adrienne Shum. Limited space is available! If you have any questions, please email Natasha (email@example.com) or me (firstname.lastname@example.org). We hope you can join us for a calming and restful weekend of practice and self-care.
Here it is! Thanks to the technical prowess of my intrepid partner, David Quiring, we have for you a live recording of a Kirtan we did this past winter!
Whether you chant along or simply listen, I hope this recording allows you to soak up the wonderful energy of that night and enjoy the beauty of chanting. A huge amount of gratitude to those of you who lent your voices to that evening’s practice!
As the record is live, it has its unpolished moments – which I think is a fitting reminder that life is never perfect, but a continual process.

We hope you enjoy it!
The wheel of time keeps turning, and despite the blanket of snow outside, spring is coming! At this time of year, I love seeing the neighbourhood squirrels become more active as the days get longer – with their biological clocks tuned into the rhythms of nature, they become more lively with increasing daylight and the coming warmth. Sometimes in the busyness of urban life we forget that we too are the same way; luckily yoga and its related practices remind us of our true nature. To welcome the seasonal change, we will be doing a Kirtan at Yoga Public on the Spring Equinox, Friday March 20th (7-9 pm, $10). As usual, my better half David Quiring will be accompanying my harmonium with his djembe. “Bolo” is the Sanskrit word for “chant/proclaim” – so please join us to do just that!
