granola bars and other foods.

Thanks so much to everyone that came to the Om Nom Nom Nourish workshop at the Prairie Yogi studio this weekend!  It was so lovely to share the practices of yoga and Ayurveda with you.  If you are looking for the recipes for the Winter Sun Granola Bars and the Pumpkin Ginger Cranberry Snack Bars that I made for the workshop, please visit my food blog at

Until next time, may you keep eating and living well!

Thanks to everyone that came out to Jonathan Austman’s Day of Silence this weekend!  It was an honour to cook for you and support you in your practice.  For those of you interested in recipes, they will (slowly!) be posted up on my food blog, over the next little while.

If you are wondering what we ate, this was the oh-so-Sattvic menu:

Carrot+squash+ginger soup
Beet+black rice+parsley+zureshk+orange salad
Chickpeas+potatoes+cilantro+lemon salad
Homemade sourdough+butter
Gluten-free vegan lemon squares
Homemade herbal tea blends

So if you are ever deliberating on doing a meditation retreat with Jonathan, be rest assured that you will be well-fed if I am there!  Cheers to happy hearts and happy bellies!

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!

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!
