I am never alone wherever I am. The air itself supplies me with a century of love. When I breathe in, I am breathing in the laughter, tears, victories, passions, thoughts, memories, existence, joys, moments, and the hues of the sunlight on many tones of skin; I am breathing in the same air that was exhaled by many before me. The air that bore them life. And so how can I ever say that I am alone?

Celebrates your You-niqueness
All levels welcome.

 


Yoga should not be daunting or inaccessible. Yoga is for every age, body type, belief system, every mobility issue, lifestyle and purpose.... But sometimes it can feel exclusionary - unattainable to those with normal bodies and lives and everything that comes with it. 

  • If you can breathe - you can do yoga. The poses are one piece of an 8 limb practice that can guide you to a balanced existence.
  • If you are willing to be open to the possibility that you can let go of limiting beliefs and allow that small changes can happen in the present moment - you can do yoga.
  • If you know deep inside that working every day and completing all your to do lists is a very small part of what  life is about - you can do yoga.
  • Whatever the reason.....guess what? - you can do yoga.

Whether you are in Vancouver or farther afield, younger or older, male or female, need to sit in a chair or lie on the floor, have been practicing for years or have no idea what "practice" is, come visit Ocean Breath and STOP rushing past your life. Instead, take a step into living fully in each moment of your life, free of stress, aches, weakening bodies and reconnecting to what really matters to you.

Namaste [Na (Not) Ma (Me) Te (You)]

Spring has sprung, the grass is ris....

...now it's time to breathe and live. Spring is the reemergence of life. The maiden in her bright colours dancing like a happy breeze under soft showers surrounded by every shade of green (The colour of the heart chakra) It is the birthing of nature, of creatures, of ideas and creativity. Just as the plants push up from the earth, we also start to reemerge from our homes like new shoots searching for sun. This newness takes energy and nourishment. You need to feed your body with movement as much as food, your mind with silence as much as brain games, your heart self kindness as much as blood. Don't let this time of growth wear you down, instead use the energy of the season to feed you and make sure that what grows will sustain you.
If you grow deep roots and supple bodies, the storms of life will bend you, not break you. 

Beverly is happy to set up private lessons. This is her strength, working with individuals and helping them recognize how their bodies work, by understanding how the smallest changes can make the biggest differences.
