I adore my neighborhood of 11 years at Woodbine and Danforth, aka “The Danny”. I love that I can walk out to pretty much every amenity and service that I need right within blocks of my home, many of them among the best in the city. I love the commitment of my neighbors to creating a better place to live for everyone, in ways big and small (thank you Danforth East Community Association!). I love that I know and greet my neighbors and local business owners by name. Plus, the food – the East Lynn Farmers Market, Basil Thai Kitchen, Celena’s Bakery, Moberly Natural Foods, Relish, Caketown, Melanie’s…
It was a loooong time coming, but thanks to the vision of Isabelle Bouchard we also have a yoga studio in the ‘hood! I’m pleased as punch to be joining the regular schedule at Ankh Yoga this fall, with a Hatha Smooth class on Saturdays from 4:00-5:00pm.
Perfect whether you are winding down from a busy day of errands and kids lessons or gearing up for your Saturday night out. Grounded in the Hatha Yoga tradition, to help your energy flow smoothly and sweetly. Gentle openers to bring you back home to your body and breath, sun salutations moving into a short standing flow, seated and restorative poses to slow things down. Options offered for all levels throughout the practice. Every class features a short meditation and delicious svasana.
Owner and Kundalini Yoga teacher Isabelle has crafted a simple yet perfect neighborhood boutique studio, with thought devoted to every detail. I hope you will join me – and your neighbors! – at a class in the near future.
