Don't take it personally!

"Whatever happens around you, don't take it personally..Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves." ~ Don Miguel Ruiz

DRINK MORE WATER!!! YOUR BODY NEEDS IT TO DO EVERYTHING BETTER! Minimum intake should be 1/2 your body weight in ounces. i.e. - if you weigh 150 lbs., you should drink 75 oz. of water a day. If you drink sugary drinks, coffee, tea, etc., you need even more water to counter the dehydrating effects they have on your body.

Start seeing how great your life is!

You Rock!

We love being your teachers!

Seeing our students progress is so rewarding!

I Choose Me!

What if everyone lived by the motto: "I choose me!" ?

Then everyone would know they were taking full responsibility for their life and that everyone else was doing the same.

It all begins with you! When you honor yourself, everyone else in your life does the same.

Choose "you" in every choice, in every moment and see what beautiful relationships unfold and how fabulous life can be!

What a beautiful yoga community you are!

If you're not feeling good, DRINK MORE WATER!


It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. We publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water
2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute
3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours
5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.
The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/reduce main diseases:
1. High Blood Pressure (30 days)
2. Gastric (10 days)
3. Diabetes (30 days)
4. Constipation (10 days)
5. Cancer (180 days)
6. TB (90 days)

7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily. This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.
It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain. For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.
Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.
It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A Bright Smile!

I've been swishing my teeth with sesame oil in the morning before I brush my teeth for about 5-10 minutes. It should turn watery and white. It moisturizes my mouth especially during the seasonal change to more dry weather and is really great for your teeth not to mention a real WHITENER. It works! I have a feeling if I did this everyday, I would not ever need to see a dentist. It's supposed to detoxify your body too! - Shalan

Shalan Loves Yoga!

I do love yoga! Did ya'll know that about me? For me, yoga is a way to know myself more, to feel better, to move through limitations, to get focused, get present. When I teach, I am at my strongest. My vibrational signal gets so amped and Divinity just pours through me! It's my favorite! I'm starting to feel that same power more consistently in other areas of my life too, and I really love that! Keep growing, it hurts not to! - Shalan Hill

So what do you do when your yoga practice leads you to intense irritation?

It's the releasing of what is stored in your body. If you allow it to come forth then you can let it go. When you let go of those emotions that you have stuffed, then there is a clearing in your body and you experience more freedom (from pain, from stiffness, from discomfort...)

Thank you all for coming to play with us and sharing us with your friends & family!  HOLLAH! Holiday Open House, Saturday, November 12. 

Gracie, our mascot, went to live on a sheep farm!

Gracie, our mascot & dog, has moved on to greener pastures to live with a dog trainer/sheep farmer to reprogram some aggressive tendencies. We couldn't ask for better for our pup! She's going to live with a pack of dogs and will surely be even happier than with us! Great creating!  We did a dog swap and that's how we met Kirby! Gracie says she loves all her fans and to not be afraid of change, because it can surely lead to more freedom! Thank You!

A Traditional Yoga Studio That's All About Your Now!

We love yoga!  Speaking for our team, our own practices have brought such continued opportunities for freedom in all areas of our lives.  Our own experience sparks our passion to share this practice with others.

As a traditional yoga studio, we choose our primary offering of yoga classes influenced by that which has been handed down from generation to generation of yoga enthusiasts.  However, we are much more interested in what is happening in our NOW.

NOW is where we all are creating our world!  NOW is where we can let go of our past, anything that doesn't serve us.  We are evolving beings and we continue to grow and sometimes we need to let go of patterns and traditions that are no longer useful to us.

Opening to your NOW allows freer movement forward with less resistance.
