Storytelling is the most ancient tool of the healer.  Since the beginning of human kinds adventure here on earth, people have been gathering together to hear and tell their own and their culture’s healing stories. Understanding these ancient teaching stories can help us begin to see our lives as part of a greater story, encouraging us to take responsibility for the parts we choose to play.

Yin Yoga is a supported practice, it uses relaxed muscles, and the support of blocks and cushions as needed to help open and support you.  It is a deep acting style of Yoga, helping to create true flexibility.Biff Mithoefer is a world traveling Yin Yoga teacher.  He is much loved for his compassion and knowledge about Yoga and is a great teacher.

Fall and winter classes in charlottetown and souris

 Yoga Styles Offered:

Check the schedule for details of what style is offered on which night and location.  Classes run year round with occasional breaks when Ruth/Atmabir goes off island to host or attend trainings and workshops.


Blend: Yang and Yin: for people with some experience, lots of detail, open the heart and find the light within to power the practice. Sometimes the class is a slow moving flow and sometimes it is in workshop format.


Blend Yang and Yin Basics: for people new to yoga or those wanting to stay at a basic level. Slower pace, short flows, finding your way in each posture.  Yang style has more energy using the navel centre and movement while Yin uses supports and long holds to develop true flexibility.


The Asanas of Astanga: once a month or so a "power yoga" flow for experienced yoga practitioners. Enjoy the heat both inside and out. A flowing practice fueled by Ujjayibreath. The other weeks will be some flow and some slow, detailed work to really understand what is happening in the asanas


Kundalini Yoga – a spiritual and enlightening mix of meditation, mudra (intentional hand action), chanting, breath (pranayama), and physical action. This Yoga needs to be experienced! Let it help fast track you on the path to your joyful True Self.

Yoga Kitchen

Conscious cooking and mindful eating are excellent complements to Yoga.  
At my winter workshops and Teacher Trainings, light, nutritious and home-made foods are popular. This winter, one of the favourites was a light and creamy non-dairy dessert:
"Pecan Mousse"
dairy-free, gluten-free,
1 cup shelled pecans
hot water to cover
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
solid part of a large can of coconut milk (I like Thai Kitchen organic). Chill the can to help the "milk" separate
1. Put pecans in a blender and add hot water to just cover.  Set aside for 30-60 minutes.
2. After soaking, add maple syrup and vanilla, blend until smooth.
3. Add the solid coconut milk and blend until silky smooth.
(the liquid can be used in soups).
4. Scrape the mousse out of the blender into a glass or ceramic bowl and chill.
Can be refrigerated for several days. Serve in small bowls with tiny spoons and shaved dark chocolate on top.
While the pecans are soaking put together the following, easy to make, colourful, and delicious casserole.  Good with squash soup and a green salad .
Spinach Carrot "Souffle
egg-free and can be dairy-free
9x9 glass pan, serves 6-8
preheat oven to 350 F.
4 cups (packed) grated carrots
1 cup chopped onion
1 Tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried
2 packages of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed fairly dry (OR 2 pounds of  fresh that has been chopped very fine.
1 cup ground almonds
1 cup (optional) feta cheese (or goat paneer if you want to have less salt)
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Saute the carrots in olive oil until bright orange, set aside in a large bowl.
Saute the onions in olive oil until translucent.  When just about done, add the basil and black pepper (and fresh spinach, if using).
Add to the carrots.
Add ground almonds, and cheese if using.
Mix thoroughly. Oil the glass pan and pack the mixture into it. Bake one hour until golden.
