every WOMAN workshop leader

Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.  ~Carol Welch

This past weekend I had the opportunity to be a workshop leader at Every WOMAN Powell River. I hope everyone enjoyed the sample of yoga. My workshop was first thing in the morning, a perfect way to start the day.

The whole day was filled with inspiring workshops. I took in pilates, nai, Qigong, African drumming, belly dancing, meditation and made time to relaxed in the tea lounge. The lunch and snacks were tasty and seemed to never run out.

Thank you, Kerri and Lynn, for organizing which a memorable, action packed day. I don’t think I’ve stopped shimming my shoulders yet, thanks for the moves Mara. 🙂

For those that couldn’t make it, here’s the link to a slideshow (click here), created by a local photographer. I’m in the drumming segment, to the right of the lady in pink, my good friend Erin.

Supplements at a glance

A link to this cool site was sent to me few weeks back and I’ve been back to it a few times now. I really like how fun it looks and the bits of information it shares. Are the supplements you’re taking worth it? Find out here.

Jamie Oliver :: TED Talks

Sticking with a food theme for March, Jamie Oliver was awarded the 2010 TED Prize Winner, earlier this month. There’s so much about him that I like; his cookbooks are fabulously designed, I love my Jamie Oliver pots and pans, and watch him on the telly when I can. His passion for kids and food is inspiring. In the past few years he has really brought to light the problem with the food industry and school food programs and that’s what he address in his talk.

One of my favourite Jamie recipes is Tray baked chicken Maryland. It’s chicken breast stuffed with banana, wrapped in pancetta and baked in cream and corn. It may sound odd but it’s delicious.  CLICK HERE for the recipe. (I’m sorry, I didn’t take a picture after it was cooked.)

March is Nutrition month

Spring is nearing and I’m finding my cravings are changing with the weather. It’s going from stew and pastas to stir-fries and salads.
