Spring 2017 kicks off a bit of a Canadian tour for me. March brought me to Toronto, a common weekend destination for me, as my sister and a good friend from high school live there. This time I was headed to the Toronto Yoga Conference, and it didn’t disappoint. I also had the change to try another delicious healthy restaurant, Kupfert and Kim.
Next on the list in April is Quebec City, one of the oldest cities in North America. I’ve visited once before, about ten years ago, and was totally charmed by the European feel. I’m on my way there now, and can’t wait to have what will be my first real vacation- no trainings, no teaching, nothing really planned besides some exploration and relaxation- in a very long time.
May will bring me to Victoria B.C., where I’ll be beginning my 300-hour yoga therapy training at Ajna Yoga studio, one of the first 11 studios in the world to be accredited by the International Association of Yoga Therapy for their program. This has been a long time goal of mine, so I’m excited to begin.
June will take me all the way to the other side of the country to the ‘birthplace of confederation’ just in time for Canada’s 150th birthday. I’ll be in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for a conference. This will be my first time travelling with work, and I hope to balance the busy conference activities with some time for soaking up the island vibes, eating some good seafood and checking out the yoga studios in the city.
I’ll also be sharing some of my favourite healthy spots and activities in Ottawa, my hometown. Over the past decade it has grown into an amazing wellness hub, with tons of healthy eating spots, a lively yoga community, and tons of outdoor activities year round.
Stay tuned for lots of wellness inspiration for Canadian destinations coast to coast!
