I guess at some point, I just got tired of apologizing for who I am. The yoga was actually asking me to look for all the things that were wrong, in the pursuit of BEing better. I was too loud, too outspoken, too passionate, too 'strong', too inquisitive, too critical. I have been told to embrace my vulnerabilities, to 'give it up', to simmer down. There have been times when yoga hasn't been kind. Now, to be fair, after fourteen years of practice, I still believe with all my heart that yoga is actually perfect. But it's the interpretation that gets messy. I was once asked by a teacher in an advanced training, in front of a room of other students, when I was going to 'give up the act'. His teachings were filled with inconsistencies and I wanted him to explain. In that moment, I was confused, rejected, humiliated and hot with anger. He looked at me smugly. Was I supposed to give up being who I am to be a ‘good’ yogi? I was so stunned, I said nothing (a very rare occurrence for me). Right after, I had the most powerful experience in yoga nidra. My whole being vibrated with purpose and clarity. I knew the calling. I knew the teaching. Be a stand for strength. Be a stand for confidence. Be a stand for humour and light-heartedness. Be a stand for the goof balls. Be a stand for rubbing against the status quo. Be a stand for believing in something with all your heart. Be a stand for these things that are already in me, so that others could find them in themselves. (I"m actually pretty sure that teacher would say that's not what he was getting at ha, ha). I got up from my practice, I left, and never went back. And promised myself that as a yoga teacher I would never do anything but help people feel better about who they are, and teach them how to be a stand for themselves. Can we stop for moment and celebrate what is GREAT about the person we are? If you were to ask your closest people, 'what is it about me that you love?', what would they say? Can we talk about that? Self-love is more than just facials, bubble baths and stretching our hamstrings friends. Self-love is SELF LOVE! So this year, my retreats are themed All heart, No Filter. And boy do I mean it. This summer, we will dive deep into the essence of who we are and how to bring it with authority, to step into who you are more fiercely than ever. I have been doing this work with organizations for years. Now it's time to do it with all of you. 2019 Retreat dates are up on the website! Registration opens Saturday. Let's Go. ~💛 Shauna http://www.okanaganyogaretreats.com #okanaganyogaretreats #allheartnofilter

*for our Okanagan friends, or those planning on being here Aug. 29* I (Shauna) co-founded The Lit from Within Project four years ago because I believe so fundamentally in the power of yoga to help those who are suffering. Like so many, my family has been rocked by the devastation of mental illness and addiction. We wanted to provide service in the capacity we knew how. I'm really proud to say that Lit has been funding weekly yoga and meditation classes for those recovering from addiction and struggling with mental illness ever since. Three classes per week at Canadian Mental Health Association, Kelownaand two classes per week at Foundry Kelowna. Lit pays caring, committed yoga teachers trained to work specifically with these special students, so that they can begin to reconnect with themselves on a deeper level safely and incredibly supported. I am SOOO grateful to the hundreds of yogi's and non-yogi's who have practiced with us at these special events over the years. Without our community, we have nothing. If you are free to give your time and surrender your hamstrings for just a little while on Weds. Aug. 29, I promise you won't regret it. No yoga experience necessary. Just an open mind and a good sense of humour. I am co-teaching with my beautiful friends, Pam Rader (co-founder) and Carol Ann Domanko (Lit teacher) from Shift Power Yoga. Please join us.

Over the years, more than a few people have said they would love to come on one of these retreats, but they're not good at 'yoga'. They're talking about the stretching part. :) Sure, we do that, but it's only as a gateway to accessing the better stuff. Yoga is the practice of connection, and we all desperately need more of it. On retreats, we practice connection to our bodies, hearts, minds and spirit. We practice connection to the total awesomeness in nature and all its exquisitely perfect wisdom. We practice connection to each other through heartfelt conversations, being free to be vulnerable, silly, or goofy or whatever. We practice connection to our self, letting go of who we 'have' to be for long enough to remember who we really are and actually being cool with that person exactly as she or he is. It's why we have so many guests coming back year after year!!! (because trust me, if it was all about the state of your hamstrings, no one would come back, lol!) So, don't stress about the stretching bit... I'm a good teacher, I promise you will be just fine! Come for the other stuff - the yoga. I have only have 3 SPOTS LEFT for my Lead with Your Heart retreats for 2018. They are all on the Aug 31 - Sep weekend. *Group of 3 booking together, 2 bdrm suite in the lodge - $675 per person. *Group of 2 booking together, shared Studio in the lodge - $695 per person *Single - private studio in Lodge - $899 All prices include EVERYTHING. Love, s All the details - http://www.okanaganyogaretreats.com/predator-ridge-2018/

*Spots have been taken* TWO SPOTS just opened up in Ryan's SOLD OUT retreat May 11 - 13!!! There's a reason his first ever Okangan Yoga Retreat sold out so quickly.

*2018 RETREATS ARE 75% SOLD OUT * It's been pretty foggy and gray in K-town these past few weeks. Most of Canada seems to be ping ponging back and forth between extreme cold and s*&^ tons of snow. Definitely a good time to book some sunshine and savasana. A little piece of heaven awaits at Predator Ridge Resort. Here is what's still available: May 11 - 13 w/ Ryan Leier >> 7 spots left June 15 - 17 w/ Shauna >> SOLD OUT Aug 24 - 26 w/ Shauna >> 5 spots left Aug 31 - Sep 2 w/ Shauna >> 11 spots left Stay warm friends. Love, s
This morning I went to a heated yoga practice led by Ryan Leier. Such a kind, funny, fiery spirit. It felt good to be warm. To to let go of the rigidity of frigidity 😉. I often teach that being strong or flexible or balanced is so much more than just physical; they are a state of the citta (heart-mind). On this chilly day, as we dig out from this crazy snow storm, in a world where there is so much frigidity and rigidity... maybe we can also consider ‘warm’ as a state of being. Burning intention. Fired in spirit. Warm thoughts. Warm heart. Stay warm. 🔥💛 - - Ryan will be leading with his big lion heart for @okanaganyogaretreats at @predatorridge in May 2018, already half full.
