Yes! Finally...yogagurl at Home...
yogagurl is all about cultivating community and connection...When the government mandated temporary closure of yoga studios, our newly located studio at Alton Arts Mill in Caledon was also impacted. We quickly pivoted and on March 17 launched online Classes as our way to be of service to the community when so many faced uncertainty from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We offered sliding scale for those who lost their jobs and Wednesday nights complimentary to the community --- Online Yoga. This was a great way to connect online even though we couldn't connect in person. We also had a Monday morning, Thursday night, and Saturday class. My regulars stayed on and yes some didn't go for the online option and fell off the bandwagon. I noticed the students that stayed with their practice on Zoom developed a resilience and positive attitude and seemed to be empowered around their health --- in body, mind, and spirit. I too noticed the weekly classes provided a normality and community and were the glue that held us together in these uncertain times.
While the classes in-person have moved outside next to the waterfall at Alton Arts Mills in August & September, we also continued on Zoom. We have now found a new online home where we are creating our online studio and are excited to welcome back past students and new students alike. In addition, we're introducing an annual 12 month course to stay inspired, accountable and cultivate deeper connection and support while having a chance to hit the reset button on your health and mindset and create long term sustainable wellness habits.
We hope our new 12 month course (which includes weekly yoga and monthly holistic living topics to get you on track and stay inspired!) will reach our past students, but also span the globe and touch many more lives by empowering women and men as everyday leaders in yoga and holistic living. We’ve had past participants in our yoga and coaching from as far as Egypt, New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Bali, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, all across Canada and the US! We’ve received daily emails and social media posts on how Alex's Holistic philosophy is a vital support to so many and we wish to build this on our new online platform in this challenging time.
We recently launched yogagurl on Namastream. Here you will find recorded classes and meditations when you sign up for our 12 month Mentorship Program.
We will continue to build on this offering over time and add more recorded classes and workshops.

Winter can teach us to play and have fun and to connect with nature all year round. Most of all right now the ice and snow on the trees and their ability to withstand such temperatures and weight are a testament to the trees incredible resilience and tenacity. There is a lot of wisdom and beauty in the winter landscape and snowy days! I've found the key is to embrace the winter and play in it and it will become your best friend!
If you need a little inspiration I have just the cure!
Join us this Sat for good ol' fashioned Winter Fun at the 10th Annual Alton Mill Fire & Ice Festival 2020.
