It doesn't have to be complicated. This is my yoga space today. Honestly, there is a laundry basket of clothes waiting to be folded and dirty dishes in the kitchen sink. It's not always pretty and perfect but it is exactly what I need now. My space to be me, perfectly imperfect. Sometimes we need to be reminded of that. It's not always how we show up...rather that we show up at all. Today I choose me and what I need. No judgement, no expectations. This brings me joy. What are you doing today or this week that's just for you? What makes you happy and brings you joy?

Looking for a yoga class with a twist? Yoga and myo fascial release is a great way to get into those tight muscles with some therapy balls. Leave the class feeling lighter with a greater range of motion. DM to book a private class or small group class. I'm mobile and can come to you.

Thank you so much Kristin Brancati for having me. I had a great time. What a great group!

Me: Hey God.

God: Hello, my love.

Me: I'm falling apart.
Can you put me back together?

God: I would rather not.

Me: Why?

God: Because you aren't a puzzle.

Me: What about all of the pieces of my life that are falling down onto the ground?

God: Let them stay there for a while. They fell off for a reason.
Take some time and decide if you need any of those pieces back.

Me: You don't understand! I'm breaking down!

God: No - you don't understand.
You are breaking through.
What you are feeling are just growing pains.
You are shedding the things and the people in your life that are holding you back.
You aren't falling apart.
You are falling into place.
Relax.
Take some deep breaths and allow those things you don't need anymore to fall off of you.
Quit holding onto the pieces that don't fit you anymore.
Let them fall off.
Let them go.

Me: Once I start doing that, what will be left of me?

God: Only the very best pieces of you.

Me: I'm scared of changing.

God: I keep telling you - YOU AREN'T CHANGING!! YOU ARE BECOMING!

Me: Becoming who?

God: Becoming who I created you to be!
A person of light and love and charity and hope and courage and joy and mercy and grace and compassion.
I made you for more than the shallow pieces you have decided adorn yourself with that you cling to with such greed and fear.
Let those things fall off of you.
I love you! Don't change! Become! Become! Become!
Become who I made you to be.
I'm going to keep telling you this until you remember it.

Me: There goes another piece.

God: Yep. Let it be.

Me: So...I'm not broken?

God: No - but you are breaking like the dawn. It's a new day. Become!! Become!!

The life you want to grow into, will ask you to gather and reclaim ingredients you may have lost along the way.
Your voice,
your truth,
your choice,
your bravery,
your boundaries and your care.
Learn to recognise these things,
to find them and gather them from your heart and belly.
With these ingredients of inner power held strongly in your being, you can grow towards a life more attuned with your heart.

Any one else feeling like they need a little or a whole lot of support lately??? Leaning into these branches letting my entire body feel supported was very much needed. I've been rather quiet lately. Focusing on what I really need; what my body really needs. When you thrive on being in control, planning and routine and that all goes up in smoke it's a lot to process and it hasn't been easy. So for now, I'm taking it one day at a time. One breath at a time. Here's your daily reminder to take a breath in and exhale. Now do it again releasing your shoulders, the space between your brows. Do it as many times as you need. Listen to your body and what you need and if you can get outside in nature you might find the answers amongst the whispers in the trees.

Needed this reminder today 🌠
Maybe you need it too. If all you do today is breathe that's ok. Listen to the subtle signs of your body and what it needs. If you need to rest, rest. I have to remind myself that rest is not a bad thing.

I can't believe it's almost Easter weekend. 2021 seems to be flying by with virtual learning, schools and businesses opening and closing it can sometimes be difficult to find our footing. We were hoping to begin offering in person classes again in the spring but with the possibility of further lockdowns we have decided to wait a little longer until we can gather safely once again. In the meantime I've been thinking of offering a virtual yin, gentle flow or restorative class. Which would you like to see? Would you prefer a live class or an emailed link to access the class when you have time? Let me know in the comments below.
I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who has reached out asking when I will be back to in person teaching and where. I smile everytime I open a message like this.
If you are looking for private classes or private group classes send me a message. I am booking in July, virtually. I am hoping to offer a few outdoor classes over the summer so keep an eye out on this page. We do not have a date for in person classes at the healing lodge yet but we do have a wait list for when we start offering those classes. If you already sent me your name you are still on the list. Can't wait to see you all in person again!

Awww, my facebook memories! Last year at this time we were taking reservations for our Wellness Day fundraiser for DIFD πŸ’œ
Many women coming together to offer their gifts in support of youth mental health. It's incredible to see what can be accomplished when people put their minds together.

We are hoping to start our classes and rebook the private group bookings that had to be cancelled due to covid,in the spring. Over the next 2 days we plan on posting pictures from our classes and fundraisers from the last 2 years. Keep an eye on our stories. If you've taken photos at any of our classes, workshops, events or private classes and want to share, even if it's just your toes by the fire before class, please send it our way so we can include them.

Happy Valentine's Day and Family Day weekend πŸ’š

Oh how I miss these days! Missing the yogi life. Teaching yoga at Mama Goddess in person. It has almost been a year since I've taught in person classes. I was in the middle of teaching a 5 week class package when covid hit. We had a DIDF fundraiser wellness day planned and I had hot stone restorative classes booked. Just like that everything came to a screeching halt. I was lucky enough to teach classes in September with all the new health and safety measures in place before we were shut down again. I hope one day soon we will be able to see each other in person. Until then be kind, be safe.

My friend pointed out yesterday (Bell let's talk day) how amazing it was to see so many people sharing their experiences, their truths and in return people posting so much love in the comments and sharing their stories as well. I couldn't agree more. I read so many kind, loving, uplifting comments yesterday my heart was full of gratitude. Now, close your eyes, take a breath and imagine a world where this happened on a regular basis. A world where we can talk openly about how we feel and be held in a safe place. That's the world I want to live in. That's the world I want my children, nieces and nephew to live in. So be kind everyday. You never know what someone is going through πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’œ

I've been a little quiet lately. Taking time to process, heal and really let my emotions flow over me with no expectation or judgment. Let's just say that's a work in progress πŸ˜‰

We are a picky bunch at my place but I've made this maple apple pear oatmeal and it's been a big hit. I love the grab and go (to virtual learning because there's no where else to be) breakfast. It's from one of my fav cookbooks Oh She Glows. I make it the night before, place it in the fridge overnight and stick it in the oven first thing in the morning to bake. Bonus* the house smells heavenly all morning. Link to recipe in the comments πŸ‘‡πŸΌ feel free to add links to your favourite recipe in the comments and let me know if you enjoy it!

Hi. My name is Chantal Ouellette. I was introduced to yoga over 16 years ago. After attending my first class I was hooked. Practising yoga has calmed my mind, strengthened my body and fed my soul. Yoga meets you where you are and accepts you in all your forms. This is what I share with my students. I enjoy teaching Yin, Restorative and Hot Stone Restorative yoga. I am a mother of 3 and a Registered Early Childhood Educator and enjoy teaching yoga to children of all ages. Although I teach and practice at home, I also attend yoga classes around the city. I simply cannot get enough. Find your breath, balance and relaxation during a group or private practice. Offering mobile Yoga practices throughout Ottawa at your location or mine in Ottawa South.

Wanted thank Chantal for a fantastic 1 hour Yoga class in my backyard. As a group of 6 women we are always looking for new and fun ideas to share together. Backyard Yoga on a warm beautiful night was great! We all felt amazing and.....slept like babies last night! Definitely looking forward to planning another class in the future....thank you!
What are you doing on Bell Let's Talk day? Please join us for this inspiring event.
The other night at our house.....
This Saturday, in the sacred space of the Misiwe Ni Relations Healing Lodge, we dedicate time to holding space for ourselves, listening to our bodies and what it needs and celebrating the Goddess within. Come for 1 class or all 3. (Discount will be provided for 2 or more classes) Take some much deserved time for you! ~Hot Stone Restorative Yoga 1-3 pm (please register by 8pm tonight. No drop ins) ~Yin with Intention (take home crystal) 3:30-4:45 ~Restorative Yoga by the fire 5-6pm
This week I completed 2 private sessions. Chantel did an amazing job putting together a routine involving area specific stretches with the use of myofascial release balls and straps. This therapy has worked wonders for the pain I have been experiencing in my hips and contracted muscles. I could feel a sense of fluid physical motion during and after the sessions. Ending the class with hot stones sent some love and relaxation to areas that had been worked on. I am looking forward to practicing some of these stretches at home to continue feeling the results......Thank you!
Had a fantastic hot stone yoga/self care session yesterday with the wonderful ladies of CO Yoga. I’ll miss you over the summer. See you in the fall.
Thanks so much CO Yoga for my beautiful new water bottle and yoga strap. Just in time for this beautiful warm weather we are finally having. Love love love it!!!
#DIFDRoyalOttawa Thanks for the fantastic practice!
Hey Suki Okorofsky! My sister is teaching yoga in Ottawa! Check it out!
I'm sure those are hot stones for yoga but I just want to paint them!
