Nothing gives me more pleasure than a good old fashioned yoga pun! But what gives me even more pleasure is practicing yoga and knowing how to heal my body and mind with it.
Last weekend, I partnered with the Mexican Tourism Board to immerse myself in “Experience Mexico” in Ottawa, a cultural and celebratory event held in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Every day, more than 800 women die from pregnancy or child-birth related complications in developing countries. In Canada, that number is closer to 10 per 100,000 births in one year. It’s not even comparable.
Although our healthcare system is not perfect, we need to step back and be grateful that we live in a country where we have access to clean hospital beds, state-of-the-art technology, competent healthcare workers and to top it all off, these health services are covered by our provincial insurance plan.
Last week, Shoppers Drug Mart invited me for a complete women’s pampering weekend leading up to the “Love You” Run for Women on Sunday, May 7, 2017. If you were following along my Instagram stories, you would have seen that we checked into the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel, got made over ( by DIOR!!) at the SDM Beauty Gala inside the Rideau Centre, had dinner at Restaurant 18 and then I pampered myself with some of the products I received in my goody bag from Shoppers Drug Mart! And… I almost fainted when I received a note to pick up a free pair of Brooks running shoes at the Running Room. I can’t wait to break these bad boys in, after my surgery on June 7!
