What’s New in 2017

Happy New Year!!
Holiday cheer at the HappyTree staff party!
May 2017 bring exciting changes and new adventures to your life!
Sonya is on maternity leave!
Our beloved Sonya Beaudoin and Brian Tuck are certainly both embracing new beginnings this year: Sonya has started her maternity leave and Brian has taken the leap of faith to become a flight attendant and travel the world!
Bram Levinson is also focusing on travel and writing his new book; he will remain an important part of our Tree by offering workshops and participating as a guest teacher in our 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training (which only has one spot left by the way – it’s not too late to apply!). Though we will miss seeing them every week, we couldn’t be happier for them as they each enter a new and exciting chapter of their life!
I personally have never been more proud of what we are offering you this coming year. In line with new beginnings, we have hand-picked some of the best teachers from around the city to join our stellar team,
Evolve your practice with Barrie
including Barrie Risman who comes to us with over 20 years of teaching experience and who has led teacher trainings and workshops throughout Canada and internationally, since 2004. You can now take her class at HappyTree on Fridays from 4:30-6:00 pm and you will be able to join her Backbends Master Class and Evolving Your Yoga series this spring.
Meditation with Dawn Mauricio
We are also welcoming seasoned master yoga teachers Dawn Mauricio, Carina Raisman and Dr. Bali for our new series of Master Classes. Each two-and-a-half hour class will be a marvelous opportunity to those who are thirsting to learn more and go deeper into their practice – whether it’s through meditation with Dawn, anatomy with Carina, or by discovering the famous Dr. Bali method. All levels are welcome.
Kundalini with Shabad
To help you explore yoga “outside the box”, we have a fantastic lineup of brand new series. Learn different styles of meditation with me, apply yoga philosophy to your life with Bhaskar and take a journey into consciousness through Kundalini Yoga with renowned teacher Shabad Saroop Singh Kalsa. To make it through the dark days of February, take Susan’s iRest Yoga Nidra series and to maximize your vitality this spring, learn about Ayurveda with Dominic.
We are pleased to announce that Mom (or Dad!) and Baby Yoga and Prenatal Yoga are now drop-in classes on our regular schedule and our new Family Yoga 6-class card gets you into both! We have new dates for Jenny Berthiaume’s Yoga Birthing workshops and if you are interested in learning to teach Prenatal and Kids Yoga, we have trainings coming up this winter and spring with Amanda de Grace from Little Lotus Yoga and Jenny!
Last but not least, I am thrilled to annouce our first HappyTree Yoga Retreat in Marrakech, Morocco!! Embrace adventure and join me, Bhaskar and Spiritual Master Lisa Lajoie half a world away on the trip of a lifetime, March 25th-April 1st.
HappyTree Retreat in Morocco!
You can also catch Bhaskar and I at Expo Yoga, February 11-12, or join me in Magog for a Yin Yoga workshop at Lyne St Roch. Follow me on instagram and join the #defiexpoyoga challenge of 10 yoga poses over 10 days from January 10-19!
I look forward to sharing our new schedule, plenty of good vibes and our love of yoga with you this vibrant and happy New Year!
Love and hugs,
