Yoga Heloise-style


Heloise Chong

Working out shouldn’t feel this good, speaks the guilty conscience. There should be more agony, or at least drudgery.

We’ve got it all wrong. The best exercise is when it doesn’t feel like suffering at all.

You may even think you’ve gone to heaven. Heloise, pronounced with the H silent, will take you there.

Don’t think it’s not unwinding the knot that is your body. At 23, Heloise comes out of a competitive gymnastics background. As you can see notably in her Crow’s pose.

Heloise Demonstrating The Crow

Diminutive Heloise, with one parent Chinese and the other French, has taught in Hong Kong, China and Toronto.

Heloise defines Namaste, the divine light in me sees the divine in you.

Come take her class at Panacea Studio. It’s divine.

Ciao, Pietro

Hockey Yoga

Be a little hungry all the time. If you can master the skill of being a little hungry always, and to quit eating just before you’re full, you’ll never have a weight problem. And you’ll experience many health benefits.

When a little hungry you’re in calorie burn mode. Many of us have a primal fear of this. It challenges our security. Residing on the borderline of security is actually the only real security we can have. Which seems counter-intuitive.

Be a little hungry. But don’t go into starvation mode because that’s when you do something stupid. Like downing a pizza before bed, or reloading your plate.

By learning this simple skill, you pass it on to your offspring.

Hockey yoga is coming Feb. 7. Taught by yours truly. It includes the Inversion Table for willing participants, aromatherapy, and incorporates stretching drills with regular yoga poses. Rest a assured, we languish in long lingering restorative postures. And, of course, the signature smoothie.

Work your spine back to an effortless Bridge.

This Friday it’s the hypnotic Heloise. Let me know you’re coming if you haven’t already.

Ciao, Pietro

Bull Crap

The cultural myth of aging…

Arthritis is a disease of the inactive, primarily. Nothing improves that condition more profoundly than good old fashioned exercise.

With proper exercise many diseases associated with aging are diminished, or disappear altogether. Heart disease too. Even the battle of the bulge is within the range of your due diligence.

Get back on the horse. A personal trainer provides structure, motivation, strategy, and a fresh perspective. If only beginning, or looking to liven things up, or if you have injuries complicating the process, a personal trainer makes all the difference.

Most people prefer the comfortable setting of a private studio to the anonymity of a gym. Panacea Studio doesn’t have the overhead of a gym. And encourages consistency with a better rate.

Let me know you’re coming to Yoga with Heloise this Friday? Or Saturday abs?

Ciao, Pietro
