20-20 Yoga & Meditation for Transformation is a free online 20 days of combined 20 minutes of movement and 20 minutes of meditation. You can access each day by clicking on the days above. This is a class for everyone, especially those who are ready to make lasting change in their lives. This includes those who have never tried yoga before and do not presently practice mediation – It is a safe place to start. It involves making daily transitions for overall transformation combing the power of mindfulness, movement and meditation. It can be done in consecutive days, or you can spread it out over weeks or months. As always in my teaching, this is your journey so you make your rules.
It is impossible to go through life without facing some sort of trauma. Some of those challenges are more impactful than others and can cause us to lack confidence in ourselves and lose sight of who we really are – and meant to be. These emotional, mental and/or physical traumas take their toll, preventing us from being able to do the things we used to. It is not all in your head – and yet in many ways it is. This is because as much as humans are proficient in finding ways to physically adapt, our mental and emotional adjustments can take awhile to catch up, which can lead a loss of identity and even depression.
Through experience, I know for sure that by combining a physical component with meditation and goal setting we can rediscover our true-selves – body, mind and soul – and continue to grow and adapt to our ever changing world in alignment.
Take time to feel and reconnect with yourself and the Universe, Spirit or God each day to help you maintain healthy connections with All, yourself and with others. No matter what aspect of wellness your goal or area of need is in, as you build the solid foundation of trust, you will not only notice your body grow stronger and healthier, but you will be able to clearly see the positive changes occur in every aspect of your life.
Remember to only do what feels right for you, your life and your body. Part of this challenge involves listening to yourself and honouring what your body tells you. You may choose to only do the meditation practice some days, and you can also split up the yoga and meditation and do one in the morning and one later in the day. Please read the disclaimer at the beginning of each video and be sure to check with your health care provider before starting this any new exercise program. Nothing said or recommended in this program is intended to replace professional advice or help.
It is beneficial to have a yoga mat (but you can modify if you don’t), two yoga blocks (or thick books), a blanket, a bolster (or pillows), a strap (or rope or belt) and a stool.

Mindfulness: Have you ever heard the parable of the men who were moving to a new village? Each one went to a wiseman to ask if he would be happy in his hew place. The wiseman asked the first man if he was happy in the village he lived in now. The man’s response was that he was not happy and the people were terrible. The wiseman told him he would not be happy in his new village. The second man was asked the same question and his response was that he was very happy in his old village and that the people were wonderful and he had many friends. The wiseman told him he would be very happy in his new village.
It is not possible to get to mid-life and not have experienced some sort of trauma; whether that be physical, emotional or mental. That is what makes us perfectly human. Exercise is proven to be medicinal for healing, but some disorders such as chronic fatigue syndrome, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – or a recovery of any kind, often requires times of less intensity and more gentleness.
On the path towards our dreams sometimes we must reconnect. The word stray is a significant word on this journey to our dreams. One of its synonyms is isolate, which is very telling as to what happens when we are lost in life. When one has wandered too far in a wrong direction there is a loss of connection with one’s self, others and the Universe – with God. Isolation leaves us vulnerable to become preyed upon and fall victim. And it can occur in any aspect of wellness.
