The Power of PJ’s

It all started with my young children on Christmas Eve.  We had a tradition that they were able to open one small gift on that special night.  The gift was always a new pair of cozy PJ’s.  Fast forward 7 years…my children are now teens.  They are taller than me and they think they are smarter than me.  But one thing hasn’t changed, they still enjoy opening a gift of PJ’s on Christmas Eve! It is hard to believe that this will be our 7th year collecting PJ’s for the C...

CSY Book Club – A New Community

  We were excited to put together a book list, choose charities to match each book selection and then to finally present the idea of a new CSY Book Club to our studio community.  The book club idea was received with enthusiasm and excitement. Everyone thought it was a great idea and then the voting started. We selected five pairs of books.  Everyone who wished, had the opportunity to vote for a pairing (and the charity that was matched).  Voting was open for a month.  Finally the votes were...

Every Child Should Have A New Pair of PJ’s For Christmas

This will be Bowman’s fifth year organizing the drive, which she founded. And she is not alone in her efforts as the community has rallied behind the cause. In the past, local hockey teams, dance studios, grade scho...

Calling All Book Lovers… Introducing The CSY Book Club

Every Spring the CSY Community pulls together and enjoys a book donation/exchange for a couple of weeks at the studio.  All of the used books collected are donated to the  Oakville Literacy Council for their annual Used Book sale.  Each year we are overwhelmed with donations and the enthusiasm for books in our yoga community.  Obviously, there are a lot of keen readers among our yoga students! This gave us the idea of a CSY Book Club. We are always looking at ways to create deeper layers of comm...

Look At What We Have Achieved!

A strong focus at Creating Space Yoga Studio is the encouragement of community and “doing our part and giving back”.  Although our students do come to CSY to practice their individual yoga and to discover new things about their own body and self; another consistent theme in the intentions of our practices also rests in the desire to reach out into our community to connect and help in small and big ways. I am so proud of the CSY Community and what we have achieved together!  Take a lo...

Proliferation of Pj’s!

As we move through the years and the holidays approach, we usually gravitate towards long lasting traditions and try to hold on to the same yearly events and gatherings.  But as we all know, things always change and never stay the same.  There is both sadness and freedom in this truth.  The shapes of our families change.  Kids grow up, people move away or we lose someone that we love.  It is hard to envision replicating the same loved traditions with the changing shapes around us. What I have no...
