My name is Shawna, and I live in Milton, Ontario, Canada- a little west of Toronto. My blog name is inspired by calla lilies, if you're wondering!

I started doing BodyFlow classes about 5 years ago, and tried my first "real" class - Bikram - in 2007  (in New Zealand on a backpacking trip, actually!) I've regularly been doing the hot yoga series since October of 2009, at the Moksha studio in my town.

In April 2010 I took a certification course in Kids Yoga, which I have been teaching regularly at Moksha Yoga Milton since then.

In July 2010, I completed the one-month intensive portion of the Moksha Yoga Teacher training, completing 300 of the 500 hour certificate. The months to come will involve many different projects, as well as logging many hours both practicing and teaching. If you're interested in taking my classes at Moksha, join my facebook page to stay updated on times. I'll be teaching in Milton and Hamilton!

I'm a dental hygienist at my "day job". I love yoga as it provides the perfect balance to the rushed, long, occasionally stressful and always physically demanding days of work.

Now, some poses I love... and some poses I'd love to master!

Poses I love:
Camel - i actually disliked this one to start, but since October I've managed to work my way back into the full pose. I love it!

Pigeon- I love that you have to surrender yourself to fully get into this pose!

Awkward pose- i just love it!

Poses I'd love to master:
This variation of Pigeon - I tried this for the first time the other day, and my foot was so far away from my head! This will take some work!

Crow/ Crane. I can feel my arms toning up from all my chuttarungas, so I can't wait to have enough balance and strength to pull this one off!

Half Moon- I can get myself into the pose, but I am VERY shaky- I want to stabilize the pose!

See you around!
