Our instructor Kay Ghajar (@kayghajar) has been practicing yoga for almost 10 years. She began exploring different styles of yoga after taking courses in positive psychology, which informed on the benefits of yoga and meditation. After a traumatic life event in university and failed progression through traditional counselling, she started practicing yoga and keeping a gratitude jar, which began her healing process and changed her outlook on life.

Kay received her 200-hour teaching certificate at Power Yoga Canada and will lead us through an amazing Power Yoga session. Her detailed, descriptive instruction and high energy makes the class exciting, comprehendible and achievable for the women in the class who are all at different levels.

We learned how to cloth wrap gifts beautifully without tape or any waste. The wrapping becomes part of the recipient’s gift so that they can reuse the cloth themselves or for another gift. We’ll cover hard to wrap gifts like wine bottles and toys. This can also be applicable for transporting other items such as food.
