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.

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.

05/06/18 Fitness by Jacflash, Women’s Booty Workshop with Trainer Lara Marquez and OB-GYN Dr. Gabrielle Cassir

Our Sunday trainer, Lara Marquez brought back the crowd pleaser working abs and booty today!
Our goodie bag sponsors today include Over EZ, Sproos, Handfuel, Soapstones Natural Skincare, and water was supplied by Fiji Water.
Our raffle prizes are from One Life Meals, Organika and Crave Heathy Habits!

 

Gynaecologist, Dr. Gabrielle Cassir  currently sub-specializes in High Risk Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto and is considered one of the association’s most recognized medical specialists.

Throughout her continuous training, Dr. Cassir immersed herself in the many facets of the OB-GYN world, and in doing so, discovered her passion for women’s education. In a world where pop culture idealism and social media enthralment have become an integral part of society, Dr. Cassir knows that there’s a relevant opportunity for shedding light and understanding on the issues, complications and questions women face daily about their bodies.

Dr. Cassir discussed everything we wanted to know about what to expect when expecting, contraception, STDs, Gardasil vaccine, Pap tests and yeast infections...with answers to all our burning female questions in a game of gyno jeopardy!

Our trainer Lara Marquez motivated, lead and guided us through every crunch and lift along with Squats, Thrusts and everything else the booty needs.

And thank you so much for everyone that brought gently used clothing, toiletries, make up and beauty products, bras, socks, underwear and more for the women of Sistering.org!
