Beach Nia at Jill Hewlett’s Women’s Wellness Circle 2.0

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

It was a pleasure to be part of Jill Hewlett’s Women’s Circle for the second year in a row this past Friday night. We had a large circle of very spirited women join us at Ashbridges Bay, some of whom were experiencing Nia for the first time.

Corey Hart, what up?!

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

On Wed July 18, 2014, I had a night off from teaching so I met my pal Danette Relic at Monarch Tavern for some great singing fun with Choir! Choir! Choir!. Corey Hart and his famed night-time sunglass-wearing habit gave us our material for the night.

I love this group! It’s only the second time I’ve been, but the fact that I can just show up, learn a part (low, middle, high), sing it and get the satisfaction of being part of something quite beautiful is my idea of soul nourishment!

I smile every time I think about it. And when I listen to it while I’m out and about, I get serious gratitude shivers!
