Tribe Tunes: October 14

Tunes Tuesday2This month launched the return of Tribe #YogaJam, our free community yoga class offered through Tribe Fitness. During these colder seasons we’ve teamed up with MEC and have moved our complimentary #YogaJam indoors to 400 King Street West, Toronto, from 10-11am (doors open at 9:45am). Same flowy fun, same great music, just a new location to groove in.

One of the most frequent questions over the summer was where did we get our music from.  So, introducing a new blog feature, #TribeTunes Tuesday. Every week we’ll share a few of our favourite tunes which we love to sweat to and we hope you will too!

Here are four songs from my  summer #YogaJam class.  Join myself and the rest of our yoga team every Sunday at MEC  for our free #YogaJam fun! Bring your own mat and water bottle. All ages and levels welcome (babies and kids too!).

Jr. Blender Reggae Remix: Beyoncé – Drunk In Love

Oliver Nelson Remix: Justin Timberlake – Suit & Tie

Kungs Remix: Bob Marley – Jammin 

Xavier Rudd: Follow The Sun

BEST HEALTH MAGAZINE: 10-Minute Tuneup: October

The better butt workout

My partnership with Oakley Active and Best Health Magazine continues as we move into fall, and just because swim suit season is over, it doesn’t mean it’s time to sit that butt down on the couch until the new year.

Why not get moving with these seven butt blasting moves designed by Stephanie Joanne, and demonstrated by me for Best Health Magazine.

Follow along at home with photos and videos of the full workout here! Or pick up a copy (or digital download) on sale now!



Running For a Cure While Building a Community

CBCF_EnglishThe one thing I hadn’t anticipated at Sunday’s Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure was the immense sense of community and connectedness I would feel, and being someone who prides herself of building community, I was really surprised that I didn’t clue in to it sooner.

127,000 participants and volunteers came together on Sunday’s Run day. This number is huge, and a huge amount of money was raised, $25 million for innovative breast cancer research, health education, and advocacy initiatives throughout Canada. But from what I saw, the money wasn’t what this day was about.

While I had originally signed up for the Run at the Toronto Zoo, my husband and I joined his work colleagues at Lakeview Park in Oshawa, Ontario. Here a giant community of young and old pink wigs, feather boas, and tutus galore could be seen. People were connecting for a cause and making a difference, both financially, hopefully physically, and definitely emotionally. I was inspired by the people I met who were participating to honour and support their friends, family, and the breast cancer community. Many families from my husband’s work were present to walk in support of a colleague. This run brought them together to socialize, reflect, support, and have fun.

Thank you to each of you who read, shared, and donated, helping me reach my fundraising goal. I am deeply thankful for your incredible support, committing to the CIBC Run for the Cure, and the breast cancer cause.thank-you-heart-pink
