It may not feel like a blissful period of time, but when I look around, I see helpers everywhere! Individuals and companies doing all that they can to support each other. In particular, “Period Aisle” is a Vancouver based company known for their amazing social justice work, sustainability motto, and inclusivity ethics. Early on in the quarantine, they shifted from making reusable sanitary products to producing masks for our service providers in downtown Eastside. Bravo! Bravo!
My own contribution is this “Blissful Period” practice, you don’t have to be menstruating to do this practice, you don’t even have to have a uterus. It too is an inclusive practice for everyone, everywhere. I hope it brings you peace.

“My son was so excited about your “GCFM” Wednesday classes that has helped him go through his core issues. He spent a decade on meds, physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists with no significant result. Thank you for your creative approach and enthusiasm during the yoga sessions.” Vlad
“Carine teaches a Ball rolling Yoga class at RAC. I have bursitis in my hip and rolling on the ball has greatly alleviated the pain. For me the Ball rolling class achieves the same results as going to a physiotherapist. Carine is a wonderful caring gentle person and an inspiration to her students. Thanks Carine.” Mardi
“Carine’s yin yoga class is the yoga that I have been trying to find for years. Carine is such a good teacher that I’ve finally been able to grasp the basics and make that elusive mind body connection that I’ve been stumbling through since the 70’s. At the end of every class, during our last pose, Carine wafts lavender over us. One night, during this time, she took extra time over me, and I felt the last claws of my 3 days migraine lifted out of my skull and jaw. When I asked her about it, she explained she had cleared my energy. I felt that she waved my negative energy away. It was true magic.” Judyann
