Mountain Energy is moving!

It has been a long time since I have posted something on this blog. There has been a lot going on in my life. For many years I had planned to leave Ontario and move to the maritimes. The time has finally come. I had wanted to do more training in Yoga before I left, but in person training is no longer allowed because of the virus. A friend of mine had recently started his yoga teacher training, and it was going wonderfully, but it has now been put on hold. I can see how this is a difficult time for such offerings.

I have quit my job as an electrician for the TTC. It was something I had looked forward to for many years. It was never the right place for me. Although I am grateful for the experiences I had, and the people that I met there. I am also grateful for the fact that it was working there that made me seek out some sort of therapy to help me cope in an environment that was not appropriate for me, and which led to my Yoga practice.

I think it will be interesting to have an account of what its like to take this kind of journey in these uncertain times. And I will be working on some blog entries to document the experience.

For now I will leave you with a picture of my current Yoga sanctuary, our empty basement. My husband I toiled to finish our basement. It took us a long time because we were working full time and didn’t have a lot of time to work on it. We changed the look from carpeted 70’s with wood panelling, to clean and modern with a vinyl floor. It was fun and so rewarding.

I am a yoga teacher, and an electrician. I write a yoga blog, and I teach yoga classes online. My other blog is called End Lockdowns. In a democracy we accept that people have different opinions, and we allow those opinions to be voiced. My opinion which is that lockdowns are not scientific, and do not create healthy communities. The medical community at one point knew that informed consent was an important value. Currently the medical community has been split and there is a vocal part of it that thinks there are no issues with coercion and force in medicine. The part of the medical community that believes in mandating medical procedures and segregation is currently promoted through social media and other big tech. We are seeing a huge shift in wealth as a result. Poverty does not make people healthier. I do not think using force and coercion in medicine is a health promoting way to function. In the future, this will fail. It is only a matter of when. "Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other." Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya
