August 2012 

Beth Shaw
YogaFit Founder
Highlight of our Summer, best fitness trade show in North America, a blast, great parties, nice people, organized sessions - GREAT ENERGY.  A few things that come to mind in a free association session after canfitpro Toronto!

Dear Canada, you know how to do things!  This year was the best one so far in terms of YogaFit presence, session, trade show booth traffic and exposure.  Simply
put - YogaFit rocked the house!  Many of you know, and some of you don't that I participate in a group for the New York Times monthly.  The good news is that I will be in Toronto more often and hope to see you all for master classes, special events and more.

Thank you all so much for embracing YogaFit and despite the cold, making me feel very warm.

See you all soon.

From Lisa Greenbaum, Director of YogaFit Canada 
WOW! what an absolute whirlwind the Toronto 2012 canfitpro show was this year. All of our trainings were sold out, workshops were packed and for the trade show, I apologize to anyone who couldn't see into the booth among the sea of people.  I was overjoyed to see so many familiar faces from right across the country - YogaFit Canada rocked the house and that is thanks to all of you who support our mission to spread our love of YogaFit to everybody and every body! 

I continue to buzz with excitement with new ideas and projects we are putting in the works for Fall 2012. We have a jam packed schedule with trainings right across the country already online with hopes to add a few more, especially after the successful launch of our new one day training, YogaFit for Personal Trainers! New products coming to our website, including more Canadian made merchandise as well as workshops and seminars being planned in our Toronto boutique. Our Canadian MBF dates will be posted in the next few weeks as well with the addition of Montreal and Calgary and the build out for the 2013 training schedule is also on its way. 

Full of gratitude as always for the YogaFit family!

Namaste xo 

PS for readers of my blog, I apologize for slacking this summer with my posts, I have been utterly distracted by my new nephew Freddy who just may be the cutest thing in the entire world. I promise to be back soon!!

                    Tip Of The Month    

Fresh Fruit Spray   

Make fruit more attractive to your picky eater by preventing them from turning brown.  Add 3-5 drops of dōTERRA lemon essential oil to a glass spray bottle (alone or with a small amount of filtered water) and shake. Apply to fruit, such as apple or banana slices, and let sit for one minute, then rinse.


This tip comes from the forthcoming edition of dōTERRA Living Magazine.
