Financial Abundance - Sound Bath, October!
In September 2018, I started hosting small Sound Bath events in my Thai Massage treatment space, and it’s been beautiful! We were even lucky enough to step out onto my big private balcony and soak in the last few hot nights of early fall for some movement + discussion before the Sound Bath! I decided to start with a topic of Financial Abundance for women, because often we are taught to limit ourselves, to take care of other people first, and dull our own shine. This can affect our finances in sneaky ways, and sometimes when we have issues with money, it can mean we really have issues with much deeper things.
Like so many others, this has been a part of my own journey as a woman and an entrepreneur, and it was really special and powerful to create a space for other women to explore this together.
I’m hosting Financial Abundance - Sound Bath again on Tuesday October 9th, so please email me at [email protected] to RSVP and secure your spot :) Space is limited.
Here’s a testimonial from September’s event:
✨ “Becca, you held space so divinely for us to tap into &
blast off…So that we could soar into the depths of ourselves. So many
portals of abundance and self love not only opened up for us…But
literally I felt stardust in my veins. Thank you thank you thank you so
much Becca for doing the work, and then showing us the way…I seriously
cannot wait until next time.” - Ash
If you would like to hire me to host a Sound Bath workshop for a private group of friends/family, in your office, yoga studio, community center, etc, please get in touch! :D :D :D
Life is no fun when you’re in pain. And sometimes, an amazing Thai Massage will only help so much, when other things in our lives are causing us constant pain. Here I share some of my favourite Life Hacks for Less Pain - Part 1:
1. Gaiam Classic Balance Ball Chair - I cannot stress how amazing this chair is for lower back pain/compression. I suggest it to almost anyone I can. I’m sitting on it right now as I type this! It makes such a difference, that when I work at a coffee shop in a ‘normal chair’, my back feels pretty jammed up by the end of the day. It also helps to engage your core and correct bad posture. So important when many of us have jobs where we sit all day. Sitting sucks - your life doesn’t have to ;)
2. Tumeric - This bright orange anti-inflammatory has been used for centuries. I suggest reading up on it, if you experience chronic pain or inflammation. I often try to opt for smoothies or juices that include Tumeric, add it to my stir fry’s and chop up the root to make tea. I combine chopped Tumeric and Ginger roots, a few cloves of chopped organic garlic, honey and lemon with boiled water for an excellent immune-tea. You can add cayenne if you’re feeling feisty!
3. Swap the heavy backpack for a small wheely suitcase. Again, similar to switching desk chairs, the results are noticeable, almost instant, and I wish I had done this sooner. I ordered a small wheely suitcase off Groupon and I use it whenever I have to go somewhere with more than a purse. No more lugging around so much stuff. Newsflash - carrying around a heavy backpack or bag isn’t great for you. I feel so much less shoulder pain now that I’ve switched, and it makes me feel sleek and professional too!
Stay tuned for more of my Life Hacks for Less Pain in a future blog post…

Another great year trying a multitude of offerings at The Yoga Conference! Some of Toronto’s best teachers + international experts teach and it’s a chance to try out a huge variety of top-notch talent all under 1 roof.
I did a Restorative Yoga Training with Andrea Peloso, which was incredible and taught me so much about the fundamentals of real Restorative Yoga. I’m excited to integrate this training into my Thai Massage treatments. Sometimes even the slightest of changes to a Restorative prop can mean all the difference in turning off the Sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and allowing the Parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) to take over, allowing for true healing inside the body.
I also took Ashley Turner’s Cord Cutting + Core Power and Clarity Bartleet’s Kali Yoga classes, which were both amazing, and full of activating tools for releasing unhealthy attachments, and tapping into your boundaries and intuition.
Finally, I had to wrestle myself out of bed to attend legendary teachers Colleen Saidman-Yee and Rodney Yee’s Complete 1 Day Retreat - yes, that means a 6 hour yoga class. And. I did it! They have an incredible flow together as yoga teachers + partners in life and love, and I felt on top of the world after.
