When you know exactly what you want in life and believe that you can have it everything just starts clicking together. Like sand dropping one at a time in an hour glass so can all the necessary events, people and means drop right into your lap.

Never before had I looked at online ads for yoga teachers but one day I happened upon this opportunity at Believe Yoga. The owner Roxanne and I are still astonished at how many of the teachers just “happened along”. Teachers that fit in so perfectly with Roxanne’s vision that it’s truly hard to believe any of it was an accident.

The same is true of our Ten Week Challenge participant Laurin. She just happened to be going over to The Brick, saw our sign and decided to pop in. I remember meeting her for the first time so clearly because I was so impressed! She was so unassuming, friendly and undeniably enchanting. Simply an instant connection was made all around.

Laurin relayed to me that when she was a Grade 5 student at a private Catholic School she had an exceptional teacher and nun named Sister Mary Redemta. Sister Mary invited Laurin to visit the Rectory and as Laurin walked in she was struck by how peaceful, quiet and calm it was. That she felt as if she was “in the lap of God”. In that moment she wanted to be a nun when she grew up. She never did take that path but knew that one day she would find that kind of peace again. And she has with Yoga practised here at Believe Yoga!

So here we are now at the end of the Ten Week Challenge. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to Laurin for opening her life to us all. We want to thank ALL of you for reading along and joining us here at Believe. Truthfully since the doors have opened it has been a never ending stream of the most wonderful people passing through our doors. It’s hard not to pinch oneself to affirm this reality…it is almost too good to be true.

Thankfully Roxanne BELIEVE’D all along.

Love and Namaste,
