I had the opportunity to attend a 5 hour Introduction to Thai Yoga Massage course at the Still Light Centre (276 Carlaw) this past Saturday and wanted to share with everyone here how awesome it was. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it.
The class I went to is an introductory course to a 20 minute sequence that you and a partner learn together, or you can go on your own and pair up with another solo person there, which is what I did. If you're good at making fast…Continue

Frankly, I should keep my mouth shut, but I thought you all deserved to know there’s an awesome eatery in town. So awesome, it has earned a score of 100% on Urbanspoon. Need I say more? No, but I will anyway.
My neighbourhood just keeps getting better and better. With every restaurant I visit and every bite I take. Although, it seems to be the brunch spots…Continue
