Be Moved + Modo Yoga Brantford

From the Be Moved Yoga & Wellness newsletter on May 31, 2019

First of all, I want to say thank you for all of the emails, texts, cards, hugs, and the outpouring of support. I feel very taken care of, and I want to make sure you feel the same.
Which is why I reached out to Markus Schneider of
Modo Yoga Branford to see if there is a way for Be Moved to live on, just in a different way. As I mentioned in my last newsletter, I love teaching and I love spending time with everyone who comes to my classes. As I have new challenges and ventures coming my way I want to be free of the task of running a studio.
Let me share a little bit with you about Markus. In the first year of running Be Moved, Markus showed up one day at the studio to take a class. He introduced himself and told me that he tries to get around to the local studios because he felt it was important that as studios and teachers we work together and support each other.
I really respected him for taking this step and for reaching out to me. Since that day we have worked together a few times. He invited me to teach at a special event at Modo once, and I asked him to be a part of the Recovery Fundraiser I held in 2017. 
This spring I get an email from Markus just saying hi and that he would love to get together. This was before I had any sense of my diagnosis. We got together at Modo and we chatted for a long time. Again, Markus expressed his genuine desire to bring more yoga to Brantford, to share the message of this healing practice and possibly finding ways we could do this together.
So when I found out my diagnosis and quickly realized I it was time to let go of running a studio I reached out to Markus to see if there was any way we could work this out in a way that would be beneficial to our community and the Modo Community.
Graciously and easily Markus welcomed the idea, and without any hesitation, he started working out the details so we could make this happen. I have to say, I am truly blown away by his generosity and kindness.  
So. We have a plan!

I am going to teach at Modo Yoga Brantford!
My class will be called “Be Moved”. Yay!

I will have three classes a week in the non-heated studio. This schedule will start as soon as I’m ready to come back, which I’m hoping will be the beginning of July. 

Here is my schedule at Modo Yoga 
Wednesday 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Friday 9:30am – 10:30am
Saturday 8:30am – 9:30am*
*In the fall this time will likely shift to either 9am/9:30am

As well, I wanted to give you a chance to practice with me at Modo before I take time off. I’m teaching two classes next week at Modo:

Wednesday, June 5th 4:30pm – 5:30pm

Friday, June 7th 9:30am – 10:30am
