Our Canadian Girls take home the GOLD…


So proud of my old Winter Guard the Pacificaires. They’ve been around and competing for over 3 decades. We put in some good showings but were never able to break the top echelon. Just sticking around as a player for over 3 decades is a feat not many independent groups have been able to do, but deep down we were all striving for the allusive Gold medal. Congrats to to everyone involved in bringing the Gold home!

Here’s an excerpt from their review:

1st Place – 95.4 – Pacificaires (Surrey, BC, Canada)Oh, Canada, thank you for sending these earthy women from the north. The spectators in the Arena found themselves “Falling Slowly” in love with them. Poised and confident, controlled and strong, they filled the vast space with strength and loveliness, repeating a movement montage of slowly lowering each other to the earth. Graceful movers, solid spinners, strong moments by soloists, strong moments by the ensemble, and a finale flag feature that moved and reshaped and then dissolved into duets of support and grace…the quiet strength and show design sophistication are what put these young women on top tonight. Congratulations on winning the gold medal!

and here’s a clip of the girls getting their medals!

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
