From There to Here (Union to Algonquin Yoga Retreats)

I just got back from an incredible weekend at the Toronto Yoga Show. Our Yoga Retreat Facilitator and I went down for the weekend to promote our Algonquin Park Yoga Retreats and to shoot for our new “From There to Here” campaign, which promotes green train travel from Union Station to Algonquin Park (to view more images visit our Fan Page). We had a blast! Although we arrived in pouring rain on Friday, Saturday and Sunday were just perfect for photos and travel. Friday afternoon was spent schmoozing at the show. We were lucky enough to meet up with some friends of the Edge (Musician David Hickey), Wendy’s mentor, and Cosmo TV (who interviewed Wendy and her husband about how “HOT” couples yoga is. Wendy even got to participate in a couple of the free yoga workshops.

Saturday morning brought a different type of adventure. We gathered outside Union Station and began shooting. The wind was incredible by the Yogis were even more amazing! They were seriously into getting the job done and were very much in the zone.

Following this windy Yoga Adventure we parted ways and continued to schmooze. Sunday morning brought more wonderful weather surprises! The sun came out and the sky stayed blue. We met mid day in Kensington Market, enjoy a great Latte and started all over again. The city provides such an incredibly chaotic backdrop for the tranquility of yoga positions. We took advantage of every nook and cranny, every spray painted wall, and every busy street.

    Thanks for posting this review of the Yoga Festival. Although I couldn’t make it due to prior committments, at least I can enjoy it vicariously. Perhaps I’ll look up your studio when I visit Algonquin park next month.
