The Canadian distributor, Samara Zoetmulder, owner of Trillium Connection, kindly sent me a set of the Namast-Eggs, pictured above. She had been introduced to the Eggs at the Toronto Yoga Show and Conference in 2012 and was immediately hooked on the beauty of these yoga props. After using the Eggs, and attending the 2013 show to meet Samara, I was also hooked.
It might have been seeing this restorative pose, using the Three Minute Eggs.
I was also hooked on the Yoga show. This year’s show and conference, in the North Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, begins on Thursday, April 9, and runs until Sunday, April 12. You can check out the full schedule here.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you’ll be sure to notice the Yoga Garden Area, where there’ll be continuous demonstrations for participants to join. There is something almost empowering to be with a group of more than 100 yogis. Even if you choose not to participate, it’s a wonder to watch. There is also the Cultural Arts Area where there are presentations on the various aspects of yoga.
Organizers describe the show as “A 3-day urban yoga retreat designed to galvanize, grow, educate and inspire your practice.” Some of the conference sessions are geared more towards yoga teachers than the “average” practitioner, but there is definitely something for everyone.
With more than 300 workshops, 60 master instructors, and 250 exhibitors, how could there not be something that will appeal to you?
In between or after the sessions, you can grab some lunch or dinner provided by one of the food vendors. Or you can explore the area after the show and visit one of many local restaurants.
I have to thank Samara for her generosity introducing me to the Three Minute Eggs. I use them frequently as they are extremely versatile—not only for yoga, but for Pilates, and stretching.
It will be a “third time charm” visit at the Toronto Yoga Show and Conference. You might even see me in the Garden trying out a new pose or prop.
