2 Legit to Quit

I have to admit, I have never been to an event at the LSPU Hall…..bring on something new to try!

I was surprised and quite impressed with the quality of the Hall. Great seating with a professional stage, acoustics and lighting. A bar off the lobby provided a place to gather prior to the show and a great opportunity to mingle during intermission and after the production.

2 Legit 2 Quit will transport you back to the classically-influenced roots of 2LegitPoster-smaller (1)musical theatre” was the quote. 5 performers made up the cast, each one with their own distinct singing style. Each song was sung with enthusiasm and I applaud the performers for the obvious effort they had put into their production.

But I did find that for me, it was in some way lacking. Was it that the songs weren’t really familiar to me? Was it the style of the music? I love musical theatre and I had expectations of what I was going to see but maybe what I expected wasn’t what the intention of the production was. All I know is I wasn’t “transported.”

I give A for effort but I take a pass on “2 Legit to Quit” but I do look forward to trying something else at the LSPU!

Peace, Love, Yoga with Tina Pomroy

“I Am Divine Love” I chanted.  And that was exactly how I was feeling after an hour and a half yoga session with Tina Pomroy at the Yoga Kula Co-op located at 286 Torbay Road.  This special yoga event focused on peace and love, which is apropos given it was the Valentine’s weekend.

Peace love and yoga
This event took place Friday night , February 12th, 2016

My evening with Tina and 6 other participates, included stretching, breathing, enjoying essential oils and eating chocolate by candlelight. Sound nice? It was.

During this event I had the opportunity to practice meditation which I find incredibly difficult and chanting which, while awkward at first, became highly enjoyable as all my stresses of the week drifted away.

One of my favorite parts of the practice took place when Tina spoke softly and gently using imagery to help you imagine holding a magic bowl which we could fill with love. For those of you that have never done yoga or meditation before, this might sound a bit hokey, but trust me, this opportunity to empty your mind of negativity and stress and fill it with positive and uplifting ideas, hokey or not, felt GOOD!

This was a lovely way to spend a Friday evening and I highly recommend it to any beginner or
