Happy Birthday to my inspiring wife who continues to make her dreams come true. I am excited to fly into the future with you. May we never grow too old together :) :)

Whether you are writing a novel, homeschooling your kids, getting in shape, or binging on Netflix, do whatever you need to handle your stress. Everyone handles things differently. Some people burn off stress by having kitchen dance parties while others roll in a ball and cry. Both are ok and normal. Give yourself and family permission to do whatever you individually need to release and recharge your energy and emotions. Celebrate if someone is taking on a major project or relaxing in their pajamas all day. The main thing is to be on the look out for family members and friends who aren't handling their stress in healthy ways. Those are the people who need extra guidance and support.

Effective Monday, March 16, we will be suspending all classes at our physical locations at Get Bent Yoga and Sparkle Dance and temporarily moving them online!
We have many seniors in our yoga programs with existing health conditions both at our studio and satellite classes at retirement homes throughout Penticton. Therefore we are taking whatever precaution necessary to protect the health of everyone who attends the studio.
Although we are minimizing our physical contact with you, we believe it is vital for everyone to stay connected, keep dancing, and doing yoga at home.
It’s very important for all of us to remain healthy, minimize stress, and boost immunity. Therefore, we will be shifting classes online and will be teaching you from our home studio starting Wednesday, March 18.
We will be live streaming two yoga classes🧘🏻♂️ a day and two dance classes 💃a day, Monday to Friday. This first yoga class will be gentle, and relaxed, focusing on soft flexibility, mobility, breathing, and circulation. This class is suitable for everyone, especially those attending our aging bodies mat classes. The second yoga class will focus on strength building, balance, active flexibility and alignment. Similar to our deep stretch and evening classes, modifications will be offered for varying levels of experience.
Both dance classes will offer something inspiring and exciting. The first dance class will be technique, fundamentals, and drills to keep you tuned up and toned up. The second dance class will be focused on new choreography and combinations, in a variety of styles, that are different each day.
Also on Wednesday and Fridays, we will have a Fit, Funky and Flexible class💪. Which is great for those that were on the waiting list for Saturdays! Now there is unlimited room;)
All of these livestream classes will be recorded and reposted so you can practice at any time of day￼.
Steps to register:
1. Friend Wendy Goudie on Facebook
2. Request to join the Yoga Group, the Dance Group or the Fit, Funky, Flexible Group
3. Credits - If you’re in a class that you have already paid for that is scheduled to be running in the next two weeks, we will automatically put you in the group at no charge.
Payments - If you currently attend classes on a drop in basis, use a punch pass, or are new to the studio, we have set pricing at $25 (+tax) to give you access to one group￼ to the end of March. To make your payment please send an Etransfer to [email protected].
We are deeply committed to providing these classes so you can keep up your practice! We can all make it through this if we continue to support each other at home during this time.
We feel this is the best plan to provide the least disruption of service and keep everyone happy, healthy and connected.
Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment ❤️
Keep following Get Bent Yoga and Sparkle Dance Academy for updates.

Many of you who have been to our shows may know Nya. She won the best smile award at the 2019 Spring Showcase. :)
Nya has cerebral palsy and being the amazing and strong girl that she is, she hasn't let this affect her love of dancing and being on stage.
She dances 3 days a week and has the same smile on her face during workouts, meetings, rehearsals, and shows!
Nya has a serious corrective hip surgery scheduled very soon. This is necessary and will ultimately be positive, but it will leave her in a wheelchair for about a year.
This is a very emotional, scary, and serious thing for anyone to go through, let alone, a 10-year-old.
Nya's dance group, along with the older girls in the studio, have decided to come together in one piece, all on rolling chairs, to support Nya in her performing for the year that she is in her chair.
The groups have decided to do this piece over spring break, so it's done BEFORE her surgery, which is in April. This will give Nya something to look forward to when she is finally able to come back to classes, in a wheelchair.
On behalf of the group - I'm asking for support to get 11 rolling chairs. They don't need to match and they don't need to be pretty. My guess is that the girls will decorate them anyway. ;)
An alternative is someone handy that would volunteer to attach wheels to folding chairs we already have (if that's even an option - I really don't know).
I know COVID19 is taking over our thoughts, but our little lives at Sparkle Dance are still moving forward and this is a show piece, most of you at some point over the next year, will no doubt see being performed in our community.
I know it'll make you smile. The girls in here are an amazing family.
If you have a rolling chair you could donate or know of a way to assist in making this happen quickly, message us here or email [email protected]

Another reason Kolyn Woodbridge and her team the Beauty Box in Summerland are amazing. Their salon is now Certified Sustainable.
Salons in North American produce 877 lbs of waste per minute :( However, the Beauty Box salon diverts 95% of their waste away from landfills and waterways. Way to go the eco-friendly team at the Beauty Box in Summerland :)
We are excited to announce our partnership starting today with @greencirclesalons ! So much waste happens in salons, and we do not want to be apart of that anymore.
We want to be better for our community, our children, and our world.
The fashion industry unfortunately produces mass amounts of waste. North American salons produce 877 lbs of waste per minute. That's only North America!! Every little bit helps. We'll be diverting 95% of our waste away from landfills and waterways!
There will be a small eco fee added to our services so we can all better our world together. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask your stylist. 😊

Human Skeleton under Different Situations (Use your Headphone)
Humans have around 270 bones at birth, but they fuse together as we grow old. By the time we reach adulthood, the number of our bones goes down to 206 bones. The bones in our skeletons reach their maximum density around age 21.
Our bones do not only help us move, they provide us with structural support, protect our organs and help us produce red blood cells. They also act as a storage area for minerals, particularly calcium.

Happy Valentine's Day from the Sparkle Dance Academy!
Along with loving others, please remember to love and celebrate yourself including your body. Don't let your mind bully your body. Our bodies are constantly changing. If we base our self-worth on our ever-changing bodies, we will forever be unhappy. Only loving your body when it's in "perfect" shape is like only loving your children when they are perfectly-behaved. You can’t hate yourself happy. You can’t criticize yourself thin. Don't workout because you hate your body. Workout because you love your body. Real change begins with self-love and self-care.
If you have criticized yourself for years, try loving yourself and see what happens. Evict your inner mean girl and stop telling yourself you are physically inadequate and flawed. Your words have so much power. Your body loves you and needs you. Love your body, nurture it, and embrace it. Don't let others dictate how you feel. Loving your body is about being comfortable in your body and only you get to set the parameters of that. Never let anyone make you feel ashamed of your body and appearance. Set yourself free by loving and embracing yourself. Every day, tell yourself "I love you" and mean it. Celebrate Valentine's Day by celebrating you. Shine brightly with everything you are. You and your imperfect body are a miracle. Please share this message with others you love - especially your daughters:
