February 2012 Issue of the Village Vibe Is Out: Good Deeds and Good Health Go Hand in Hand @ Fernwood Yoga Den

The February issue of the Village Vibe is now out and in this issue, I interviewed Lola Storry and Rachel Sadava on their new yoga studio, Fernwood Yoga Den.

I’m not a yoga practitioner by all means, but Lola and Rachel’s enthusiasm won me over and their approach to yoga is different from anything I’ve ever heard of.  Their experiences and their focus on providing yoga to people with mental health issues and who are recovering from trauma is both inspiring and it’s created a niche in the yoga marketplace.

I really enjoyed talking to the girls about the studio and this article managed to make it on to the front page of this issue!

I hope you enjoy reading it, because I certainly enjoy writing it and I’m definitely proud of it. 🙂


February Issue of the Village Vibe

A little Holiday Reading: First Published Feature Story in Fernwood NRG’s Village Vibe!

It’s been a pretty busy last few months for me. Between new projects, a computer meltdown and starting a new position as Social Media/Web Producer for CTV Vancouver Island, I pushed aside blogging on my own endeavors for the time being.

But, I wanted to come back with some exciting news just in time for the holidays and into the New Year. It’s a new direction for me in an effort to build up the magazine/print publication section of my portfolio and I’m very excited about it! It started in November and I now have long-term plans in place to be a featured contributing writer for Fernwood NRG’s Village Vibe newspaper! It’s the free newspaper for Victoria’s Fernwood neighborhood that comes out every two months and it keeps Fernwood residents updated on everything that is going on in their neighborhood, from new stores opening to construction projects and events.

I wanted to share with you a little light holiday reading: my first published feature article for the Village Vibe. It’s featured in the December issue and it’s on the construction of Victoria High School’s new extension and the history of Fairey Tech, the technical unit that the high school had for over sixty years.

I hope you enjoy the article and rest assured, I’ll be back with more posts on great places I’ve traveled to, great events and experiences I’ve had, including more articles from Village Vibe!

Enjoy and have a great holiday season!
