“Candace and Helen have combined their talents to produce a book that is both challenging and methodical - a rare treat. Their own personal practices shine through with the inclusion of beautiful and simple photographic illustrations. As an eBook it is a helpful and convenient resource that both yoga practitioners and teachers will want to return to often for guidance.”

The clear photos, and an easy to use format allow readers to experience detailed instructions in a simple way. Students with a curiosity to explore the subtle and profound depths of yoga will love this book.” 

Shauna Ellerby


“Creating Space: Yoga Actions for Feet & Ankles is a treasure chest filled with a bounty of focused yoga actions. The book has a playful sense that inspires yoga practitioners to explore how each pose feels using different actions. Candace and Helen's loving dedication to their yoga practice and to the niyama of svadhyaya, self-study, is reflected in the book's carefully chosen instructions, the fluid sequencing and the beautiful images. As such, as a yoga teacher's reference, it provides a unique practitioner's resource to traditional yoga actions, breath instruction and asana propping.”

New book

Creating Space: Yoga Actions Asana Glossary

This sixth book contains well over 700 photo images of poses (asanas) representing every pose and it's variations that we used throughout all five Yoga Actions books. The Glossary is divided into main categories, ie. standing poses, forward bends, restorative poses. Within each category, the individual poses are organized alphabetically by their Sanskrit names. Each asana begins with a photo of the most complete version of the pose that we used in our books, followed by a pictorial journey into the various stages and alterations of each pose. You can also see how two different bodies, Helen's and mine, work within the demands of each pose. 

We hope you find this book, as well as our others, a gem of usefulness!                                 

Print copies of all books can be bought through Amazon.ca or directly through myself if you live in or around Winnipeg, Manitoba. 

                                                    $26.25 CDN  (tax included)
