Weekly Inspirations: March 11, 2014

Each week of teaching my Sunrise Flow on Tuesday mornings, I plan to offer a weekly inspiration to my students. I want to share something that I find inspiring in hope of sparking inspiration in others. Each week I will also post the inspiration on my blog for my students to access if they find something attractive and also for those of you who are unable to make it to my class but may need a bit of inspiration for your week. For my first week I chose an excerpt from the book Meditations from the Mat by Rolf Gates and Katrina Kenison.

Get Outdoors: The Adventures of Domestikatie and Branstand – Killarney Lake

Mossy feet at Killarney Lake, Victoria BC

On a rainy Saturday we took a trip to Killarney Lake. Killarney Lake is just Northwest of Prospect Lake in West Saanich and is part of Mount Work Park. I would definitely consider it to be a secret lake as very few people know about, which means no crowds in the summer time! It is also about a 20-25 minute walk from any parking areas and is not very kid friendly which prevents it from getting crowded. Killarney Lake is a great area for bouldering and mountain biking as well as swimming. There is a cliff for cliff jumping and even a rope swing (which Bran is a big fan of in the summertime).  Its a great lake for just floating on an air mattress or dingy in the sunshine.
