I’m excited to announce that I’ve invited to be a guest on Drishti Point, “Vancouver’s Yoga Radio Talk Show”, on Monday, June 21 from 5-6pm. This will be my first live radio experience! I’m very much looking forward to hitting the air waves and feel honoured to have been asked.

I’ll be talking about my journey through cancer from the perspective of a yoga teacher and student. Specifically I’ll share the profoundly positive impact that my training as a yogi had a on my healing process and the role that my yoga communities, or sangats as they’re sometimes called, played in my miraculous recovery. I’ll also share some of the many lessons and insights that my bout with cancer has taught me.

If you’re in the Vancouver area, tune your radio to 102.7 FM to listen in. You can also listen to the show live at www.coopradio.org. Thanks in advance for tuning in and I welcome any feedback you have!

To support the people of Haiti in healing and rebuilding following the devastation of Tuesday’s earthquake I’m donating all proceeds from my next two Monday evening Kundalini Yoga classes (January 18 and 25) to the CMAT (Canadian Medical Assistance Teams). Both classes will include a healing circle meditation – an opportunity to send healing to Haiti at a more spiritual, energetic level.

A member of the Yoga West sangat (spiritual community) is flying to Haiti on Sunday with the CMAT to help set up a self-contained field hospital and to treat the victims of the disaster. I acknowledge him for his courage and willingness to serve and am happy to support this initiative. As an added bonus, the Government of Canada will be matching all donations made to the CMAT.

Please see my yoga classes page for more information on the Monday evening Kundalini Yoga class and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you are unable to attend the class, but would still like to support the CMAT you can make a donation through their website: www.canadianmedicalteams.org.

Atimi SoftwareI’m pleased to announce that I recently joined the management team at Atimi Software. Atimi is a company of about 65 people that provides software development services, with extensive expertise in developing Macintosh, cross-platform and iPhone software. As the Director of Desktop Sales my main focus is on Macintosh and cross-platform development projects, though I’ll have also have some involvement on the iPhone side of things.

I’ve been a big fan of the Macintosh pretty much since the day one was dropped on my desk in the early 1990’s. I went on to develop Macintosh software for six years and later moved into management roles. Over the years I worked for graphic companies in Ottawa, Gatineau in Dublin and my corporate experience includes an eight-year stint at Corel Corporation. In recent years I owned and operated a marketing and technology consulting firm called Technically Simple.

I’m excited to have taken on this new challenge at Atimi Software. I’m working with a fun, enthusiastic and talented group of people and the position makes good use of both range of technical and business skills.

p.s. On a side note, please contact me if you or anyone you know might be interested in contracting Atimi Software’s services.

Starting January 4, 2010 I’m going to be teaching a Monday evening (7:15-8:45pm) Kundalini Yoga class in the Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) area of Vancouver –specifically at the Personal Best Fitness Therapy facility that is located at 731 W 16th Avenue, Vancouver, between Willow and Heather.

Kundalini Yoga, sometimes referred to as the “mother of all yogas”, is a holistic practice that incorporates dynamic exercises, some posture work (asana), breathing exercises (pranayama), relaxation, meditation and yogic philosophy. The class is open to everyone and exercises can be modified to match your fitness level.

For more information please visit my Kundalini Yoga Classes page and feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

I’m excited to be launching my new website, timstringer.com. This website ties together my personal and professional lives – which are in many ways deeply intertwined – and will provide me with a forum for both showcasing the talents that I offer professionally and for sharing information and inspiration stemming from my many interests and pursuits in life.

I’ll keep this first post short as it’s almost time for “date night” with my beautiful wife Christa. I look forward to sharing more soon, including some stories and photos from the Ride to Conquer Cancer that I participated in a couple of weekends back.

Stay tuned!
