Through Arlene’s gentle guidance, I feel I am finally regaining control of my body. I have learned to “breathe” properly; to relax tight muscles; and I am regaining my balance through gentle stretching. Overall, my general health has improved greatly. I look forward to each session as yoga has become my personal time to just be me. Thank you Arlene, for all your words of wisdom and encouragement along my path to better health.   Carolyn P.


I have been attending yoga classes-instructions by Arlene Dalton for approximately the last year. I am a senior who has a great deal of energy and have had difficulty relaxing. These yoga classes have provided me with alternate ways to handle the energy. Arlene’s relaxed and informative classes are a great asset to the seniors living at Inglewood Apartments. Her enthusiasm for yoga is contagious. I really enjoy look forward to these weekly classes.  Helen M.




Arlene Dalton’s presentation on “Yoga, Meditation and Health” was well received by some 50 members and guests even though a major NHL hockey game was underway. A highly experienced Hatha Yoga instructor with a background in Social Services, Arlene cleared up some common misconceptions about yoga. She then led the audience through some basic yoga postures, followed by a brief “mindwatch” and ending with a short relaxing meditation. All agreed that Arlene should be asked to speak at future meetings.
