Magical Sacred Circles

Find your path & discover the magic within the great round symbol of life

Lucy Baum

With a degree in Psychology and over 15 years experience in marketing and business, I followed my passion later in life to become a professional photographer. 

I'm motivated by capturing the essence and emotion of people and their connections. I nurture my own creative business with heart, and I love helping others do the same.

After so many clients asked me questions about improving their own photography skills, I founded Clic, C'est Chic Photography workshops for women. And since I can't seem to turn off my marketing and business consulting side, I've applied this naturally to photography for creative businesses. I can't wait to meet and work with you!

Manifest Dance Coach, Sociologist, Speaker & Magic Maker

Hey Beauty!

I’m Elisha, and I’m so delighted to connect with you here! If you are intrigued by dance and want to learn how to create the life and business of your dreams, you are in the right place!!! I believe in the power of dance to manifest, heal, form community, and (re)connect us with our inner JOY! I have experienced this first hand. See below for a (love) story about me…

I Believe…

I can change the world by standing in my power, doing what I love & making conscious choices
♦ That to heal our sweet Earth we all need to cultivate the divine feminine in ourselves, especially as women, and regain balance
♦ We all have a special purpose that is unique & fun that fills our soul
♦ We all have the keys to the shackles that hold us back from feeling free, radiant & abundant
♦ The fabric of the universe is made of Love, and we can all access eternal love & bliss at any time
♦ Movement and body connection is an important part of physical, mental & emotional health, manifestation and creation (Our dear body is a source of deep wisdom, and she is constantly giving us important messages and information, but we often don’t hear)

My Promise to You

I am the lantern who guides you down the path to your highest, greatest, Self and happiest most fulfilling life.  Sometimes it’s dark, tear-filled and scary.  Sometimes the path is lined with gorgeous flowers and juicy exciting moments.  I hold your magnificent vision and know that you can manifest it, even in moments when you feel disheartened.  There is always healing & discovery along the way, and that is part of your amazing soul growth journey.  No matter what, I believe in YOU and your brilliance. I believe in your big, bold & beautiful dreams.  And together we will dance our way there.

Certified Kids Yoga Teacher

Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Nellie began working with children more than 20 years ago. After receiving her first university degree from the University of Ottawa in Psychology and Religion, Nellie continued her studies at Concordia University in Montreal in Early Childhood and Elementary Education.  After graduating with honours in the program, Nellie subsequently worked at various prestigious private schools.

ZenKids Yoga was created after the search for a career that would combine Nellie’s love of Yoga and passion for teaching children, along with a flexible schedule that would allow her to be available to her family. Nellie’s goal in teaching kids’ Yoga is to help unfold in each child their natural potential, to help develop their self-confidence so they can share their own unique selves with the world. ZenKids Yoga classes encourage children to develop awareness of their individual expression of who they are, along with the physical benefits of Yoga. This all happens through creative, inspirational Yoga classes that include singing, games, silliness and giggles, in an atmosphere of respect and acceptance where everyone feels good and has fun!
