A Loving Spoonful Gets Lucky

Created by Colter Jones of Lucky's Doughnuts, the Layers of Pride doughnut is a rainbow-layered vanilla-bean-glazed doughnut, topped with a candy ribbon that represents the rainbow of the Pride flag.

The limited-run Layers of Pride doughnut will be available during the Pride Parade on Sunday, July 31 for a minimum $5 donation at A Loving Spoonful's gathering point at the Denman St. BMO Branch (958 Denman St.) from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

100% of proceeds from the sale of the Layers of Pride doughnut will benefit A Loving Spoonful's meal programs for men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in the Lower Mainland.

This is Lucky's Doughnuts fourth partnership with A Loving Spoonful. In February 2016, the company joined forces with the charity to create the hugely successful Valentine's Day doughnut. In 2015, they collaborated on a Pride doughnut and a Dining Out For Life Doughnut, all off which raised much-needed funds for the organization's healthy meal delivery programs.

Q&A With Jen From Oxygen Yoga

Posted on: May 13th, 2016 by The East Village

 

Oxygen Yoga East Vancouver

Oxygen Yoga is located at 2760 East Hastings Street. We recently spoke with its owner, Jen, to ask her about her work and passion for all things yoga and fitness.

Jen and was born and raised in Vancouver and has been practicing Yoga and Fitness with Oxygen since its conception in Maple Ridge. “I have loved the sense of community it offers,” she says.

"I love the energy that Oxygen Yoga offers and felt the need to bring this energy in to East Vancouver,” Jen tells us. "I chose this location as I believed this community needed a fitness facility at a central location. I love the community this area offers and couldn't imagine opening in any other area of Vancouver."

When we ask what motivates Jen, she says it comes from her desire to help others reach their fitness goals. "Whether it's just to get in to the studio as a first timer or having an experienced yogi wanting to expand their practice in to fitness type classes."

"Community, in regards to Yoga, is the coming together of like minded people sharing fitness goals, no matter how that goal looks like,” Jen explains. “(I hope to bring a) fun environment with a unique spin on Yoga and Fitness with an "I Love my Life" attitude."
