Alternative & Holistic Health Service
Blue Dog Yoga and Healing was developed by Caron Shepley, yoga guru, energy coach and animal lover. She is dedicated to help people optimize their body, mind and spirit with educational workshops, yoga classes, crystal chakra balancing sessions and more. As a passionate animal lover, Caron also wants to help animals, big and small, optimize themselves allowing for synergy among all sentient beings. The "blue dog" in Blue Dog Yoga and Healing was Caron's beloved childhood dog (who accidentally but happily got "shampooed" with blue finger paint) and was the most nurturing and patient dog any child could hope for. The services that Caron provides are dedicated to this joyful, loving and temporarily blue dog...
SUP is an acronym for "Stand Up Paddleboard". SUPing is currently one of the fastest-growing water sports. If you have mastered your regular yoga class, try leaving the gym or studio and joining a SUP yoga class. While originating on the beaches of Hawaii in the 1960s, today you can find SUP yoga classes inland as well. A great way to get and stay fit, SUP Yoga classes work the legs, core, arms, and back as you try to stay on board and propel yourself. The 10 to 12-foot-long paddle boards have been dubbed "the floating yoga mat" and SUP yoga devotees describe the experience as relaxing, meditative, joyful, and free.
Classes are held at the James Dick Quarry located at 17847 Hurontario St., just south of Caledon Village. You can BYOB (bring your own board) or rent one. Classes are on Mondays at 4:30pm (Dawn) and 6:00pm (Dawn) and Wednesdays at 4:30pm (Caron) and 6:00pm (Alex). Classes start on Monday, June 14 and go until September 29th.
Because of social distancing guidelines this year, we can not help you hook your board to the buoy lines in preparation for the yoga portion of the paddleboard class. A short video explaining the hook-up procedure can be found here:
Caron can help your fur-baby optimize his or her body, mind, and spirit with an Live Animal Communication session. Sessions are done from a distance (similar to Reiki distance treatments.

Crystal therapy can promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Crystals do this by positively interacting with your body's energy field or chakra. Each chakra holds a unique vibration as do individual crystals. If the chakra is out of balance or is blocked it will not vibrate optimally. In a chakra measurement and balancing reading for animals, Caron session includes:
This session is done from a distance (like distance Reiki) and following the session, Caron will send you a report of the session.

A Spirit Animal is characterized as a teacher or messenger that comes in the form of an animal and has a personal relationship to an individual. Your Spirit Animal's role is to provide “medicine” to the recipient in the form of guidance and wisdom. A Power Animal is an animal that provides protection and inner strength. It is believed that you do not choose these 2 animals, rather they choose you. Animal Totems are believed to be the animals that we feel a very strong connection with and can influence us throughout our lives and step forward to give us guidance in various life situations.
Shamans worldwide have relied on the guidance, wisdom, and symbolism of spirit animals for thousands of years. Once you understand who your Spirit Animals, Power Animals and Animal Totems are, you can call on them to assist you in challenging situations or when you need guidance and/or protection.
A Spirit Animal Reading includes 3 parts:
Today, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is everywhere, on every stretch of water deep enough to dig a paddle into. And folks continue to enjoy time on the water with their pets. We have seen dogs, cats, pigs, turtles, seals, and manatees all getting in on the action. But it’s our canine companions that enjoy it the most! Here at Blue Dog Yoga, our furry friends always take centre stage, not just in our name! For our Caledon Village SUP & PUP club, here's what you need to know if you want to give it a try:
Your dog must wear a life jacket. This is a must even if your dog is a good swimmer. Limited numbers of doggie life jackets are available for a small fee.
If you don't have a paddleboard, that's OK, board rentals are also available.
Neither you nor your dog has been on a paddleboard before? That's OK! I am a certified paddleboard instructor with my pockets full of treats, so I can give both of you lots of tips to make the paddling experience a PAW-sitive experience for you and your dog!
