Kundalini: Awaken energy from the base of the spine through breath work & body movement to cleanse the energy centres as well as internal organs through the use of specific yogic practices, intend to eat mindfully. Excellent way to eliminate toxins and create an elated state in your being.

Meditation – Awareness of internal, subtle energy flow. Creating a state of inner non-resistance. These philosophies are explored to experience our awareness of self & world.

Yoga I: Suitable for beginner participants, starting a personal practice by developing an understanding of yoga. Excellent way to dissipate tension!

Yoga II+: A powerful and flowing practice combining energy direction & deeper meditation. Produces the by-products of body – mind strength & flexibility. A minimum consistent practice of one year. Less explanations and more internal/intuitive direction from the self.

Gentle Yoga: (No experience necessary)
A series of restorative postures to open and release tension. This class is geared toward students with mobility issues, athletes, obesity, elderly and pregnant.

Yoga 4 Young Athletes: For pre-teens 9-11 years of age. Yoga postures & breath techniques will enhance & support the body mind for all sports (including hockey, soccer, figure skating & dance)

PARTNER YOGA!

In Partner Yoga one person is the giver, the other the receiver. The receiver is always in charge & relays information about how much/little support & depth they need. The giver needs to be receptive & in tune with the receivers non-verbal & verbal cues. Both participants will benefit by switching roles for each pose.

WHY PARTICIPATE?

Partner Yoga is an effective way to experience a sense of support & connection to one another. The assistance brings greater alignment awareness, depth & satisfaction to any yoga practice. * In the past we have had sisters, mothers, daughters, friends & couples join!
