"Yoga/Meditation Room"

Many people practice yoga as an exercise for the physical body. This is great! You will derive the physical benefits: be it strengthening muscles, increasing range of motion by opening (stretching), losing weight, or increasing the function of your internal organs. However, you have the option, if and when you feel comfortable, to explore the full benefits of yoga, those for the mind, emotions, and the soul!

Explore the meaning of yoga: Connecting your Finite Self (mind and body) with your Infinite Self (soul) so that you experience yourself as     the fabulous, amazing being that you are!

Your body awareness will be deepened and you will find yourself feeling more calm, self-disciplined, have more mental focus, and contentment! The whole body becomes in-sync and functions optimally. The benefits are endless! 

My yoga classes compose of three elements for maximum benefits:
Pranayama (breathing techniques
Asana/Kriya (physical exercises)

Class Descriptions

All classes can be taught at all levels:  Gentle, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced 

Ashtanga Yoga is a set sequence of hatha postures brought over from Mysore, India to North America by Pattabhi Jois. Postures within each class are selected from the primary set sequence to fit into an hour. This sequence builds strength and flexibility.

Hatha Flow is a style of traditional hatha postures strung together in a flowing sequence. Taught at a level that is challenging and beneficial but that you are comfortable with.

Kundalini Yoga is a very powerful yoga of transformation. Is the yoga of awareness and unites the
mental, physical, and nervous (system) energies of the body and brings them under control of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely combines techniques of breath, physical postures, meditation, and energetic influences (hand and body locks) to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood.  It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.
"In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace your experience. Your mind may accept the words or it may not, but your consciousness will not accept just words." 
Yogi Bhajan

Outdoor Yoga which could potentially be hot yoga depending on the weather. Experience increased detoxification as you liberate even more sweat to cleanse your body.

Restorative Yoga is a very centering and calming practice beneficial for practitioners during
challenges or times of stress. We strengthen the nervous system in order to better respond to stress. We make use of props (pillows, blankets, blocks) whereby those who are ill, injured, experiencing stress, or differently-abled can practice with little or no strain but still gain access to the benefits of the practice. Positions are held for a longer period of time and are executed slowly and mindfully. We practice different types of mindfulness and meditation throughout the class.

Yin Yoga a nourishing practice that complements a busy yang lifestyle, nurturing calmness and balance for the mind, body, and spirit.  Yin involves long held poses on the mat.  Props support your body so that your muscles release tension and you can delve deep into the connective tissues of the body.  Awareness is explored, compassion is cultivated, and deep healing is liberated. 
Yin and Meditation: a deep yin stretch followed by a brain strengthening meditation.

Pre-Natal Yoga Create strength, empowerment, and connection as you honour your changing body
and your growing baby during this special time of life.  Cultivate love, compassion, and peace.  This class helps ease the mind and the body, breathing techniques, relaxation, and postures help to ground and prepare for childbirth.  This class is so lovely with a group of mothers-to-be who come together and support each other!
