Yoga Nidra

These midday sessions are designed to rest your brain. No special outfit needed, stay in your work clothes and come and rest awhile. After a very short while, you will leave mentally refreshed and ready to tackle your next work shift.

Yoga Nidra is a restful session, enjoyed lying on the floor or sitting in a chair. There is no physical exertion, as the guided meditation results in easing mental tension.

Open to everyone; no previous experience in Yoga necessary

Restorative Yoga

Using extra props like cushions, blankets, and sandbags assists in deep physical and mental rest. Paying attention to regulating the in and exhale and taking a pause from the busyness of our lives, Restorative Yoga can take one into deep states of stillness, peace and tranquility. We practice staying close to the floor, so practitioners must be able to get down to the floor and up again without assistance.

~ led by Celeste

Sadhana: Meditation & Pranayama

The regular practice of mindfulness meditation with breathing practices to lay the foundation of stilling the mind is collectively called in Sanskrit: Sadhana.

In this early morning session, we will practice fundamental breathing practices and basic techniques of sitting comfortably.

Watching the rhythms of our breathing and observing the thought waves in the mind without attachment to these thoughts, allows the mind-field to calm and a peaceful state to emerge.

The session is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners. Chairs are available if sitting on the floor is not an option.

Tensegrity Repair Series

The Tensegrity Repair Series is a movement sequence designed by Gioia Irwin of Vancouver, BC, which focuses on tuning into the myofascial network of the body, and how it relates to our skeletal structure. Done mostly lying on the back, these movements help to tone and strengthen the core, breakdown knots and adhesions throughout the body, and rehydrate the fascia for greater joint mobility and overall balanced and connected body function. Relaxing, yet invigorating, the Tensegrity Repair Series can be helpful in recovery from injury, chronic pain, or stress related tension, and can also provide a stable base from which to grow your yoga or movement practice.

Suitable for all levels, including complete beginners

Yoga Chant and Ceremony

A time for supported reflection inspired by the yogic principle of Ishvara Pranidhana – surrender to a higher power – and the practice of turning inward, or Pratyahara. Mahāvīr will facilitate a meditative space, chanting Sanskrit verses common to yoga and sharing their beautiful translations. A simple ceremony of light will take place which represents yoga’s invitation to be in the present moment and to consider the presence of something deeper and more essential than our thoughts or self-image. Feel free to sit still or move in a way that respects other’s inner reflection. This session is offered as a gift, but also as an opportunity to practice generosity. If you find the session inspiring and worthwhile, feel free and encouraged to express that gratitude by making a donation no matter what size. Arrive and leave mindfully at any time during the session.

Meditation

The common states of fear, anxiety, depression, despair, restlessness, and numbness, to name a few, visit all of us; sometimes for a short while and sometimes they outstay their welcome. Meditation offers us a practical and meaningful way to relate to these mind states, and to help cultivate the opposite states of ease, contentment, love, and joy.

The evening offers meditation instructions, guided meditations, and useful suggestions for sitting positions. A Dharma talk is offered, and a brief time for discussion.

Please bring your own cushions and blankets or a shawl. Chairs are provided for those not wanting to sit on the floor.

This class is suitable for beginners or seasoned practitioners.

Shake Free TRE®

Come experience Shake Free TRE® – a simple and natural way to release stress and tension by resetting your nervous system through self induced shaking.

In our body and mind we carry tension from past trauma and injury. This tension is exhausting and weighs us down, ultimately affecting our health and prevents us from living our best life!

TRE® is a set of 7 simple exercises that were created by Dr. David Berceli. These exercises stimulate an instinctual shaking mechanism (tremor/vibration) in the body that releases deeply held tension patterns and brings the body and mind back to balance and harmony.

TRE® is meant to be a helpful tool you can use anytime you feel exhausted, tense, stressed or overwhelmed. Once you learn how to stimulate the tremors you can use them anytime you need to release tension and come back to a state of balance. You will be able to shake off unwanted energy and move forward with ease and vitality!

This class is $25 dollars and is limited to 8 participants.

To register please send an email. You will be asked to fill out a form to determine if TRE® is the right fit for you. There is also an option to book a private online session for beginners.

I look forward to connecting and sharing with you!

“Sometimes you don’t know the weight of something you have been carrying until you feel the weight of its release”
