This is a Google calendar. It can be added to your calendar or printed. If you are looking on your phone please turn screen sideways to see full schedule. Apparently IPhones don't show the far side of the monthly calendar so I have chosen the agenda version. You can click on the tab in the top right corner if you are wanting the Month view.

Always check the schedule to ensure you are coming at the right time. There are pre-scheduled dates where a class does not run. Please inform yourself.

Please do yourself the favour of being at least 5 minutes early.

If you find yourself late:
Please take a moment outside, make sure your phone is OFF (no vibrate), shoes and jacket off, pause to make sure we have completed the opening meditation and then quietly join in.
If you are more than 10 minutes late and would like to still come, you MUST to do a warm up for yourself for physical safety.(no brand new students late please.) 
Time cannot be taken from those who are present on time to catch someone up who has arrived late. (Asteya - one of the 5 Yamas)

“Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don’t transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.” ~ Donna Farhi

YOGA STYLES YOU WILL FIND WITHIN THE PRACTICES:


Yin Yoga:

A style of yoga which balances the more Yang like practices and lifestyles. Yin is a slower, deeper, more meditative practice. It can hold poses for as little as 1 minute and as long as 9+ minutes. These longer poses are used to open the more “plastic” tissues and spaces within your body. Passively settle into the poses supported by props to allow myofascial/connective tissue and joints to find ease and release. Come close to your edge say hello and allow the mind and body to settle into the experience. Balance of Mind, Body and Thought can sometimes be the more difficult practice but well worth the benefits. If you are hyper flexible or in your 3rd trimester of pregnancy ask about other classes.

Hatha Yoga:

All yoga extends from Hatha Yoga. Ha (Sun) Tha (Moon). A balance of breath combined with posture, strength and softness. Most styles of yoga come from Hatha. You can use a Hatha practice to build strength and flexibility, a calmer mind and the ability to find steadiness within your experience. Begin with your breath and expand your practice from there.

Restorative: 

Restorative Yoga is a healing , relaxing yoga providing gentle, supported, opening poses. Whether you are looking to reduce the stress of a busy day, or life lived in a city, or heal, this practice will allow you to reduce strain on injuries, relieve chronic pain, or reduce stress on and within the body. If you have limited mobility this practice can be for you. Through breath, poses supported for long periods of time by many props and gentle movement you will find a place to relax deeply and find a new way to refresh and renew. Open to any ability level. 

 

Yoga Nidra:

Sometimes called Yoga Sleep, Yoga Nidra is a deep meditative practice.  Starting in fully supported relaxation pose you will be taken on a journey of healing and release. Slowly releasing to the space that floats somewhere between sleep and presence.  Open the deepest part of your soul to the possibilities of life, creativity and change.  Some say 1 hour of Yoga Nidra is equal to about 4 hours of sleep.

*Classes that contain elements of Yoga Nidra include, Breathing Series, Restorative Yoga, Some Yin classes

Vinyasa Yoga:

Vinyasa Yoga comes from Hatha but in a North American perspective is sometimes thought of as "Power" Yoga. The flow of movement is guided by the connection of breath and body allowing you to shift fluidly from one motion, or pose to the next, creating the fire within your body through a deep understanding of the internal experience. Anyone can do this,you simply connect breath to movement.  You will find that in a very short time you will be ready to progress deeper into your practice.

Kundalini Lite: 

Although the teachings are based on those of Yogi Bhajan I teach the practice of Kundalini not from the word for word teachings of Yogi Bhajan but as a practice which works within the framework of our lives at this present moment in time. Kundalini helps create strong bodies and in short time releases the energy of the Kundalini (coiled snake of energy at the root chakra) giving individuals the ability to move into each day and each life with strength and stability.  It is a strong practice that requires no previous training, just an open heart and mind. Kriyas (or sets) are combined with the chanting of mantras and/or some movement. Bring an open heart and the intent to let go of all the things that hold you back from your life. 

Prenatal Yoga (all classes accessible to those who are pregnant):

Yoga for women at every stage of pregnancy. Learn how to allow for the changes happening in your body in a fun and supportive way. This is a time to be enjoyed and celebrated. Take this time to connect with your baby through the rhythm of your breath and the movement of your body.  Find the strength that is within all of us so that you can be present and aware at the birth of this child who has chosen you. (Always let teachers know you are pregnant or if you have recently been pregnant so they can give the best suggestions for your body and the changes it may be going through). Please check with your doctor before attending classes,make sure they agree that Yoga would be good for you through your pregnancy.

*Almost all classes are accessible to Women who are pregnant. Exceptions can be Yin (you can come but the stretches can be too deep, not recommended at all into the 3rd trimester), Breathing Series (some of the deep breathing is unnecessary and possibly not good for someone who is pregnant).
