A fun way to get active and try something new this summer as this class is open to ages 10 and up.
Rest is an essential part of a healthy and vibrant life; yet in our modern and busy world many of us do not find time to truly relax. In this workshop we will explore the importance of relaxation to our well being and learn practices to help us rest consciously.
First, Michelle will guide your through a movement practice designed to help you create space and prepare the body to rest and relaxation, followed by a blissful experience of sound therapy by Jenn.
This certified 200 hours Vinyasa Yoga training, blended with the core concepts of the oldest known healing principles of Ayurveda, is the training you have been waiting for.
You know that song where Liza sends Henry off to collect a pail of water only for Henry to discover that there is a hole in the bucket? And repeatedly he comes up against roadblocks and challenges to fix it? I’d say I’m having one of those ‘leaky bucket’ weeks myself.
Like pieces of a mystery jigsaw puzzle, understanding your dharma is a practice of seeing yourself not as a collection of broken bits, but rather colourful pieces and parts that uniquely fit together thus enabling you to fulfill your life’s purpose with a confidence and grace wrapped up in the truth at your heart.
We are immensely complex and layered beings, yet by way of the kosha, we can simplify our parts to more clearly see the truth of who we are. Imagine each kosha like five unique lampshades covering a light. The source of the light, is the truth of our selves. Each lampshade that layers on top of the one beneath has a different colour and density therefore changing the light we ‘see’.
Sitting at home with nothing to do, my habit was to watch the boob-tube and smoke. I didn’t want to smoke any more but still found myself doing so. That’s when crafting kicked off. I could never hold a smoke in my mouth while doing something with my hands, so keeping my hands busy was huge in helping me shift to break the negative habit.
When life hands out its troubles, as it does for all of us, we find ways of coping – increase your energy to deal with it, or decrease your energy to get away from the problem. It is an adaptation of the basic flight or flight response programmed into our survival instincts.
Yoga is not a religion. Yoga is a way of thinking and reflecting, of practicing and behaving, and the ultimate surrender in recognizing your Self.
My intention for starting this next chapter of my life is to not just create content that inspires you to learn more or to advance your career, but to help you see the truth of your potential and to boldly and gracefully express with honesty, your highest Self.
I’m no expert, nor will I ever claim to be, but that experience was traumatizing. Left alone I had no choice but to sit with truth of the experience.
I’m not sure where the past twenty four months have gone but they are, as they say, in the books. And with much of the last 14+ months filled with uncertainty, anxiety and fear as we all navigate this global pandemic, these last two years have also been a most incredible journey of community, friendship, support and togetherness, even when 6’ apart.
Ever notice sometimes that even through your eyes are wide open you are unaware of the many things right in front of you? To really see clearly is to see through a lens of wholeheartedness and empathy, void of illusion and denial. Illusion is the belief in something that is not true; denial is the failure to see the truth of what actually is.
Call them Saviours, Guardians, Holy Beings or Earth Angels, I believe that there are those who come into our lives at just the right moment who do just the right things, without necessarily knowing why, but who know in their hearts that they are to help.
