  • Yoga for Everybody

    A yoga class for all skill levels that is geared each week to the participant needs and wants. Some weeks it will be a challenging class with lots of standing poses, at other times it will be a gentle flow style class. We may work solely on back tension, or shoulders, or hip openers.

    We don't know what we're going to do, only that everyone is welcome.

    Beginners welcome. Physical limitations can usually be accommodated.

    Sunday mornings 9.30 - 10.45 am with Marleen.

  • Kundalini Yoga

    Kundalini yoga is an uplifting practice that uses various breathing techniques, physical exercises (kriyas), chanting, and meditation to help strengthen your immune, nervous, and glandular systems. By moving the energy that lays dormant at the base of your spine one increases their overall sense of well being and self-awareness.There’s lot of variety from class to class and Kundalini can be enjoyed by everyone!

    Modifications and the use of props make these classes suitable for everyone.

    Monday mornings 9 - 10.15 am with Pam

  • Gentle Yoga for Strength & Mobility

     A flow type class that aims to loosen up the joints and the muscles while gently building strength for more demanding poses. Matching the movements to the breath helps foster awareness of the body and how it responds to the things we do in class. This way we work in harmony with the body rather than force the mind over matter. Recommended for people who need a more gentle approach to building strength and fitness and who value stress release as much as increasing fitness. Class will generally be geared to the students' needs.
     
    Beginners welcome. Physical limitations can usually be accommodated.
     
    Tuesday mornings 9 - 10.15 am with Marleen.
  • Restorative Yoga

    Restorative Yoga is a passive form of yoga in which bolsters, blankets, other props and hands-on, gentle assists are used to facilitate fully supported poses so the body can enjoy deep and purposeful rest. Restorative Yoga is a great practice for the overactive mind and body, for healing old injuries, and as an incredible salve for emotional distress and anxiety. Restorative Yoga drops the body down into the parasympathetic nervous system that allows overall balance to return to the body by way of deep relaxation and letting go.

    This class is an hour and a half and is open to all levels.

    Physical limitations can be accommodated.

    Tuesday evenings 7.30 - 9 pm with Laura.

  • Let's Have a Ball! Yoga

    A fun, fit yoga flow incorporating an exercise ball.
     
    this unique class incorporates a stability exercise ball for students to find support, core strengthening and deep supportive stretching.

    Beginners are welcome. Physical limitations can usually be accommodated. 

    Wednesday mornings 9 am to 10.15 pm with Laura.

    Starts September 12th. 

  • Yoga for Stress Resilience

    "Almost everyone knows what it feels like to be stressed. And stress causes or exacerbates many health conditions. In this class we aim to optimize our yoga practice to increase our tolerance for stress, on and off the mat. It features movement, breathing and centering techniques to first bring our nervous systems to a state of balance and then looks to expand our window of tolerance by mindfully increasing the challenge in our practice. With sustained practice this yoga class may literally change your brain!

    Beginners welcome. Physical limitations can be accommodated. This class is trauma-informed.

    Wednesday evenings, 7.15 -8.30 pm, with Marleen

  • Deep Stretch

    In this Yin style yoga class we don't just release tension in the muscles, but also in the connective tissues. Daily stress and emotional stress tends to build up in the body until it gets tight and inflexible or even starts to hurt.

    This class is geared towards relieving that tension, facilitating easier movement and a better flow of energy. The stretches are held for several minutes with the help of props. This class is great for those who are dealing with stress, insomnia and who feel tight and inflexible.

    There is an optional 20 minute warm up with Sun Salute Variations before the start of this class. There is no extra charge for this.

    Beginners welcome. Physical limitations can be accommodated.

    Friday mornings 9 - 10.15 am (Sun Salute Variations start at 8.40 am) with Marleen.

    • Aim to be 5 minutes early for class, so you can be set up at starting time.
    • Turn off your cell phone.
    • If you're on call, please put your phone on vibrate and place it next to your mat. Step outside to answer any calls.
    • If you're late to class, please wait until beginning meditation is over before you set up.
