Revel: A Special NYE Yoga Class

with Natasha Allain     December 31, 2019     10:00am – 12:00pm

Come celebrate the past year and set powerful intentions for the year ahead in this special all-levels yoga flow class!

We will embody our intentions as we deepen our experience of familiar poses, clarifying what we want to bring in and foster in the new year. We will play with releasing movements and reflective holds providing space to let go of what no longer serves us.

Let us revel in the years passed and the years ahead, together.

Testimonials

I am in love with the studio and vibe of kindness and self-love at QSY. After trying several studios in the region, I know QSY is the right place for me as I am really enjoying being part of the community. My well-being has improved so much with this past month of unlimited yoga.

Kelly J

Taking up yoga has been the best decision I have made for myself. I can't believe how much more movement I have and I know I need to continue in order to have lots more movement. I had a pulled groin muscle and with stretching it correctly it is now fixed for the first time in two years. Unbelievable! I continue to stretch to get even more flexibility. I'm loving it. Thanks to you! You are awesome.

Deb

QSY is a unique and special place that embodies everything I could have hoped for as I embarked on my own personal yoga journey. It is a beautiful space that is warm, inclusive and accepting. From the second I walked into the reception area I knew this was a special place. Whether it be their careful choice of non-gendered language or the bathroom door reminders that all bodies are welcome here, their attention and commitment to social justice, inclusivity and issues of systemic oppression is clear.

Your Intro to Yoga course has made a huge impact on my life. I feel that I am learning the best technique, I am sleeping through the night, have very little back pain now, and what I have learned in your classes carries over into my life in many ways, in particular, into my violin teaching. So….my students are benefitting as well. Most of all, I feel more connected to myself, to people around me and to the earth.

Olga K

I just want to thank you SO much for all the energy and passion you put into teaching yoga. I have been doing yoga off and on for the past three years, but this past year was the best. Yoga has made me feel so alive and in-tune with my body and soul. Thanks for creating a rich learning environment!

Rachel

Leena, your ability to inspire and teach should not go unmentioned. What I have learned through you is unmeasurable. I am continually inspired by your energy, your enthusiasm, and your ability to create a comfortable and non-competitive learning environment. Thank you for your guidance and dedication to the practice.

Emma, I just wanted to thank you so much for your approach, your inclusivity, and the difference you made in me. I was very apprehensive about doing yoga (formally) because I was afraid of judgment, of my lack of ability, of a million things. I'm extremely fat-positive, active, and open, but I get stopped up really easily with criticism from others. I got so much from attending your classes at Queen Street Yoga over the summer. Not only was I challenged physically, but when I was/am unable to do something, I always felt encouraged by you in a completely non-judgmental, non-patronizing way. I did not expect to find this kind of safety in doing yoga formally at a studio. You do an amazing job of what you do and I hope your approach never changes.
