VIRTUAL Intro to Yoga (7 wks)

Our Virtual Intro to Yoga course is great for brand new beginners, those restarting their practice after a long break, and anyone new to practicing alignment-based yoga.

The focus is on standing poses and key principles of alignment to increase strength, balance, stamina, and flexibility. Intro to Yoga classes will build progressively from week to week to empower you to move deeper into your practice in a safe and consistent way. Classes also incorporate techniques and restful restorative poses to release tension and reduce stress.

Brand-new beginners welcome!

The aim of our Virtual Courses is to empower you to learn new methods of self-care during this unusual time and provide opportunities for community connection. We have designed these courses to prioritize both interaction and building new habits. The online format includes both interactive live-stream classes (where you can ask questions and hear from fellow students), as well as a variety of practice videos to do at your own pace and incorporate into your life. The best part? You will have access to all the practice videos (including recordings of the live-stream classes) for one year after your course ends, so you can continue to practice at home.

A computer, tablet, or smartphone and internet connection is required to participate, and a smartphone or webcam and microphone are recommended in order to interact with the teacher during live-streams. The online platform is very user-friendly, and we will provide you with instructions for getting started.

VIRTUAL Beyond Flexibility (7 wks)

Take a journey towards greater physical freedom and ease in everyday life, sports, and yoga in this course that goes beyond mere flexibility. If you want to change how your body works, stretching isn't going to cut it - and this is where mobility training comes in. Virtual sessions will include some yoga flow and a little education, but will focus on targeted and precise joint mobilization work that will give you new experiences of strength and change your range of motion.

Many of us come to yoga as a way to connect with our bodies, only to find that the poses can be extremely challenging if you're at all inflexible. We all know that getting the "deepest expression" of a pose is not the point of yoga, but increasing your physical capacities is still a worthy goal towards living better as a human animal.

VIRTUAL Deep Core Recovery (7 wks)

Whether you’re pregnant, recently gave birth, or have had a baby in the last decade, maintaining and regaining core strength can be a challenge. Functional core recovery is not about having six-pack abs, but being able to move with ease and properly support the spine and internal organs.

In this 7-week virtual course you will learn key movements that will strengthen your core from the inside out, leading to a stronger, more stable middle. We’ll discuss Diastasis recti (abdominal separation), pelvic floor issues, and how the muscles and connective tissue can be healed. You will also learn which movements to avoid and how to modify a yoga practice to help heal your core.

This virtual course is for anyone who is on a path to recovering from physical or emotional trauma. The class aims to give participants tools to understand how trauma affects the body and to let go of trauma stored in the body through movement. Trauma may seem like a loaded word, but it is something that affects many of us through major losses, accidents, violence, or other major life stresses.

The practice will consist of gentle movements, simple postures, and breath awareness. These elements of traditional hatha yoga are modified to build a trauma survivor’s sense of empowerment and cultivate a more positive relationship to one's body. Everything in this virtual class is optional and beginner-friendly.

This course is based on the evidence-based methodology of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga. While taught by a Registered Psychotherapist, the course itself is not Group Therapy. As an adjunctive therapy, the course is not intended as a replacement for working with a qualified therapist. However, during this time of increased trauma and stress due to COVID-19, we are adding a version of this course that includes Virtual Group Therapy for those who wish to have that added support.

For those wanting to go deeper in their process and receive more support, this option gives you the Virtual Yoga for Trauma Recovery Course plus four weeks of Virtual Group Therapy facilitated by Nicole, who is a Registered Psychotherapist. The four sessions of group therapy will take place on weeks 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the course. These are the weeks when you have pre-recorded content instead of live-streamed classes.

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves a therapist working with several people at the same time. Group therapy helps people work through problems by interacting with a therapist and a group of individuals with similar struggles. In a safe, confidential setting, each group member can share personal experiences, feelings, and issues and receive feedback and support from the rest of the group.

We may all be experiencing some form of helplessness and fear, such as denial and shock, during this very unique and very unusual time in the world. When traumatic events happen (such as COVID-19), it may bring up other symptoms and patterns of behaviour associated with past traumas. This group is appropriate for those who have experienced grief and loss, trauma, addiction, symptoms of isolation, feelings of shame, loneliness, or anyone that feels they would benefit from group therapy while attending Virtual Yoga for Trauma Recovery.

Maximum 12 participants in group therapy. Prices above include the Virtual Course and 4 sessions of Virtual Group Therapy. You can request a Psychotherapy receipt for the entire price (course + group therapy) for insurance purposes.
