Yoga for Anxiety & Depression (7 wks for $100)

Using simple yoga postures, breath awareness, meditation, and mindfulness, this course aims to help you deepen your mind/body connection. The act of releasing physical tension and moving your body in new ways can help you move through stuck emotions, create new mental patterns, and bring new awareness into your life.

Each week the class will gradually build upon a set of basic yoga postures, appropriate for all levels and abilities. Through the postures, breathing, and meditative exercises, you’ll learn more about your body’s responses to stress. You may discover techniques that help manage mental/emotional patterns and increase groundedness, calmness, and emotional well-being.

Our classes are intended to be a complement to, but not a replacement for, professional mental health support.

Yoga for Round Bodies (7 wks for $100)

This course will offer clear and thoughtful modifications of poses for students with round bodies, to make more of the poses and sequences of yoga accessible and doable. Great for beginners and intermediate students, this course is aimed at creating a comfortable environment in which to build strength, flexibility, and balance, specifically with the round body in mind. This class is not about weight loss, but about honouring our bodies and creating an environment where all bodies can do all poses. Beginners welcome. Please note that our space is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible as we are on the third floor of our building, with no elevator.

Deep Core Recovery after Childbirth (7 wks for $100)

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 pre-registered 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.

Beginners welcome.

Restoring Mind & Body: Meditation and Restorative Yoga (7 wks for $100)

Refresh your mind and give your body a chance to deeply relax. Each class will include gentle movements to release tension, seated mindfulness meditation, and gentle restorative postures. Restorative yoga postures are comfortable resting positions using bolsters and blankets. With mindfulness and deep breathing, these postures may help your body restore and repair itself.

Beginners and those with an existing meditation practice are welcome.

Strength & Flow: Intermediate Yoga (7 wks for $100)

This yoga class will challenge the idea that passive stretching is the best way to increase flexibility. We will explore building strength through different ranges of motion to help you feel more stable and easeful in movement on and off your yoga mat. In this course, you’ll learn creative techniques to bring more balance to often neglected muscle groups. You’ll use blankets, resistance bands, and various props to help you get stronger.

4+ months of previous yoga experience recommended.
