IN-PERSON Yoga & Self-Care for Mental Health (7 wks)

The registration deadline for this course has passed.

This listing is for the In-Person version of this course. A Virtual-Only version is also available.


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 this course 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.

Brand-new beginners welcome! Keep a notebook handy and something to write with. Our classes are intended to be a complement to, but not a replacement for, professional mental health support.

In-Person 7-Week Course Overview:

This listing is for the In-Person version of this course. This 7-week course includes 4 In-Person classes alternating with 3 weeks of online videos. All videos (plus recordings of the live classes) are yours to keep for a year.

Our In-Person classes follow strict physical distancing and cleaning protocols. We have a very large, well-ventilated room, and we are limiting class sizes to provide more than 2 metres between each mat. In the event of a second wave of COVID or any closures to our physical location, we will deliver the course Virtually. No refunds will be given for In-Person classes that must switch to Virtual-Only.

What the Course Includes:

Weeks 1, 3, 5, and 7 will be live classes attended in person. These are interactive classes with opportunities for questions/feedback and connection with your instructor and classmates. Live classes will be recorded and available online afterwards if you are unable to make the class time.

Weeks 2, 4, and 6 will be opportunities for you to practice along with specially created videos to review and build on your knowledge. You can practice these once or several times, and all the videos, including recordings of live classes, are yours to keep for a year. Additionally, on these weeks Marg will lead a Talking Circle on Zoom to share your reflections and experiences with the group.

Tech Requirements:

A computer, tablet, or smartphone and internet connection is required to participate in weeks 2, 4, and 6. The online platform is very user-friendly, and two days before your course begins we will provide you with instructions for getting started.
