Connecting Through Yoga
It is with gratitude that I am able to share the Yoga teachings that have been borrowed from India.
I have also been blessed to have great mentors and teachers that have generously shared their knowledge with me.
“Yoga” is the Sanskrit word for “Union”. This ancient practice dates back to pre-vedic Indian traditions, possibly in the Indus valley civilization around 3000 BCE.
Yoga continues to gain popularity because its themes are timeless and accessible to everyone. Although the physical postures are the most practiced limb of yoga in the west, yoga offers so much more. Yoga can provide the tools you need to refine the relationship you have with yourself and how you act in the world.
When I teach yoga, I create space for participants to have their own experience. While using a student centered approach, I invite you to connect with your breath, encourage curiosity while practicing kindness towards yourself and honouring your body. During your exploration, you will witness some magic when you connect to your heart.
The Benefits of Yoga
Some of the benefits of practicing yoga can be subtle or undeniable such as:
A feeling of lightness and centeredness
Improved respiration, energy, vitality and ability to manage stress
Increased awareness and ability to focus
Increased range of motion
Yogic breath can be used as a resource in self regulation
May improve self esteem
Better regulate your body's reaction to stress and fatigue
What to expect in my yoga classes:
Everyone is welcome, you don’t need previous yoga experience. Lots of options are given to allow you to choose what works best for your body in that moment. Check my schedule to see where and when you can join me. All you need is a yoga mat and comfortable clothing.
Classes by Donation
Where possible, I am offering my services by donation.
I realize this is somewhat confronting for many people. My intention in offering my services by donation is not to undercut other practitioners or to devalue the services. I do it to remove economic barriers that may exist for the person seeking the services that I offer. Also, this allows choice for those receiving the services to decide what the value is for them in the offering they received.
