Kundalini Yoga & Meditation
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is a powerful technology for personal transformation. Profound effects and benefits can be experienced in just a single practice. This practice is accessible to all body types, as any of the postures can be substituted with visualization and breath coordination.
Each Kundalini Yoga class will consist of several components:
-Kriya (a series of physical movements designed to bring about a desired effect, of which there are many)
There are a myriad of Kundalini Yoga meditations which are generally more involved than simply sitting still and observing your thoughts. These meditations can involve movement, mudra (hand position), mantra, and chanting. We will typically deeply relax for 7 minutes, followed by an 11 minute meditation.
Tea will be served after class and everyone will have an opportunity to connect with one another and to share from their experience.

Lunch Break Yoga (Gentle Kripalu Yoga)
In this class Betsy will relax you from your morning and send you back for your afternoon by utilizing gentle Kripalu Yoga which incorporates the practice of learning to be fully present in the moment. It's a form of training yourself to use deliberate muscles through breathing and helps move you toward a state of compassionate, non judgmental awareness. In essence this yoga helps you to "stay present" both on and off the yoga mat. This class is appropriate for all levels

Meditation @ Noon
This is a drop in class for experienced meditators and those with no prior experience. Come and share a guided half hour meditation in our lovely space with Shiona, and experience the benefit of quieting the mind and body.
Entrance is by donation

Mindful Flow is a class where we can take our time.
This gentle, flowing class is perfect for beginners or intermediate students. We move with the breath. Some use a chair or other props. The goal is to access movement, despite injury or mobility issues, in order to promote the movement of fluid and healing within. We take our time and find the poses that work for our body, while inhaling and exhaling with each movement. This class is a trauma-informed class. Beth Whalen is a Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher (CMMT) and Experienced-Registered Yoga Teacher with almost 400 hours of yoga teachings to her credit (E-RYT200+). Beth herself has endured multiple injuries in her past, physical as well as emotional injuries. With her RYT training, Beth has committed to offering classes that are curated with gentle flowing sequences, which hold and nurture us in a safe, empathic space, Beth's classes are for ANY body to access movement and healing.

Cynthia's Yin class
Come and stretch out the connective tissue in these delicious classes, These long holds, done low to the ground, in seated or lying postures, ground and release the body and soothe the mind.
With Cynthia- firstname.lastname@example.org
Emelie's Yin class
Yin yoga is a contemplative and calming practise. There are no standing poses; the work is done slowly and poses are held for five minutes, or longer, to allow us to reach the connective tissues of the body - fascia, tendons, ligaments and bones - and to stimulate the movement of chi, or energy, along the meridians to the organs.
With Emelie- email@example.com
A practice designed to allow us to become aware of the deeper tissues in our bodies, including our bones, joints, ligaments and the network of fascia that holds everything together. We come into and out of Yin forms slowly and hold them for 3-5 minutes (longer with continued practice). Holding position enables us to take stock of what we feel, make adjustments as appropriate, then relax into stillness in the form creating space where stresses have bunched our fibres. Just as no two bodies are alike, our left and right sides are not alike so the use of props in this practice ensures a deeper experience. No two students will look alike in any form. Suitable for all levels of experience.
With Pamela- firstname.lastname@example.org
Yoga Nidra is deep rest for the body, mind and spirit. Similar to guided meditation, this practice is a restorative style of yoga that takes the student beyond relaxation accessing all levels of being. Sandy has been guiding students to calmness and wellbeing for ten years, helping them access deep peace, intuition and joy. In addition, as a Reiki Master/Teacher, Sandy holds space for her students using ancient symbols to help transmit Universal healing energy. Nothing to do but lie down, listen and receive.
No experience is necessary
Regular classes during the week are 60 minutes. Longer 90 minute classes once or twice per month- please watch the schedule for dates and times.
With Sandy- email@example.com

Are you curious about mantras and how you can use them in your everyday life? Are you interested in deepening or beginning a mantra practice? Are you ready to be soothed by the healing sound of your own voice? Throughout this 6-week class, Elizabeth will show you the powerful world of mantras. Your understanding of mantra will blossom and deepen as you experience and explore different ways you can use them (guided chants, call and response, intentional listening and other modalities). Each class will contain elements of breath work, sound work, gentle movement and immersion in beautiful music. Mantras enliven and heal the body and reassure the soul. If you receive what you learn and incorporate mantras into your everyday life, the power of the mantra will be with you well beyond the end of the class.

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness is all about learning to stay connected to the current moment and increasing your awareness of ingrained patterns of thinking and behaviour. If we can learn to recognize when our “doing mind” takes over, this will allow us to respond rather than react to whatever situation it is that we are in. Think of all the wasted mental energy spent dwelling in the past or living in the future. Both of these patterns of thinking can take away from our life which is unfolding only in the present moment.
