    Gentle Yoga- Rest and Renew

    We start with a centering to bring us to our practice and then move into a gentle yoga practice that facilitates tension release, replenishes and helps to stabilize joints, and increases overall mobility. Adjustments are made to accommodate all bodies, so this class is accessible to anybody and is as good for people new to yoga as it is for people who have been practicing for years. Focus is on building awareness in your practice and developing an understanding of what works best for you. A variety of yoga styles may be practiced, and we finish each class with an extended savasana (relaxation).

    Restorative and Yoga Nidra

    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 uses Restorative Yoga postures to prepare the body rest and surrender. Sandy has been guiding students to calmness and wellbeing since 2008 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.

    Yin Yoga

    Pamela's Yin class

    A 90-min Yin Yoga practice suitable for all ages and experience levels. This practice is designed to create awareness of the deeper tissues including the network of fascia that connects our bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles and supports the organs. We move into and out of the postures slowly and hold them for 3-7 minutes. Holding a position enables us to take stock of what and where we feel sensations, adjust as appropriate and then relax into stillness in the posture. Breath Coaching is also provided which helps us focus on specific areas of tension and recover mobility where it has been lost. No two bodies are alike and in fact our bodies are different left to right. This practice ensures a deeper experience for each student - no two will look alike in any posture and we use props to suit each individual experience.

    Sound Healing, Group Reiki and Guided Meditation

    Let your cares go and sink into the relaxing and healing sounds of resonant instruments, infused with a little chanting, reiki and drumming.

    Together we will raise our vibrations and let our inner moonbeams shine brightly!

    About Sound Journeys:
    Sound journeys massage our bodies, minds and spirits with healing sounds. This can help our noisy "monkey minds" get quiet as we shift to a Theta brainwave state from our usual Beta and Alpha states.
    This is where we relax deeply and experience peace and healing on a cellular level.

    What to expect:
    Plan on relaxing in a way that ordinary life can make it hard to do. Come without expectations of yourself or others and bring an open mind and heart.
    We will set our personal intentions, and direct our collective energy to release our inner light and highest frequency for the world.
    This will be a sensory fusion of nature sounds and deep vibrations. A 32" wind gong, crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, chimes, Ocean Drum, hand drum, bells and more will be used during this sound meditation experience to bathe you in beautiful resonance!

    We will also start you on this journey with a guided meditation and infuse the morning with healing holy fire reiki healing.
    Your guides: Tracey Underhill and Krista Sartoris

    SomaYin blends the gentle movement of Hanna Somatics with the static stretching of Yin Yoga. We will begin by tuning into the body and then gently unwinding the tissue through a gentle shortening and lengthening contraction called a pandiculation. These pandiculations help rewire parts of the body to which we have lost connection. This loss of connection, known as somato-motor amnesia can happen in an attempt to "turn down the volume" on areas of discomfort as a result of old injuries, compensation patterns, and postural dysfuntions. The small slow movements of somatics help retrain this connection. We will then use the postures of yin yoga to apply a gentle prolonged stretch to the region.


    Each practice will have a focus on a different region of the body , such as upper back, neck and shoulders or lower back and hips.

    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.

    My yoga journey started at a young age, with my Aunt Martha teaching yoga in her own studio as a Master Hatha Yoga Instructor. During my thirties, my yoga practices stopped while raising 4 active teenagers and working full time. In 2014, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and resumed my yoga practice during my chemotherapy and radiation treatments. According to my doctors, my recovery was exceptional, and in large part, credit yoga, mediation and staying positive for my gift of life. After my full recovery, I wanted to give back, and help others going through cancer treatments. After discussions with my two yoga mentors (Emelie and Amanda), I decided to attend Kripalu School of Yoga for my initial 200 hours yoga training and I have not looked back since. Yoga is a special gift in life, and I want to share it with all interested in the practice. The joy, peace and inner-self connection of yoga is what the world could use more of today.

    Breagh recently completed her 200-hour Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training with Anuttara Yoga, under the guidance of Guruji Raj Kumar of the Shivoham Tradition. From a young age, Breagh has been practicing yoga and what began as purely a physical practice for her has since grown into a philosophy of life that supports her in every moment. Breagh is passionate about all that this beautiful, ancient practice has to offer and is excited to create a trauma sensitive space where students feel safe to fully connect with themselves. Committing to an open, humble, supportive and creative environment, Breagh hopes to instill a sense of autonomy within her students where they feel empowered to show up as they are and follow their own intuitive wisdom as they are guided through the practice.

    Flow Yoga

    “Erin began practicing yoga in 2005 and continues to learn that yoga represents so much more than a physical practice on the mat. Erin’s first practice was a Gentle Vinyasa Flow in a candlelit studio. The comfort, calm and peace that was found in that class made her curious to learn more about yoga and its benefits. Erin began to witness within herself that changes were taking place in how she saw herself from within and how she saw the world. Loving kindness, compassion and vulnerability were present. As she continued to experience the impact of yoga she knew she wanted to guide others in practice. She completed a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Germany with a focus on Vinyasa, Restorative and Yin. Each of these styles have served her well throughout her life, supporting her through pain, fear, anxiety, depression, illness, love, joy, laughter and play always allowing for teachings in surrender and presence. She has learned that yoga is a healing tool that she hopes to share alongside each of her students

    Do you offer private classes or community events?

    Yes! Some of our teachers offer private one on one lessons. If this is of interest to you, please email the teacher directly to inquire about scheduling and cost.
    Community work- some of our teachers are out and about doing great work in the community- watch for them elsewhere, and please contact them directly if you are interested in booking a session for your event or workplace

    What should I wear?

    Dress comfortably in loose, stretchy clothes that allow you to breathe and move freely.

    Are there change rooms?

    Yes! You can change in our bathroom!

    Studio Etiquette

    1. Arrive 15 min prior to class.
    2. Enter & arrange props quietly.
    3. Save discussions for after class.
    4. Turn off devices (not vibrate).
    5. Don't judge yourself or others for forgetting any of these, we are all here to have fun and grow :)

    Is BWC a scent free space?

    We use natural unscented products to clean the studio and props. We consider ourselves to be a scent reduced space.

    There is some use of essential oils in The Reiki Room with consent of client.

    Please be aware of the effect your scented body products may have on others!
