Each month holds a unique workshop towards the end of the month. This month’s workshop will focus on building a meditation practice and positive affirmations, which we will then use in the final part of the workshop in a yoga nidra practice. Yoga nidra is a practice for about 15- 20 minutes in savasana, while you are talked through body awareness, bringing you to a place of super consciousness, where you then are able to mentally plant your personal affirmation. This practice leaves you feeling as though you have just had 8 hours sleep.

The final gift you will receive at the end of the month is a special yoga nidra recording so that you may continue to use this practice at home.

During the month you will receive:
  • 2 personal shiatsu treatments – Shiatsu can help in a wide range of conditions – from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience and regular treatments help to prevent the build up of stress in our daily lives and help us to be in the flow of the Tao by opening the flow of our own qi (energy).Balance and open flow of qi helps our bodies to restore energy levels, reduce anxiety and stress, improves immune system and improves sleep.
  • 4 yin yoga group classes – Yin yoga is a slow paced practice, with postures that are held for 3 -5 minutes in mostly seated or laying down positions, allowing the body to slowly release tension and penetrate the deeper connective tissues (tendons, fascia, and ligaments) as well as the energetic systems of the body, bringing the body into balance and increasing it’s natural range of motion. Yin yoga improves flexibility, circulation in the joints, the flow of qi; the subtle energy that runs through the meridian pathways of the body, which in turn helps improve organ health, immunity and emotional well-being. With this practice you will feel refreshed, renewed and restored.
    During these classes you will also learn about the different elements and their paired meridian systems as part of your journey to self empowered wellness.
    Classes will be Wednesday evenings 7:30-9 pm at Spiritwind in Kensington Market march 2nd, 9th,16th,23rd (make up class if one missed will be on 30th)
  • 4 yang yoga group classes – Yang yoga is more actively paced and in this class we will be practicing an ashtanga based vinyasa flow, using a series of postures to align movement with breath. The yang style removes stagnant qi, strengthens and increases stamina. Sundays 3-4:30 ( Feb 28th, march 6, march 13th,march 27th) ** dates to be finalized (if weekdays work better for you please contact me to discuss alternate time options.)
  • 1 – 40 minute private consultations at the beginning of the month – during your private session we will establish what you are looking to find in your path to wellness and how I can best support you in that journey, each person is an individual with there own personal intentions and we will uncover those.
  • 1 -40 minute private consultation at the end of the month – refine and map your journey and next steps
  • 1 group workshop (something new each month)  – establishing a meditation practice along with a yoga nidra session and group / personal work on establishing a positive affirmation for your yoga nidra practice.
  •  special bonus with this workshop. 1 recorded yoga nidra for your continued use at home.
  • Access to a private group facebook page where you can be part of a community and share your experience in the journey of your own transformation, your challenges and your celebrations.
