"New Moon, New Mindset" - A Kundalini Yoga Experience

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 17, 2020

Saturday, October 17 from 10:30-12 with Megan Campbell - $25 plus HST

Everything has changed, and we didn't get a say in the matter. Sometimes so much change too quickly results in difficulty discerning the Inner voice from the External narrative, and we question ourselves, our decisions, and ultimately our futures. 

Join Megan for this experiential workshop using the modality of Kundalini Yoga. Together we will harness the energy of this New Moon to learn about the various facets of our mind, and revitalize our bodies from stress. This journey in learning and understanding includes asana, pranayama, meditation, and deep relaxation. 

A bolster/block/pillow is required. All bodies and levels of practice welcome.

"Breathe On" - A Guided Breathing Workshop for Radiant Health

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 24, 2020

Saturday, October 24 from 11-1 with Jolene D'Entremont - $75 plus HST

How you breathe is how you live your life.  The breath is fundamental to our physical lives, but we often ignore its importance in our emotional and mental well being. We practice moving our bodies, but very rarely do we prioritize consciously moving our breath. This workshop will explore the potential of what is possible, both mentally and physically, when we are coached to rythmically move our breath. Through carefully curated music, skillful breath cueing and coaching, Jolene will safely guide you through 2 transformational hours. This type of breathwork can sometimes bring about intense emotions and is not recommended for people who are prone to panic attacks, have a history of psychosis, or are dealing with uncontrolled blood pressure, glaucoma or cardiovascular disease.
