Breathing Through: Practices for Resilience, Joy, and Compassion

It is with great excitement to invite you to my next workshop on Sunday, October 20th (3:30-5:30 pm) at Yoga Public Downtown! This workshop focuses entirely on breathwork – my favourite aspect of yoga practice.

Breathwork has proven effects in reducing stress, releasing stale emotions, and cultivating resilience and strength (try taking a deep breath in/out right now!). Different breathing techniques can be helpful in different ways; over the two hour workshop we will explore various traditional methods of breath to address the specific needs of a modern life.

Breath is a powerful tool available to anyone at any stage of life, fitness level, creed or background. Join me for a deep dive on understanding and mastering your own breath! Space is limited; sign up at www.yogapublic.com.

Ayurvedic Spring Reset 2019

Join me on Sunday, April 28th (3-5 pm, $55+GST) at Yoga Public, 280 Fort St for this year’s Ayurvedic Spring Reset!

According to Ayurveda, the change of seasons is the natural time to reset ourselves, boost Agni (metabolism), and remove Ama (toxins). Learn about the complementary healing practices of Ayurveda and yoga to engage in a transformative process to restore balance, wellness and clarity.

During the 2-hour workshop, you will:

  • Lay the groundwork for understanding the principles of Ayurveda
  • Deepen your understanding of the body-mind connection
  • Uncover the methodology of a 5-day cleanse to integrate all your new knowledge!

You will gain access to exclusive online content I have created to guide you through your cleanse. This supporting material will present simple daily practices to incorporate into each day of the cleanse, including recipes, guided audio meditations, journaling prompts, and more. The online content will be made available for 31 days after the workshop for you to have the flexibility to conduct your cleanse according to your schedule.

A cleanse is an excellent yearly practice that offers lasting benefits, such as:

  • Improving digestion by learning to deeply listen to your body
  • Trusting in the inherent wisdom of yourself
  • Feeling lighter, brighter, and more clear
  • Realigning with what nourishes and serves you.

If you have participated in a reset/cleanse with me before, please note that its format continues to evolve. I’m continually evolving in my understanding of Ayurveda and incorporating the latest scientific research; this updated program reflects deeper insights.

This practice is excellent for both beginners and seasoned pros; find support and community in embarking on this journey together.

Namaste!

Stoking the fire: how yoga and Ayurveda can heal the digestive system.

***SECOND DATE ADDED: SUNDAY, MARCH 3rd, 3-5 pm.***
Update: March 3rd workshop is full. Thank you! Join the wait list at www.yogapublic.com or send me a message here.

The February 3rd workshop is full. Thank you!

Join me on Sunday, February 3rd (or March 3rd), 2019 (3-5 pm, $50) at Yoga Public (280 Fort St) for an immersive workshop of study and practice: we will be delving into how the practices of yoga and Ayurveda can help us heal our digestive system.

Digestion is a physical, mental, and emotional process. Through the harmonizing practices of Ayurveda and yoga, cultivate a deeper understanding of how Agni, the digestive fire, is the bedrock of a healthy and long life, and its importance at all levels of being.

Discover ways to:

– Eliminate sluggishness, lethargy, and cloudiness
– Support physical, mental, and emotional detoxification
– Improve Agni to increase energy, clarity, and resilience
– Burn off the old to make space for the new

Part-yoga class, part-discussion, come prepared to dig deeper into the ways we can be in partnership with ourselves. Uncover daily rituals that will last a lifetime, and tap and into your internal rhythms and inherent healing power.

Please note that it is best to come with any empty stomach to experience maximum benefit from the healing practices we will do (ie avoid eating for 2-3 hours prior to the workshop).

This workshop is limited to 20 participants. Each participant will receive a ritual kit to take home that will contain tools to aid them in their continued journey of tapping into your body’s innate wisdom.

Winter Solstice Kirtan

Join David and I for an evening of Kirtan, a meditative practice of cultivating mindfulness through sound and breath. We will be doing our last kirtan of 2018 at Yoga Public on Sunday December 16th (6-7:30 pm, $20). The winter solstice is December 21st, so as we approach the darkest day of the year, let us join together and share our inner light.

Kirtan uses mantras to develop awareness and equanimity. Mantras are short repetitive phrases, and while they might seem esoteric at first, we are all already repeating mantras to ourselves – but usually they are negative things like, “I’m not worthy” or “I don’t belong.” We need to hit the reset button, and practice helps with that. Recalibrate yourself with traditional mantras that call in compassion, love, and understanding.

All are welcome and no experience is necessary! Enjoy the opportunity to be transformed through the power of live music, storytelling, and community in an intimate setting. All you need is to come prepared to sit (chairs will be available) and soak it all in.

Pre-register at www.yogapublic.com. See you there!
