March livestream yoga session – starts Mar 6

Life can sometimes feel like a whirlwind, with us spinning like dervishes – perhaps sometimes due to ecstasy, but oftentimes due to chaotic unfocus and unrelenting craving.

The antidote? To actively practise non-action. We choose to sit down in the centre of the tornado, grounding ourselves in curious observation and gentle compassion. We disrupt the patterns of doing, fixing, arranging and controlling and see what opens up for us.

This is not apathy, nor is it rest (though there will be savasana). Tolerating discomfort takes sustained effort and discipline. With practice, we get stronger in our non-doing. And in that journey, the best starting point is exactly where we are right now.

THE ACTION OF NON-ACTION: YIN & YANG YOGA

A new livestream session – BREATHWORK 101 starts Wed Feb 15!

It is easy to take the breath for granted: it happens automatically, plus we are quite busy tackling other challenges in life, thank you very much. At the same time, it is a powerful tool – if we so choose to explore its benefits. By learning how to properly breathe, we can gain an accessible method to modulate our stress levels, manage pain and discomfort, boost recovery and our ability to rest, and even improve our posture.

Each week’s class will build on the last. We will:

  • Cover the basics of human anatomy pertaining to breath i.e. get acquainted with our “equipment”
  • Learn different breathwork practices that are simple and effective
  • Talk about how to set up a home practice so that you can continue your journey
  • Definitely cultivate a deeper respect and appreciation of the human body’s beautiful intelligence.

All you’ll need for this practice is a yoga mat, a blanket, and a chair. If you happen to have a meditation cushion or yoga block, please have those handy as well. While most of practice will be done seated or lying down, there will also be some occasional gentle movement.

February livestream yoga session – starts Feb 6

While the darkest days of winter are behind us, true spring is still beyond the bend. As the ground sleeps, we continue to steep ourselves in the restful energy of the season. Staying steady on the path, we quietly cultivate our patience and resilience. We step the left foot, we step the right foot. We keep going.

January livestream yoga session – starts Jan 9

It is the beginning of another year, and while the Gregorian calendar can sometimes feel arbitrary, it can be useful to have a reason to start again.

As we take the opportunity to reset, how do we want to go about it? How can the ground we stand on be a source of stability, and thus sanctuary? Practice gives us a chance to learn how to engage in each moment with a sense of curiosity, of not-knowing. Can we shed the stories of the past, and be available to what arises?

There is potency in slowing down and planting one’s feet into the yoga mat / earth; through this, may we learn to create safety in our inner landscapes.

THIS GROUND, THIS SANCTUARY: YIN & YANG YOGA
Mondays 5:30-6:30 pm CT
Jan 9, 16, 23 & 30
