Meditation

Level: All levels
Room temperature*

Description: In the last century science has proven the brain is elastic and therefore able to be trained and molded. This idea however is far from being a revelation. Buddhist monks and serious yoga practitioners did not require science to prove what they have been practicing and benefiting from for thousands of years. The enormously powerful skill of meditation was not cultivated to be under utilized in the simple management of stress and relaxation. It was practiced and perfected to gain deep insight into the workings of mind and into the nature of perception and reality. In order to understand how to establish an effective practice we will spend a small amount of time on the methodology. However, the majority of time will be spent in practice as it is here where meditation has the power to transform our lives.

Sheri Rink Dip. PT, ACup, RYT

My bio is a long list of “Thank You’s”. I know I am only here because of those around me and the depth of gratitude runs deep. For those that do not already know, I graduated Physiotherapy from the Krankengymnastik Schuele, Suelfeld, Germany in 1995. I worked in the hospital environment in Germany before returning to Canada in 1997. After establishing my license with the College of Physical Therapist of Alberta, I went to work in a number of different fields of physiotherapy within Alberta. I have learned much from this career and I have learned equally from my clients and the textbooks. I look forward to assisting you with your health concerns.

Shantelle Durocher

shantelleI have played many different roles in life, everything from the cubicle to the construction site and nothing seemed to stick. I had to make a change, of this I was certain; so I packed up everything and left with only my backpack and an open heart to explore this world. What I soon started to discover beyond the beauty and excitement of each new place, was a passion I never fully realized before! By simply removing myself from the routines of my old life and fully experiencing the unknown, all that was unimportant slowly faded away…leaving behind a simple inner knowing of the ability we all posses to heal ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually. This realization lead me down the path of alternative health and wellness. Feeling the call to learn more, I began working in the industry. Learning more about supplements and herbs, becoming certified in reiki as well as recently completing a 200 hour yoga teacher training in Nicaragua! I feel an overwhelming amount of gratitude that words can not fully express to all that has unfolded in my life, and to all that will continue to unfold.

Rebecca Considine

RebeccaI began my yoga practice on a summer day in 2013 when a friend simply asked if I wanted to come and from that moment I was hooked.  I loved the feeling like I was getting stronger and more flexible and that I could find a time in the day for 60 minutes where all I was focused on was the mat. Although it began as just a physical practice after a while I noticed that going to yoga would always put me in a better head space through the rest of the day. Yoga to me is such a mental help, it makes me feel empowered and relaxed. I was so inspired by those who were teaching me yoga and helping me to get deeper in my practice. As I continued to practice a teacher asked if I ever thought of teacher training and so from there I decided this is the way to deepen my practice. I wanted to inspire people with yoga like I was inspired, and provide people with 60 minutes where they can just focus on themselves. I love to teach a flow class with a focus on breath and makes students feel invigorated and listen to their body. I took Empowered Yoga 200 HR teacher training in 2014 under the guidance of Michele Theoret, Bonnie Parkes, and Danielle Murray in Edmonton. I hope to make people who come to my class feel that no matter who they are they have the ability to do yoga. I am still discovering my own practice and still have a long way to go. I am hoping to share as much as I can with you and continue learning. I am grateful for the here and now as I continue to try and stay present in my life. I hope to see you on the mat! Namaste.

Megan Kueber, RYT

Hi there! I’m Megan. My deep interest in personal development led me to yoga and meditation, while my passion for connecting with others and creating community led me to become a teacher. My goal as a teacher is to create a sacred container for practitioners to have a unique experience that nourishes their mind, body and soul.

I completed my 200 Hour yoga teacher training in the jungle of Costa Rica. I am a student of the Akhanda Shakti method – combining the holistic fundamentals of the Akhanda tradition with a little jungle funkiness.  I believe that yoga, meditation and ceremony are medicines for us to heal our hearts and step into our best selves. I look forward to seeing you on your mat!

Margaret Rodgers

Margaret’s journey with the path of yoga started 11 years ago as a way to take good care of herself. Like most western practitioners, it began with the body, but almost immediately, she started to recognize the mind, body, heart connection. Like the way the practice has the capacity to ground one in the present and uplift the spirit – creating a nourishing feeling of content.The practice created profound and deep shifts for Margaret and she noticed how it positively impacted her relationship with the world around her, and how it organically deepened her connections with the people in her life.  Naturally, curiosity took hold and she began to inquire more about yoga and started to delve deeper into its layers by attending workshops and eventually becoming a certified teacher. Margaret has received training in Akhanda Yoga (Prana Yoga Studio’s 200 hr YTT), Restorative Yoga, Lifestyle Meditation (Meditation for Kids and Teens), and Yoga for Teens (Donna Freeman’s Yoga In My School). She looks forward to  sharing the practice in a fun, inclusive environment at That Yoga Place – a studio that has lovingly supported her journey.
