Workshops

  • Ceremony – November 23rd

    Sam is expanding and bringing in her passion and knowledge of ceremony to our studio now on a regular basis. The ceremony is revered in every culture, religion, and country; and often overlooked here in Canada. Ancient traditions and truths are held in these different ceremonies and we will offer you a variety of ways to practice ceremony, a variety of intentions or themes, a variety of guest teachers to join us over the next several months. This is an ongoing special class being held a couple of times a month on Saturday nights from 6:30-8:00 pm.
    Each Ceremony Session will be a combination of asana, meditation, pranayama, soul work, and learning. We will cover a vast array of “modalities” such as crystals, chakras, reiki, aromatherapy, tarot, fire puja, Kirtan chanting, and connection. Sam will have a special gift each week that you can take home and add to your altar, talisman, pocket or bag of tricks! You don’t need to commit to a certain number, you may drop in for $25 whenever you feel. Keep a lookout for our posters we will announce our themes and intentions a few weeks prior, so pick your favorite or try them all. I look forward to sharing the time, space and powerful practice with you.

    About This Ceremony:

    Tea ceremony, tarot, meditations, holding space and talking about why November is a powerful month for proactive change.

  • Mysore- November 24th

    Take your practice to the next level & start practicing Mysore Style with us at the studio and at home. Mysore has nothing to do with being sore …. it is the place, the origin in India of a special style of yoga: The goal is to practice at your own individual pace and level, knowing your asanas and being able to focus more on your breath and exploring the connection of drishti, breath & bandha. In the beginning, we will look into

    the practiced asanas in theory and you will receive your own set of poses based on the Ashtanga primary series. If you are already practicing second or advanced series please let us know and you will also be able to join at your level of practicing Ashtanga yoga. It is not a led class but an individual guided and assisted practice to go into a deeper understanding of your body & mind. After this workshop, you will feel ready and comfortable to step into your regular Ashtanga or flow yoga practice and start practicing at home or at studios that offer Mysore style classes. If you already have taken our Ashtanga 101 workshop it will be a great benefit for this course.

  • Yoga Nidra – November 30th

    This nourishing practice requires nothing but an open mind. The practice of Nidra is often called Yoga Sleep. Doesn’t that sound relaxing ? The instructor will systematically begin to guide you through a practice designed to take you from your “thinking” brain into your “being” brain. You will spend the time with some gentle movements and then deep rest and total relaxation. This special yoga is proven to help in soothing the subconscious mind from harmful patterns, addictions, and behaviors you would like to relinquish. A gift to your nervous system and the ultimate in relaxation.

  • Prenatal Workshop – December 1st

    Partnered Yoga getting ready for baby: Connecting birth partners through pregnancy, labor & delivery

    This workshop will help strengthen the bond between birth partners and the baby to be. Partners will learn different ways to assist loved ones with hands-on comfort measures ideal for labor and delivery. We will explore elements of prenatal partner yoga, prenatal partner Thai massage, and breathing techniques to deepen relaxation and connection throughout pregnancy and the birthing process.  Come and join other soon-to-be-moms and their partners and reap all the benefits that Prenatal yoga has to offer.

    It is preferred that the mom to be is further along in her pregnancy for this workshop (late second trimester to due date) so that the tools you gain in this workshop stay fresh in your mind and can be recalled easily when the time comes!
    Together we can help to eliminate the fear that surrounds the birthing process, replacing it with calm confidence – surrendering with love & trust, that this process will unfold exactly as it’s intended to.

    Reminder** Shantelle would like the participants to bring a birth ball (exercise ball) with them to this workshop. 1 per couple is perfect.

  • Yin and Massage -December 8th


    Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer. With that in mind, we now add massage. A massage specially developed to enhance the Yin posture, where you can really relax and connect with your body, mind, and breath. With the combination of the stretch, massage, soft music, and low lights you can expect to have a very relaxing and restorative class. This class is suitable for all levels of practice and is a wonderful complement to any lifestyle.
