  • Thai Yoga Massage & Meditation – February 23rd

     

    Thai Massage can be traced back over 2500 years to India and spread with Buddhism to other parts of Asia. It is a synthesis of yoga, Ayurveda, and massage. Done on the floor in comfortable clothing, it incorporates assisted stretching similar to Hatha yoga and working acupressure points. It is stimulating both physically and energetically, giving benefits to both recipient and practitioner alike!

    It can be an excellent tool for yoga teachers looking to become more comfortable giving assists, for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge and practice of yoga or massage, or for couples and friends just looking to have some fun and try something new!

    This workshop will provide an overview of Thai yoga massage, with a guided stretch routine/massage of one hour, and some basic understanding of acupuncture(pressure) points on the arms and legs. Be prepared to get close, get a little exercise and a few laughs.

    Marie did her Thai massage training in Chaing Mai, Thailand in 2004 and has been incorporating it into her massage practice in Edmonton ever since.

  • Mysore – March 17th

     

    Take your practise to the next level & start practising 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. At 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.

  • Conscious Couples – March 31st

    Conscious Couples: Connecting birth partners through pregnancy, labour & delivery.

Partners will learn different ways to assist loved ones with hands on comfort measures ideal for labour and delivery. We will explore elements of prenatal partner yoga, prenatal partner Thai massage, reiki, and breathing techniques to deepen relaxation and connection throughout pregnancy and the birthing process.

    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 a calm confidence – surrendering with love & trust, that this process will unfold exactly as it’s intended to.
