Powerful words from Richard Wagamese. This is from his book Embers. May you find balance in the great clamour of living.

Part of being in community is having an awareness of who & what is around you, and how your actions influence each other. In our old building, sound travels easily. If you are putting props away after your Yoga class, please do so quietly so the Acupuncture patients can continue their naps. And if you are chatting while in line for the washroom, keep in mind people might be resting in shavasana, or napping in the clinic. Thanks for your care with this!⠀

How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being,
Otherwise, we all remain too frightened. ~ Hafiz 🌹

Set the foundation for your 2018 Yoga practice with this 6 week series!⠀
• Yoga Deepening: Exploring asana, pranayama, meditation, philosophy •⠀
Taught by Jonni-Lyn Friel, this class is on Tuesdays at 7:45-9:00pm starting January 23rd.⠀

Have you been practicing yoga for a while and are starting to wonder about the deeper parts of yoga? Why do we chant Om? What is Pranayama (breath control) and why is it so important? How are the ancient philosophical practices of yoga useful  in my everyday life?⠀

This journey into yoga aims to answer these questions and more. In this progressive series, each class will have a unique theme, with the emphasis on developing your own practice. We practice gentle asana (movement) and explore Pranayama to experience why these practices are so important to the health of our mind, body and spirit. ⠀

Throughout the 6 weeks, we will gradually build a pranayama practice that is suitable for all, and that you can continue at home. The practice of Japa (mantra) meditation will be explained and explored, guiding you to create a practice. Yogic philosophy and the spirituality of yoga will be discussed and how we can bring this ancient wisdom into our lives now, helping us to be happier, healthier people off the mat! Beginners are welcome.⠀

Investment: $80-$100 Sliding Scale⠀
