Restorative Yoga, Relaxation Is Its Own State

Written by
You cannot separate the body, mind and soul, it’s a dance.  The way we do asana, is the way we do life.  It can be ½ way, resenting it, loving it, using it as an escape, and so on.  Your practice is neutral, but it’s a mirror of who you are. Restorative Yoga uses props, your body is a prop for the soul.  Whatever container you bring to the mat can be filled, everything is there depending on your own experience.  Who are you bringing to the mat today, what do you need, and what will you give?  Where are…

What is Mindfulness? MIND FULL or Mindful

Written by
‘Mindfulness’ is a term you may be hearing a lot lately as it is being brought into the light, in response to our stressful lifestyles, and increased alienation from other people, due largely to the use of technology, cell phones, texting, video games to name a few. Mindfulness is paying attention to the here and now with acceptance and non-judgement, (kindness and curiosity). Mindfulness Meditation has been a part of Hatha Yoga Practices for 1000’s of years, so it’s not new, but thankfully is being rediscovered. It’s for all of us, children, teens and adults.

Therapeutic Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Written by
Reality is that life is not peaceful. Trauma can arise from any number of daily things, seemingly small to one person, yet overwhelming to another. Having experienced trauma, whether recently or in the past, one can feel like something is broken within us, wrong with us, or we feel damaged.

It’s about learning how to find healing and support within, by empowering yourself to feel safe in your own…

Therapeutic Yoga For Chronic Pain Care

Written by
What is chronic pain? This term is tossed around so freely nowadays. I don’t think there is one person who isn’t themselves affected or knows someone who uses this term regularly in describing themselves or a situation. According to Neil Pearson, who teaches at UBC, lectures worldwide, and has been working exclusively with patients who suffer from chronic pain for over 20 years, “Scientists explain aspects of chronic pain through explanations of neuro-immune plasticity.

Mindfulness Meditation Workshop

Written by
“The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.” - Rumi Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation If you’ve tried a meditation practice you probably know how challenging it is to quiet our minds. You may have even experienced the incessant chatter that is the background to our everyday lives. Most people exist in this constant state and find it difficult to shift out of it, into the “rest and digest” parasympathetic mode. Essential to our health and well being is the ability to find periods of quiet, stillness and calm. Creating quiet space balanced with activity is important to…
