• Winter Solstice Restorative Magic and Yoga Nidra

    Date and Time: Monday December 20, 7 – 8:15m

    Price: $45+ HST

    In the northern hemisphere, the Winter Solstice marks the longest night/ hours of darkness, as one of the earth’s poles has its maximum tilt away from the sun. For millenia, cultures around the world have brought ceremony to this time, in honouring the darkness, the powerful transition between seasons, and the rebirth of the sun. There is much to honour and embrace in the healing darkness of the night, the power of regeneration, deep rest and the magic of the dreamworld. From the darkness, we emerge into the light of a new day, a new season, with the promise of rebirth after this time of winters rest and gestation. This class offers an opportunity to bring ritual to this time, bringing Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra together to deeply restore your being. Restorative Yoga offers gentle, relaxation based yoga poses using plenty of props for support and ease, supporting the release of tension, balancing of the nervous system, and deepening meditative stillness. Then, we journey into a Yoga Nidra, ‘transformational yogic sleep’ practice. Yoga Nidra is an ancient form of regenerative healing, through which you are guided into a state of deep rest. Yoga Nidra is an effortless meditation, all you have to do is relax in a very supported and comfortable position, listening to the voice of the guide, and be carried on a inward journey into the deepest states of healing and transformation. Yoga Nidra is known for its therapeutic benefits, in supporting the nervous system, enhancing sleep, and accessing inner wisdom through the subconscious and unconscious layers of the self. Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra are the perfect practices to honour the deep rest of the Winter Solstice and to recharge and restore during this busy time of year! *Covid protocols are in place, including masks in the studio (can be removed during practice), enhanced cleaning, limited numbers for distancing, and vaccination records can be emailed or brought to class. Thank you for your understanding!

  • In the Heart of Practice

    I have been guiding the ‘Heart of Practice’ Retreat now, for many years. Retreats are so special, as they offer a time outside of time… a time outside of your day to day rhythm where you can slow down and tune into your self in a deeper way. This coming  Oct 15 – 17 2021 Heart of Practice Retreat is the 3rd retreat guided together with my dear friend and teacher, Fraser Rishi Mcdonald. Guiding alongside Fraser is a dream come true, he is truly a beautiful being who lives so fully in his heart, guiding his community comes so naturally and purely. Fraser brings inspired kirtan, his musical gifts of song, poetry and spoken word, guided meditation, Thai Chi and Yoga, and his heart felt wisdom that he shares so freely. Together, we hold a space that is infused with heart centered self inquiry, community connection, and time and space to deepen practice and reset your inner rhythm. Be are blessed to be joined by Fraser’s partner Dana who will also be offering music!

    This year it feels more important than ever, to retreat. With all the challenges and life changes that we have endured over the last year and a half, for many it is time to connect again, time to step back and take stock of what has shifted, integrated and transformed. To come home to the heart of practice.

    We hope you can join us! See more info and register here!
