Soul Wisdom Restorative Yoga is an all levels restorative yoga series intended to create space for your inner wisdom to emerge from the depths of your self inquiry practice. Through gentle movement and supported and comfortable stillness, Restorative Yoga promotes the relaxation of the nervous system, bringing you into a state of relaxation and ease that has a lasting effect on your state of being. Exploring meditation techniques, breathwork, and hypnosis/yoga nidra techniques, your body, mind, and spirit have the opportunity to integrate nourishing and positive transformations. Relaxation has powerful effects, yet the process can be effortless and deeply peaceful.

 

 

This season, we will draw upon the luminous teachings of a translation of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra; The Radiance Sutras; 112 Gateways to the Yoga of Wonder and Delight, by Lorin Roche.

Here is a taste for you to savour…

There is a place in the heart where everything meets. Go there if you want to find me. 
Mind, senses, soul, eternity, all are there. 
Are you there? 
Enter the bowl of vastness that is the heart. 
Give yourself to it with total abandon . . . 
Once you know the way 
the nature of attention will call you 
to return, again and again, 
and be saturated with knowing, 
‘I belong here, I am at home here.”

The practices of Pranayama (breathwork) and Meditation enhance our ability to be present, to calm the nervous system, sleep better, breathe more fully, and ultimately have the potential to optimize our health on all levels (nervous system, immune boosting, calming anxiety/ stress, mental clarity and physical health). This series of open to all (as long as you can climb stairs to get to the studio). Gentle movements will be guided to help prepare the body for deeper meditation and breathing practices, and restorative style postures will assist in the deepening.

Yoga Interweaved with Thai Yoga Massage

Tiina Kivinen

  • August 26, 2018
    1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

with Ireni Stamou

This is a wonderful session for those wanting hands on assists in a yoga practice. By receiving Thai Yoga hands on assistance you will gain a deeper somatic awareness and knowledge of your anatomy and explore how you can experientially align in your movement. Within a gentle Hatha yoga session you will receive Thai Yoga massage throughout the poses. Thai yoga massage is one of the worlds foundations of massage. The practitioner will gently stretch, twist and offer bodyweight, apply pressure with her elbows, knees, palms, and thumbs. Participants will also be introduced to energy work, breathwork and meditation which helps to prepare the body, mind and spirit for receiving hands on work.

Ireni has been practicing bodywork for 20 years and in the last decade she made an important passage in her healing work in Costa Rica: a vibrant eco culture and yoga mecca. Most notably in the last 5 years at The Harmony Healing Centre in Nosara.

Ireni is a certified practitioner from the Lotus Palm School in Montreal and she has mentored with Nancy Topf :Dynamic Anatomy in New York.

Exciting new beginnings brought Ireni to root in the Peterborough community with her family, and, where she will be sharing her practice.

“It was a priviledge to work with Ireni Stamou during my stay in Costa Rica. Her classes were amazing and the bodywork she does is truly transformative. She is incredibly perceptive and intuitive and in our first session she completely changed my lower back. I wish she lived in New York so I can see her more often.”

Yoga Nidra

Tiina Kivinen

  • August 31, 2018
    7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

with Tiina Kivinen

Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness. The word ‘Nidra’ refers to sleep with a trace of awareness, or conscious deep relaxation. Yoga Nidra is a therapeutic trance, much like hypnosis. It is as a state of consciousness, that occurs between waking consciousness and dreaming consciousness. To enter into the Nidra state, we utilize a skillful and systemic method of complete relaxation, that has the potential to restore balance through bringing us into the parasympathetic nervous system’s state of rest and digest. As well, it is in this state of deep rest, that we have the potential to affect change on a subconscious, or unconscious level. The practitioner simply rests in a comfortable and very supported position, listening to voice of the guide, and the journey unfolds. We approach the practice with the intention of deepening self inquiry, integrating life changes and insights, and using this method of skillful rest for stress reduction, and self care.

Tiina has completed a Yoga Nidra Teacher Training, and is a certified in Hypnotherapist, both practices that explore the power and potential of therapeutic trance states.
