Inside Out: Connecting with & Communicating From the Core of Our Experience
with Fraser Mcdonald and Kay’la Fraser
Dates and Times: Thursdays, 7 – 8:30pm, Nov. 2 – Nov. 30
Price: $60 + hst
This 5 week series is inspired by a popular workshop from the spring. We will combine yoga and meditation with expressive arts, and invite participants to dive into and through layers of experience to connect with their authentic Self/selves. Asana, spontaneous, rhythmic movement and dance, breath work and meditation will be incorporated so that we can delve into our personal and shared experiences: reflecting on our contributions and connections with the world. This group exploration will be held in a loving and safe space so we can spend time with ourselves in an engaging and focused manner, creating expressions that help us integrate our discoveries into the flow of everyday life.
Each week we will move through a different theme, offering prompts and opportunities to journal, write, and express.
WEEK 1: Connecting Asana’s with the earth energy, to ground us in that which brings a feeling of being supported and at home wherever life takes us.
WEEK 2: Using spontaneous movement and dance to explore expressions of freedom and flow.
WEEK 3: Discovering the power of the fire element to burn through obstacles and create space to open to love.
WEEK 4: Here we explore the air element – finding softness and openness through breath and restorative postures.
WEEK 5: Finally we will move into ether, the subtle element of space where we can discover the marvels of meditation.
SHARING OUR INSPIRATIONS
In week 6, on December 7th, participants will have an opportunity to share their expressions in a community coffee house show alongside established artists. There is no expectation to participate. You are welcome to simply enjoy the space, reflect, and use your expressions as a gateway into a more full and true life experience and expression. But for those who would like to share with the larger community, after week 5 class from 8:30-9:00 p.m. there will be an optional performance workshop for those interested in performing at the coffee house the following week. Please note we are available for one-on-one coaching as well.
GOOD VIBES ARE ESSENTIAL
It is important that we offer an inclusive and supportive atmosphere. Through attentive and unbiased listening, we can be inspired by each others’ deepest reflections. While all are welcome, we ask that everyone bring a respectful and open attitude so that every community member feels comfortable expressing themselves authentically.
In addition to being yoga teachers and award winning writers and performers, both Kay’la and Fraser have used the arts, yoga and meditation to facilitate healing and self-discovery with a wide range of collaborators; providing workshops in schools, at yoga and healing centres, and in retreat environments. They are excited to share their experience and passion with the community, and look forward to taking this journey with each of you.
