Just for You: Honouring the Self, A Health4Life Self-Care Workshop

with Lisa Hamilton

Date and Time: Sunday April 29, 10am – 3pm (with lunch break)

Price: 45 + HST

You care about the world. A lot. Often putting yourself on the back burner and getting lost in the flow of helping others and putting everyone’s needs above your own wellbeing.  Am I right? Self-Care is a practice that creates resiliency, healing and opens you up to saying YES to life.

The world needs beautiful beings like you now more than ever. But not the exhausted, frustrated, caffeine and carb-loaded you. But the true you, the balanced you that is energetic, effective, powerful, clear-sighted and inspired.

We live in a challenging times with increasing demands on our time and energies that often comes from all directions. We meet everyone’s needs first and IF there is anything left over we may give to ourselves. But really how often does that happen? I’d like to challenge this paradigm because I know firsthand that it just doesn’t work. You simply can’t pour from an empty cup. Diagnosed with 5 recognized disabilities it’s been through learning the practice of transformative Self-Care that has led to my remissions. It’s what has allowed me to bring depth to my work and a deeper level of service to the world.

Join me for a transformational afternoon made ‘Just for You; Honouring the Self’.

Workshop Details:
– Guided meditation and relaxation
-Presentation examining why Self-Care what it is and what it’s not.
– The ancient Ayurvedic art of Dinacharya – The Daily Action
– My Personal Self-Care Routine, the cornerstone to my healing journey
– Group Discussions, sharing’s and reflections
– Design Your Personal Self-Care practice
– Emergency protocols for overwhelm, anxiety and exhaustion.

Tensegrity Repair Series

with Kristina Domsic

Date and Time: Sunday June 3, 1 – 3:30pm

Price: $35 + HST

The word ‘tensegrity’ is a short form for ‘tensional integrity’. In a tensegrity structure, there is balance between push and pull. When our bones, muscles, and fascia are in an ideal state of tensegrity, our bodies move smoothly and easefully. But poor posture, injuries, stress, and repetitive movement patterns can cause major imbalances to our internal tensegrity structures. These imbalances can become apparent through tight muscles and stiff joints, causing unnecessary wear and tear on our bodies, and possibly even leading to long-term issues such as osteoarthritis or degenerative disc disease. The Tensegrity Repair Series (TRS) is made up of slow and accessible movements that are designed to help restore body awareness, increase healthy range of motion in the hips, shoulders, and spine, and strengthen and stabilize the core and pelvis.

This workshop will provide an overview of some of the key concepts behind seeing our bodies as tensegrity structures. We will explore the basic TRS movements together on our mats, in combination with some complimentary gentle yoga postures. Come prepared to explore, relax, and breathe deeply!

In addition to her Hatha and Restorative Yoga offerings, Kristina has been practicing and studying TRS since 2014. She completed a TRS teaching program with Trudy Austin at Queen Street Yoga in 2017.
