Beautiful Nourishment: Ayurveda and Aromatherapy Mini Retreat

Late Winter/ Early Spring Kapha Balancing

with Tiina Kivinen and Angella Windrem

Date and Time: Saturday, March 30, 10 am – 4pm 

Price: $90 + HST (includes lunch) 

Join Tiina and Angella for a one day mini retreat to bring balance and nourishment to your body, mind and spirit. This retreat is part of our Ayurveda and Aromatherapy seasonal series.

According to Ayurveda, the sister science to Yoga, the Spring season is governed by Kapha, the constitution of Earth and Water. During Kapha season, we benefit from finding inspiration and motivation to practice, using the lighter qualities of fire and air to help balance the heaviness of Kapha.  At this time of year, as we come out of hibernation and start to see signs of Spring, we cultivate balance by adding warmth and vigour to our systems, to awaken in mind, body and spirit. When Kapha is out of balance, (and this can be for anyone, of any constitution, during Kapha season!), we may feel unmotivated, sluggish, and heavy. This mini retreat will draw upon the invigorating and warming qualities of fire and air, through Yoga practice, breathwork and meditation, aromatherapy, food, and self care practices. The day will energize and inspire, bringing forth your own inner life energy.

The day will unfold like this….

10am: Kapha Balancing Yoga Sadhana: Nourishing the body and mind with a gentle/ moderate yoga practice that brings warmth, lightness, and invigorating energy. All levels. Enhanced with Aromatherapy/ plant medicine.

12pm: Nourishing Lunch: We provide a lovely light lunch that is Kapha balancing and vegan.

12:30pm: We will spend the afternoon making beautiful self care packages, made especially for balancing Kapha. We will use quality essential oils and ingredients to craft invigorating and inspiring aromatherapy Abhyanga oil (self massage oil), bath salts, and a herbal tea blend.

2:30pm: Aromatherapy Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra

We will end by 4pm, after a closing circle.

*All are welcome to register, although be aware that we will be using essential oils throughout the day, so this is not recommended for anyone with sensitivity or allergy to essential oils. 

*Tiina and Angella are both experienced Yoga Teachers, and Tiina has completed Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher Training, while Angella is completing Aromatherapy certification.

New Moon Yoga Nidra

with Tiina Kivinen 

Date and Time: Friday May 3, 7 – 8:15pm, and Sunday June 2, 4 – 5:15pm 

Price: $25 + HST 

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. Yoga Nidra has the potential to balance the over stimulation and pressure to perform and succeed in our fast paced culture, while supporting stress relief and over all health and well – being.

The New Moon is a perfect time for Yoga Nidra. As the moon wanes and the light disappears, there is a natural draw towards stillness in our beings; the healing darkness. Just as we need rest in each daily cycle, when the sun sets, we also benefit from allowing our selves to rest and take refuge during the waning and new moon in the monthly cycle, in order to reset the nervous system and prepare for a new beginning. Yoga Nidra during the New Moon answers the deep inner call of taking rest and refuge, as well as creates space for intention to emerge as we begin again.

Tiina has completed a Yoga Nidra Teacher Training, and is a certified Hypnotherapist, both practices that explore the power and potential of therapeutic trance states and relaxation for the health of your whole being.
