We learn poses, breathing techniques, and make new friends. We learn self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-love. Open to children aged 4-8 years old.

Queer and Trans Yoga

with Craig Jeffery — Pop-ups staring November 22nd

QT Yoga

Monthly Pop-up Class Queer and Trans Yoga is here at OG.

Yoga is for everyone. It’s benefits stretch as wide and fertile as it’s rich history is long. Unfortunately – for many reasons that have nothing to do with yoga (and a few that do) – not everyone always feels safe or welcome in modern day yoga studios. We at the Garden love our community and our space and we are fierce in our intent to share what we are so grateful for with everyone in a way that feels safe and welcoming to them, exactly as they are.

It is to this end that we are incredibly excited to announce that beginning November 22, 6:00pm we will be running a monthly all levels queer and trans yoga class.

Remixing a few different rituals or practices—slow, careful movement paired with reflective writing and grounding stillness—you’ll float back into the hum with a recalibrated sense of inner hush.

Parent and Tot Yoga

with Darcie Ladd — Wednesdays at 11:15am starting in November

ParentandTot

A fun yoga class for parents with active little tots (around 12-24 months). Parents can expect this class to have many elements of a traditional yoga class: you will flow, stretch, build strength, self-massage and learn movements to soothe common aches and pains that can also be practiced at home. Various modifications and progressions will be offered to support all pre/postnatal bodies and all levels of practice. Tots will have a blanket setup at the top of their parents mat where they can play independently, or they can move around and play with community toys in the centre of the room, socialize with friends and some may even follow along with the class! Perhaps the best part, meet, chat and laugh with a community of parents with similar aged children in a relaxed and supportive environment.

Goodbye | Hello: A New Year’s Celebration with Bryonie

with Bryonie Wise — Tuesday December 31st, 2019

NYwithBryonie

A year is a beautiful thing to acknowledge, for where we started is often far, far away from where we stand at the close—and it must be said that the end of this year closes a magnificent, challenging, wonder-filled decade.

Our magical evening together remixes a few sacred practices (movement, writing and stillness) and offers space to honour what we’ve learned so far, clearing the pathways to welcome in everything new.

  • Accessible for all beings, at all levels of practice
  • Light snacks (vegan + gluten-free!) will be provided

*Please note that this is a dry event

Bring a pen, journal, anything you’d like to place on our communal altar and an open heart

We may laugh oceans, we may cry rivers and most certainly, we will howl and together, welcome a brand new decade in
