Yoga Nidra

with Taryn Diamond — June 3rd

YogaNidra

The shift in seasons marks a time to shed our layers and welcome the energy of longer days in the sun. Just like many mammals come out of their winter hibernation, we too can wake up from the dormancy of the darker months. We wake up from our sleep, or ‘nidra.’ Join Taryn in a special yoga nidra session devoted to peeling off our winter sheaths. Welcome spring with an intentional moment of rest and meditation and come out the other end renewed, restored and refreshed!

Yoga and Your Pelvic Floor

with Michelle Fraser — June 9th

Pelvic Health

In this dynamic workshop, we will build the foundation for integrating your pelvic floor muscles into your yoga practice, from the point of view of a pelvic health physiotherapist. Through discussion and embodied movement, you will become acquainted with your pelvic floor muscles and how these muscles are synergistic with the rest of your inner core. You will gain the knowledge and skills to find a healthy balance of these muscles during your daily activities. You will learn how your pelvic floor can help to guide you towards a safe and pain-free yoga practice. Special consideration will be given to how trauma, the pelvic floor, and movement are interrelated.

Although this workshop includes embodied movement, this will be gentle; participants of all abilities are invited to join in!
