4 class series: $80+GST
Walk-ins (if space permits) $24 + GST
A JOURNEY OF YOURSELF, THROUGH YOUR SELF, TO YOURSELF
The purpose of this series class is to explore and highlight the individual needs of the practitioner, through many aspects of asana. We will explore the alignment of postures in their generic and functional form, with a focus on what is happening specifically in an individual body. Students will create balance & well-being and learn how to use this inside the class or at home. We will uncover the reasons for doing certain postures and explore how to intuitively move in and out of them. We will learn how these movements have the potential to create both healing or injury. We will learn movement and alignment techniques to build awareness of how we are functioning in the postures as well as what needs to be adapted or avoided completely. This 4 class series will go through diverse practices to allow students to understand how to build a personalized practice that is effective for them.
Some experience is required, however this series is for newer practitioner to teachers! It is for anyone who wishes to understand their practice better and who wants to investigate the purpose behind different ways of practicing.

Our kids classes are everything parents could hope for in an extra-curricular activity: a fantastic creative outlet for imaginative minds, non-competitive physical fitness, and developing great social skills with other children.
Our Kids Yoga classes will teach children important skills and lessons that they will carry with them through the rest of their lives. We focus on physical fitness and building strength in developing bodies, social skills by encouraging group and partner work, and also manage to calm things down with short guided meditations that teach your child relaxation techniques.
Children between the ages of 5 and 12 lead busy and exciting lives… it is not only important to make sure that they are getting lots of physical activity and learning new things, but also to help them develop positive coping mechanisms that they are able to apply to situations in their daily lives.
These classes are un-parented (for children only), however parents are welcome to stay in the comfortable seating of our reception area and enjoy some tea, reading, or simply leave and enjoy the hour to themselves!

A CLASS FOR PARENTS & BABIES - TODDLERS
Our wonderful pre & post-natal yoga teacher Sara Glessing, supports your continued journey into parent-hood! Baby & Me classes are a great opportunity for both parent and child to socialize, and build a healthy sense of self-care without planning or paying for child-care. During early childhood it can be very difficult for parents to prioritize themselves, and this give you an opportunity to show yourself, and your baby, that you're important too.
Our Baby & Me classes are unique in that they are open to parents with babies and young children (up to toddlers) alike. Younger children will learn to follow along with parts of the class, while you open up, release tension, build strength, restore your energy, and engage and bond with your babe. We welcome all regular parent-baby activities within the class: random feedings, changing, crawling, chatter, and sometimes crying are all part of the program.
