Yoga: Soma, Fascia, Alignment

3-week series | June 2-to-18

Online via Zoom

 

Description

3 week yoga & somatic movement series (cours bilingues EN/FR)
Moderate level: Tuesday 17h-18h30
Advanced level: Wednesday 10h30-12h
Moderate level: Thursday 17h-18h30

 

In this 3 week yoga series we explore our bodies in new ways. You’ll learn how to feel the origins of how you move, dissolve tension and align in new ways to help facilitate the development of healthy movement patterns.

Each class will include:

1) Somatic movement – movement designed to calm the nervous system, disengage overactive and unnecessary survival mechanisms, and awaken new neural pathways.

2) Fascial release, stretch and strengthening through movement and asana – Fascia is the connective tissue of the body that forms the cells, muscles and organs and holds our posture (among other things). When the tissues adhere to one another (from physical injury, unhealthy postures, repetitive movements, or psycho-emotional trauma), tension arises and limits our movement, our strength, flexibility and the way we feel. This work will facilitate the release of tension and emotional trauma from the tissues and establish harmony between body and mind.

3) Postural alignment – Anusara yoga’s Universal Principles of Alignment will be taught in the yoga postures to help establish the proper balance of strength and flexibility and functional support for the body. This will keep the body safe during practice and help the body to adopt new ways of holding itself to minimize the risk of future injury and discomfort as we move through life.

Each class will end in meditation or integration period.

Yoga Nidra (in French)

Date TBD | 8:00-9:00pm

Online via Zoom

Description

YOGA NIDRA is a restful and restorative guided relaxation practice. The whole practice is done lying down. But don’t fall asleep! You won’t want to miss the opportunity of seeing the deeper side of yourself 🙂 The practice consists of a self body scan, breath awareness and visualization practices. Deeply restorative and nourishing, 1 hour of quality Yoga Nidra has been shown to be equivalent to 4 hours of deep sleep. 

RESTORATIVE YOGA postures are more restful and require minimum to no effort to maintain. Each pose is held for a few minutes so that the mind and body can completely rest. This practice is extra gentle and poses are adapted for each person and supported by props (blankets, blocks, chairs, etc…). Emphasis is on relaxation and breathing rather than deep stretching.  

Open to all!

Cost: By donation (suggested: $10-25/class)
Space is limited RSVP!
