Cathy’s regular Tuesday 7-8:30 p.m. and Thursday 10:30 a.m.-noon. classes are ongoing;
Monday yoga classes 6:15-7:30 p.m. resume on September 28th and will continue for ten weeks into December (no class on Thanksgiving Monday). Join us in our yoga practice at the welcoming Sail Loft Studio, surrounded by spectacular views of the ocean and sky. All levels and abilities are welcome to participate in the classes. If you are new to yoga, have issues that restrict your movements, or injuries that you are dealing with, feel free to call or write Cathy to talk about whether you would feel comfortable joining a class. [“Ashtanga” means “eight limbs”: all Cathy’s classes explore yoga practice using this “eight-limbed” approach. Using focus and intention, we learn how to be skillful and at ease in the poses, and more mindful in our movements, grounding, and breathing.] Drop–ins are welcome ($10) or purchase eight sessions for $75. You may also pay by donation, if payment is an obstacle to attendance.
Yoga for Everyone at the Fox Point Community Centre, Tuesdays, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Next 8 week session begins on September 29th. Pay what you can ($2-$5). Drop ins are welcome. Cathy teaches yoga poses with chair support, so everyone can participate. No experience is necessary. Bring a mat if you have one. Call or write Christina at the Fox Point Community Centre (Christina@hhellps.com) or Cathy if you have questions.
Yoga and Sound –a Workshop: Sunday, October 18th, 2:30-4:30 p.m. After preparing our bodies for responsiveness to resonance by using yoga poses for building and circulating energy and clearing our minds of excess clutter through meditation, we will practice some techniques of Nada (Sound) Yoga. The following quote from renowned teacher, Ramanand Patel’s website expresses some of the benefits of Yoga and Sound: “The sound catches the listener and increases the ability to move through resistance by transporting the past deep-seated blockages. Supported by the sound the body/mind/senses are carried past the resistances such as weakness, tiredness, pain, stiffness, emotional binding, tightness in the breath or tension in the eyes throat or brain. The sensation is one of gliding, the sounds tenderly scooping a person up like a ski lift gliding forward and gently resting down.” It is not necessary to have yoga experience or a good singing voice to benefit from Sound Yoga. Please join us! Cost is $20 for the session.
