Yoga Class with Chelsey KORUS: Pipe Dream
Sunday 15th of September – 4 pm to 5:30 pm, Mile End

It is good for our souls to yearn for something, to have a pipe dream, a wild idea. This class will focus on your yearning for personal meaning. The kind of yearning that pulls you toward your heart — into your wild nature and deepest desires. A sweat-filled practice with forward folds to allow for deep listening, shoulder and hip openers to release stagnant energy. Heart openers to feel a more expansive sense of self and a guided meditation to finish. Emerge with the clarity that comes from spending 90 minutes in a beautiful dream state where everything is possible

Yoga Detour in Montreal!
October 26 and 27 in Mile End!

Join Cecily Milne of Yoga Detour for the renowned Detour Method Immersion weekend. This training is known for bringing contemporary perspectives in movement research to the world of yoga asana, introducing instructors and serious students to a practice environment that is explorative and non-dogmatic. This opportunity could forever change the way you practice and teach, exposing the bridge between the yoga you already know and the broader world of movement that has so much to offer.

During this deep dive into the Detour method, we’ll explore:

~What it means to have a spine that’s both strong and mobile
~How to build strong glutes and hamstrings without compromising your range of motion
~The work required to keep the wrists and shoulders pain-free in arm balances and inversions
~How to turn the floor into a space for play, research and experimentation

Cecily will demonstrate how to bring this information into a led class setting, creating an informed full-body experience balanced with humour, question-asking and honest dialogue.

Members* : 75$
Regular : 85$

For the week-end immersion (4 workshops)

Your Spine is Your Core
Saturday October 26, 10am to 1pm

In this workshop, you’ll learn what it means to have a spine that is both mobile and strong. This class provides the crucial foundation for everything else in the Yoga Detour™ approach.

In this workshop you can expect:

• To explore the blind spots we all have in our spine using various forms of tactile feedback
• To learn different methods for accessing spinal mobility that can be used in group classes as well as private sessions
• To understand the importance of proximal stability and how to introduce this concept to students at all levels
• To harness the power of neutral alignment without compromising your spine’s ability to move and remain responsive

This workshop will give you the building blocks to create balance in your entire body. When the spine and core move optimally, your entire movement practice will benefit.

Strong Feet – Strong Hamstrings – Strong Glutes: An Integrated Approach to Standing Postures
Saturday October 26, 2pm to 5pm

In this workshop, we will use the Yoga Detour™ method of joint isolation, muscle activation, and integration through progressive loading to build a strong, mobile lower body.

In this workshop you can expect:
• To learn how to bring strength and mobility to your feet and those of your students – even if all they’ve known until now are high heels or orthotics
• To understand the importance of loading your hamstrings through full range of motion to make them strong, without compromising your range of motion
• To learn how to mitigate “yoga-butt” – aka proximal hamstring tendinopathy
• To explore the link between mobile ankles, stable knees and mobile hips when it comes to practicing sustainable standing postures

This is the most population workshop in our series and never fails to bring the heat – literally. Expect to walk out feeling the muscles in your lower body in a whole new way – one that is strong, grounded and stable.

Upper Body Explorations: Arm Balances, Backbends and Inversions
Sunday October 27, 10am to 1pm

In this workshop, we will use the Yoga Detour™ method of joint isolation, muscle activation, and integration through progressive loading to build a strong, mobile upper body.

In this workshop you can expect:
• To learn how to keep wrists pain-free, strong and mobile so they can support you in arm balances
• To train straight-arm strength so that your shoulders and wrists support your elbows, even when they’re locked out/hyperextended
• To explore the basics of scapular stability, creating a strong foundation for overhead weight-bearing
• To understand the link between core stability and the shoulder mobility required in inverted postures like wheel and handstand

This approach to practice will teach you to see arm balances and inversions as expressions of movement, made up of multiple components. When we isolate these components before integrating them into more complex postures, even the most challenging positions will become accessible to all.

Putting It All Together
Sunday October 27, 2pm to 5pm

While the other sessions this weekend provide the pieces of a BIG puzzle, this culminating class puts them together in an accessible, inspiring way.

In this workshop you can expect:
• A led class with Cecily, where she’ll demonstrate what it looks like to put the Yoga Detour™ method into practice
• The opportunity to explore your favourite postures through the lens of “Isolate – Activate – Integrate”
• An in-depth dialogue on sequencing, functional movement and how to navigate the bridge between conventional and contemporary postural yoga

We’ll merge spinal movement and shoulder mobility with lower body strength and explorative approaches to the asana practice. This workshop will leave you excited to bring new material into your practice and teaching. We encourage you to attend at least one of the previous workshops if this one is of interest to you.
