Workshop – Intention and Flow: A Women’s Yoga Workshop with The Moon Deck
Everything we create starts with an intention. Join Aarona, author of The Moon Deck and devoted yoga teacher for this empowering women’s workshop. When women come together we awaken our intuition, inspire our purpose, and support our healing. We will explore the mental, physical and energetic layers of intention – starting with a group oracle reading from The Moon Deck and an aligning yoga and meditation practice. We will close with Word Weaving, a contemplative journaling practice where you will craft your own ‘power mantra’ and anchor this mantra into a new daily ritual. Each portion of this workshop will inspire you to harness the power of intention in your life and on your mat, cultivate a healthier inner dialogue, and a deepen your connection with your intuition.

Please come prepared to move, plus bring a journal and pen.

Intensive week-end – October 20th – 22nd

Alexandria Crow
From Yoga Physics

Spend a weekend learning about the practice of yoga by looking at the inner workings of yogic philosophy, the body, and the mind so that the practice becomes personal, effective and wise. The practice of yoga is an individual journey that is mostly taught in group format these days. In order to work within the current context with wisdom students must look deeply at their body and mind as it relates to each and every class and all with the philosophy of yoga as a practice at the root.

Fri Oct 20th 6:30pm – 8:30pm – Why do we do asana? (intro conference)
What are we trying to learn and/or access in these postures? In this lecture/discussion we will look at the philosophy behind a yoga practice and how to bring that consciousness and understanding to the physical practice. This awareness when layered upon the poses makes for a complete practice that can bring about transformation and growth both in the physical body and one’s approach to how they live.
Sat Oct 21st (am) 7:30am – 10:30am – The Deepest Layers – The nervous system, skeletal range, and basic biomechanics
We will begin by looking at how the nervous system affects the body and it’s range of motion. The class will begin with at least an hour long physical asana practice where students will set a baseline of their personal range of motion and skeletal structure both before and after the transition their nervous system into the parasympathetic system. Class will be followed with a lecture and diagnostic lab where we will look at the basic biomechanics of all the joint regions in the body in relation to the most common shapes performed in class and discuss the general amount of range that can be expected out of each joint region and what to do if there is limitations.
Sat Oct 21st (pm) 12:30pm – 3:30pm – Feet, Legs, Knees, Hips and Spine
The hip and spine perform a biomechanical dance that, when understood, allows a wise approach to postures such as Forward Folds, Arm Balances, Hip Openers and Basic Backbends. Class will begin with at least an hour long asana class aimed at learning ones individual skeletal structure and range of motion in the ankle, knee, hip and spine allows students to approach postures with wisdom and can help prevent unnecessary injuries in these areas. We will look at how these joints are affected in standing, seated, and other categories of postures. Class will be followed by a lecture where students will learn about how the hip’s limitation and position impact the spine, learn underlying reasons for the range of motion in the hip and how to keep your lower back and SI region safe.
Sun Oct 22nd (am) 8:30am – 11:30am – Wrists, Elbows and Shoulders
Asana can and does injure students’ wrists, elbows and shoulders far too often, but it’s something that can be avoided. There are some basic skeletal issues that need to be understood in relation to the upper extremities and shoulders as they impact poses where body weight is placed on the hands. We will begin with at least an hour long asana class designed to allow students to explored these regions of their body in both weight bearing and non-weight bearing poses. Class will be followed by a lecture where the anatomy and mechanics of these joint regions will be explored and discussed and students individual range of motion and strength will be looked at as it relates to common postures in class allowing them to learn how to modify and work with wisdom for their own unique physicality.
Sun Oct 22nd (pm) 1:30pm – 4:30pm – Shoulders and Spine
In a similar fashion to the hip and spine, the shoulder and spine also participate in a partnership that can help strengthen and stabilize those regions preventing injury when functioning properly. Drawing on the information from the earlier modules while adding in newly learned information in this workshop, students will start with an asana practice with the full body in mind and bring all of the pieces together. We will then dissect the shoulder girdle and spine as they relate to inversions and backbends that may have previously been out of reach from an understanding of your own unique structure. We will also look at how twists function within the spine and how to approach them with the underlying layers of the body in mind. At the end of this workshop students will know their own unique body, it’s range, and how to work with it with wisdom in any asana class they attend.

 Flow Therapy

Balance your elements (winter/water, spring/wood)

yoga|massage therapy | aromatherapy

with Patricia Letendre et Maïté Godin

Sept 17th 2017 – Feb 25th & May 6th

These yoga classes target the balance of your elements throughout the seasons based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine.

The classes consist of 60 minutes of vinyasa flow (yang) followed by 60 minutes of yin, during which we use the therapeutic benefits of essential oils as well as massotherapy maneuvers to activate the energy work of the meridians.

I discover yoga in 2001 during a session of classical ballet training at Montreal’s Dance Conservatory. The two first years of my voyage through this discipline were more difficult. Slowly, my relationship with yoga transformed itself into love at first sight. It then became obvious to me that I needed to teach. In 2009, I started the Hatha yoga teacher training at the Satyam school of Hatha yoga with Swami Premananda Saraswati (Hervé Blondon). Yoga is a passion, a daily exercise, but especially a lifestyle that allows me to maintain harmony in all aspects of my life. For me, a yoga class is a protected space that allows each person to enter inside themselves and achieve their own objectives, their own well-being.

Having always been intrigued by the human nature, my journey through massage therapy allowed me to explore the combination between our body composition and our emotional dimension. In 2007 I started my training in Swedish therapeutic massage at the Guijek school in Montreal. I then continued my training, focusing more on globalizing and energetic approaches, such as Yoga, Reiki and Lomilomi. Today, I want to offer assets to the population so that they can take care of themselves using different techniques.
