Workshops on Basics with Patricia Leduc
These workshops of 2 Hours are especially built for Yoga Vinyasa beginners or even more intermediate students. The objective is to take the time to unravel asanas and to really understand the alignements and the muscles groups to activate in order to feel confortable in the posture and above all to be able to breathe within it. It is possible to get injured in Yoga, especially if you repeat again and again a bad mouvement several time a week, a month on the same articulation. These workshops will allow you to avoid injuries and take a break. A break that we don’t always have the time to take during regular classes so enjoy it, we always learn something !!!
Saturday, 17th of November – 2pm to 4pm – Mile End
Cosmic Flow – Astrology and Yoga
In this workshop, we approach yoga from a different angle. If stars have an effect on our body and our psyche, then we can adapt our practice to harness these energies in a productive way.
In this 2 hour 30 minute cosmic workshop, we will use asanas as a Slow Flow, guided meditations and a writing ritual to clarify our intentions. All this while deepening our understanding of current astrological transits.
Apart from your usual yoga gear, you will need to bring a journal and a pen.
