Classes descriptions


Restorative yoga is a therapeutic practice that promotes deep relaxation for the body and mind through supportive poses. The approach stems from the Iyengar method and uses accessories and props (blocks, straps, bolsters, chairs, etc.) Restorative yoga encourages the prolonged holding of poses which help restore, fortify and reset the different systems of the body. This practice aims to balance the nervous system, which simultaneously improves breathing, concentration, presence, letting go, stability and patience.

Restorative Yoga and Yin

In this anti-stress course par excellence, we encourage tranquility, simplicity, relaxation and a profound letting go. A marriage between the repertoires of passive restorative yoga and yin yoga, the range of poses offered are devoted entirely to relaxation. The passivity of the muscles in these postures allows a relaxation and a stretching of the muscular and connective tissues, in addition to mobilizing the joints. This approach is an ideal complement to dynamic activities (vinyasa yoga, martial arts, athletic training, etc.), or when rest is necessary, as in during a convalescence. Accessible to everyone.

Mondays 2 pm to 3 : 10 pm
Tuesdays 7 : 30 pm to 8 : 40 pm
Wednesdays 8 : 30 am to 9 : 30 am (Therapeutic and Restorative)
Thursdays 7 : 30 pm to 8 : 40 pm (Restorative and Breath)
Fridays 12 pm to 1 : 10 pm ; 5 : 30 to 6 : 30 pm (Vinyasa and Restorative)

Deepening into Restorative Yoga

An advanced restorative yoga class for students familiar with using props, and with the poses and principles of alignment proposed in active postural yoga classes.

In this course, the sequences of poses are designed to develop a sustained attention and body consciousness; they also require a stable muscle commitment and an ability to relax during effort. The main intention of the course is to encourage the relaxation response of the central nervous system, which contributes to overall homeostasis. Designed for the management of stress, anxiety and depressive tendencies, this course also strengthens the immune, digestive and respiratory systems. This practice cultivates interiority, endurance, benevolence and equanimity. These classes requires prior experience of yoga. Expect to sometimes explore standing poses, inversions, yoga wall, chairs, etc.

Note that there is no Deepening into Restorative Yoga class on the current schedule.

Postural yoga practice helps to improve posture and relax tensions, while developing body awareness, stability, fluidity, strength, endurance, breathing, confidence and concentration.

Postural Yoga Hatha

Formerly called « active restorative, » this course is particularly inspired by the alignment-based methods of yoga. In the course, we explore the notions of alignment essential to a practice that is respectful of each person’s body. We take the time to dissect, feel and integrate the principles of movement appropriate to each family of postures (flexion, extension, torsion, inversion, standing). Emphasis is placed on teaching the postures in a safe and systematic way, to avoid injuries, reduce discomforts and encourage mobility as much as force. Yoga accessories (bolsters, chairs, straps, etc.) are frequently used in this course to assist in the learning process. Accessible to everyone.

Mondays 5 : 45 pm to 6 : 55 pm
Thursdays 5 : 45 pm to 6 : 55 pm, level 2
Fridays 9 am to 10 : 10 am

Postural Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa yoga offers a dynamic approach where yoga postures are progressively linked. Our vinyasa courses combine the precision of alignment, with physical commitment and the joy of movement. In this course, you will be invited to synchronize your breathing and your movements, which will push you to move with attention. You will come out of this course reinvigorated, with a calm and clear mind and spirit. Requires prior experience.

Mondays 9 am to 10:10 (vinyasa and yin) &  7 : 30 pm to 8 : 40 pm
Wednesdays 5 : 45 pm to 6 : 55 pm
Thursdays 9 am to 10 : 10 am
Fridays 5 : 30 pm to 6 : 30 pm (vinyasa and restorative)
Saturdays 9 am to 10 : 10

These courses are designed for anyone managing particular needs; including injury prevention or management, chronic pain or illness. The courses are open to students of all ages and levels. Since these are group classes, it is possible that the practice differs from one student to another, and that changes are proposed to the course outline so that the practice is appropriate and beneficial to all.

If you are hesitant to join a group course, we recommend that you take a private lesson first, or in parallel.

Therapeutic Yoga – for the back

This course is for people with, or seeking to prevent, back pain. Depending on the needs of students present, emphasis may be placed on muscle relaxation; joint decompression and traction; stretching or reinforcing the torso. By respecting the capabilities of the participants in attendance, this course presents concepts of posture and alignment, in addition to promoting free and easy breathing. The course helps to reduce stress, and promotes better posture and well-being on a daily basis. Accessible to everyone.

Tuesdays 9 am to 10:10 am
Saturdays 11 am to 12:10 pm

Therapeutic and Restorative Yoga

For people dealing with a particular need (chronic tension, fatigue, stress, insomnia, pain, etc.). Depending on the specific needs of the participants and the time of year, we will offer a combination of active postures, gentle movements or stretching, while ensuring a good place for restorative postures. Since the capacity for relaxation of the autonomic nervous system is essential to overall health, a time of relaxation and rest is in fact reserved for this purpose in each class. Open to all.

In the gentle yoga class, you will have the opportunity to apprehend and experience different kinds of postures (sitting, lying, standing) more or less demanding, but with the same attention paid to the ability to maintain a softness and kindness towards oneself. Presence in movement and attention to the body will be privileged. The intensity of the stretch will not be the primary factor in your practice. You will only come out more present, aware and above all more connected to the subtle circulation of your vital energy (prana). An invigorating, long-term effect.

Feldenkrais is a mind-body approach. Its connects our sensory, motor and cognitive capacities through movement.

Although movement is an essential ingredient of Feldenkrais, the technique is not in the service of fitness. Instead of a focus on immediate results and performance, which is all too common today, Feldenkrais proposes we take the time to experience a meditative experience in our body. During classes, we constantly seek higher states of attention. Through their voice, the teacher guides the participants through a series of actions that participants integrate in their own way, becoming aware of their habits and discovering new ways of moving.

A regular practice of Feldenkrais improves posture, balance, mobility and coordination. It reduces the likelihood of injury and constitutes a powerful tool for improving artistic or sporting gestures, as well as better pain and stress management. Accessible to everyone.

Feldenkrais lessons are exceptionally not offered in 2021.

For anyone intrigued by Hatha Yoga, or wishing to review the basics of the practice. In a gentle, safe and progressive way, these classes will introduce and analyze the main families of postures (standing, forward bends, backbends, twists and inversions) as well as some breathing and meditation exercises.

The “small group / on registration” formula will allow the teacher to offer personalized follow-up in order to adapt the practice to the reality of each student.

This series is a great way to get started with yoga and experience the benefits that the practice can offer on a physical, emotional and mental level. The course will then allow participants to follow the « Postural Hatha” courses with confidence!

Accessories needed: belt, chair, one or two towels (or blankets).

This series is not currently offered. We recommend you join Postural Hatha classes.

For anyone who wants to start the day in connection with themselves. These morning practices include movement and yoga postures as well as breathing and meditation exercises. We will take care to open the body with attention, allowing you to listen to your limits and respect them. Methods may vary depending on the teacher and the needs of the participants.

In this yoga class, we will be engaged in Trauma Centered/informed care. This means that instead of receiving yoga instruction to learn to “do a pose right”, you will be invited to tune into your felt sense and to make choices about how you want to move. Although I will be guiding movement, offering options, you will be fully in control of your own practice, moving in and out of shapes as you like.  I also will be making choices based on my own felt-experience of each moment.

There are many forms of trauma, and one common aspect is that trauma often includes an event or series of events that has compromised or erased (or continues to) our sense of self-agency and our capacity to make choices based on how we feel. This Embodied Healing class is a space to begin to gently reconnect to our physical sensations, our authentic selves and our own empowerment.

The on-line nature of the course more easily allows participants to opt in or out of any movement invitation without the self-consciousness that may arise at an in-person class. You choose whether to have your camera open or closed, whatever will support your practice. Doing movements in your own way, changing the tempo, doing something completely different, simply watching or listening to class, or opting out at any moment, are all welcome expressions of exploration!

In this movement-based class, there will be no discussion of traumatic experiences, no need to explain or justify your relationship to trauma. My hope is that we will be learning to make choices about how we want to move and feel, and nurturing our capacity for resilience, self-agency, and empowerment.
