Therapeutic workshop for the face and neck

with Alexandrine Lebeau

Saturday May 28th, from 2 pm to 4 pm

 

A moment for yourself aimed at clearing and relaxing the face, especially the neck, jaws and forehead, through simple and gentle techniques from Fasciatherapy and lymphatic drainage. Manual maneuvers combined with the Gua Sha approach (which means scraping or dislodging stagnant Qi energy) will also be proposed in order to clear, relax, tone and enhance the face and neck. The self-massage session will be followed by a rejuvenating and soothing therapeutic and restorative practice that also promotes relaxation of the neck and release of the upper body.

*You will preferably need a Gua Sha tool for the workshop, but a simple tablespoon can do.  Example of Gua Sha

Standing upside down
Exploring inversions

with Brigitte Vaillancourt

Sunday June 5th, from 10 am to 12 pm

 

Inversions refer to postures in which the hips are higher than the heart. They result in a generous supply of blood to the head, which revitalizes the entire body. Using the support of the wall and other props, we will explore the principles of alignment necessary to safely perform handstand postures. In doing so, we will pay particular attention to the playfulness of these postures, which are sources of energy, strength and joy.

*For this workshop, it’s preferable, safer, to privilege a studio presence over live broadcast.
**To follow the workshop at home, you must already have an established practice of inverted postures.

Breathing
The essence of the practice

with Julien Gagnon

Saturday June 18th, from 2 pm to 4 pm

 

This workshop begins with some basic anatomical notions about breathing. Then separate work will be offered for passive breathing and for active breathing. Thus, the first part of the workshop will be dedicated to the deepening of our passive breathing, that is to say abdominal, using especially imaging and deep relaxation. Then, in the second part, you’ll be introduced to different approaches to active breathing, which is used for movement and during physical activity. In short, this workshop will present breathing as a powerful tool for relaxation and as an undisputed guide to movement.

Anchoring through the action of the legs :
toning and mobilizing to better move

with Alexandrine Lebeau

Saturday July 30th, from 2 pm to 4 pm

 

A balanced active practice exploring the power of physical and energetic anchoring that the action of the legs offers us through a yoga adapted to the summer turn, to renewal, while connecting with the earth element and the changes surrounding it. Sustained and dynamic, the practice will be composed of elements of Hatha yoga, Vinyasa and targeted therapeutic movements. Mobilize and tone the lower limbs; a great preparation for summer physical activities!

Deep Rest and Revitalization

with Marie-Daphné Roy

New dates coming soon

 

Join Marie-Daphné for her favorite type of workshops with you: long sessions of deep rest and well-deserved loving-kindness. We will slow down and settle in postures, in order to access inner places of presence, tranquility and surrender.

Also called “supported” yoga, restorative yoga uses props in order to remain comfortable in yoga postures and to allow the effects to be felt deeply, especially in the organs and the nervous system.

Fee

Live broadcast : 50 $ tx. included

Important information

– Reserve your place in advance, online.
– For registrants, Zoom recordings are available for the following seven days.
