Summer is the time for movement, expansion and expression. This June, let’s revel in the beauty of sunshine with a shared Summer Solstice practice!

Summer sadhana:
« The illuminated Heart »

With Kim Zombik

July 12 to 16 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. – Jarry Park (or on Zoom if it rains)

 

Sadhana can be defined as The Return Journey. What are we returning to?  Through practice, we return to our true divine nature that lies within the heart of the heart, beneath our conditioned individual selves, as a state of grace and love.

Please join us in a week-long morning sadhana that will include inspirational readings, meditation and simple asana and qi gong practices (focusing on the heart and kidneys), all to embody the radiance of our True Heart.

Price: $ 85 taxes included for the 5 sessions

Series

Yoga and meditation for BIPOC

With Kim Zombik

Thursdays | 5 : 30 pm to 6 : 45 pm | January 14th, February 18th, March 18th, April 22nd
Sundays | 1 pm to 2 : 15 pm | January 31st, March 7th, April 3rd

 

Kim Zombik warmly welcomes you to a new on-line series at Yoga Bhavana Studio for Black and Indigenous folks and People of Colour. In these BIPOC classes, we will use Yoga, with its ancient intent of profound liberation, as a sacred time to unfold one’s tight body, rest the brain, cool the heart and settle a frazzled nervous system. Outside of the sphere of white-body dominance, let’s explore freedom and liberation in simply being ourselves, moment to moment, through poses and guided meditation. (although she is functional in French, the class will be led in English.)

You’re welcome to join us for one class, or for all three!

Same as regular classes

Therapeutic Yoga and Self Massage

With Alexandrine Lebeau
3 Livestream Classes
Thursdays, February 25th, March 25th and April 29th, 2021

7:30 pm to 8:40 pm

 

A gentle practice aimed at relaxing and loosening the tensions of a specific area, depending on the theme addressed. Self-massages will be offered to promote the release of accumulated tensions, targeted according to the theme of the class. A whole juxtaposing restorative, therapeutic and Yin yoga, with an intention of presence and kindness towards oneself. Consciousness with a global feeling, through slow movements and postures advocating relaxation, will be privileged. You will only come out more present, aware and relaxed. An invigorating, long-term effect.

February 25th | For the face : The face is such a vulnerable place, but at the same time so exposed. This practice offers gentle massage therapy maneuvers from fasciatherapy and lymphatic drainage. All aimed at liberating and relaxing the tissues and joints from the face, jaws and skull as a whole. An interesting practice, during this period “pulling” our facial physiology towards the screen!

March 25th | Upper back and the neck: A therapeutic practice to clear an area stressed on a daily basis, carrying our head and our arms. Soft movements, stretching and gentle mobilizations, followed by yin and restorative yoga postures will be offered, with a therapeutic aim, enhanced by self-massages inspired by Swedish massage.

April 29th | For Sacro-Illiac Health: A therapeutic practice for the sacroiliac area, in order to release and soothe this region which is very much in demand on a daily basis, supporting our locomotion. Adapted postures and self-massage using accessories will be offered.

1 class: 20 $ tx incl.

Trauma centered yoga

Embodied Healing Yoga Series

With Kim Zombik

5 weeks Series

June 29th to July 27th

Tuesdays, 5 : 30pm to 6 : 30 pm

 

In this 5-week series of yoga, 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 series 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.

Fees:
95 $ taxes included for the 5 weeks series.

Introduction to yoga

With Patricia Garcia
6 classes, Next dates TBD
Mondays, 7:30 to 8:40 pm

 

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).
