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!

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.

Fee:

85 $ tx. incl. for the complete sadhana

Spring Sadhana : Spiral into Spring

With Kim Zombik

March 15th – 19th, 2021

5 mornings, 6:30 am to 7:30 am

 

Spring is the time when the great thawing begins here, the sap rises, buds begin to form and we unfold our cocooned winter bodies. In traditional Chinese medicine, this upward and expansive impulse is related to the element of wood and to the Liver and gallbladder. These organs influence our capacity to have a clear view of what we would like to grow in the garden of our lives, and how to go about planting those seeds.

In this 5 day long sadhana, using both yin and hatha postures as well as sound, we will shake the old stagnant chi from the liver and gallbladder so that we can truly spiral into spring.

Fee:

85 $ tx. incl. for the complete sadhana

20 $ tx. incl. for one class
