Virtual retreat:
Taking refuge, in oneself and together

March 27th
8 : 30 am to 12 : 30 pm QC (1 : 30 pm to 5 : 30 pm FR)

 

The Yoga Bhavana team invites you to an online retreat, dedicated to connecting with oneself and with others, to reconnect with one’s center. Almost a year has passed since we are navigating an unprecedented experience that comes with its share of experiences and requirements. That our resources are challenged and that we pay attention to taking care of ourselves and others as best we can. But sometimes we run out of steam, and we lose our way a bit.

Since the opening of Yoga Bhavana in 2012, we have been keen to mark its anniversary in order to thank the community and to come together differently, to meet differently. This year, faced with the adversity that remains very present for a small business, but also for the daily challenge of being peaceful in oneself, two calls have emerged: the need to relaunch our fundraising on the one hand, and the desire to help instill meaning and courage on the other hand. The theme of the refuge appeared. The refuge of the studio, the refuge of our body, the refuge of the community, the refuge of meaning.

We therefore invite you to join a small virtual retreat, to take care of yourself while being together, and to extend the invitation to anyone who could benefit from the shelter’s intention.

Schedule:
8:30 a.m : Opening of the retreat with Patricia and Marie-Daphné
8:50 a.m : Awakening and sensory yoga with Marielle
(Pause)
9:35 a.m : The theme of the refuge: meditations, reflections and discussions with Pierre-Vincent
(Pause)
11 a.m : Back to the moving body, Feldenkrais with Elena
11:35 a.m : Integrating sound bath with Kim
12:10 p.m : End of the retreat with Patricia and Marie-Daphné

For whom: for everyone who wants to make time for themselves and to be together. Spread the word, this is truly open to everyone. 😊

When: March 27, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. QC (1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. FR)

How much: contribution to the fundraising of Yoga Bhavana (we won’t give up!)

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!

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.
