Workshops & Events

Grounding and Mobility of the Feet

For a solid and agile base

with Julien Gagnon

Saturday October 29rd from 2 pm to 4 pm

This workshop begins with some basic anatomical notions concerning the feet, in particular the plantar arches. Then you will learn several exercises with the aim of mobilizing and strengthening the feet and ankles. Subsequently, the concept of arches will be put into by exploring the distribution of weight in the tripod of the foot. First, this exploration will be done in simple yoga postures and then evolve into more complex movements and postures where the distribution of weight in the lower limbs is less obvious and requires more force.

** Workshop offered in French.

Movement and Body Writing

with Brigitte Vaillancourt and Vincent Brault

Saturday October 1st from 1 pm to 4 pm

We tend to think that writing is only about thinking, and that the body is only about movement. Yet, the movements of the body influence our thinking and vice versa.

All of creation is movement: movements of the mind, movements towards others, towards oneself, movements of fingers on a keyboard, pen on a page. This workshop is an invitation to explore the relationship between the body and creative writing.

The workshop will be divided into sessions of yoga, writing and discussion. It is open to everyone, whether you write a little or a lot, professionally or as a hobby. No yoga experience is required.

The workshop will be led by Vincent Brault, writer and professor of philosophy (Le fantôme de Suzuko, La chair de Clémentine, Le cadavre de Kowalski) and Brigitte Vaillancourt, yoga teacher and writer (Saison chaude, La voie du cœur, Les marées).

Breathing
The essence of the practice

with Julien Gagnon

Saturday November 26th, 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.

Yoga Wall

with Patricia Garcia

Saturdays November 5, 12th, 19th
2pm to 4pm

Infuse creativity, depth, and joy into your practice with these Yoga Wall classes. The yoga wall is an accessory that allows you to explore the asanas with a whole new perspective. These classes offer you the opportunity to experience your postures with added grounding and allow you to play with gravity. Variations at the wall and off the wall will be offered to better integrate the actions and space created in the body in this practice. Places on the wall are limited, we can accommodate only 8 participants per session. Modifications/adaptations will be proposed to each person; we will take the time to align ourselves correctly and feel each posture. A basic yoga experience is highly recommended.

workshop #1 : Standing postures
workshop #2 : Extensions
workshop #3 : Flexions

* For these workshops, a studio presence is required.

Hatha yoga and Yoga Nidra

with Kim Zombik

Fridays September 30th and November 18th, 2022
7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

 

The rishis of India have traditionally used the practice of asana to prepare the body and mind for meditation. This session begins with an all-levels practice of asana (both active and passive) to unlock our bodies and clear our minds for Yoga Nidra.
During Yoga Nidra, an ancient technique where the practitioner enters deep states of conscious relaxation, you will be invited to rotate your awareness to different body parts and sensations to restore your body, its senses, and your mind to their natural function. In the process, we awaken our Unitive Awareness, that fully sees our wholeness, tranquillity, and well-being.

Yin Yoga and Sound Meditation

with Kim Zombik

Friday December 16th, 2022
7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

 

Nikolas Tesla once said: “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

The ancient and worldwide healing practice of using sound vibrations to gently disperse blockages, nourish the body and balance the brain brings transcendental relaxation, and deep contact with the secrets of the True Self.

After a period of yin yoga and guided meditation, expect to be immersed in a deep listening experience of the tones of a collection of metal and crystal singing vessels, voice, along with other instruments.

Autumn Sadhana : Falling into Fall

With Kim Zombik
Saturday October 22nd, 2022
1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The late summer and autumn seasons dance a slow colorful transition between harvesting the bounty of summer’s effervescence and reorganizing for the quiet interiority of approaching winter.

In Chinese medicine the primary organ systems linked to these changes are the spleen and the lungs. Using Yin and restorative yoga, sound and qi gong, this workshop will help assimilate summer’s experiences, manage any sadness that may appear, and support the immune system as the leaves fall from the trees.

Mindfulness Meditation Foundations

With Gabriel Genest
7 Mondays, from 9:05 pm to 10:05 pm
September 19th to October 31st
November 7th to December 19th

 

This course aims to establish the foundations of mindfulness meditation with the Unified Mindfulness system, a clear, precise and comprehensive approach to meditation. The practice of meditation is defined in this system as the development of three complementary attentional skills: concentration, sensory clarity and equanimity.

The program for this session will present five meditation techniques and how to use them according to the needs, interests, and opportunities that arise in our lives. We will also learn how to practice these techniques in action in our daily lives, how to deal with obstacles that may arise in meditation and how to grow and deepen our practice over time.

Including teachings on techniques and strategies, guided meditations, and periods for discussions about practice, this highly interactive course aims to make the practice of mindfulness meditation accessible to all and to debunk myths that hinder its practice.

Both those who have never practiced meditation and experienced meditators who wish to deepen their practice are welcome!
