NEW LATE FALL CLASSES start October 17 & 19, 2022
One of the definitions I use for the word Yoga is 'the process of becoming more aware'. This is the basis for my teaching philosophy. It becomes the measurement I offer students to know if the yoga they are practicing is serving them.
Each class I teach offers opportunity to explore this subject through breath, alignment and movement of your body as well as stillness.
Classes are offered in 6-10 week sessions (click here for the calendar)
Participate online (up to 20 people) or in-person (up to 8 people)
If you are coming in-person, please bring your own yoga mat and towel to lay over props
Each class is recorded and posted to YouTube for you to watch if you miss a live class
No drop-ins at this time
The 10 week session fee is $210 (tax in)
To register with an e-transfer or inquire, please email Beth - firstname.lastname@example.org (see below to register with credit card)
9:00-10:15 am - All Levels Exploratory Hatha Yoga
The emphasis in this all levels class is on exploring movement and learning about how the human body is meant to work and more importantly how your own body moves or doesn’t move. This is not a class about ‘getting a workout’
I often say my favourite definition of yoga is the ‘process of becoming ore aware’. I can’t teach awareness, but I can invite you to move towards it by creating an environment that asks for presence - connecting mind to body. Noticing, sensing and feeling are tools to unlock areas of the mind and body and bring them closer to being one.
We may use props such as the wall, chairs, belts, blocks, tennis balls, dowels and blankets. Whether you have had a little or a lot of yoga experience, this class is for you as I offer many variations and modifications.
"Beth is a wise yoga educator, her class is always refreshing to anyone wanting to find some inspiration, movement, and mind body connection. If you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, and you are open to receive, you will enjoy her teachings. Thanks Beth for hosting online yoga, as a Mom of 2 under the age"
"I have had the privilege of practicing Restorative and Gentle Yoga with Beth, in studio, and, more recently, virtually. She immediately draws people into her aura by virtue of her intuition, depth of knowledge and inner wisdom. Beth’s caring, virtual presence is felt as if you were physically in the room with her! Her teachings and invitations are transformative physically, spiritually and mindfully~ she speaks to the heart. Beth is masterful in offering precise descriptions of body alignment and postures, and provides entry points for all of us, wherever we are, on our yoga journeys. I am always inspired by her… and benefit from reflecting on her teachings for my own personal growth and insight."
"In challenging times like these we need to keep moving! Beth’s Gentle Yoga certainly provides that and I can assure you all that I feel very good at the end of it!
I am balance challenged and this is on the mat (for the most part) and I have never felt over my head! (Love it!! Should have started it sooner!)"
9:00-10:00 am - Gentle & Therapeutic Hatha Yoga
Yoga as a healing tool and therapy is an incredible gift. In this class, every week you'll be offered combinations of gentle movement with focused alignment cues that can release as well as strengthen the body; mindful breathing techniques, visualizations and meditation that can serve to bring you into your body and away from mental chatter; and restorative yoga, a yoga prop supported practice that invites you to rest and restore into the calming and healing side of your nervous system.
This class is geared towards those in need of a slower paced, gentle and healing practice. Also suitable for anyone living with injuries, persistent physical challenges, cancer, anxiety and depression.
This class requires that you are able to come down onto the floor, stand and sit on a chair. We will practice modified 'traditional' yoga standing poses as well as poses and positions laying on the floor and sitting in a chair.
