A japa mala or mala is a set of beads traditionally worn and used for meditation. Malas are typically made of 108 beads and serve to keep count of the wearer’s affirmations by focusing their awareness and staying mindful in the present moment. Japa Mala means a garland for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra (a meaningful word or phrase).
Explore the therapeutic energy by creating and practicing with your own mala during this workshop. Inspired by tradition, you will be guided through making your own mala and how to use it to recite an affirmation or mantra. As you create, you will have the opportunity to infuse your mala with the power of your intention! A variety of materials including wood, seeds and/or gemstones will be used. All mala materials are provided.

Suitable for: anyone who has a pelvic floor and might be experiencing issues including incontinence, constipation, painful sexual intercourse, and even back pain, among others...see below...
Pelvic health issues are common, but that doesn’t mean they are normal. Many people are suffering in silence with these issues that could be easily resolved or improved.
When we talk more about pelvic health, we learn that it is really simple to make improvements using breath, movement, and alignment. This information is empowering!
In this 4-hour workshop Shannon will show you how to activate and relax your ‘true’ core 4 (diaphragm, pelvic floor, transversus abdominis and multifidus) so that they work in synergy to serve you.
Men and women of all ages are welcome to attend. We talk about how yoga for pelvic health (along with pelvic floor physiotherapy) can help with:
Incontinence (urinary and fecal)
Painful intercourse and/or sexual dysfunction
Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
Chronic prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate)
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Issues with pregnancy or postpartum recovery
Prolapse of the bladder, bowel or uterus (POP – Pelvic Organ Prolapse)
Back or hip pain
Diastasis of the rectus abdominus (DRA)
Shannon Crow, E-RYT, RCYT, RPYT specializes in yoga for pelvic health and is certified in the hypopressive technique.
Shannon learned about her own pelvic health when she was diagnosed with diastasis of the rectus abdominis, nine years after her youngest child was born. Shannon then realized that was what was causing her back pain (for years).
Shannon enjoys gardening, reading, learning, gardening and exploring the Bruce Peninsula where she lives with her partner Shawn, 3 kids and 2 cats.

Suitable for: everyone intersted an in-depth study on how to connect with your intuition, understand the way each participant communicates with their intuitive faculties, and how to rely upon it in every day life. Yoga teachers welcome.
Description: All human beings are highly attuned and sensitive beings. The question isn’t whether or not you are intuitive, it how do you tune in to what you already know and receive? In this weekend workshop/retreat, along with Certified Medical Intuitive, Colin Matthews, you will explore:
What is intuition?
The different ways we receive information/the language of intuition
How to know the difference between thoughts and knowing
How to see energy in others and work with it skillfully
How to work with your intuition in a meaningful way - as a teacher, parent, friend or citizen of the world.
Explore the ethics and integrity required to properly honour the grace of intuition
Each participant receiving an intuitive reading from Colin, with permission, will be explored through the weekend as an opportunity to learn more about how you are energetically expressing yourself in your body and life.
