I've never done Yoga before... I am not sure if it's for me
The practice of yoga is often perceived as a physical activity that serves to relax and stretch the body. Although these aspects are true, yoga is much more than that. The practice of yoga is an art that creates a union between the body, the heart, mind and spirit. It is also to live in harmony with ourselves and with a larger-than-life entity. The postures (called "asanas") are indeed the best-known aspects of yoga. Their daily practice brings strength, balance and flexibility. But on a deeper level, the challenge of yoga is the exploration and control of emotions, which is accessible to all.
Benefits of practicing in a small studio
Our studio is not very big. We wanted to create a warm and friendly space, where everyone would feel at home. In our experience, students feel more comfortable and progress much faster when they practice within a smaller group!
Meet out team! (By clicking on their picture, you will have a small biography of each one)
Each one of them has an outstanding expertise as a yoga teacher, having their certification granted with success. They all bring their own little touche to the team, and you will most likely love them all as soon as you meet them! They will be the best to guide you though this wonderful discipline, whatever level you are in!
Hatha: Hatha Yoga is the most known and practiced form of yoga in the Western world. During this class, you will learn the basic postures by linking them to harmonize the body and the mind. This type of yoga pays particular attention to alignment and breathing.
Ashtanga: Ashtanga yoga is a method transmitted by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). It involves synchronizing the breath with progressive series of postures, a process that produces intense internal heat and purifying perspiration that detoxifies muscles and organs. Circulation is improved, the body becomes strong and light, and the mind gradually calms down.
Vinyasa: With a strong presence of cardiovascular work, this course consists of a series of postures that follow one another quickly, always in symbiosis with the breath. Flow is an incredibly complete exercise, thanks to both muscle and cardiovascular intensity. You will leave your session, rejuvenated and toned, and full of energy to face your daily life!
Yin: Renowned to promote relaxation, flexibility and health of the body, Yin yoga is suitable for beginners as well as experienced yogis and yoginis. This practice is based on long stretching, combining slow and deep breathing. Characterized by postures held for several minutes, Yin yoga allows to work the whole body and mind. You will come out liberated, serene and in complete fullness.
Yang / Yin: To help restore the balance of our physical, mental and energetic bodies between solar and lunar energy, this course will combine a portion of Hatha flow (yang), with the gentler practice of yin (slower postures and held longer). The yin part of this course aims to seal the connective tissue, while trying to increase circulation in the joints and promote flexibility. Let yourself feel completely in balance - energetically, physically and mentally!
Yoga Therapy: 8-class series - July 9 to August 27 (Mondays from 7:30pm to 8:45pm)
Yoga Therapy can address many specific and diffuse symptoms and discomforts, of different natures (physical, emotional and mental), in a very concrete way, using the body as a gateway to the whole person. Classes include postures, movements and self-examinations that can reactivate the blood and energy circulation, as well as the nervous system to be deposited, in order to function optimally. Tensions deeply buried throughout the body relax slowly, allowing different tissues to regenerate, feed and clean themselves more effectively. At the base of the practice? Relaxation, anchoring on the ground and feeling. Yoga therapy allows you to regain the ability to feel, to learn to live in your body and to settle in yourself, and thus to gain clarity about what you want and really feel. By refocusing little by little in oneself, and by bringing our presence in the more sensitive and painful parts of the body, we learn to enter into a dialogue with our own body, and we understand it better ... we understand each other better! We gradually learn to take care of ourselves, our body and our life.
