Hatha Flow
with Robin Bennett

Mondays 4:30pm – 5:30pm
Location: 20 Douglas St. (Barres + Bells)

Hatha Flow: Based on traditional styles of Yoga, this class focuses on breath control (Ujjayi), Bandhas (protecting the lower back), and Asanas (poses). Poses may be held for a few breaths; bringing the mind into the present, conditioning muscles to be lean and strong, developing core awareness, and improving balance. Guidance and modifications will be offered. No previous yoga experience is necessary, as alternative poses will offered to suit all levels of experience.

Hips & Hamstrings
With Katie Junkin

Mondays 5:45pm – 7:00pm
Location: 20 Douglas St. (Barres + Bells)

Hips & Hamstrings will explore movement in the physical areas of the pelvis and hamstrings and the energetic root and sacral chakra areas, encouraging a deepening of the musculature and fascial systems and increasing range of motion. This practice will help to ease tension from daily life sitting at a desk or sporting endeavours that often leave these areas tight and with restricted range of motion. The class will combine yang (flow/strength based movements) and yin (slow, long holds) to access and integrate the muscular, fascial and energetic systems within the body, with a focus on the hips and hamstrings!

Morning Practice
with Jacqueline Gilbey

Tuesdays 9:30am – 10:45am
Location: 42 Quebec St. (Guelph Youth Dance)

Tight back and shoulders? Stiff legs and hips? Find relief with yoga stretches that will help you to feel looser, stronger, more balanced, and less stressed!

Monthly Classes

“Suit Day” with Gina Giammarco

Every first Wednesday of the month is Suit Day in Gina’s on-line Structure Rx class.

1:30pm-2:30pm

Our suit is everything from the skin to the bones and even, to a certain degree, the bone matrix. Everything that holds us together, pumps stuff through our organs, moves us, keeps us upright, thinking, seeing, smelling, tasting; we get it all.

…after this class you feel as if you have been for a
massage or a spa treatment. Gina gets the blood flowing to
all the working parts of our bodies. How can you pass that up?

Monthly Restorative with Lisa Silverstein

ONLINE

Mondays Jan 15, Feb 12, Mar 11
8pm – 9pm  

$19 (includes tax), Passes and Memberships welcome

Rest and relaxation have a deep rejuvenating power and are needed now more than ever. By using props to support the body, the poses can be held for longer periods, allowing the awareness and breath to move deeply inside. As the body progressively relaxes, there is an opportunity for layers of stress and tension to melt away and healing and renewal to take place. For our online classes please have on hand a bolster (or 2 large cushions), 2 blankets, a yoga strap or scarf, a small hand towel, and option for an eye pillow, mask, or eye covering. Suitable for all levels of practitioners.

Monthly Yoga Nidra with Joanne Astley

ONLINE

Mondays Jan 8, Feb 5, Mar 4 
8pm – 9pm  

$19 (includes tax), Passes and Memberships welcome

In this 60-minute class, you will be guided through an iRest Yoga Nidra practice. This is a form of guided meditation in the yogic tradition, which was developed by Richard Miller, clinical psychologist. Students usually lie down on their mat fully supported by props of their choice to be guided into a deep, restorative and restful state.
