    3:30 pm-4:30 pm
    2019.04.02

    Instructor: Sue McGiffin
    Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

    Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

You will be gently guided to unlock these patterns and feel a renewed sense of ease and comfort in these muscles. Your mind and body will relax and you will walk out feeling a renewed vitality to take on your life once again!

    This class is suitable for all ages and abilities.

  • Yoga and the Neurological System 10am-2pm
    10:00 am-2:00 pm
    2019.04.13

    with Jada Muehlenberg, RMT and Yoga Instructor

    When: Saturday, April 13th, 10:00am-2:00pm

    Investment: $60 per person

    This course is open to anyone wanting to understand yoga and its effects on the neurological system in relation to rehabilitation, stress reduction, chronic pain, and neuro-muscular facilitation

    4-5 hour course including an optional yoga practice to wrap up the day.

    About:

    Why is the neurological system so important when looking at the effects of yoga on the whole body?

    Sensations from internal and external stimulus are perceived, interpreted, and responded to, by our neurological system. Some of these responses are done consciously, and others unconsciously. This perception and response to stimulus is vital for homeostasis within the body, and makes up our experiences- pain, pleasure, memories, learning, self awareness and so much more. What if we knew we could use intentional movement and meditation to effect the neurological system, therefore effecting our experiences- pain, pleasure, memories, learning, self awareness and so much more? How can we share this practice with others to help them free themselves from pain, experience pleasure more easily, face and release painful memory, fortify new memories (habits/patterns) fortify new learning (thought patterns, muscle memory) and empower self awareness with self love and nurturing?

    Facilitator: Jada Muehlenberg, RMT, RYT200

    Jada is the founder of Yogascience.ca. She lives on the Southwest Coast of Vancouver Island where she practices Massage Therapy in a physiotherapy clinic. She is a mother of two, a student of the health sciences, and a lover of all things nature. “When I started practicing yoga,Iwas looking for a deeper connection to my physical body, as I had shifted into planning for motherhood and wanted to prepare my body for what pregnancy would bring. I never imagined how profound the practice would be for me, not just physically, but spiritually” Jada continued with her personal practice for many years before taking her first Teacher Training. “It was in my first training that I recognized the powerful platform yoga had given me for my personal transformation.” She continued to study Patanjali’s Sutras and the 8-limbed path, and continues to be a student in her own Yoga practice and lifestyle. “It has given me an endless learning path, one that leads to more clarity and balance.” Jada provides a grounded, safe space for her students to look deeper within themselves, and empowers her students to connect with the body’s innate desire to heal itself. Her Teachings focus on evidence based information, but do not lack the intangible magic and spirit that is yoga.

    Instructor: Sue McGiffin
    Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

    Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

    Class description: Introduction to Somatics

    Instructor: Carolyn Pigott
    You will be introduced to fundamental movements that reconnect your brain to your muscles. Through the practice of deep breathing techniques and mindful awareness you will discover areas of your body that are stuck in something called sensory motor amnesia, a chronically tight state in the muscles. You will be gently guided to unlock these patterns and feel a renewed sense of ease and comfort in these muscles. Your mind and body will relax and you will walk out feeling a renewed vitality to take on your life once again!

    This class is suitable for all ages and abilities.

  • Children’s Yoga (ages 5-7) 3:30-4:30pm
    3:30 pm-4:30 pm
    2019.04.30

    Instructor: Sue McGiffin
    Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

    Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

    Investment: $60/6 weeks
