Yasodhara Yoga

Symbols, Secrets & Metaphor ~ Hidden Language of Yoga 

Developed by Swami Radha, Yasodhara Yoga is a gentle and meditative style of Hatha that respects the body as a spiritual tool.  By working with metaphor, symbolism, imagery and visualization, the ‘hidden’ messages of each asana are revealed.

Pause. Open the body and mind through yogic techniques such as breath, visualization, reflection and relaxation. Take time to acknowledge your learning, challenges and victories from the past year. Re-examine priorities and choices. Choose the creative direction for your future with clarity. Let your wisdom speak. Please bring a journal and yoga mat.

Authentic Visioning

Workshop & Guided Meditation 

In this workshop, you will be guided through a balanced approach to visioning that will help you uncover your deepest desires for life. Together, we will take this vision and distill it into tangible goals and plans with this deeply-rooted foundation as their guide. Walking away from this workshop, you will feel confident that the vision you created is true to your heart and values. Rather than a list of ‘should-dos’, you’ll have a full, integrative picture of your way forward, encompassing all areas of life to honour the fullness of your being; a vision that feels true to you. 
What to bring:
– journal
– pen
– yoga mat, meditation cushion or anything else you’d like to feel comfortable sitting on the floor
– your imagination!

Mindful Living

Nourishment for the Body, Mind, and Soul

Mindful Living is like walking a labyrinth. It takes great courage to stand in a virtual doorway with an intention to walk round and round exploring deeply what is at the core of our being. Rather than walking the classical labyrinth celtic-like path, we virtually shine a light on our inner most being through contemplative & provocative conversation.

Mindful Living is a time for sharing, self-discovery, study of ancient yogic texts, and some kind of gentle moving, silent, or guided meditation.

Mindful Living is under creative construction until further notice!

Next RETREAT ~ Fall 2018

Passport to Possibility

Visualizing a life of that comes from the heart starts with getting very quiet, asking poignant questions, and listening deeply. It is honouring and celebrating the unique way in which we intend to deliver our gifts, talents, and skills in this world.

An extended long weekend retreat is an opportunity to awaken your inner spirit, nurture your heart’s longing, spend time in nature, meet new friends, and go home with a whole new perspective on life.

Powerful personal healing work will come from moving the body, mind & spirit through: gentle & restorative yoga with essential oils, a soulful 5-element dance, meditation (guided & silent), reflective provocative journaling, a sacred traditional drumming circle, and perhaps more spiritual practices.

Picture this … nutritious and delicious gourmet meals, comfortable & cozy accommodation, plenty of time for rest and relaxation &/or a more active and vigorous winter walk in the snow.

4-5 day Retreat in the Laurentians
Long-term planning is underway for late summer~early fall 2018 retreat

Investment: TBC based on Program, Accommodation & Meals
