Term 4 Yoga ~ Yr Weekly Sanctuary

Yoga Me Well Students look like this ;-) Spring! It’s time to grow into your new skin.

If Life is wearing you out, or you’re ready to deepen your existing yoga practice, Yoga Me Well’s classes are a small, safe, friendly environment in which to explore yoga in a reflective way.  We move slowly, breath matched to movement. We take time to pause, feel and reflect on what bubbles up during class, so we move into the week open to observe behaviours more consciously.  Deep rest is an essential part of each class to restore you.

Reserve your spot, or trial class, now.  With only 9 people per class, places fill quickly.

I’ll look forward to sharing this wonderful, progressive inner practice with you.

The moment the body grunts, we pop a pill. What would happen if we stopped drugging our bodies for speaking up, and started listening instead?               read more…

Rules for Being Human

pathway spring day

1. You will receive a body.

You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period    this time around.

2. You will learn lessons.

You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day you will have the opportunity to learn. You may like the lessons, or think them irrelevant and stupid.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.

Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation.  The failed experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately works. read more…
