Join us for an afternoon of connection, movement, and integrative flow. All levels and abilities welcome. $35 // 1:30p-4p.
DEEP HOUSE FLOW 1-2:15p Move freely within the Spānda (vibration / pulsation). Flow with the energy that expands and contracts, a drawing in and expanding out. Class focus is on the Spānda that we experience in the body in standing and seated postures. Music will be deep, melodic, and carefully curated to fit the movements offered. All abilities welcome. Music by DJ Spanda Movement by Lauren Côté
BREATHWORK JOURNEY 2:15p-3:15p Often called Holotropic breathwork, or conscious connected breath, this practice of integrative body breathwork aims to soften the physical armouring created by the ego, trauma and dis-ease and gives us access to the emotional states that we have disowned, denied or disassociated from. This is a safe space for being with what hasn’t been safe to be with, to be held by community while inviting inner freedom within. Lead by Lauren Côté Assisted by Anjali-Allie
Class OMkar Deepen your mind body connection through collective chanting and meditating on the sacred sound of OM. Together, we’ll chant OM in repetition - harmonically blending our voices together as one. The chanting of OM is said to purify the environment around you and creates positive energy within. Repition, or Japa, helps you to focus and concentrate on one thing at a time. Chanting Om can also help you to improve your immunity system and self-healing power. You’re welcome to join or let the healing vibrations of primordial OM wash over you.
