2.      New Yoga Therapy Program:  “Getting Unstuck”  

8 week program from Thursday April 10th-May 29th  9:30-11am  (drop-in class, no registration necessary).

“Getting Unstuck” is a new Yoga Therapy program designed by Kerry to help you get out of negative cyclical patterns and help you get “unstuck” physically, mentally and emotionally by providing new, positive patterns on a neurological level through relaxation, meditation, breathwork, yoga nidra, mindful movement such as somatics and restorative yoga practices. “Getting Unstuck” will be an 8 week progressive program where we will build on our experience each week building greater resiliency and inner strength to make the changes we are longing for in our lives.

This class will be offered as a drop-in class during our regularly scheduled Thursday morning class (9:30am). If, however, you would like to make a commitment to attend the full 8 weeks, please send me an email and I will add you to a registration list and I’ll keep track of your attendance. At the end of the session we will have a little celebration to honour the participants!


3.      Yoga for Chronic Pain Course: Monday April 28th-June 16th  *Full

Yoga for Chronic Pain Course is a progressive yoga therapy program aimed at helping you manage and give you the tools for helping yourself get out of pain. The course will include Yoga Therapy practices such as: Functional Alignment, relaxation techniques, breathwork, strength/stability/coordination, and stretching muscles and fascia tissues.

The Spring Session is now full, however, I am looking to offer this course again in the summer and fall. Please let me know if you are interested in future sessions of this revolutionary program.
