Mar 31st 1:45 - 3:45pm || Calm Rebel: Meditation & Breathwork for Anxiety || YYoga Downtown Flow

Are you constantly held captive by thoughts, worries, the past or the future? Be a rebel and remain calm amidst the storms life throws at you.

Meditation brings us into the present moment, yet the practice of being still with ourselves can be uncomfortable. The mind and body tend to disconnect and become anxious. Breath is a simple and effective gateway towards stress release and feeling more present. 

In this workshop, we will explore meditations using pranayama / breath work to soothe the anxieties of daily life. You will leave feeling grounded in understanding your thoughts patterns, breathing tendencies and how to be more aware.

Whether you have experience in meditation, or are new and curious about learning how to shift thought patterns and reduce stress in your life, you won't regret taking this time for yourself. Every ounce of practice counts!

All levels welcome. Bring a journal and a pen. Sign up HERE.

Saturday Apr 6 1:30-4pm || Spring Light: Restorative & Quiet for Openness || One Yoga for the People, Vancouver

It’s no secret – life is full of ups and downs. Life can be chaotic physically & mentally and all these experiences live in the cells of our bodies. When we don’t create time to acknowledge or heal the imbalances in our nervous systems & emotional layers, we are at risk for the heaviness of various diseases and anxiety.

Welcome in a new season and a new cycle with Carolyn. Join her for an afternoon of meditation & restorative yoga – the sweetest aspects of the yoga practice that are often neglected. These practices emphasize conscious breathing & conscious relaxation, which cause a slowed heart rate, slowed breathing, better digestion and immunity.

Come to unlock the hips & the heart. Then sink into a healing meditation on worthiness and self-acceptance.  Quite simply, you can expect to slow right down, dive into tension hidden within yourself and set it free. For the long-term, you will sleep better, breathe deeper and feel like you’ve come home to a more integrated version of yourself.  (Repeat every season!)

Give yourself some space to envision the season of light ahead.

* bring a journal and any props you own *

$35 - Registration opening soon.

May 31 – June 3, 2019 || Deepening Awareness: Four Day Silent Retreat || Krishnamurti / Swanwick Centre, Vancouver Island

“Retreat is not set apart from life, but is a deep plunge into the nature of existence” - Adyashanti

At a certain point in life, there is a stirring within to stop running and to dive deep into all that we are. Something calls us to connect to our center and witness our capacity for wisdom, stillness and openness.  Even the slightest curiosity towards transformation through silence should not be ignored. More than ever, our world needs more beings that are clear, aware and connected to deep presence. More than ever our taxed nervous systems and depleted adrenals need to be filled by simply turning the focus within, and listening for all the insights.

Join Carolyn for this unique 4-day opportunity to press pause on the noise of daily life and wake up to the workings of the mind, heart and body. On retreat, we will engage in restorative & hatha yoga, seated & walking meditations, journalling & self-inquiry, and many periods of noble silence. Our time together will also include feeding the body with wholesome vegetarian meals and feeding the mind with daily lectures related to un-learning our conditioned beliefs with gentleness. Gift yourself with any extra rest or nature time you deem necessary…

Location:

Our home for the weekend will be at the oceanfront Swanwick Centre (Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Cda) near Victoria, BC. This beautiful property is just a 40 minute drive from the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal on Vancouver Island. More on the property HERE.
