Tues Sept 17 & 24 6 - 7:15pm || Transform Anxiety: A Meditation Series || Stretch Yoga in Chinatown


Anxiety is slowly beginning to impact the health of the masses, who avoid taking time to pause and look within. This 2-part mindfulness series was designed by Carolyn to identify and cope with stress through breathwork and guided meditations. You can expect to learn about: anxiety, how it has helped you and impeded you,  various styles of calming breathwork and meditations to shift the conditioned narrative within.

You will leave feeling grounded in a deeper understanding of how to create clarity within your spinning thoughts and how to evoke gentleness towards your habitual and tendencies. 

All levels welcome.  There will be opportunities for questions. Seated and reclined meditations and breathing exercises will be practiced.

$50 for both evenings. Held in the community space at Stretch (Pender & Main)

Carolyn has been teaching meditation workshops, weekly intensives, silent retreats, one-on-ones and all types of corporate sessions for over 7 years. She has studied with Adyashanti, Reggie Ray and Tara Brach: some of the most influential teachers in the West today (of the Buddhist Vipassana Movement & Zen).

  • uncovering your own healing process, the nature of your own ego & mind.

  • how to teach various types of meditation (from beginner to advanced), how to present potent questions (ie themes).

  • fundamentals for the teacher (trust, space, personal practice, no expectations), teaching from a place of authenticity/embodying presence, holding space for all the good and bad moments during class.

  • hands-on experience with practice-teaching to the group

  • learning through additional class observation and assignments

* must be an instructor or have been practicing yoga/meditation for 2 years.
