This one hour class is designed for those with MS who are either independently mobile or who require the use of a wheelchair. The aim of the class is to improve core strength, balance and posture through both seated and standing poses. Participants may choose to do poses on a mat, seated on a chair or a combination of both. Gentle stretching, seated twists and moving joints through safe range of motion aim to keep the body limber and maintain functional abilities. A focus on expanding and calming breath encourages participants to maintain good body alignment as they move through the yoga poses. There is a guided full body relaxation at the end of each class.
Instructor: Mari Newell (Mari is an RN with experience working with people with MS)

He was a member of a joint Queens University/Royal Military College of Canada study team that studied the effects that yoga may have on men and women recovering from exposure to operational trauma.

Our 19 day 200 hour yoga teacher training intensive is designed to prepare students to practice and teach a simple, effective alignment-based yoga sequence accessible to beginners and challenging enough for more advanced students.
Thai Yoga massage and manual therapy allow graduates to work effectively with private clients or in a public class setting.
We focus on simple poses taught with clarity and a deep understanding of healthy biomechanics, as well as an introduction to restorative and yin yoga. Alignment-based yoga simply means “actually doing the pose”.
Certification with Open Source Yoga is based on illustrating competency in teaching the 40 minute Fundamentals sequence, and a written exam.
The training is registered with Yoga Alliance.

About Daniel Clement
I have trained over 950 teachers since 2007 in China, Japan and British Columbia. I’ve enjoyed physical yoga practice and teaching since the 1990‘s, and owned and operated both a home yoga studio and a larger commercial studio. In 2006 I wrote the course manual “Teaching Hatha Yoga” that is used by many studios as a foundation for their teacher trainings, and in 2016 wrote “Knead Yoga” – the course manual for private client work. Early in 2017 I completed “Open Source Yoga – Practice and Teaching” – the new manual for the 200hr course, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of offering teacher training.
My approach to yoga is evidence-based. Yoga practice can be adapted to the individual, and is best taught clearly and simply. I approach life and philosophy from a non-theistic viewpoint. Yoga to me holds the potential for increased sensitivity and appreciation for what is, right here in the lives we are living.
