-What is Girlvana? Girlvana is designed to offer the benefits of yoga, mediation, real conversations, and mindfulness to teen girls, while providing mentorship with an authentic and heartfelt approach. The benefits of yoga are endless at every age. The practice of yoga and meditation allow for teen girls to root deeper into self discovery, stabilize moods, have a healthy approach towards physical fitness, and adopt a healthy body image, all the while in a safe and open environment.
-What can you expect from a Girlvana class? Interactive games, journaling, check-in questions, and guided meditation are all incorporated at the beginning and end of the class as a way to facilitate open, honest, real dialogue centred around issues many teen girls are facing today.
During the yoga and movement portion of a Girlvana class, you can expect an uplifting, flow based practice that provides a physical challenge but still targets the need to slow down, relax, and let go. Classes are light hearted and set to complimentary music, inviting girls to connect from a place of love and understanding. To cultivate a sense of community and “togetherness,” other activities like crafting, time in nature, and open conversations will also take place.

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.

A very special class all about nourishing community and connections. Join Erika and special guests Laura and Gary of The Road Trip Home. For a mixed levels yoga practice and live music to bring together and inspire. Followed by coffee and conversation.
We all have to start somewhere! This is a series designed especially for the beginner. Over the course of four consecutive Sundays, you will be taught the very basics of Hatha yoga and learn how to move in and out of postures safely and comfortably with confidence. No prior experience necessary.
Most of us are aware of the diverse benefits of yoga, but sometimes need a little push to get started! Alex’s intention is to help students gain confidence in their ability to practice the basics of Hatha yoga so that they feel comfortable attending public yoga classes, or incorporating yoga into their personal routine.
Alex will guide you through a well-rounded practice. This will begin with gentle breathing exercises (pranayama) to calm the mind, followed by careful and articulate instruction of physical postures (asana). There will be a variety of seated, standing, and balancing postures—and plenty of guidance and individual attention as we go. Finally, the class will end with a blissful guided relaxation (savasana). Each week we will review principles covered the week prior and build upon them.
Dates: May 6, 13, 20, 27
Time: 7:00-8:30 p.m. (90 Minutes)
