Events Calendar – Yoga Chilliwack
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.

What is a 30 Day Yoga Challenge?
Besides being just that; ‘a challenge’, the foundation of a 30 day yoga challenge is honest commitment to ones’ self. it is an opportunity to develop and refine a healthy habit. Habits are born of sankalpa (intention) that is anchored in love and respect. You can learn so much about yourself through practicing yoga, and by committing to a challenge of uninterrupted practice with the utmost sincerity, honesty and respect you will not only learn, but grow.
This is a personal challenge and journey. We understand life happens which may make it difficult to complete 30 consecutive days of yoga, So you may commit to 6 days of yoga per week and opt to double up on some days to complete all 30 classes.

The practice of Kundalini Yoga precisely and consciously combines breath, mudra, eye-focus, mantra, meditation and postures to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, evoke creativity and purify the blood. Kundalini Yoga has the ability to bring balance to the body, mind and soul.

In the Northern Hemisphere we honour the longest night of the year as Winter Solstice, a time to tune into the magic and beauty of the changing season, and welcome back the slow blooming daylight. As the cold and dark dormancy of the Winter offers a time for deep reflection and self care, so too the spirit of Solstice offers a time of rebirth and renewal, as we begin our spiral back towards the Sun. On this occasion we’re invited to dive deeply into ourselves, and observe what is calling our loving attention. What aspects of ourselves are being revealed by the shadows? What truths are beckoning to be birthed into the light of the new year?In this 2hr workshop, you’ll join sacred sisters Nicole and Ananda, as they guide a nourishing evening of ritual, meditation and movement medicine, to support a mindful transition into this new seasonal cycle.
We look forward to sharing:
* The significance of Winter Solstice and Yule
* Lunar influences and reflections on the Full Moon in Cancer
* A gentle and warming yoga practice
* Guided ritual for inner reflection and renewed intentions
* Tools and best practices for self care and soul nourishment over the holiday season
With awareness, we can celebrate this festive time with grace and ease!
Early Bird $25 until Dec 1 $35 thereafter
