Classes take place at: Collective Soul Space
Lower Level, Scotia Centre
On this day of Remembrance, let us take time to be still. Honour the memory of those who gave their lives so that we may have the freedom to live long and comfortable lives. In this two-hour session, experience the bliss of release of deeply-seated stress and tension, and the healing sound vibration of the gong.
Restorative Yoga makes use of props like bolsters, blocks, straps and blankets to support the body so that you have no work to do except to relax! Postures are held for a lengthier period of time (some up to twenty minutes) as you are encouraged to soften into the support and into the stillness. The nervous system is given a chance to cue the Relaxation Response to release deeply held stress.
The gong is an ancient instrument that has been used in many rituals and ceremonies but also for healing. In the last twenty minutes of class, you’ll find a comfortable posture to allow the waves of sound vibration to wash over you. Sound heals. Your trillions of cells will begin to vibrate at a higher frequency, so it’s helpful to set a healing intention for the practice.
This is a popular offering that tends to fill up. If you’re interested in participating, don’t delay! No previous experience is required. Please wear layers to class and bring a blanket.
There are many options for payment! Cost is $30, with a nominal service fee if registering online.
