Yoga isn’t just about flexibility. If we open ourselves to it, yoga can allow us to go deeper within ourselves to find harmony and balance within our lives. Whether you are a new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, join Makayla Walerickton for a four-week karma-yoga series to be held on Saturdays from 4-5pm, beginning on October 16th and running until December 7th. Each class will have a different focus that will allow you to explore yoga in different ways. Classes are by-donation, with all proceeds going to the Tantramar Family Resource Centre. While you are welcome to drop in to individual classes, you are encouraged to register to secure a place in each class. You can register by e-mailing Leanne at llaracey(at)gmail.com
Week 1: Fundamentals- This class will introduce some of the fundamentals of a yoga asana (postures) practice. Focus will be on uniting the breath and the body, alignment principles, and exploring the postures that will form the foundation of next three classes.
Week 2: Balancing Flow – Synchronize movement and breath to find balance as you are guided through this gentle flow intended to detoxify, refresh, and realign.
Week 3: Back-bending and heart-opening – In this heating and opening class, you will be guided through a series of hip, chest, and shoulder opening postures that will allow you to safely explore a series of backbends. Backbends open your heart while bringing movement into your spine and back, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Week 4: Invigorating Vinyasa – In this challenging vinyasa class, emphasis will be on the synergy between breath and movement. Expect to be moving throughout the class with some poses held longer with the intention of strengthening and deepening your practice.
Join us Thursday and Friday mornings from 8:00- 9:00am for heated vinyasa. The class won’t be as hot and humid as what you would find in a hot yoga studio, but it will be nice and toasty as the weather starts to get cooler. For more details on vinyasa, please see the “classes” page for a description. This will be a 9-week registered series and the cost is $100 or 9 punches of any card. Depending on student numbers, there may be limited space available for drop-ins.
The Thursday class will run from October 17th to December 12th and the Friday class will run October 18th until December 20th, (with the exclusion of November 1st, for the sake of anyone who plans to go out Halloween night.)
To register, please contact me via e-mail, phone (233-YOGA), or at the studio.

Core and Back This is a slower moving class that focuses on holding postures. During this class students will use a series of asanas (yoga postures), as well as bandhas (energy locks) to help build muscles in the lumbar (lower back), pelvis and abdominal regions. Building these muscles will promote correct posture and spinal alignment, and can also prevent and relieve lower back pain. This class will also include some intermediate-level asanas, as well as deep stretching, particularly in chronically tight areas for people such as the hips and hip flexors.
Tuesday Classes- Enjoy 16 classes for $150 (Save $42!!!) Classes run Sept. 3rd- Dec 17th.
Sunday Classes- Enjoy 13 classes for $130 (Save 26!!!) Classes run Sept. 8th – Dec. 15th and exclude the Sundays of Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day long weekends.
Deep Stretch This class is designed to help students release chronically tight areas of the body. We work on stretching tight muscles such as the back, hamstrings and hip flexors by practicing particular yang-style postures, as well as opening and releasing connective tissues in areas such as the hips and pelvis with yin-style postures. The stretching that you’ll do in this practice contribute to better posture, circulation, and even releases endorphins, leaving you feeling calm, limber and rejuvenated! This class is for everybody, but is highly recommended for runners, athletes or those who suffer from limited flexibility. Enjoy 15 classes for $150 (Save $30!!!) Classes run Sept 5th- Dec 19th (excludes Halloween.)
