We are asking for a donation of $10 (or more) and the proceeds will go to The Haven’s Come Alive (www.thehaven.com) bursary program. Please let us know if you plan on attending, and if the interest is very high we may need to find a bigger venue or offer 2 back-to-back classes. Leanne is honoured to help celebrate the beautiful life of this woman whose life was tragically cut too short.

Nava Yoga is very excited to be hosting the Ottawa-based music group The Bhakti Connection next week on September 10th. The group’s musical background brings together a variety of styles to create a vibration and energy that is truly unique and healing. Kirtan is a devotional chanting meditation, with roots going back far into ancient history. It is a form of Bhakti yoga (devotional yoga) and reaches deeply into the spiritual heart.

More information can be found at their website http://bhakticonnection.ca/.

Additionally, contact Greg at (506) 940 0965 for more information about the show.


Nava Yoga will be hosting an open house from 7–9pm Saturday, February 20th. It is a free event for the community.
The night will include a short video lecture by the American spiritual teacher Adhyshanti, a guided meditation, a demonstration of the benefits of restorative yoga with Julie, and a drumming circle led by Dawne and Wallie Simieritsch (please bring your own drums if you have some!).
We hope to see you then.

Jan 2nd, from 3:30- 4:45. It will be a ‘pay what you can’ class, and because space is limited it would be nice to know who is coming (llaracey@gmail.com)

Conscious Communication

Join us as we discuss and explore Marshall Rosenberg’s Non-Violent Communication, as detailed in his book: Non-Violent Communication; A Language of Life. You do not need to have read to book to join in these sessions. Some of the topics that we will discuss include: communication that blocks compassion, observing without evaluating, identifying and expressing feelings, making requests, receiving empathically, and expressing anger and appreciation. We will encourage engagement with the material by employing thought-provoking and heart-opening exercises, and sharing insights with one another. Please feel free to drop-in to any of the meetings. You do not need to commit to the whole 7 weeks. We welcome people to share in the role of facilitation, but it is not expected. All ages welcome. No charge, but donations to the studio welcomed! 

Yin Yoga- A Path to Body Awareness

With Kelley Consolvo

Sunday, March 23rd, 1pm-3pm at Nava Yoga in Sackville

Yin Yoga helps you slow down long enough to notice how your body is feeling. By connecting to your breath, the body becomes more self-aware and sends vital energy where it is needed. In this workshop you will learn about the meridians (energy lines) of the kidneys, heart and lungs. You will also practice poses that clear energetic pathways for these essential organs to function their best!

This is a by-donation class. To reserve your spot, please write to Leanne at llaracey@gmail.com.

Kelley Consolvo is a certified yoga teacher who trained at the Amana Institute for hatha yoga and at Satori in Fredericton where she completed her yin yoga teacher training. She has been teaching since 2010.
