Yoga At Re.Pose

Creating a Relationship with your Body

Whenever we take a deep, conscious breath, we experience yoga. One of the many definitions of yoga is “to yolk”, or to “connect”. The yoga offered at Re.Pose is intended to guide you in a calling to return or “connect” with your own body’s intuitive intelligence and wisdom. Practicing yoga gives opportunity for reconnection with sensations of pleasure and/or discomfort as you participate in your own healing of body, heart, mind and soul. It is a pathway to find safety and strength in our bodies – to befriend our body and use it as a resource. While offering a safe space to gain a firm foundation of strength through key poses, each class also offers generous space for nourishing restoration to allow for an integrative practice.

The yoga classes at Re.Pose are taught by Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT). Classes are currently being taught by Carolyn Goossen E-RYT240 and Deanne Matthews, RYT240.

Deanne has been a friend of Re.Pose since it began , practicing yoga here and then completing her Yoga Teacher Training in Vancouver in 2016, as well as Trauma-Sensitive Yoga training in 2017. She started her yoga-therapy-1own personal practice 3 years ago and was awakened to the way in which it helped her to become more grounded and feel more trust within herself and her body. Deanne believes that yoga truly is therapeutic for the mind, body and soul.   So she is very thrilled to be able to share the yoga space with others and offer a class in which participants can find their own journey on their mat .  Deanne will be teaching classes on Wednesday evenings as well as offering drop-in classes on the weekends.





Carolyn’s yoga journey stems from a longing for a deeper connection to her own body.

While healing from a traumatic brain injury,  the practice of yoga has helped Carolyn strengthen her body, heart, mind and soul. It has  further instilled a passion to create a safe space for others to strengthen and repair the “whole” of the their bodies.
