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 RYT200 and Deanne Matthews, RYT240.
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 their bodies as well.
Because of the amount of interest for a yoga practice that increases strength in the body and allows for restoration all while providing the space needed for connection in all realms; ease of mind, body, heart and soul – we are now offering 4 different time slots for you to pre-register (6 week sessions), and one make-up time slot for missed classes (time TBD)
FOUNDATIONS: Becoming Curious About the Messages of Your Body
This class will provide the foundation for connecting to your body, awakening to its cues, both physically and emotionally as you integrate breath, body and mind to gain strength and find rest. This class will be offered Tuesday nights from 7:30 – 8:45 pm starting April 4th and Friday mornings from 10:30-11:45 am starting March 31st. ($90)
EXPANSIONS: Connecting With and Extending Compassion to the Messages of Your Body
This class, now in it’s second run, building on FOUNDATIONS, will create opportunity for participants to listen to and understand the messages of their body as they continue to strengthen their body balanced with restoration. If you have taken the Foundations class and would like to expand your practice, this might be for you. Contact me with your questions. This class will be offered Tuesday evenings from 6:00 – 7:15 pm starting April 4th. ($90)
TRAUMA-SENSITIVE: Becoming Curious about Having a Body
This class, new to Re.Pose and new to many yogi’s is intended to endeavour to create a safe place to allow ease and choice as your guide as you listen to your body. This class is a shorter class, intended as an introduction to the many benefits of movement with breath, as well as connection of mind and body. This is a smaller class and there will be no touch. This class will be offered on Friday mornings from 9:30 – 10:15 am starting March 31st. ($75)
