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 RYT240 and Deanne Matthews, RYT240.
We are welcoming a new teacher , Deanne Matthews. Deanne has been a friend of Re.Pose since it began , practicing yoga here and then completing her Yoga Teacher Training in Vancouver last fall, as well as Trauma-Sensitive Yoga training this spring. She started her own personal practice 2 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.
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 ), plus two drop in time slots on the weekends. There will be one make-up time slot for missed pre-registered classes. ( 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 and Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm 8:45pm starting September 12th/13th and Friday Mornings 10:30am-11:45am starting September 15th. ($90)
EXPANSIONS: Connecting With and Extending Compassionto 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.

YOGA for EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE and WELL-BEING: 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 will be a smaller class. This class will be offered on Friday mornings from 9:00am-10:00am starting Friday, September 15th. ( $75 ).
