Philosophy & Meditation: In-Depth Study (YTT)

Yoga is more than just a sweaty physical practice in a hot room. There is ancient knowledge behind it that is thousands of years old. In these sessions we learn where and how yoga started and came to the west. We are introduced to the yamas and niyamas through the ancient texts (guidelines to practice in everyday life, which can be challenging but can lead to inner freedom). And we will learn the different branches of yoga and the chakras (or energy centres) in the body. We will be guided through some meditation practices during these philosophical sessions.

  • Ask questions about what to expect during the birthing process and postpartum.

 

What previous participants said about the workshop:
"My husband and I really enjoyed it. We have been preparing ourselves for the delivery and had attended previously to a prenatal class. This workshop helped us a lot to organize all the previous thoughts and activities we wanted to do while in labour. It was great the way you put it in the different sections according to the stage of labour. That was fantastic! Thanks again." ~ Sandra


"I enjoyed helping Kristen with your yoga instructions for the prenatal classes last Saturday ……..I said to my husband when I got home if only they had those classes when we had our children…….I feel quite confident that they will enable me to help Kristen more with her labor after attending them or as a matter of fact any other couple preparing them for childbirth…..you make them very informative and let them know things that can and can not happen which is good because birthing for each person is so different……..I just want to wish you all the success in these classes or any other endeavor you take upon yourself when the time is right……you are a very soothing individual and it shows through in your classes…..again thanks and good luck." ~ Chris Nelson

This fascinating ancient system (it is believed to be over 5,000 years old) offers wisdom to help us stay healthy and/or to regain health and prevent illnesses by finding our inner balance with the external world. It does this by providing us guidelines for our everyday life, our diet, and how to find balance while going through seasonal changes and other life changes. It allows us to observe our interaction with the body, mind, spirit and with the world around us – internally, externally, emotionally and spiritually. It gives us an understanding of who we are and how we are a part of a great whole.
