Begin with a practice to balance and cultivate your life energy, or qi, with an introduction to the Chinese discipline of Qigong. After this movement and breath based practice we’ll get comfortable and dive deep into a restorative Yoga Nidra practice. Often referred to as “yogic sleep” this practice allows for greater receptivity and can help release muscular, emotional, and mental tension.
Teacher for this event
Jonathan’s practice began as physical and transformed as he discovered there was more to yoga than down-dog. He found yoga 10 years ago while he was working overseas, and it has kept him grounded and inspired as he slowly made his way back to Toronto! Jonathan focuses on how yoga can improve functional movement, the importance of alignment and stability, and how to keep your body safe while practicing. He often challenges his students to rethink each pose and their practice so that it better serves themselves. In his class you can expect to be given the tools to take ownership of your practice and to have a few laughs along the way.
Queenie’s practice is something that reminds her how powerful the body can be. She has practiced for over 10 years all over the world. Learning from teachers with different points of view has helped her to create a practice that has developed her own unique outlook on yoga. Queenie’s favourite classes to teach are generally faster-paced, vinyasa-power style, where she will encourage you to marry your breath to the movement of the body. She uses each class to teach both fundamental postures and techniques while at the same time introducing interesting new flows and target postures. Expect to be asked to smile while in her classes, and to sweat.
