Mudras & Holistic Hand Reflexology
Saturday, November 14th
2:30pm - 4:30pm

How much can be revealed from and healed with our hands? After this class, you will never consider your hands the same way.

In our everyday life, we perform many actions with our hands, most of them unconsciously. We open a door, lift a cup, turn the water tap, switch on the car, and brush our teeth, without even thinking about how we move our hands.

Mudras, is the yoga of the hands. Christelle will teach you some specific movements and positions for your hands to activate meridians, or lines of energy. Once activated, these meridians can release headache, or back pain; also they can help you to let go of stress, activate your vital energy and many more purposes.
Our hands reveal much information about our health and our life's path. Christelle will also describe how our physical body is reflected in our hands and how we can auto-massage specific areas to release tensions. Additionally, we will observe the 3 main lines: Life, Love and Mind.

Pricing: $25 in advance / $30 at the door

Upcoming Yoga Events

Chocolate Yoga with DeAnna
Saturday, November 21st
7pm - 9pm

When we find balance in the senses we can connect to our Divine source as we feel appreciation for the gift of embodiment. What better way to delight the senses and the Divine than with chocolate? It was even considered ‘food of the Gods’ by the ancient Mayans and thought to bring universal wisdom and knowledge, just like Yoga! Come out for a deliciously rockin’ Anusara-Inspired Vinyasa Yoga practice as we savour the chocolate on our tongue before and after class and play delightfully with chocolate metaphors while we rock out to a practice with music for the ears to enjoy.

$25 in advance / $30 at the door.

Thanksgiving Day Skanda Yoga with Jason

The aim of Skanda Yoga is to transform the individual, the community and the world.
