Classes

Mindful Movement Classes

Many of us spend a good part of the day in a state of overstimulation arising from the effects of a 24-hour news cycle and the stress of daily living. The toxic effects of an unending barrage of alarming headlines about the state of our planet reside in our bodies and minds, but we are mostly unconscious to them. Somatic movement is a healing practice that restores our nervous system to its natural state by inviting us to slow down and explore our inner landscape. Our internal explorations gradually make us aware of unconscious holding patterns that may have contributed to chronic injury or pain. Somatic movement presents us with opportunities to build new neural pathways so that we can move with greater ease and efficiency. As we become more practiced in the somatic approach, we begin to develop growing self-awareness in our daily lives, the first step towards regaining control of our lives and making different – and conscious choices. This is the somatic way.

Alex's Gentle Hatha Classes 

These classes, taught by Alex, are slow paced and deeply relaxing. The postures range from simple to complex, with full permission to do less. The emphasis is on breath and body awareness. We learn to listen to our body in a new way, honour its limitations and learn from it. Even though the approach is gentle, we will stretch and strengthen, and work toward improved flexibility and balance, mental clarity and emotional state of peace.

Israeli Folk Dancing

Israeli circle dances are a great workout and a wonderful way to work on balance and coordination. No previous dance experience necessary. Beginners: 6:15 to 7:15pm; Everybody: 6:45 - 7:15 pm; Advanced instruction: 7:15pm to 8:00pm.

Lynn's Restorative Yoga Classes

Lynn offers a deeply relaxing practice where students move through several different poses supported by props such as bolsters and blankets.  Poses are held for longer periods of time allowing students to rest deeply, release tension and restore balance to the nervous system.  When we are deeply relaxed and balanced not only does our immune system get a big boost but our body’s natural healing abilities are able to work much more effectively.

Our Gifted Teachers

Wendy Schneider, BA, BEd, RYT

Wendy Schneider has been a student of yoga since the early 1990s and a teacher since 2003. A former student of Iyengar and Anusara yoga, Wendy is a multi-modality movement educator, who sees movement a powerful medicine that is restorative and stimulating to health and well-being. Wendy is committed to helping her students improve their quality of life by overcoming body/mind challenges related to unconscious holding patterns and by accessing their bodies' innate ability to move with ease and fluidity.  Wendy encourages her students to be leaders in their own change process by investing in their own self care through movement and mindfulness. 

Lynn Mighton

Lynn was drawn to yoga over twenty years ago and, since then, has practiced with a range of teachers both in Canada and the UK. Inspired to study yoga more deeply, Lynn embarked on her Teacher Training with Alex Bovkis of Shanti Yoga in Hamilton. This journey proved transformational. She continued her studies with Alex and has recently (July 2016) graduated from Advanced Teacher Training. She is now qualified as a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 level. It is this experience along with learnings as a Reiki Master and Reiki Drumming Certification that Lynn brings to Wendy’s Yoga Studio as a teacher. Empowered by the healing and transformative power of yoga, her classes are infused with breath and subtle energy awareness. Students are invited to join Lynn and explore yoga in a way that allows them to honour themselves and where they are at in their practice.

Janet Steeves

I’ve had the privilege of studying with teachers that have supported and continue to inspire my yoga journey. In 2018, I was introduced to the field of somatic movement and in January 2019, I enrolled in a course called Intelligent Motion Training, offered by Kaila June, a movement science and somatic educator. This program offers a client-centered approach to movement education that helps people become their own change agents in shifting holding patterns that are keeping them from moving and feeling well. The training and support that I've received from the somatic community has enhanced my personal practice and influences the way I teach. For me, teaching is about bringing people together on common ground and helping them get in touch with who they inherently are. I offer a movement practice that opens students to the process of moving with awareness. My wish is for my students to discover an innate ability to generate energy from within and direct it in ways that deepen their connection to themselves and feel more confident, physically grounded and emotionally steady.
