Yin - To Uplift Our Spirits for the Winter Ahead
December 16, 7:45pm | Richmond Olympic Oval | Christa Norgren
Come enjoy a candlelit yin class as we transition from Fall, described as light, airy and responsible for movement, into Winter, which is typically described as cold, wet, heavy, dormant and sustaining. Winter, though dormant, prepares us for Spring and can be a great time to plan and assist us in setting goals for the upcoming year, however, it is common to experience bouts of depression because of its dark and earthy qualities. With a tailored approach to asana we will use poses to keep our energy and mood up while using Winter’s sustaining qualities to help us ground and focus. Come learn, move and release with a practice that will leave you feeling positive.
Winter Solstice - YHot Expand
December 21, 12:15pm | Queen Street West | Mark Bezpieczny
In yoga, and in astrology, the sun symbolizes the soul. The word “solstice,” in Latin, means sun standing still, so in a sense, we could say the soul stands still on the solstice—maybe even long enough for you to catch a glimpse of it, as some legends say you can at this divine time of year. Join Mark for a special 90 min YHot class, assisted by Tori Lovegrove, where we welcome in the Winter Solstice. Join us in our tea lounge post yoga bliss for hot chocolate before enjoying the rest of your weekend.
