Full moon sound meditation & gentle yoga

Our sound meditations are shaped around the full moon cycles, Equinoxes & Solstices. We gather to breathe, connect, reflect & be together as we navigate our way through these times.

 

Sound meditation brings us into states of calm and ease. The intent for a sound bath meditation is to use the frequency of sound to align our own energetic vibration into a balanced calm state. 

 

Through crystal bowls, wind chimes and several other instruments your nervous system will be lulled into receptivity & alignment.

 

Simple, restful & gentle yoga postures will aid in deepening the connection to sacred idleness & rest.

Sacred Living Practice - crystal medicine, sound therapy, movement alchemy

Sacred Living Practice - crystal medicine, sound therapy, movement alchemy

The first workshop in a new series. Please join Sacred Living practitioners Wendy Martin, Trixie Freebird and Sheryle Blasko for this empowering workshop designed to help shape Sacred Living practices for an authentic life. 
Sacred Living topics include -
—————
• MOVEMENT & YOGA ALCHEMY • 
—————
Movement moves energy and connects us with our primal understanding of where we are holding, where we can let go and in what ways we love to move. Yoga teaches us how our body can best serve our mind and how both our bodies and mind can serve the highest purpose of the soul. 
—————
• SOUND THERAPY •
—————
Sound therapy can bring us into states of calm through frequency and vibration. Our systems can run on overdrive with the buzz of the external sounds of life. The intent for a sound bath is to use the frequency of the pure pitch of crystal bowls to bring our own energetic vibration into balanced alignment. 
—————
• CRYSTAL MEDICINE •
—————-
Crystals carry independent frequencies that can cleanse, clear and charge a space. When placed together with intention, known as gridding, their impact is amplified. Crystal medicine offers both a beautiful visual affirmation while simultaneously holding a powerful vibration to support our desired outcomes.
——————————————————-
——————————————————-
This workshop is designed for you to experience the synergies of these sacred modalities. 
——————————————————-
• Investment - $65 - each participant will receive their own crystal grid starter kit

Muskoka Yoga Festival

Muskoka Yoga Festival

This workshop is designed to use the body as a way to understand the deeper layers of ourselves by connecting with the subtle energies of the elements within us.

The “Vayus” are the experience of energy rising within us. We will work with the Chakra (energy center) and the Vayu associated with each element as a way for us to understand the body physically, energetically and spiritually. Using the body as a way for us to understand the various layers of ourselves.

WATER YOGA SEQUENCES connect us to our internal creativity and fluidity. Water acts as both a carrier and an agent for change. Water movement practices create the connective flow between breath and movement. Circular, undulating, twisting and rhythmic movement patterns connect us to our own creative expression that brings harmony and balance to our life energy.

FIRE YOGA SEQUENCES create deep focus, clarity, courage, inner power, vitality and strength. Fire is the energy of purification, transformation and change. Twisting postures invigorate, purify and tone the core. Coiling energy and core cultivation is necessary to support and stabilize. The merging of WATER and FIRE energy manifests as spontaneity, balance, stability, strength and harmony which naturally brings quietness and balance to our minds and emotions.

IGNITE. EMPOWER. CREATE. FLOW. FOCUS. HARMONIZE. LIBERATE. ASSIMILATE.

Harnessing the Wind... A yoga practice with Allie Chisholm-Smith and Wendy Martin

Harnessing the Wind

Weaving Ayurvedic understanding of the elements and in particular the vayus or the wind, we will guide a practice with the intention of right action in the face of disturbance.  Explore the balance between mobilization (creative and fluid) and stabilization (grounding and strength).  Through our Yoga, we can learn to harness to the wind to our advantage and lower the sails when we need to retreat and build reserves back up.  This is an excellent workshop for teachers who want to expand their knowledge of Ayurveda and the vayus specifically.

Dancing Warrior Series @ Muskoka Yoga Festival

Dancing warrior” is a sequence melding the classical warrior poses with creative versions and adaptations. We are all seeking to be warriors of the heart with Ahimsa (non-violence ) at the center of us ; what does it mean to be a warrior of the heart? How can we step out into the world with an unshakable presence of integrity and truth? As we dance through this life we are reminded to be fluid and yielding like water to all obstacles on the path, and grounded and steadfast in the conviction spoken through the heart, like a true warrior on the path towards peace.
