A big thank you to all my students, those who’ve come to class faithfully throughout the spring and summer season, and to those who’ve been able to drop in to classes or attend workshops at YogaInSaltSpring. The yoga studio is now closed and our studio and B&B is getting ready to taking a break! I will be travelling to far flung places this fall and winter, to study with Iyengar teachers in cities as far away as London and Paris. I’ll be looking for fresh insights and new ways to practise that I can bring back to Salt Spring.
Wishing you all a nurturing time for mind and body over the winter, as we retreat to quieter pursuits ~ and some personal yoga practice.

Workshop: Saturday, August 18, 4pm-6:15pm. Restorative and Pranayama
Join me for a restorative workshop on Saturday. With the poor air quality currently due to fires, we will take it slow,and stretch and restore.
Restorative yoga helps you to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation with the aid of props (bolsters, bricks, blankets, chairs etc). The use of props makes it easier for you to maintain balance while you are stimulating and relaxing your body. With warm days and an active schedule, rest
orative yoga is the perfect counterbalance. And many of these poses you can practice at home with just a few props that you’ll have to hand.
Time 4pm-6:15pm (with a short break)
Cost: $40 – cheque, cash or credit card to hold your space (Jayne@hedgerowhouse.ca)
Level: all levels
Props: we have them all
What to bring: an empty stomach and your enthusiasm
See you soon in class – maybe on Saturday!

We hold yoga retreats each spring and fall at our studio, Yoga in Salt Spring, and the students get to stay at our beautiful B&B, Hedgerow House. We were recently featured in The Province for Workshop Getaways by Jane Mundy. We are walking distance to Ganges shops, restaurants and galleries, as well as beautiful forest and beach walks. At Hedgerow House we have three luxury bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom, one with a balcony, one with a garden patio, and another with a writing nook. Our three-course breakfasts are nutritious and created from local ingredients – many from our own garden. Our yoga studio is warm and cozy and well-equipped with all the props and mats you’ll need.

As the third session at Yoga in Salt Spring begins on June 5, I hope you will be joining me! With our ‘indoor-outdoor’ yoga studio, we can make the most of the warm weather by having one side of the room completely open to the garden.
Here is how my Iyengar yoga sessions will continue to look: Tuesday and Thursday classes will be six-week sessions, with a reduced rate to students who sign up for the six-weeks. As Iyengar yoga is progressive, we follow a curriculum to enable students to develop skills week by week, and to build upon the poses and methods learned in each class. If you sign up for a Tuesday or a Thursday class and have to miss a week, you can ‘make up’ by attending a Saturday class. Saturday classes are for drop-ins and making up classes.
- Tuesday from 5:00-6:30pm (90 mins) for Level I/II: cost $105 for 6 classes (or $20 per class)
- Thursday from 5:00-6:15pm (75 mins) for beginners / Level I: cost $95 (or $18 per class)
- Saturday from 5:00-6:15pm (75 mins) for all levels. Cost $18 per class. Saturdays will be a make-up or drop-in class, for all levels.
If you are not sure which class is best for you, please give me a call at (250) 538-1716, and we can talk this over.
Classes for the third session will begin on Tuesday, June 5th for six weeks.
Please register in advance by sending me an e-transfer (firstname.lastname@example.org), calling (250) 538-1716 with your credit card number or dropping in to Hedgerow House, 238 Park Drive, Ganges. We accept cash, cheque or credit card for payment. Please call me if cost is an issue for you.
Workshops: once again this year I plan to offer monthly themed workshops, so stay tuned for these 2-3 hour programs. If you have a request for a subject you would like to study in more depth, please let me know. You can always check the website for the up to date schedule and the latest announcements.
I’m very much looking forward to this summer session at Yoga in Salt Spring. See you on the mat!

Please join me for the last workshop in 2017: Poses for a Healthy Heart – Saturday, November 4th from 4pm-6:15pm
We all need to take care of our hearts, yet perhaps poor posture, anxiety, or our rout
ine activities are rounding our upper backs, and our hearts are sinking.
This workshop will help us to open our hearts, extend the front of the body, take the shoulders back, lengthen the spine, and help to reverse the pull of gravity. There will also be some ‘take away’ ideas for poses you can do at home with a simple set up.
Please join me on Saturday, November 4th from 4pm-6:15pm (an hour earlier than the usual class time) at Yoga in Salt Spring, 238 Park Drive, Ganges.
Please pre-register : you can email me at email@example.com, call (250) 538-1716 or send an e-transfer. I accept credit cards, cheques and cash.
Looking forward to seeing you then. Namaste!

The workshop will take place inside the SSIC building, although weather permitting, the group might venture outside for a few poses. Props and mats will be supplied, but feel free to bring your own mat.
