Iyengar Yoga Workshop: Loosen Up Indoors-Outdoors

YOGA STUDIO -170626-2048x1060 1If you’ve ever had a massage and come out feeling light-limbed, as if you were walking on air, you’ll appreciate the experience of loosening up the body. Creating space in the joints, finding suppleness in those parts of the body we are always bending – knees, elbows, arms, hips. This workshop, both indoors and outdoors (weather permitting), will focus on stretching the body using simple props and working on easy poses. The workshop is suitable for beginners and those with experience.

Date: Thursday, July 27

Time: 5-7:15pm

Place: 238 Park Drive, Ganges

Cost: $40

RSVP: jayne@hedgerowhouse.ca / Tel: (250) 538-1716

Iyengar Workshop on Feet: Thurs, June 1 from 5:00pm-7:15pm

Feet, feet, feet! We expect them to hold us up day after day, and rarely give them a thought. Then we discover fallen arches, plantar fasciitis, calcanealIMG_1894a spurs, bunions, and other uncomfortable conditions. In this workshop we will focus on foot health, from foot massage to some nifty foot exercises, and how to build from the feet up in our poses.

Please join me on Thursday, June 1 from 5:00-7:15pm with a short break for herbal tea at:

Yoga In Salt Spring, 238 Park Drive, Ganges, V8K 2R6  Tel: (250) 538-1716.

Payment by cheque or cash can be dropped off in advance, or call with a credit card to secure a spot. It is a small studio, so do plan in advance to be sure you have a space.

See you soon!

Workshop for Gardeners: Earth Day – Saturday, April 22

This is for all you gardeners who love to feel the earth in your hands, creating, planting, growing, digging, and working the land. Weeding can be hard on your lower back; your hands may grip the tools too firmly; you jar your shoulders as you dig the shovel in; your hips may stiffen with continual bending down. And how is your balance? Your strength? Flexibility?

Luckily Iyengar yoga has the recipe for gardeners, with hip openers, shoulder mobility work, hand stretches and of course, hanging upside down.

Please join me on Earth Day 2017, Saturday April 22nd, from 4:00-6:15pm for an Iyengar Yoga Gardeners’ Workshop, with a break for herbal tea and dried fruit mid-session.

Cost: $40.00. Please call (250) 538-1716 to confirm your spot with a credit card, or drop in the cash/cheque to 238 Park Drive, Ganges.

Any questions, send me an email at Jayne@hedgerowhouse.ca. I look forward to seeing you on the mat!

Teaching Yoga in Bali

We travelled to Bali in November while Yoga In Salt Spring was closed. Jayne spent several weeks teaching yoga at the Gaia Oasis foundation, as well as at an elementary school and an orphanage. It is heart-warming to teach young children with their playfulness and enthusiasm for every pose, as well as their ability to lie completely still dsc_6492 dsc_6483in Savasana for 10 minutes without stirring. They were a delight to teach.
