PAST EVENTS


Silent Yoga & Meditation Retreat
May 11 – 18, 2018
Sugar Ridge Retreat Centre, Wyebridge, ON

Facilitated by: Toni Gordon, Registered Psychotherapist, Ayurvedic Counsellor, Yoga and Meditation Teacher and Natalie Pearson-Workman, Yoga and Meditation Teacher

In our silence we will invoke the energies of renewal and rebirth as we experience spring in forested trails. Maybe find inspiration in the freshness and newness of the season, and ride the waves of peace that the woods have to offer. We sit in our own silence, within sacred community, among others of like mind and intention. In the group we are silently encouraging each other forward in our healing and evolution.

Through extended time in silence we not only let the noise of our busy lives fall away, but we soon experience the quieting our mental chatter. As we begin to find moments of stillness, we are able to get behind the stories and agendas of the fearful mind that we unwittingly follow, providing insight, choice and even release.

Toni will offer daily contemplations and reflections to help guide you on your journey inward. When we sit in meditative spaces, our intuitive self takes inspirational words and ideas to the next level, finding and feeling the depth of universal wisdoms.

I will be leading you through your Hatha postures and breath work during the day, facilitating a practice that will assist in circulating the energies and releasing the tensions of the body. In the evening, gentle Yin, Restorative asanas, and Yoga Nidra will continue to direct you towards surrender. All practices assist in calming the sympathetic nervous system allowing our being to process and let go.

As the mind releases, the body releases, and tensions and stressors, narratives and histories that we hold in our body are often allowed to fall away. Allow the quiet and the routine to take you to new places or to just get deeper into Self.

This will be a technology free experience. Please leave the location and phone number of Sugar Ridge with a contact person in case of an emergency.

Improve your sleep with Yoga Nidra
Friday, May 25th, 2018 from: 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Yoga Truly, Grimsby ON

We all know the value of sleeping well, and we’ve all experienced the feeling of being refreshed after a good night’s sleep – and the feeling of fatigue after a poor night’s sleep. But even though we know this, in our busy society, many of us are not getting the quality sleep needed to truly receive the health benefits of sleep. Our sleep cycle is an important time for healing and rejuvenation.
During this experiential session you will:
 – Discover the deeply restful and rejuvenating practice of Yoga Nidra
 – Learn techniques and breathing exercises to help get a good night sleep
 – Feel more relaxed and refreshed
