“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation.”
– Paul Theroux
Course runs November 23 – December 21, 2020 and costs $100 (plus HST). Full details below.
As the season’s change, the energy in our environment changes. And our own energy is meant to follow suit. In this 5-week series, we’ll flow through a yoga practice that becomes increasingly slow and still, like winter. Join me to work with your natural rhythms and welcome winter with ease. Emailed journal prompts and weekly meditations complement our movements and prepare you for this season of reflection and regeneration.
Who is this course for?
Anyone who wants support to embody a spirit of rest and relaxation going into the darker winter months. This practice will help shift your mindset from one of grieving summer’s end towards welcoming the quiet regenerative powers of winter.
Do I need to practice yoga regularly or be “flexible” to participate?
No! All abilities are welcome and encouraged to participate. Movements will be offered in different formats and with guidance on modifications and prop usage to ensure comfort and accessibility. I will also provide a list of common household items that can be used to support your practice. During registration and in each week’s feedback, you can identify any questions or concerns you have that can be addressed in the classes.
What can I expect each week?
Live online classes will be held using Zoom on Mondays from 7-8 p.m. EST. Each week you will receive a reminder with the link to join the class. Each yoga class will include approximately 45 minutes of movement (although this may mean holding individual poses for 5-10 minutes as we slow down), a brief meditation, and time for comments or questions. Following the live class, participants will receive an email with a link to download an audio meditation for the week, as well as journaling prompts related to the week’s theme.
If I can’t attend the live class will there be a recording available?
Yes, if for some reason you miss one of the live classes, a recording will be available to access for 24 hours afterwards. I do recommend that you attend live for full benefit of a routine practice and connecting as a community.
Will you or other participants see me during the live classes?
No, participants will not share their video in the live online classes. Using the Zoom Webinar platform, you will only see and hear the teacher’s video and audio during the practice. You will have the opportunity to submit questions or comments both before the live class and in the last minutes of the live class.
What is the course fee?
The course fee is CAD$100 + HST ($113 total) for five weekly live online yoga classes, five audio meditation downloads, and five guided worksheets. Payment must be confirmed through PayPal for registration to be complete. All fees are in Canadian dollars and are subject to change. All fees are subject to HST.
What is your refund policy?
Registration is non-transferrable. Cancellations will be refunded at 50% of the course fee up to 48 hours before the first online class, after which time refunds will not be offered. Participants agree that failure to attend classes or access online materials, changing their minds about the course, or not experiencing the results they desired, or experiencing any similar circumstances, do not entitle them to a refund.
