Gratitude & Grace: Restorative Workshop

With Brett Donlevy

Come and enjoy this restorative yoga workshop where we will relax deeply and explore the space within. Restorative yoga is based on the premise that you are enough and everything you need is already inside of you.

In this two hour session we will gently shed the layers of armour we normally cover up with and allow ourselves to rest and abide in our true nature.

All yoga equipment will be provided (including a yoga mat) but participants will be asked to bring a cozy blanket and an eye cover (eye pillow, sleep mask, soft washcloth etc.).

Attendees will be encouraged to dress comfortably and eat light prior to class.

This workshop is limited to 8 participants to ensure comfort, space and individual attention from your instructor.

Sign up early to save your spot. Registration is confirmed with payment.

Price: $40 plus tax, 

In-person: At Vangool Wellness new location! 3026 Taylor Street East.

Coming Home: An Introduction to Mindfulness

With Jennifer Keane coming Fall 2021!

We spend so much of our waking time on automatic pilot, “miles away”, “in another world”., not really present.  This 4-week introduction to mindfulness is an invitation to come home to be more aware of our breath, body sensations, thoughts and emotions, to what is happening right now.  An ever-growing body of research shows that mindfulness, paying attention with kindness and curiosity, is a very helpful life strategy that can benefit our heart, mind and body.  

Coming Home is designed especially for those who want to learn about mindfulness and how to develop a practice through guided meditation in class, support in establishing a home practice (including a recording and handouts), and opportunities to discuss how we can apply these practices in our life, our relationships, our work 

You will learn: 

  • What we mean by ‘mindfulness
  • How to learn and practice mindfulness 
  • The foundations of mindfulness- breath, body, emotions, and thinking
  • The benefits of mindfulness 
  • Resources and programs for supporting your mindfulness practice

Who should attend: 

  • Anyone interested in learning about mindfulness
  • Fee: $150 plus gst.
  • Sept 13th- Oct 4th, 7-8:30pm
