PWYC Park Yoga & Massage

I'm so excited to announce a wellness collaboration with friend and fellow hustler, Sonja of Zen Nomad. When we were Costa Rica this winter, we spent quite some time dreaming on the beach and in the river of ways we could work together. Here is the first of those dreams manifest.

This summer we'll be offering pay-what-you-can yoga & massage at Christie Pits Park. We'll also have a park-blanket-market of wellness wear, accessories and snacks that Sonja and I make.

WHY
We want to make finding bliss as accessible as possible

WHEN
Thursdays, July 17 - August 28
Yoga @ 7pm - 8pm

WHERE
Christie Pits Park
Just south of the soccer field on the east side of the park
( see map below )

HOW
To yoga, just show up 10 min before 7pm
To book a massage before yoga, email us:
Zen Shiatsu w/ Sonja - info@zennomad.ca
Thai Massage w/ Robin - royola@royola.ca


 

Meeting place is in the grassy zone below the soccer field.

Yoga for Yolanda

The good people of WovnBranch offered me a carte blanche opportunity to host an event with them at one of their retailers, The Detox Market.  Immediately I knew I wanted to host a Wandering Yoga class and have all the proceeds go to relief efforts in the Philippines.

So that's what's happening!

Come yoga for good vibes and join me for this special class.

Alexander Junior of DATU will be playing traditional Filipino gongs to set a collective heartbeat for the class.

All attendees will receive 15% off any purchases at the Detox Market on Dec 12 either before or after yoga.

Let's move our bodies and spread our good energy.

OM SHANTI SHANTI YO.

Anchor down to lift up.

I'm contemplating tattoos.

This past winter, when I was in Costa Rica searching for self, I became aware of a common theme to both my anxieties and newly formed insights. That being the issue of grounding.  One of the results of this period of reflection is this doodle of an anchor and balloon.   

On my daily walk to the beach, I would pass this incredible tree that had roots starting from its branches, reaching downwards, seeking ground.  One day I found myself standing and staring at these roots for quite a while.  After a moment of processing, the words "I feel you" left my lips. 

In that moment I realized my anxieties were born from my resistance or inability to root down into anything.  I didn't know where or how. 

One of my yoga teachers, Ron Reid, always says that the length in a stretch is determined by the integrity of one's grounding.  And like all yogic insights, I found this to ring true in all areas of my life.  You have to root to grow. One must anchor down to lift up.
