Namaste yogis,

Here we go with another month of social distancing. I am not sure about you but I don’t know how I would survive this pandemic without yoga. I am so thankful for having such a great yoga community that is willing to share yoga at this time.

Just for fun, I thought I would offer a pop-up Intermediate Series class tomorrow (Monday) at 5:30 pm. If you haven’t tried intermediate series before, no worries! We will have some fun working through the series together. Just bring your sense of humour and you will be fine :).

My regular free online classes are:
Saturday, 9:00 am – Beginner Yoga
Sunday, 10 am – Led Primary Series with some chanting and pranayama
Wednesday, 5:30 pm – Led class, Manju style
Thursday, 8:00 am – Half led primary series

Mysore

Mondays and Wednesdays at 8 am.
Join Terrilee for a traditional Mysore style Ashtanga Practice. This class is perfect for all levels.
Traditional Mysore classes allow each student to progress at his or her own rate, perfecting their asana practice with the guidance of a teacher on hand for adjustments and enhanced learning.

Sign up

Half Led Primary

Join Terrilee Wednesday evenings for a mixed practice.
In this class we begin each practice with a led class to Navasana then each student progresses with his or her individual Mysore style practice.
The led portion of the practice brings awareness to the breath and this increases the energy and heat in the student. The Mysore style portion allows the student to bring this enhanced energy level into the more self focused areas of their personal practice.

As always students of all levels are welcome to attend.

Sign up

Traditional Led Class

Every Sunday at 10 am join Terrilee for a traditional led Ashtanga class.
Led classes allow students to focus on the breath as they follow the asanas and vinyasa as called out by the teacher. This approach to the practice involves synchronizing breath with progressive and continuous postures, which produces internal heat while detoxifying the body.
This class is suited to all levels of practitioner.
