Inhale Energy...Exhale Calm...Repeat x 3
We're entering the cocooning month of November and we have a variety of classes, workshops and trainings to inspire introspection while helping you stay motivated and energized.

Beyond Yoga — YOUR Yoga (and Beyond) Studio & Wellness Centre
Yoga...It's always a good time to start or start again.
Beyond Monthly Yoga Tip
Breathe Easy Techniques:

  1. Sit or stand tall;
  2. Relax facial muscles;
  3. Feel like you're just about to smile;
  4. Give the breath space;
  5. When we inhale we think of a bird taking flight and feel the expansion;
  6. When we exhale we think of a bird taking perch and we welcome the natural calm the exhale provides; and
  7. Remain curious.
Fun facts about the lungs:
  1. The lungs are the only organs that float on water;
  2. The left lung is smaller to give space to the heart; and
  3. If the lungs were open flat they would be the size of tennis court.

Cultivating Patience: Meditation Series
with Kimberly Mantas
The cultivation of patience infuses us with the ability of confidence and abilities to know that all is not permanent, and all is perhaps not what it seems. Equanimity is cultivated and we suffer less, and we create space to thrive.

During the session, we will explore the concepts of suffering, happiness and patience and we will rest, breathe, and meditate.
Everyone is welcome.
