A Heart Warming Welcome Back

This past month has been one of gratitude for your smiles, kindness, compassion and respect for our new normal. It has been wonderful to see so many familiar faces back at the studio as well as new yogis joining our Beyond community! Much love to our virtual community too...your dedication and enthusiasm each day is inspiring. Thank you from all of our Beyond team.
Self-Care September

With the start of back to school, work and routine, we know that this September may be even more stressful with the complications of navigating the challenges of Covid. Self-care is more important now than ever and we are here to help you find those moments to relax and reenergize.

Two Free Sessions to enjoy...
  • Feel your stress and tension melt away as you bask in the soothing vibrations of the crystal bowls with Glenda on September 16th. This special Crystal Bowl Relaxation will take place at Beyond and is limited to 12 participants. Register early to reserve your spot!

  • Do you want to build healthy habits, or could you use some new dinner inspiration?...Leyette's here to help with her virtual workshop Making the Most of Meal Planning on September 23rd. As a bonus, you will receive a 3-day sample meal plan highlighting some fabulous fall harvest flavours complete with detailed recipes.

Experience the benefits of Meditation with Kimberly
  • Virtual Meditation for Beginners starts September 14th. This 4-week course will explore simple and accessible ways to practice so you can begin to reap the physical, emotional and mental rewards of meditation.

The class schedule for September has been posted and we are pleased to bring you your favourite in-studio and virtual classes. The Lunchbreak Yoga class with Glenda on Tuesdays at 12 p.m. and Yoga Flow with Leyette on Fridays at 1:30 p.m. are now being offered as hybrid classes. (Hybrid classes are offered in studio and also simultaneously live-streamed for virtual attendees. To attend virtually and receive your Zoom meeting link be sure to register for the virtual class.)

This month ensure that you take time to replenish and refresh your spirit in ways that bring you joy...exercise, nature, friends, family, music, a good book and a great yoga class!
Please note...

  • Virtual Classes will continued to be offered on the class schedule until December 31, 2020 at which time we will reassess requirements.
  • In-Studio classes are now open to 12 registrations based on recent changes to regulations. This continues to allow for 6 feet or more between all mats.
  • The studio will be closed on Labour Day - Monday, September 7th for both in-studio and virtual classes.

Happy (early) September!

Are you remembering to make the most of the breath?

Benefits of deep breathing
Whether we're talking about stress reduction, pain or fatigue, improved performance, clarity, immune response, digestion and more...The breath always has something to offer.

Yoga 101
Short, shallow and fragmented breaths = Short, shallow and fragmented thoughts which ripples to physical tension. Deep breathing helps centre the mind and enlivens the body. Plus, it's free and always available.

Removing the obstructions on the breath
Slouching is all too common; it sneaks up on us and becomes our new normal. In fact, a big part of our asana practice is gaining the strength and flexibility to go back to neutral. In our daily life paying attention to how we stand and sit and choosing to create a stable foundation in order to create internal space gives space to the breath enhancing energy levels and wellbeing.
Upcoming Meditation Certification Module
Do you want to deepen your yoga and meditation practice by refining your knowledge and direct experience?... then join Kimberly for this virtual training.

Ayurveda or the medical science of yoga holds many concepts and theories we apply in our yoga and meditation practices. We will explore the concepts of the dosha and the gunas and continue the exploration of the layers of being or the Kosha Model of yoga.

  • Foundations of Ayurveda and Samkhya
  • Pranayama for preparation to meditation
  • Concepts of Dosha (constitution) and the Guna (quality)
  • Applying meditation for yourself and others

Welcome Back ProCare!
We are pleased to announce that ProCare is up and running. We have been gradually reopening and providing care for our clients in the past two months and we are looking forward to continuing our practice this fall. 
When you come in for an appointment you will notice the changes we have made to accommodate COVID-19 safety protocols. Most notably we have implemented a screening process for all clients the evening before their appointment, each treatment room is now equipped with an air filtration system and both the therapist and patient are wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment. 

We want to thank our amazing clients for their patience and support during our reopening process, and we are looking forward to helping you with any aches or pains in the upcoming months. We look forward to seeing you!
