Grow. Learn. Improve.
"Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the process, and you improve life."
–Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais
We are pleased to offer Awareness Through Movement® classes at Prana Yoga Studio with Gisele St. Hilaire. Awareness Through Movement® lessons help us become conscious of movement habits that waste precious energy. The lessons help us find ways to move that give way to increased ease and comfort. Most of the lessons are done lying on the mat and have a gentle, mindful quality, though there are challenging moments as we meet our blind spots and learn new strategies for moving within these areas. The lessons honour each individual’s pace and range of motion. Curiosity and a willingness to explore are all that are required. You can learn more about Gisele and her work at her website.
Gisele is also available for hour long private lessons at Prana Yoga Studio on Thursdays between 10:30 PM – 12:30 PM. On-line booking is available on her website: sunyatamovementstudio.com
"I have found these lessons of tremendous benefit, not only to my yoga practice but to how I move in my world."
Mitzvah Technique and Itcush Method with Kana Nemoto
The Mitzvah Technique and Itcush Method is a new approach for movement and function of the body. Focusing on the alignment and mechanics of the skeletal system, one learns to release unnecessary tension in order to achieve efficient movements with minimum effort.
This class is intended for returning students who have taken classes before and have experience with the basic exercises and theories. You will learn more advanced exercises and gain deeper understanding of free movement in the body. Please wear comfortable clothes (sweat pants and shirts), sweater and socks.
Kana Nemoto trained as a classical ballet dancer in Japan, before moving to Canada in 2009. She is a Certified Mitzvah Technique and Itcush Method teacher since 2013 and has been teaching both in Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Guided Meditation with Darryl Bailey
Darryl Bailey is a highly regarded meditation teacher and author. He is offering his teachings and guided meditation on the last Sunday of each month at Prana Yoga Studio. These Sunday gatherings are open to all. No previous experience is required.
"If we sit quietly, making no effort, life expresses itself clearly; it simply happens on its own. There’s nothing else to get. The great truth is obvious. The heart beats; the breath comes and goes. Vibrations, pulsations, twinges, feelings, thoughts, and emotions rise and fall. Urges rise and pass; some become actions, others do not; and so life flows." –Darryl Bailey
We are pleased to carry the books of Darryl Bailey, Buddhessence, Essence Revisited, and Dismantling the Fantasy.
