Yoga & Pilates for Glute Strengthening and Activation with Darla O’Reilly

Sunday, June 27

6:30pm – 8:30pm

Are you experiencing gluteal amnesia? It may sound unusual but it is a real condition and is prevalent these days, thanks to our sedentary lifestyles and jobs that tie us to a desk or driver’s seat from 9 to 5 (if not longer). Did you know that it is possible to improve your posture, stabilize your knee and hip joints, and relieve your lower back pain by teaching your body to engage the trio of muscles that make up the gluteals?

A more deliberate emphasis on targeting the powerful gluteus muscles will result in a more balanced and mobile lower body. This 2-hour workshop is designed to activate and strengthen the gluteal muscles. Through a wide variety of yoga and pilates movements, you will learn to fire up your glutes and translate this practice into your everyday activities.

Space for 6 socially distanced students in class and 10 online via Zoom.  Students will have access to the recording for 2 weeks after the workshop. Bring your mat and yoga props that you have to class and we’ll fill in the gaps with clean studio props. Props needed are : Bolster, 2 Blankets, 2 Blocks, Chair & Strap/Belt.  If joining online we will give you a list of household items that work in place of studio props.

Investment: $40 (HST included)

Restore & Renew for Summer with Megan Morgan

Sunday July 18

6:30pm – 8:30pm

Summer can be such a wonderful time with outdoor activities, flowers in bloom and nicer weather.  We can get caught up in wanting to do ALL the things, and thinking we need to enjoy summer while it’s here as the season is so short! Having a “fear of missing out” mindset can leave us overwhelmed and exhausted.  Remember you still need to fill up your cup in the summer months.  If you are feeling depleted, then restorative yoga is the practice for you.  It is a healing practice designed to reduce stress, tension and fatigue through holding supported poses for longer periods of time to promote relaxation.   This powerful practice re-teaches the body its inherent ability to relax and can bring more balance to your everyday life.

Gather with us online or in studio to melt away tension and connect to a deep sense of peace.

Class will be held in studio (maximum of 6 students) and also online through Zoom.  Bring your own props to class or use your own at home in the online class.  You will need a mat, bolster, 2-3 blankets, blocks and a strap.  We have suggestions of items from around the house if you do not have yoga props.

Class will be recorded, and a link will be provided to you after class so you can replay, the link will expire after two weeks.

Investment: $35 (HST included). If you are a Studio member use your discount code
