Iyengar yoga offers specific practices that are hormonally stabilizing and intelligently embrace the myriad hormonal changes that women move through month-to-month, year-to-year.  The emphasis in Iyengar Yoga is cultivating awareness through alignment and feeling the changes that arise when we come into ourselves and undo negative habitual patterns- physically and mentally. The sequencing for women offers nourishing work that cultivates deep integration with the bodies natural processes.

My hope is that these classes will be a sanctuary and build a community that will help women develop true confidence through body and mind awareness. Women need to come together and share these practices now more than ever. Yoga offers exercise, awareness, stability outside of competitive environments that focus on results and performance.  We all deserve this kind of protected space to grow from within and to honour the miraculous changes a women moves through in her lifetime.

I am grateful to have the opportunity to share these teachings and my passion for both the discipline and creativity required to unveil our true selves.

Iyengar Yoga For Teen Girls

 

I am is a series of classes for pre-teen and teen girls ages 12-16.  Iyengar Yoga will be a regular practise with the intention of fostering awareness of self, balance and emotional stability. There will be a special focus on this practise offering pose work to stabilize the hormonal body and nourish ourselves during this time of great physical, mental and emotional change. Iyengar yoga offers specific beneficial practises for girls/women.

I will foster a unique, non competitive, exploratory, fun and safe space for teen girls to explore their authentic selves, voices, feelings through intelligent yoga practise.

Awareness is the gateway to change. And this is yoga.

Additionally, there will be a specific focus on leaving your phone at the door, exploring what that feels like through journalling, creative expression, and connection – to hold space for one’s self and for each other without a screen in between. Participants, by choice leave phones, internet aside.  ** No journalling will be required to be shared.

Our aim post i am classes is a return to the world, as a warrior in control of your destiny- more aware of tendencies and more importantly feelings, as they arise. You will leave with positive tools including several balancing Iyengar yoga sequences to navigate the world of self and others outside of the veil of connectivity that can be a dark side of technology.
