Join us this coming Sunday for a special yoga class for lovers!
Within each phase of life, our experiences vary greatly, though what remains constant is change. This holds true at home and in the workplace. When we feel we’ve mastered one challenge successfully, another one often presents itself. Are all of our challenges simply a natural “part of life” or do they vary depending on how clear we are in a given moment?
Join us at Stretch with Joelle Lazare, registered clinical counsellor and yoga therapist, this coming Sunday, for a second workshop on mindfulness.
Mindfulness is a creative act through which we experience life as it is. Through mindfulness we can develop a more relaxed and flexible nervous system.
Mindfulness practice brings awareness to the witness which helps us to both acknowledge and de-identify with unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and ways of being.
STRETCH is on the lookout for an awesome person who would like a pass to practice at Stretch in exchange for a weekly cleaning shift.
Whether you are a racer, endurance or commuter cyclist, we spend a lot of time hunched forward over our handlebars and powering the legs, which leads to tight legs and sore backs. Yoga asana is the perfect compliment to cycling; creating body awareness, suppleness in the tissues and flexibility so that the body is able to adapt to new training and recover more quickly. When things are tight we have a higher chance of injury, additionally, tight muscles limit circulation, which increases recovery time.
In a world where we face ever-increasing busyness, stress and demands on our time, mindfulness practices offer a way to cultivate our inner listening and unearth our core of stillness. Bit by bit, the act of simply sitting still begins to point us through the layers of our own conditioning to wake up more fully to every aspect of our lives and to the world around us.
