Join Dawn Batenchuk for a 4 week Intro to Yin Yoga series starting Saturday October 11 from 9-10:15am.

Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin Yoga  targets the connective tissues and joints to increase strength and maximize range of motion. Poses are mostly done seated on the floor accessing the hips, pelvis, spine and shoulder joints as well as the lower body energy meridians.

Perfect for those new to yoga and active individuals looking to enhance performance overall.

When: Saturday’s 9-10:15am beginning October 11th

Cost: $60+gst for 4 week series

$18 Drop In or use your pass!

Weekend of Meditation with Neil McKinlay

McKinlay-Photo-300x225

We are excited to host Neil McKinlay once again for a weekend of Meditation at Coastal Bliss Yoga Studio!
Join us in Grounding our Practice and our Lives through Meditation with the Body.

The human journey arises out of the incredible richness of our bodies, the mysterious depths of this earth. This all-level workshop will use the practice of ‘Meditating with the Body’ to explore this truth in an experiential way. Mixing guided meditation and group discussion, we will touch the inherent openness of our being and find ourselves ready to embrace our lives more completely, more wholly than ever before.

Participants are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing, and to bring a blanket and mat to lay on. Should participants have a meditation cushion or bench, these are recommended.

Neil McKinlay is a teacher, coach, and writer. A close student of Reggie Ray, Neil draws from his training in the tradition of Chogyam Trungpa to emphasize the accessibility and relevance of meditation in the modern world.

When: 

Friday Oct 24 7:30-9 pm

Saturday Oct 25 1-5:00 pm

Sunday Oct 26 8:30-10:30 am & 1-3 pm
