Beats and Breath – Amber Run

I will be teaching Beats and Breath tonight at Cornerstone Yoga Collective at 8pm. This is my first Vinyasa class since I have made my return to teaching, which means I am equal parts excited and nervous. I have actually planned the class in preparation for my rustiness, there will be some interesting transitions along with some “fun” core work all leading to a peak pose. I chose the band Amber Run for the sound track because I have used a few of their songs in some of my previous yoga playlists, and I think the vibe of their music is the perfect background sound for a challenging and lively flow.  If you love getting sweaty and moving your body into weird shapes while focusing on your breath then join me at the studio tonight.

I’m Back (Subbing tonight)

Tonight I will be subbing the Restorative class from 730pm-830pm at Cornerstone Yoga Collective.  I have missed teaching and cannot wait to start getting back into it. I hope to see some familiar faces in the studio tonight. Even though restorative yoga is kind of foreign to me I am working on putting together a class that will help you relax and release the tension that has built up over the work week.

On a side note I am hoping I will be able to sub more not only at Cornerstone but at Soul Space as well, but my availability strongly depends on childcare. For those of you who are curious about how motherhood is going for me, so far it is amazing. My little boy, Sawyer Anders Channell is now a strong healthy 5 month old and has an early bed time that will hopefully make it possible for me to pick up some more classes.

 

August Schedule

It seems that these days I am lucky if I can cover 2 classes a month. This month those two classes are 715pm Vinyasa at Soul Space Yoga August 1st (tomorrow night) and 715pm Vinyasa at Cornerstone August 6th. The theme for me this month is working on binding and integrating it into a unique flow that is sure to be a challenge. As always I will be combining strength and flexibility movements into class in order to help improve overall mobility. I can’t wait to see every ones lovely faces on their mats!

Beats & Breath East Coast Style

I am teaching Beats and Breath at Cornerstone Yoga Collective tomorrow night (April 10th) at 8pm. My good friend Ryan, who, just like me was lucky enough to be born and raised in the laid back and under rated province of Nova Scotia, gave me the idea to create a playlist featuring artists originating from our amazing province. Some people might be surprised by the familiar musicians that appear on this list, such as April Wine, The Trews and Sloan, amoung many others. I hope to see you on your mats tomorrow night as we embrace the “go with the flow” attitude of the Maritime’s.

I’m Teaching Feb 26 & 27

I will be leading the 715 Vinyasa class at Cornerstone Yoga Collective tonight. I am going back to my roots tonight and will be teaching a class that will probably feel really familiar if you have been practicing with me since I was fresh out of yoga teacher training. There will still be  strong emphasis on strength, working some muscles that tend to get neglected by the majority of yoga poses.

Tomorrow night I am teaching the 8pm Beats and Breath class where we will be flowing to the chill tunes of The Lumineers.

Hope to see you there!

Feb 19 Vinyasa

I am excited to be teaching the Tuesday 715pm Vinyasa class at Cornerstone Yoga Collective. If you choose to join me on your mat tomorrow night you can expect a strong flow that will challenge your balance, on your feet and your hands. I will be incorporating transitions that are influenced by yoga classes I have been doing from home that I find mentally invigorating. It is always fun to move your body in a way you may have not before. If you choose to join me your mind and body will thank you. 🙂

I will also be teaching the Beats and Breath class next Wednesday.

Classes This Week

On Saturday Nov 24  from 10-11:15am I will be teaching Yin at Soul Space Yoga . I am excited to be back in this space, it will be my first class here since I went on maternity leave. I can’t wait to see all the new faces and maybe a couple familiar ones!

I will be teaching Beats and Breath Wednesday the 28th at Cornerstone Yoga from 8-9pm. This will be a slightly more upbeat class since I have decided to play Third Eye Blind. This band is most known for their 90’s sound and is one of the few bands that my husband and I both enjoy. I am aiming to make the class a bit more laid back as we all enjoy the 90’s throw back.
