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.
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.
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 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!
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.
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.
I will be teaching the Vinyasa class at 715 tonight at Cornerstone Yoga Collective. If you didn’t have anything planned for tonight besides watching Netflix on your couch then you should update that plan to joining me in the studio.
I will be subbing three classes this week at Cornerstone Yoga Collective:
Wednesday Feb 7 – 545 pm Yin (Tonight)
Thursday Feb 8 – 545 pm Beginner
Sunday Feb 11 – 7 pm Yin
I am excited to be teaching the evening crowd 🙂
I will be teaching at the 7:15pm Vinyasa Class at Cornerstone Yoga Collective tonight. I am looking forward to leading everyone who joins me through a fun, thoughtful strong flow. The morning classes I normally teach are only 60 minutes long, so I am looking forward to having the extra 15 minutes to play around with some more complicated shapes.
If you do decide to join me on your mat tonight, get ready for some lower body work as that is where my practice has been taking me lately, as I try my best to prepare my body for the arrival of my baby. You can count on a couple variations of Malasna (Yogi Squat) making an appearance, it has been one of my favorite and most empowering asanas recently, partially because it allows lots of room for my continuously growing belly. Also, ever since I have started engaging the proper muscles while holding malasana I have gained so much more strength in the position, and feel extremely supported . Personally, I have noticed that when I feel strong/supported in a certain pose or my body as a whole, I also feel strong mentally. It always fascinates me how what I learn and discover about myself and practice while I am on my mat usually translates into my life off of the mat, without me even realizing it. I have been consistently staying active and building more strength throughout my second trimester and I really think it is helping me better navigate my pregnancy without feeling overwhelmed.
Due to the fact that Trent injured himself again, I have been subbing at Cornerstone Yoga Community more often lately. Tonight I will be teaching the Beginner class from 545-645. I will also be teaching this class on Dec 28th and Jan 4th. The class tonight will incorporate some balancing poses, since they are my favourite, they also help to build strength and stability that supports the other aspects of our practice.
on another note….
This time of year it is easy to make excuses that prevent you from making it to your mat, but it’s the weeks that lead up to wonderful yet stressful holidays when it the most important to find some down time for yourself. Yoga is a safe space to embrace that down time as you work on your breath and movement surrounded by lovely individuals who are probably feeling just as over whelmed with all the holiday preparations as you are. I hope to see some of you there tonight. 🙂
