- judgment free environment
- all levels of fitness and experience welcome
The Plan in Short:
Time for healing! Our newest healing Hatha yoga session with our special hired instructor from Yoga Tree will come with a twist, being held at Warrior Muay Thai - a great gym with nice tatami mat floors, a boxing ring, and boxing bags.
After all that sitting and computing, it's only right to give those hips and shoulders the recentering they deserve. But at the same time, how about a little martial arts strengthening?
These events are also great unplugs from the erratic alert filled lives we all live with meditative elements. Since we are in a Muay Thai gym, we can hit pads and then jump into a yoga session with a hired pro.
This event can be held Sunday July 29th or Sunday August 5th from 4pm to 7pm - we need 6 people to run and the cost will be drum roll only $35+hst
We have 1/6 but poor Vanessa is chilling alone so far lol
A MESSAGE FROM YOUR HOST: Admittedly, I'm not a "yoga person" by default. But, it turns out that years of martial arts followed by years of sitting at a desk job will hurt your joints. I've sprained both ankles multiple times, had at least a few dislocations and subluxations and to add insult to injury, gained a few points from university and working in technology! I've done all sorts of athletic therapy and physical therapy and none of them have helped as much as consistent Yoga. Let's meet up together, share stories, and have an epic hatha yoga session with one of the best instructors in Toronto! We made some great memories last time!
What is Hatha Yoga?
To begin, the word hatha literally means “effort,” “force,” or “exertion,” and as such has a couple important implications when designating the physical branch of Yoga. First, “hatha yoga” technically refers to an approach to Yoga which begins with exertion or physical effort. Traditionally, we would start with conspicuous effort (i.e., the poses), then work toward more subtle practices, (breathwork, muscular and energetic “locks” designed to guide the flow of energy, etc.), before finally moving to the more internal level of meditation.
The second importance of the term hatha is the reminder it provides that we will need to apply effort if we hope to advance in our practices. Simply put, many of us presume the spiritual path will be easier than it actually is. As a result, we often get discouraged and allow ourselves to be derailed by distractions and temptations. The fact that this is called the path of “effort” reminds us that spiritual work takes every bit as much exertion and dedication as physical work, and that we shouldn’t let that effort discourage us. The term “The Yoga of Effort” reminds us that this exertion is completely natural and normal, ultimately helping us stay positive and on track.
