A workshop dedicated to rejuvenating the body inside and out through awareness of our senses.
As the seasons starts to change from one to the another, physically, mentally and emotionally we undergo changes as well. Taking time to ground yourself and find focus in the present moment can ease with this transition. Among the hustle and bustle of this urban environment, we invite you to take this opportunity to practice mindfulness of the senses. Slowing down, tuning in and observing each of the sense as it relates to ourself, others, and all that surrounds us on a daily basis.
Learn techniques to become a better witness, Not only to yourself but to the people you cross paths with on the streets, the spaces that you encompass, the sounds , the textures, the light, the shadows, the patterns, the inhales and the exhales. Without labeling, simply noticing. Stimulating your senses to live a fuller, authentic expression of yourself.
This exploration begins with you. Starting each adventure with the mindful methods of Meditation and Yoga. Giving you a chance to be still to find your roots and get grounded. After this, it’s time to look around, listen, feel and experience life as it happens. Taking time to set the intention for the day..
After, we will find movement through a asana practice as I guide you through a Vinyasa flow with a focus on balance , grounding and stability. Accompanying us for the sense of hearing, we will have of live musicians on hand.
Immediately following this, we will focus on the healing aspects of touch. Jennifer will demonstrate the Ayurvedic Abhyanga self-massage technique., to calm and soothe the nervous system , revitalizing and re -nourishing the skin through the harshest seasons.
At the end of all this, I invite you to my table to gather as a community, to enjoy a meal, bringing a focus to our sense of smell & taste and share your thoughts over a culinary experience of healthy seasonal superfoods and drinks. There will be two special quests at the table to share their knowledge and experience. Marie-Claude, a food educator, and Kim Parenteau, a Ayurvedic practitioner. Both will share their passion for wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle.
