Off for July and August – Have a great summer!

HATHA YOGA 

Tuesdays 9:15 am – 10:15 am (Denise Smith Dance Studio – click here)

An active class which includes meditation (mindfulness), asanas (physical postures), and pranayama (breath work) with the intention of bringing balance and harmony to body and mind. Elements of yoga philosophy are woven into the class for reflection and contemplation. Suitable for all levels; some yoga experience helpful but not necessary.

YIN YOGA  

Thursdays and Sundays 9:15 am – 10:15 am (Denise Smith Dance Studio – click here)

A passive class where the body releases into long-held poses (up to 5 minutes) with the intention of bringing stimulation to the connective tissues of the body through slow, steady, traction-like pressure. Pressurizing the tissues this way also helps to balance the flow of energy or “CHI” throughout the body. A highly meditative class with guided breath work. Suitable for all levels including those new to yoga and an excellent complement to more active styles of yoga.

YOGA-PILATES 

Wednesdays 9:45 am – 11:00 am (Nepean Creative Arts Centre – www.ottawa.ca)

Spring session is now over; off for the summer. Registration for fall session will begin in August. Check City of Ottawa website later this summer for dates.

An active class that blends dynamic movement, yoga poses, Pilates mat work, and core exercises with mindful awareness and breath attention. A well-rounded class for those who are looking for a fusion-style workout with a holistic approach. Suitable for all levels; sorry no drop-ins – registered class only
