Committing to the Temple: Fall Cleanse Workshop

As we transition into the fall and winter seasons, a sattvic cleanse is an ideal practice to take on and explore to find balance, awareness and grounding within the body. Over the month, we will explore and embrace the Sattvic quality of the foods that nourish us while releasing the foods and habits that may be overstimulating and holding stagnation in the body.                  


Come learn more about cleansing and the sattvic diet with Wen Kauffman! We will start with a light practice to introduce specific kriya and restorative postures that are supportive to the cleansing body, followed by a discussion and Q&A.

A digital cleanse package including recipes will be provided!

Guest Workshop with Nicola Fortin:  "Mind Shift"

This workshop will investigate the workings of the subconscious through yoga practice using the tools of yoga nidra, pranayama, contemplation and meditation. We will explore how our deep rooted and often unconscious belief structures contribute to our present moment experience, impacting our reactions, behaviours and choices.

This workshop is an opportunity to bring light, compassion, and understanding to why we are the way we are, and how we can begin to change our reality using the tools of yoga and through more conscious choices that will create more ease and peace. 

This workshop is open to anyone inquiring how to create more ease, happiness, and equanimity into their lives. This is also a perfect workshop for anyone who has a history of anxiety, depression, or relational struggles in their life. 

"The way we perceive our environment controls our health and fate. Most importantly, when we change the way we respond to the environment, we change our reality." 

October 21 and 22
1:30pm to 4:30pm each day
$100 + tax for both sessions

Guest Workshop with Kevin Naidoo                                       "Pratayahara: The Art of Seeing With"

PRATAYAHARA means to withdraw all senses and when we bring this to our practice, deep healing occurs on a soul level. In this blindfolded intensive, you will discover your truth, authenticity, and the sacred union within. As we let go of the visual realm, we experience a deeper inward connection with the body creating an understanding of the importance of turning inward and developing the inner gaze- observing, feeling, listening, and allowing a posture from the inside out to find an intuitive fluidity of movement.

"When we close ourselves off to sensory stimulation we truly become present with self. There is no where to run, there is no where to hide, there is stillness. Within this gentle battle between ego and soul, we face our shadows and our light. We discover our truth, our authenticity, and the sacred union within. Ego falls away as we bring in self compassion, self worth and self appreciation.  I believe in the power of pratayahara, and I believe you will leave this workshop transformed."
