New to Yoga at Hemma?

When was the last time you tried something for the first time?  Branching out into the Hemma_Instagram_YogaWelcomePass-2017unknown tends to stir of a myriad of fears and queries, and we know that going to your first Yoga class is no exception. (“I wonder what’s it’s like to….”, “What if I’m not good at….”) We can tell you all about the benefits of practicing Yoga such as increased flexibility, more strength, calmer mind, and improved energy but unless you have the experience for yourself, these are just concepts. You need to experience the benefits for yourself to understand them.

Trying something once is great to have the experience of it, but if you want to start seeing the benefits of a new activity, regular practice is really the key. At Hemma, we offer a Welcome Pass (1 month membership for new students) so you can experience the power of a regular practice. It also gives you an opportunity to try out a variety of class styles, class times, and teachers to discover what suits your needs. And for the month of May, our Welcome pass is on sale for $60! $60 for 30 days – WOW! If you have been wanting to try Yoga, or already love Yoga and want to check out our friendly studio and accessible classes, drop in soon to set up your pass!

See you on the mat,

Spreading Community Acupuncture

Exactly 10 years ago I was on my way to Portland to attend a workshop on Community Acupuncture. I had no idea how that experience would dramatically shape the next 10 years of my life. For years I had been dreaming of a different way to offer acupuncture, one that would introduce more people to this amazing healing modality, and here it was, happening, just a few hours south. In 2007 there were just a few community clinics operating in North America — hemma was the 18th to open and the first one in Canada to join the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA). Today there are over 200! We are proud to be part of this amazing story, and so grateful to all of you for making it possible. Thanks to everyone who helped us make this wonderful introduction video to hemma community acupuncture!
