The Lotus Sessions: Inner guided Yoga and live music Online
with Rara Avis & Michael Hall
Friday, April 10 7:30-9:00 pm

  Come to experience the original meaning of “flow yoga” — an innovative experience providing yogis with a safe, supportive space for self guided practice,  surrounded by a seamlessly created flow of live music crafted specifically for the yoga journey.


The Lotus Sessions will begin with a guided meditation and warm-ups done together, lead by yoga teacher Michael Hall. You will then be invited to flow into the experience of a solo yoga practice. Listening to your body as you move through the yoga practice that moves you. The solo practice will be inspired by a soundscape crafted by Rara Avis, a 20 year practitioner of the yogic arts with a specialized focus on creating seamless music for yoga using guitar, flutes, beats, drones and vocals. He will be joined by special guest musician Michael Hall, owner/founder of Hemma. We will end this practice by being guided into Savasana, where we will rest together.

This event will be live streamed on Friday April 12, from 7:30-9:00
The even event will be by donation. We will add link to livestream soon.


Mantra and Daily Sadhana – The Path to Healing, Light and Peace
with Sannyasi Shivani Howe
Saturday, April 18th 12:00-4:00pm

*This event has been postponed

For most, the Yogic journey starts with Asana, but Yogic life does not start, nor end with one’s physical practice.  Mantra provides the opportunity to deepen practice and evolve to open to a higher vibration and more subtle level of awareness.  Sadhana is simply a daily spiritual practice designed to allow oneself to turn inward and perceive life as it truly is. Learn the philosophy behind both Mantra and Sadhana as essential practices to connect with the higher Self. Students will learn key Mantras and will be assisted in developing a daily Mantra Sadhana that enables the discipline required towards discovering the true Self through purification, intention and balance.

Shivani Howe is the founder of Ishtadev Niwas Yoga Centre in Tata Creek, British Columbia, Canada and the non-profit Living Yoga Society. She is an accomplished artist, writer, inspirational speaker and karma sannyasin yogini at the feet of her Gurus Paramahansa Satyananda Saraswati and Paramahansa Satyasangananda Saraswati, in Rikhia Ashram, India.

A MEDITATION WORKSHOP: STAY STRONG THROUGH CHANGES
WITH PADMA
SUNDAY, APRIL 26TH 2:00-4:00PM

*This event has been postponed

With Meditation, wisdom and guided practices, Padma will reveal how to find your centre and stay in a place of strong peace, even as the world continues to change all around you. Find your power and maintain your joy. This 2-hour workshop will include enlightening eastern psychology, strengthening guided meditations and empowering breath work.

The world is constantly, unpredictably changing and it’s very hard for anyone to stay calm and happy and clear-minded through all these changes.
During this workshop, Padma will clarify how it is we get lost in the constant changes of the world and thereby lose our power and happiness. Drawing from the time-tested wisdom, experience and psychology of meditation traditions, Padma will guide you to regain a true sense of your inner strength and stability.
You’ll learn a Sanskrit wisdom Sutra from the Patanjali Yoga Darshan, and deeply understand how this ancient knowledge applies to your daily life. You’ll be guided into meditations and breath exercises that connect you to your inner power.There will be time for dialogue and for you to ask your own questions.Join Padma for two wonderful hours of discovery and delight!
