Wayfinding with nature: embodied practices to cultivate rhythmic intelligence

“We turn the wheel of the year. We are time unfolding – seasons following seasons flowing through us, bodies, hearts, minds.”

~ Maeanna Welti

Offerings

Yoga

My yoga offerings are rooted in the traditional teachings of Hatha yoga. Mindful vinyasa is woven together with nature based wisdom to inspire the day to day living of this practice.  A moving prayer, connecting the mind,  body and soul.  A practice  which inspires the cultivation of self awareness, tuning into the breath, and cyclical energetics to enliven the spirit of connection.

Lunar Yoga

Next cycle begins January 19/23

90 minute class
Thursdays Mornings 10am

$111 for 4 sessions

Series of four offerings taking us through an entire lunar cycle to deepen cyclical awareness.

When our practice is guided by the energy of the moon we find more ease in connecting with our own rhythm. Balancing yin and yang, the lunar and solar, action and rest, this 4 week series draws inspiration from the lunar phases and the lunar zodiac. We will embark on a journey with the rhythm that runs through one full lunar cycle from New moon, waxing first quarter moon, Full Moon, and waning last quarter moon into Dark Moon.

Healing Touch — Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese healing modality that supports the flow of universal life force energy throughout the body. Rei means spiritual wisdom, essence. Ki meaning vital life force energy.

Reiki involves a series of gentle hand placements on the body while fully clothed. These placements encourage energy flow by addressing energetic blocks that may be experienced as dis-ease and discomfort in the body/mind/ and spirit. As such, Reiki provides a balancing of Ki to promote overall health and vitality. It is a beautiful opportunity to practice noticing and feel into deeply restorative and revitalizing states of being. It is in this way that we attune ourselves to our inner wisdom, and our unique rhythm thereby entering into deeper connection with ourselves.

In Reverence of the Rhythm of Winter

A sound blessing to inspire the art of noticing the seasonal medicine of winter

Thursday, January 26/23
Thursday, February 23/23

6pm-7:30pm
90 minute sound meditation and guided personal reflection — $44

This is a nourishing space to be invited into ceremony with ourselves, where we experience sound as a blessing, to inspire the noticing of the medicine of winter. And to deepen our connection to this season in understanding of our own inner cycles and sacred rhythm.

Winter is a time of powerful inward reflection when nature calls us to allow space for deep and radical rest. A time of deep listening in which to enter into relationship with the unknown. Exploring the ways we can draw wisdom from the darkness and the gifts of winter.

During this winter season, may we be called into the presence of the beauty of surrender, of the importance of rest as restoration, of expansive awareness, of time for visioning and making meaning and of gentle presence and grace, not only in remembrance of who we are, but also who we are becoming.

Devotional

January 22nd with the New Moon 3:45–6:00pm.
Stand alone offer to feel into whether DEVOTIONAL is resonant for you $122

In partnership together we, Alia and Danielle, have created DEVOTIONAL — a monthly in person gathering, to come together in community and embark on a journey of devotion.

It is our deepest intention to create a nourishing space in which we feel held in the deep knowing of our belonging and in re-membrance of the innate wisdom that lies within us.  This heart offering Is about sharing space together, in devotion to creating a life we love, as much as it is anything else.  A space where we can feel into the experience of being alive together. Sharing in the connection of what this means for each of us.

Be inspired by seasonal practices, tools and teachings rooted in traditional yogic philosophy, somatic movement, breathwork, meditation, creative practice,  the art of noticing, embodied connection with nature,  cyclical awareness and lunar wisdom, balancing and grounding with the elements, plant medicine and essential oils.

We will embark on a devotional journey of self discovery that transforms our experience of being alive by living consciously.

Each Devotional month is rooted in a specific theme tied to the energy of the season. Bringing us back into a relationship with a living world and re-membering the wisdom that lives deep within our bones. It is in this way that we invite a life of joyful ease, make medicine from our wounds, and find deeper connection to each other, ourselves and the natural world.  That we may come to know our inner landscape and draw upon this knowing as though it were a compass bringing us into alignment with our purpose. For it is in living in devotion to this purpose that allows us to build a bridge from the heart out into the world to share our unique medicine.

Each gathering will honour:
– Breathwork and tuning into personal rhythms
– A sharing around the wisdom and energy of the season through activities such as: creative practice, embodied rituals, guided meditations, practical tools, sharing seasonal resources, time spent in nature, ceremony, poetry etc.
– Yoga / somatic movement
– Personal reflection and Community share

“The mystery of emptiness and fulfillment, loneliness and all-one-ness, surrounds you each day. The lessons teach you to realize that your own body/mind is the container of love. Within you are worlds and beings, lands and adventures that guide your every day life. Recognize that you have been given time, and time is the road on which you lay your life day by day. Through time, you are to love. Lessons come your way and you are to live each one in the highest love that you can generate, offering every life experience to that embodiment of all love, the Great Spirit within. Spirit dwells everywhere and it is up to you to find it. You have been given a life of time in which to do so. How do you spend your time is how you love. What you spend your time doing is that what you are devoted. What you are devoted to is your religion. Your religion is your spiritual expression. It does not have to be formal and dogmatic. Life is to be your love, your expression, your devotion.  Every moment is an opportunity for sacrament or sacrifice. You can make life sacred or profane.”
—Carol Bridges from “The Medicine Woman Inner Guidebook”

Lunar Guidance

60 minutes – $144

Lunar charting is a transformational practice. A journey that will take you on a pilgrimage home to yourself. Whether you are seasoned in lunar charting or are new to the practice, this is an invitation to deepen your connection.

– Lunar phases and energetics
– Lunar charting –  the use of symbols and orbits
– Setting intentions
– Elemental archetypes
– The art of noticing –  identifying areas in your life that you want to chart
– Lunar astrology and zodiac cycles
– The wisdom of cycles within cycles
– Creative mandala practice
– Discovering your natal moon phase and how this energy inspires your life
– Identifying blocks and limiting beliefs, inviting abundance
– Reflection and release – identifying what feels in alignment and what needs to be released

Noticing is in my nature. It is how I communicate with the natural world, how I make sense of the world around me, the people I encounter along the way and the experiences that colour my life. It was the Moon that invited me into relationship with noticing and the realization that this noticing was indeed a gift, an expression of personal medicine meant to be shared with the world. She was a gateway into deeper connection with the natural world and a rhythmic self awareness that continues to inspire me to show up to my life in beauty and reverence.

Discover your natural rhythms through the lens of lunar cycles. The New Moon Calendar Journal created by April McMurtry of The Moon is My Calendar, is a tool for aligning with inner and outer cycles, and leads to the development of rhythmic intelligence. This beautiful journal is Nature’s healing container. A space to be in rhythm with circular time, to record health and wellness practices, to observe personal energetics and emotions, to set intentions, to explore creative practice, to identify patterns and to reflect and release and come to know that the end is truly the beginning.

The New Moon Calendar Journal is included in this offering.

Be invited into deeper relationship with nature and yourself. As a Moon Guide Facilitator with The Moon is my Calendar, I would be honoured to support you in this journey.

1:1 sessions and small group workshops available. A complimentary 1/2hr phone call to discuss the area of your interest is included before our session together. For group offerings, please reach out to discuss.

*All offerings are held in my sunshine filled home studio nestled in the Scarborough Bluffs. Also home to our sweet shepherd/retriever and two kitties, for those of you who need to be mindful of allergies.
