Gentle & Restorative Yoga Description:

Gentle yoga is perfect for people who want to try yoga for the first time or for those who are looking for a softer approach to their practice. In this class we will combine gentle yoga poses with breathing exercises and restorative postures to stretch and strengthen the body, reduce stress and calm the mind. Everybody is welcome to practice yoga in this supportive environment. No yoga experience is required.

  Our new yoga instructor Amy Heason, will be teaching the Gentle & Restorative Yoga classes on Wednesday.  Amy was born & raised in East London, UK.  300hr Yoga Teacher, Self-Empowerment Guide, Entrepreneur & Musician with over 15+ years of experience. She now lives & plays amongst the natural beauty of the Kootenays, Canada. Yoga has expanded her entire belief system to enable her to show up with more compassion, humility, respect and most importantly laughter. Mindful & empowering practices provide us with tools to connect with and integrate the deeper layers of ourselves. With greater awareness comes presence, with presence comes intention and with intention comes the natural ability to align with our true intuitive guidance. Amy’s affinity with music has also evolved into her offerings. She believes sound & vocal vibrations have the capacity to heal the unheard parts of us. It builds clear communication,  removes stagnant energy & opens our energetic centres to call in more self-respect, authenticity & purpose. She teaches Hatha Flow, Gentle Flow, Embodied Yin & Restorative yoga.
