Event description
I wanted to offer a class that will help you get a solid experience of Yoga as I've learned it in India, to experience the essence of Yoga!

About this Event

$20 Suggested Donation (No one will be turned down for lack of funds)

I've attended many many different types of Yoga classes and Group Meditations and spoken with countless Yogis and Meditation teachers over the years learning from all of them. To save you some time I thought I would create a 2 hour class that embodies the simplicity of what they all share and helps point you towards the common thread through them all.

The class will be relaxed and down to earth, focusing on seated poses and finishing with meditation. In the class we will have pauses to address any questions about the poses or Meditation practice. The tone will be casual and fun as well as relaxed, encouraging open minded investigation. I've found these are the best conditions for emerging deeper into Yogic Awareness.

Posture and Meditation:

Poses will be focused on seated and supine asanas, deep streching, hips, spine, legs, chest and shoulders, bandhas may be used, personal instruction will be given as well as simple breathing exercises. Our seated Meditation practice will be focused on breath and body awareness firstly, then with instruction to enter further into inner stillness and finally guiding you towards the all too elusive state of 'just being' lol!

NOTE: NOT for Beginners. FOR intermediate Yogis and beyond

About the Teacher: (Will Deroode)

I am a Yoga Teacher (RYT-200HR) who got certified in Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga by Upaya Yoga School in Goa, India in 2015. I was the president of the Ananda Marga Yoga and Meditation Club at Carleton University while I studied there for my BA in Psychology. During University, I had an intensive focus on how Meditation can reduce the symptoms of Anxiety, Depression and ADHD via the Default Mode Network and completed many projects in this area.I received personal Meditation lessons from the regional Monk who was in charge of the University programs . In 2017 I led a 16-week Mindfulness Meditation program at Canada post's corporate head office in Ottawa. I have facilitated dozens of Transformational Breathwork sessions and recently had the privileged to lead a Breathwork workshop at BassCoast music Festival in 2019. I have attended and volunteered at Vipassana Meditation courses across Canada but above all what I share is based for the most part in my experience (which helps me share Yoga and Meditation and in a fun and relatable way)
