Event description

Description

Move to Renew - 3-part Series

Life's stress can accumulate in the body, tap valuable (yet limited) energy and can take our breath away - not in the swooning kind of way but rather from holding, griping and bracing for more stress or more load in the body. Come move to renew your energy, mobilize your body and restore your nervous system through this gentle, beginner-friendly yoga + movement class.

Each 1 Hour session will integrate subtle strength + mobility work to enliven the whole body and then conclude with passive yoga inspired stretches, self-massage and guided deep relaxation.

  • First Class - Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 6:30-7:30pm ** Changed from May 9th due to conflicts
    Catch your breath (360 breathing, range of motion, and passive tension)
  • Second Class - Thursday, May 16th, 2019 6:30-7:30pm
    Breath in, move out (linking breath to movement; subtle strength)
  • Third Class - Thursday, May 23th, 2019 6:30-7:30pm
    Move into renewal (gentle strength + flow, self-massage and parasympathetic relaxation)

Although designed as a series, each class can be attended individually by new participants. This means that you do not have to have previous experience or have previously attended the classes in the series in order to attend any of the classes.


About the Instructor

Christopher Bourke discovered yoga quite unexpectedly during graduate school in 2007. What began as a mild curiosity soon blossomed into a deeper exploration of what connects us as humans, what helps us heal ourselves, and what supports us during difficult times in our lives. Christopher carried this inquiry into his 200 hour yoga teacher training program in 2016 with Queen Street Yoga. A unique and forward thinking program that emphasized movement as well as antioppressive practices in teaching.

His early education highlighted the importance of expressing your unique self and reducing barriers that make yoga + movement inaccessible to others. Christopher brings wisdom and humour to his teaching and endeavours to offer classes that are lighthearted, supportive and above all, inviting to all bodies, abilities and uniqueness. He teaches with the hope of helping individuals rebuild the connection to their bodies, expand their range of motion, and reduce the impact of stress on their nervous system

Lead by the spirit of inclusion Christopher has embarked on nearly 500 hours of training in therapeutic yoga, mindful strength + mobility work, the tensegrity repair series, and deep restorative breath work + self-massage. He has been incredibly fortunate to train with innovative movement educators like Susi Hately, Kathryn Bruni Young, Jill Miller, Trudy Austin, Andrea Soos and Jessy Enright. Couple this movement education with nearly a decade of mental health professional experience, Christopher's practice is rooted in well informed wisdom that supports recovery and helps individuals hone their greatest resource - presence.
