Meet your Night at the Greenhouse hosts

Nicole Catenazzi

Nicole first experienced the transformational potential of yoga in a tropical jungle in Costa Rica and credits the practice for bringing present-moment awareness of body and mind. Now a 500-hour certified yoga instructor, she specializes in teaching in hatha, vinyasa, restorative yoga and meditation practices so that others may experience the same. Her goal is to help you find your power, your potential and your peace through movement, meditation and self-inquiry by encouraging you to listen to what your body needs, and responding with compassionate acceptance.

Nicole’s yoga offerings include private instruction and drop-in classes in Hamilton, workshops around the globe, and an annual yoga retreat in the South of France. Follow her online at https://www.nicolecatenazzi.com/ and on Instagram (@namastebynicole).

Lilli is a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with designations in various movement, meditation and healing modalities, including Thai Massage and Ayurvedic Bodywork through the Sunshine Network, Integrative Restoration (iRest), Franklin Method and Laban/Bartenieff Movement Analysis.

Tropical Greenhouse - Land Acknowledgement

“The City of Hamilton recognizes and acknowledges that we are located on the traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee. This land is covered by the “Dish With One Spoon” Wampum Belt Covenant which was an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabek to share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We further acknowledge that this land is covered by the Between the Lakes Purchase, 1792, between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Today, the City of Hamilton is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island (North America) and we recognize that we must do more to learn about the rich history of this land so that we can better understand our roles as residents, partners and caretakers.”

What do I need to bring?

All you need to bring is a yoga mat! If you don’t have one, let us know beforehand and we can bring one for you to borrow.

The greenhouse is warmer and more humid than a typical venue, so we recommend that you wear light and comfortable clothes for you to move in, and a water bottle so you can stay hydrated.

What time does the event start?

Doors to the greenhouse open at 6:00 pm with the yoga class starting at 7:00 pm. Arrive with plenty of time to set up your mat and enjoy all the greenhouse has to offer!

What time does the event end?

The yoga and meditation practices will wrap up by 9:00 pm and you can enjoy the greenhouse until 10:00 pm; exploring the plant life, shopping with our vendors, hanging with your friends, and nibbling on tasty plant-based snacks.

The greenhouse is not open to the public after dark, so this is your chance to see it from a different perspective!

What if I’ve never done yoga or meditation before?

No problem! The practices will be sequenced so you can follow along at your own pace. Rest whenever you need and move in whatever ways feel good for your body. Contact us before the event if you have any questions or concerns about participating.

Does representation and accessibility matter?

Absolutely, and we, with the support of our vendors and partners, want to do what we can to make this event as inclusive as possible.
