GENTLE MINDFUL YOGA WITH PUPPIES IN HAMILTON ONTARIO

Gentle mindful yoga is a calming practice designed to activate the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system while creating a deep awareness of the mind-body-breath connection and cultivating greater feelings of self-acceptance and self-appreciation.

Puppies will be available for cuddles and puppy love as well as a constant reminder about joy and here and now.

In this practice, we will move the body through a series of soft, fluid movements, focusing our attention on noticing and feeling sensations in the body, without judgment or expectation. Using breathe as an anchor, participants are in full control of their experience in the present moment. A short Yoga Nidra practice will end this class.

Come and step into your practice, nourish your mind and body and fill your heart with puppy love.

Part of the proceeds will be donated to Moringa’s Mission to help animals in Dominican Republic.

Scholarships available if paying the ticket price is difficult please contact us for options – contactkingazak@gmail.com

Please bring your yoga mat and a water bottle. READ ABOUT US IN THE HAMILTON SPECTATOR

Shivana Yoga

I started my yoga journey 23 years ago and continued on to become a yoga instructor. Following two car accidents, several health related struggles and a diagnosis of C-PTSD, I have found tremendous healing through gentle yoga, mindfulness and meditation practice. In my classes, I focus on mindfully connecting body, mind and breath, particularly sensitive to those with mobility issues and those who suffer with PTSD. As a life long learner, I have attended many courses in CBT, CPT, DBT skills, Reiki and Reflexology. In my previous career, I was a high school teacher specializing in teaching children with special needs. My approach is gentle, calming and I use loving, compassionate practice to help those working through difficulty. My winsome personality and wit will have you laughing, and my soothing energy will have you leaving my classes rested and relaxed. Be prepared to bliss out.
