Almost "Happy Holiday" Season!!

November 28, 2015

Almost “Happy Holiday” Season!

“The calm before the storm.” Here we are, the final few days in November before the calendar turns over and we enter the busy holiday season with festivities, events, travelling, guests, parties, outdoor activities, eating and drinking and all the fun activities!

Something new for me this year, instead of a chocolate advent calendar I am creating a Kindness Advent Calendar, 24 days of kindness! I will commit to an act of kindness for each day leading up to Christmas. I have some simple ideas already; plugging someone’s meter, buying supplies for SPCA, taking a friends dog for a walk. However, I would love to hear some of your ideas of “random acts of kindness” or well thought out “acts of kindness.” If any of you are interested in joining me in the Kindness Advent Calendar we could post our Kindness Day Activities on my Facebook page to share!

3. Yoga Therapy in the Community

I have been thrilled to have some continuing teaching opportunities as well as some new teachings in the Greater Trail community. Here is what Kerry is up to with Yoga Therapy in the Greater Trail Community!

Yoga therapy for mental health and wellbeing:

      I.         Daly Pavilion: I have been teaching Yoga Therapy at the Daly Pavilion for almost 1.5 years and I love the challenge and spontaneity of teaching in the acute psychiatry unit. I have learned so much from teaching at the Daly, in particular how everyone takes something different from each session, re-iterating the value and diversity of that yoga therapy offers. Truly, something for everyone!  I teach the group class at the Daly on Thursday mornings.

    II.         Harbour House: I am now teaching a pilot Yoga Therapy program at the Harbour House. This is in its early stages and I am excited to see this program continue to grow! I am at the Harbour House Thursday afternoons.

  III.         Stroke Recovery Group of BC: I have been teaching with the Stroke Recovery Group over the last 3 years and I have found this group to be incredibly receptive and open to Yoga Therapy! We work mainly in chairs, however, we also practice standing postures to work on strength and balance. One thing that is requested at each session is to work on deepening the breath, as many find they naturally breathe quite shallow! I teach with Stroke Recovery Group on Thursdays at lunch.

   IV.         TECK: I teach 4 gentle, mindful flow classes at Teck during their lunch breaks. These classes are open to all staff and many find they love the yoga classes as a respite from their working day. A chance to stretch, release tension and relax before going into their afternoon work! These classes are truly for everyone, all levels and the focus is on mindfulness and relaxation. This month I also started a new program at TECK called “Healthy Minds, Healthy Brains.” These presentation and practice sessions are open to everyone at Teck and I highly recommend joining if you are at all interested in learning how to reduce the mental stress and learn strategies for strengthening the brain for greater ease in one’s life as well as increased focus and productivity! I am onsite Mondays and Wednesdays.

     V.         Yoga for Staff at KBRH! A new program for the staff of KBRH to come and participate in a healthy, positive class before they head home for the night! The classes are based on gentle, mindful movement to help relax the body and mind, de-stress from the day and ease into the night’s activities. Classes are held Thursday afternoons.  

 

4. Winter Schedule: Jan.11th-March 24th

Drop-in Yoga classes will resume at the KP Hall the week of January 11th, 2016!

November news and perspectives!

October 31, 2015

Happy November Yogi’s!

One of my favorite month’s of the year! I love how quiet everything gets when it rains (and even better when it snows!), I love wearing warm, cozy sweaters, I love my toques, I love my rain boots and slushing around in puddles like a kid! I love the storms and the reminder that everything is in flux and always changes! I love the darkness and grey as a contrast to the bright, blue sky as it “allows” me a chance to catch up on indoor activitie...

Fall Yoga News!

September 1, 2015

Welcome to the Fall Yoga Session!

Change in seasons is a great time to reflect and consider changes we are experiencing and how we adapt to our ever changing selves? Yoga is a wonderful practice, but also very challenging as it asks us to be in this unpredictable state of change and learn healthy tools and strategies for coping, managing and ultimately thriving and flowing with the changes. The Yoga practice at once deeply soothing and calming but also a practice that is vul...

Yoga Retreat!

Happy days Yogi’s!

 

I would like to invite you to join me for a weekend of rejuvenation and restoration at the upcoming Yoga for Healing weekend retreat!

Yoga retreats are an amazing way to fully commit to oneself and one’s journey towards wellness and be in a safe space to move deeper into the experience of relaxation and awareness. True healing comes from the inside out and it takes time to remove the layers and begin to open up to our own innate strength and wisdo...

May Yoga News!

May 4, 2015

Hello Yogi’s

Its already May and we are well into Spring! If you are anything like me you have already started on outdoor projects, yard work, gardening, spring cleaning, and taking up favorite Spring sports. As much as I love all this outdoor time, it is wrecking havoc on my body and movement. Most activities tend to be one-side dominant, such as raking with the dominant arm/back, or biking that tends to make the front body contracted and the back body long and often sor...

My lessons on the wave by Kerry

April 11, 2015

My lessons on the wave

One of the adventures I embarked on during my holiday was surfing. Now surfing is one of those sports that is constantly challenging and always humbling for me! I have “surfed” around the world, and every time I attempt to surf I return back to the state of absolute beginner. Maybe its because no matter where you surf, the waves are always changing, the weather is always changing and your level for adaption and fear is always changing., or maybe it...
