Yoga in High Park August 30th: Generate Fitness August 25, 2015 12:27
HUGE thank you to Monica from Power Yoga Canada for such a fun and challenging class last Sunday!
This week we have Denise from Generate Fitness...
In 2011, she completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Yogaspace. She studied Hatha Yoga with Patricia White in the tradition of Vanda Scaravelli, consciously balancing effort and rest. She also studied Vinyasa Yoga with Kathryn Beet, focusing on finding ease in movement with the breath. Since then, she has completed a Restorative Yoga Certificate with Hali Schwartz, Yin Yoga with Cathy Kennan and Reiki Master Certificate with Stephanie Norwich. Contrary to popular belief, Yoga is not the practice of being flexible. Yoga is the practice of uniting the mind and the body. It teaches us to be present, to connect with our own thoughts and to realize our own potential. As a student, she is always amazed at how her yoga practice has strengthened her body and provided clarity of mind. She hopes to inspire her students to find that strength, stability and focus.Denise unrolled her first yoga mat over 10 years ago at a local gym to compliment her fitness routine. After that first Power Yoga class, she was hooked. As her practice developed, she enjoyed the benefits of various intense styles of yoga. Her journey with yoga, suddenly too a sharp turn with a cancer diagnosis in 2008. During her treatment, she began to explore different styles of yoga and other healing modalities to cope with stress and anxiety. She has since developed an interest in gentle and restorative yoga styles and the desire to share her healing journey with others.
If you hang back after class, we have a tasty treat for you...
Toronto based Kombucha company "Yogasoda" will be at Yoga in High Park to give you a probiotic dose of deliciousness post-yoga class.
When we discovered Kombucha, it was love at first taste. We began brewing in our home immediately and started to spread the message to anyone who would listen. After feeling the benefits of drinking Kombucha on a regular basis, we are determined to share it with the world, and that is when we began our idea for YogaSoda.
Yoga is the union of mind, body and spirit. By nourishing our bodies with natural drinks like Kombucha, we bring ourselves closer to that alignment. YogaSoda is a union - a union of good taste and good health. Cheers to your health!
