IN-STUDIO CLASSES

Welcome back to our new Fit Journey studio at 396 Pacific Avenue, Suite 205! It’s a bright, open and calm space, and we’re happy to see you back in person!

 

All In-Studio classes will be run as ‘pre-registered series’, there will be no drop-ins.

 

Following the Ontario government’s guidelines and just plain common sense, we’ll have the following protocols in place:

  1. Daily sanitization of floors, all touch surfaces and equipment.
  2. Wear your mask as you enter and depart. You may choose to keep your mask on once you’re in your designated spot.
  3. Present Covid-19 Proof of Vaccine and photo ID the first time you join us.
  4. Use hand sanitizer as you enter and depart.
  5. Do not come to class if you’re experiencing any signs or symptoms of Covid-19, or if you’re feeling ill and contagious in other ways.
  6. Stay in your designated spot for the full class. If you need to use the washroom down the hall, stay 6′ away from other participants as you move through the room, and of course, wear your mask.

Welcome back!

Hatha Yoga is accessible to one and all, and is the basis of all our yoga practices, including Yoga for Runners, Gentle Yoga and Yoga for Stiff Bodies.

RELEASE TENSION: MOVE WITH EASE: FIND YOUR CENTER
Some say they can’t practice yoga because they aren’t flexible. Hmm, that’s a little like saying you don’t need a shower because you’re dirty!

Come to yoga with a willing heart, patience, diligence and your sense of humour!

If you have a chronically tight body, or are recovering from an injury, or are dealing with a lot of stress and anxiety . . . this practice is for you. This yoga practice takes you from exactly where you are. Wear comfortable clothes and come with a Beginners Mind.

You’ll quickly find ease and balance in your mobility.

Yoga includes many tools, including breathing well, managing the mind, working with the physical body to cue the other bodies (mental, emotional, spiritual) to become more flexible as well! Please bring your own props: yoga mat, yoga belt, yoga block.

Yin / Restorative Yoga

Denise Ho; 75 minutes

Some call this dessert! Delicious Yin & Restore
Combine the quiet yet powerful practice of Yin Yoga with the healing, relaxing practice of Restorative Yoga for a delicious, centering result. Yin poses focus on the connective tissues and muscles of the legs, hips, back, chest & shoulders. Restorative poses are fully supported with soft props. Thai Yoga massage techniques from Denise further open the energy lines to encourage release and healing. This practice is especially beneficial for those with tight muscles and joints, or who are experiencing anxiety or fatigue, or who simply need to step away from the intensity of life. Cost: Yoga Class Card
This is dessert for me! After caring for everyone else in my day, I can come and attend to my needs, love the deep holds of Yin and crave the wonderful relaxation of Restorative.”  Leslie

Slow Stretch Serenity

Denise Ho

Explore luxurious flows, moving with your breath.
This slow-paced class allows you to explore luxurious flows with pauses to feel the stretch and notice your body adapting. Ease into a posture, find the courage to explore, and move slowly out. Benefit from full, deep inhalations and exhalations as your strengthen and stretch. Fully supported Restorative Yoga ends the practice to ensure deep relaxation. Cost: Yoga Class Card
If you love Gentle Yoga and would like a little more, this is it!

Vinyasa Flow

Niki Ainslie

intensity and recovery Wed 7:15 - 8:15 pm
Vinyasa Flow creates harmony with your body, your breath, and your mind.

Vinyasa Flow is a style of practice whereby there are fluid transitions between postures with a conscious use of the inhale, and the exhale.
When we synchronize our breathing with our body’s movement patterns, it cues many of our internal systems to come into balance as well, including the busy system of the mind.

This is a Level II Hatha practice, which will safely challenge your mobility, stability, strength and flexibility. Various pranayama (breathing practices) will be incorporated. A satisfying practice to clear the cobwebs, build heat to purify, and we’ll finish with a lovely supported Savasana.

You’ll leave the practice feeling relaxed, refreshed and strong in your body and mind.

COST: Yoga Class Card

Seamless movement with the breath, which makes you sweat . . . and leave with a yoga high!” Kathy

Candlelight Restorative

Michele Heuff; 75 minutes

One Wonderful Friday evening, each month
This Friday evening Restorative practice will help you switch gears from high speed to low, and tap into your body’s natural ability to release and restore.  In this safe and nurturing environmetm you can let go of your tension, calm your mind, and soothe your nervous system.

Give your nervous system a much-needed reboot!

Restorative yoga and props go hand in hand to carefully support the body as you ease into stillness and relaxation.  The long holds in each pose not only feel amazing, but also help to activate the body’s natural healing systems.  The perfect recipe to melt away accumulated stress from your week!

Soft illumination of candles helps calm the mind and move us toward a more meditative tate.

This practice will help rejuvenate you and cultivate a shift in your physical and emotional well-being.  We’ll end our practice with the beautifully restorative sound of a crystal bowl, and Savasana.

Cost: Yoga Class Card

Once a month, I treat myself to this calm and peaceful practice on a Friday evening. At the end, I’m so relaxed that I float out of the studio! BA
