It's been a busy fall, with a lot of new and exciting things going on at Wavelengths Yoga.
I am heading up a research study using yoga as a tool for management of the symptoms of Cystic Fibrosis in adults. The study is taking place with the support of the respirology and physiotherapy teams at Toronto's St. Michael's hospital.
This week, I'm teaching yoga with The Norwood District Figure Skating Club, at their popular Leading Edge skating clinic. I will be leading an off-ice yoga session, focusing on both the physical and mental aspects of performance and competition.
In January I'll be leading a raw food/yoga retreat with Louise Racine at her amazing retreat centre in Norwood (www.thirteenmoons.ca). Louise's fabulous cookbook is for sale at the studio for $30 and makes a great Christmas gift for the food lover on your list.
Together with CAST Canada (Come and Sit Together) we're offering a program for front line helping professionals, scheduled early in February. The program, entitled "EXHALE" is designed to help professionals deal with the inherent stress of helping others in crisis. More info is at www.cast-canada.ca
Later in February, we welcome Dolphi Wertenbaker from New York to teach on the Bhagavad Gita, as part of our 200 hour teacher training program. There is limited space for other yoga teachers and teachers-in-training in this class. See www.wavelengthsyoga.com/workshops.html for details.
Our teacher training program is in full swing with a phenomenal group of students. Plans are underway for our next program beginning September, 2012, and the dates will be available soon. If you're interested in joining our 200 hour program, see www.wavelengthsyoga.com/teacher_training.htm.
For those who have completed the 200 hour training, an advanced training is being offered in 2013 to bring students to the highest level of teacher training recognized by Yoga Alliance (500 hours). In February, we welcome Dolphi Wertenbaker from New York to teach on the Bhagavad Gita. There is limited space for other yoga teachers in this class. See www.wavelengthsyoga.com/workshops.html for details.
You may have noticed that the Wavelengths building has received a facelift with a brand new paint job this fall. We are also planning some other upgrades for the building this fall and winter, including the installation of radiant in-floor heating.
With all this on the go, I'm happy to say that the studio will be closed from December 16 - January 16 for a much needed break and for studio renovations to take place. A limited number of massage and yoga therapy appointments will be available during that time. Call or email to check availability.
