EASE is a series of workshops involving yoga, movement, breathwork + meditation allowing our bodies to deeply rest + restore.
EASE is accessible physically + financially.
I created EASE because finding a gentle yoga practice helped me a lot + I wanted to share this practice with others. Gentle yoga classes provided me with a newfound feeling of rest. There is something so peaceful about taking a slow breath in a room full of others doing the same thing.
I wanted everyone to feel welcome, there had been so many times I wanted to attend classes + workshops but didn't. Whether it was that I couldn't afford it financially, an injury allowing me to do only half the poses, or being so new to the practice + feeling like I'd be lost.
So, EASE was born. EASE is about making yoga + body based practices accessible financially and physically.
EASE started as a series of workshops hosted in a friend's sweet little studio in Toronto. I was able to make the workshop on a Pay What You Can system, a system of generosity + community.
I took all the trainings I could to learn more about the human body, it's variations + how to adapt a practice to each individual. I give plenty of options for each pose. Everyone is welcome here no matter what variation of the pose you take, or if you do the pose at all. All bodies, all abilities are welcome.
I incorporate some optional gentle adjustments + massage, because touch can be so calming + healing. I also offer essential oils in class. I made some playlists for us with sweet tunes + have been lucky enough to have special guests like certified aromatherapists, reiki healers + other yoga teachers.
EASE has moved online along with us during COVID times, between online zoom workshops + the series of audio practices on this site.
I'm so grateful to be able to share this practice with you. I hope you enjoy!
*Making zoom workshops accessible can be a little tricky given not being able to see you, so I am always around to chat, or video call before class to discuss extra options. If you want to participate in any EASE workshop but have concerns, contact me. We will make something work, or I will provide you with a private pwyc zoom workshop to suit your needs.
