Quiet down, settle down, and relax deeply. Join Ayesha Basi and Alex Ure for this 2-part inward journey of restorative yoga and meditation. Restorative yoga and meditation have the same end goals, to use the tools of quiet and stillness to connect to our truest selves. Paired together, the powerful effect is deep inner stillness, relaxation and a sense of clarity and calm as we connect to our true essence, values and ways of being. These two modalities are important tools to the juxtaposition of our increasingly yang lifestyles, and both work to draw our body and mind back to a more balanced state. We will gather for two sessions that are 2 hours long each. Each session will include both theory and practice of restorative yoga and meditation. Leave with calming tools that can be integrated in your yoga practice and your life, on an everyday basis. All levels are welcome. We encourage you to bring a light blanket, something to cover your eyes (e.g. eye pillow if you have one, or a small towel etc.) & wear comfortable clothes. Dates: Saturday March 7th & 14th Time: 3:30pm – 5:30pm Investment: $80 / $70 member Location: Preston @_alexure @movement_and_breath #yoga #ottawayoga #yogaottawa #yogaworkshop #restorativeyoga #meditation #myyogatown #townie #ottawayogateachers #yogatown #igersofottawa #ottawa #stittsville #sweatlife #fitness #motivation #fitnessmotivation #yogi #photography #life #instagood #yogalife #yogaeverydamnday #lifestyle #yogatowneverydamnday

Price:
Drop-In Price: $20 for 1 class
5 Class Pack: $80 for 5 classes (equates to $16 per class)
20 Class Pack: $280 for 20 classes (equates to $14 per class)

The bios for the 19 instructors listed on SoulSpeak Ottawa’s website (find them at soulspeakyoga.ca/bios/) all sound so passionate about their practices and excited to help you experience the joys and benefits that yoga has to offer! SoulSpeak’s schedule is also quite impressive as some days (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays) they offer classes as early as 6:15am, and some days (Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays) they offer classes all the way until 10:00pm! Be sure to check out soulspeakyoga.ca/shcedule/ to see the rest of the weeks’ schedules and to learn about those classes offered more in-depth.

Astanga Yoga

Address:
200 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K2P 1W8

Price:
Drop-In Price: $18 for 1 class
5 Class Pack: $75 (equates to $15 per class)
10 Class Pack: $150 (equates to $15 per class)
20 Class Pack: $280 (equates to $14 per class)
30 Class Pack: $380 (equates to $12.67 per class)

Astanga Yoga really impressed me with the amount of Drop-In class pack options they offer, all at such affordable prices too! 30 classes may sound like a lot, but for yoga fanatics who want the flexibility to drop in whenever’s convenient for their schedules, $12.67 a class is such a fantastic find. Astanga offers drop-in classes Mondays-Fridays usually from 6:00am until well into the evening (ranges from 6:15pm-9:00pm) and although their weekend class times are limited, it does not mean they lack in quality.

Look who we saw back in the Mysore room this week… . We’re so happy to see @_like_a_ray_of_light back practicing with us after her second leg surgery. We are stronger than we think, which importantly includes listening to and honoring our bodies with the choices we make. Adjusting and readjusting our practice to life’s events, be it an injury or any other traumatic incident, is difficult as most of us want to do everything again all at once. Yet strength and grace is built one breathe and day at a time. Andrea is a living example of this. . . Hope you’re enjoying moon day today yogis. . . #astangayoga #astangayogaottawa #ottawayoga #mysoremagic #ashtanga #ashtangalove #practiceandalliscoming
