Teachers on Tour: We bring the Ashram to Vancouver Island!

Join us on our 2017 spring tour!

Breath: A Doorway to Potential

Breath is the key to quiet the mind, create space and allow clarity to emerge. Between the ingoing and outgoing breath, there is a centre of stillness, a place of deep mystery and potential. Awaken your intuition and discover what emerges. Find ways to make this internal balance present in your life.

Date: Friday, May 26, 7-9 pm
Cost: $30
Location: Oliver Woods Community Centre, 6000 Oliver Road, Nanaimo

Conscious Living in Times of Change

Bring a journal, pen, yoga mat (if you wish) and lunch; wear comfortable clothes

We live in a world of fast-paced, continual change – processing endless input and meeting demands for flexibility and quick decisions. As life speeds up, we can lose perspective and a deep sense of meaning. Yogic practices are designed to bring us back to our ‘grounding’ and connection to purpose. Join us for breath, relaxation, visualisation and reflection – a time of affirming what gives your life meaning.
