Walking well can be linked to 'good' posture. Good posture isn't about thrusting your shoulders and head back. It comes from within and is all about the ability of your body to transfer load through well stacked bones. 'Good' posture is comfortable and dignified without being stiff or overly defined. "Good" posture will change depending upon the As Moshe Feldenkrais says: 'good posture is about being "able to move in any direction – six cardinal directions- without preparation or hesitation”
In this 6 week series you will explore simple, gentle movements and corrective exercises where your posture will be explored. Throughout we will discuss the components of an effective walk. We will only walk inside the studio so that we can take it slowly and help each other out. Each class will include a handout with a variety exercises provided so that you can individualize your own journey.
Park your car several blocks from the studio so that you can be aware of how you walk to and from class. Perhaps get a glimpse of yourself in a store window to see what your upright stance is. A minimum of six students need to register for this series to proceed. A maxiumum of 8 students will be admitted into the series.If paying online is not an option please call 613 267 7148 to pre-register.

Intuition Training 101 with Parmatma
3 week Series
Tuesdays, October 15 - 29
7:00 - 9:00 pm
$75 (Includes HST)
Our soul is always with us, giving us messages from its subtle knowledge base. Its knowledge base is the Oneness of all reality. Our sensitivity can be trained through meditation, pranayama breathing techniques and deep listening to sense that reality and tune into it through one or more of our senses. This is our intuition and it is greatly needed now as we are beginning to live in turbulent times when inclusivity, justice and integrity of principles are at stake.
Every human has the capacity to quiet their mind, experience universal energy and differentiate the thought patterns that come from family/cultural conditioning and those that come from a higher frequency of soul’s purpose and destiny. As we learn to stop separating ourselves and begin to enjoy and celebrate that sense of oneness, we come into communication with our own intuitive processes which are full of guidance, creativity and a sense of inner knowing.
Bring a notebook. No background in yoga is needed. This training is done in a circle and to share content with each other is always optional but we will share and support each other regarding our means of getting results. We will also practice together techniques which help dissolve emotional patterning which no longer serves us and techniques to let go of belief systems which get in the way of Soul’s purpose.
