Body of Work
Hilary Lindsay brings a quarter century of teaching yoga and dance to the studio with a body of work she describes as Conscious Movement or Slow Yoga:
Here we investigate the anatomy of motion and the construction of breath in action.
Asana is composed as the framework for energy in a way that allows the
students to examine and perceive themselves as powerful forms moving with
grace and awareness.
Here is an opportunity for students who have spent time on their mats and in their bodies to enjoy the luxury of implementing their awareness in a measured but strong yoga class. Butt kickin’ baby boomers; here’s a place to call home and students of any age who have an experience of yoga will enjoy the camaraderie, wisdom and strength.
This is a unique therapeutic combination of vinyasa yoga and massage. The students are encouraged to move energetically but softly into the poses. The teacher and massage therapist observe the students to determine physical restrictions of the body. The student will at times be called off the mat to the side to be worked on by a Thai massage therapist and at other times be worked on at the mat by a traditional or Thai therapist. Adjustments will be made in the poses where possible. This is an excellent class for people with limited time but a desire to have assisted body work and a yoga class as well as the student who desire more information about their bodies. The students will also be given techniques to release restrictions for themselves. This class will be offered as a specialty class and as a series.
A method to move deeply into the subtle body in a powerful way. The student is asked to use the breath to initiate the energy of the spine to intentionally weave between effort and surrender. The limbs are engaged as an extension of the spinal flow. The body and breath will break old patterns as the student finds strength and space in a yoga practice that takes familiar poses off the grid. Corporate Classes: Custom tailored solutions for any group.
“Hilary has the unique ability to explain and teach body mechanics so that even beginners can begin to make positive changes.”
– Sharon Tibbits, physiotherapist, St. Thomas Hospital
A portal for people who have not done Yoga to learn techniques and philosophy. It is also an opportunity for more experienced students to refine their poses is a less challenging forum. All level students are welcome to experience Active Yoga for the first time or as if it is the first time.
“I’m in better shape than when I was running 8 to 12 miles a day. I feel beautiful, taller, more defined, energized and emotionally open from this class.”
– Sharon Gilchrist, musician / singer
