OTHER WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE:

  • Finding the Calm in the Chaos

If you are feeling overwhelmed by life, and need to stop and reassess, this is the workshop for you. The purpose is to create a concrete kit of resources you can turn to, and use, in your daily life when you are feeling overwhelmed; because lets face it, life is chaos for everyone these days. Whether it’s career, education, family or relationships, it seems like no one has enough time for themselves (and therefore no chance to recharge). If you need help finding or regaining more balance in you life-style this workshop is for you. We will work with time-management, goal-setting, self-care ideas, journaling and practice some meditation and yoga techniques you can use at home.

  • Meditation & Visioning

This mini-day-retreat includes exploring a variety of meditation techniques (breathing, gazing, walking, chanting and silent meditation). The purpose is to find a technique that works best for you. We will also play with affirmations, visioning, and do some reflective writing.

  • A Journey Through Self-Care

Self-care is something many people struggle with. The thought of doing things just for yourself can feel selfish and even leaves some people with a deep sense of guilt. This workshop is designed to undo those negative feelings about putting yourself first, and learning to nurture yourself in healthy ways.

This is a half-day retreat of self-reflection, self-discovery, writing, discussion, and yoga. We will discuss ways to prioritize our duties, and manage our time better to create balance of giving and receiving.

  • Creating Your Own Personal Yoga Practice

Being self-taught, this is one of my favourite workshops.  My passion is connecting people to their own bodies, so they can tune into themselves and move intuitively as the body needs and move into a place of wholeness physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically.

This workshop covers the basic science of yoga and the 6 movements of the spine, and how you can build your own unique practice to do anywhere you go!

  • Journaling For Self-Discovery

I have been writing since I was 16. Over the last few years, I have been rereading journals and burning them, or shredding them, and learning great things about myself, about the activity my mind, and patterns in my life.  At this point I  have purged over 40 journals, and have easily another 40 to go.  I believe everyone should journal, although I understand it is not for everyone. The true power lies in reviewing the journals once in a while, as there is often insights or lessons to be learned and used to move forward in our life.

This workshop is a way to connect with your voice, your thoughts and learning to express yourself in ways to help your individual growth.

Workshops at St.Mark’s Church cost $60 and run for approximately 3 hours (12:30-3:30pm).

Workshops can be booked for groups of 6 or more.
