ROLL, RELEASE, RESTORE™  Sat. January 19, 2019:  2pm-4pm.  Max 4 participants at the 9to5 Movement Studio. $45/person
Back by popular demand:  Roll out the soft tissue and muscles in your body, release tension and recover from muscle overuse/repetitive movements and restore your balance and equilibrium in your body and mind with restorative yoga postures and guided deep breath work!
Self-myofascial release work is a recovery method that has many benefits including increased circulation, heightened neurological function, injury prevention, and performance enhancement. Using foam rollers, yoga therapy balls and tennis balls, we will uncover the tender areas or trigger points in our bodies and roll them out to release tension in tight muscles, improve inflexible areas, remove muscle spasms and decrease soft tissue density. Then we will move into supported, restorative yoga postures, (with the aid of props), and focus on deep, restorative breath to achieve physical, mental and emotional relaxation and bring balance to body and mind.

Vernol Equinox Ceremony and Practice Wednesday, March 20, 7-9pm at Pur Yoga Toronto.  Max 25 participants. $35/member, $40/non-member
What wisdoms are being brought forward with you from the dark of winter…what awakenings in yourself?  Join Toni Blay in this special ceremony and practice to celebrate the balance and union between the Light and Dark cycles of the year, between the Sun and the Moon, between Yang and Yin, Fire and Water. From this dynamic joining of opposites comes new life, transformation and manifestation.  This is the beginning of the potent growing period, the season of manifestation. Together let’s build the transference of energy from the inside to the outside, from Spirit into Matter. Let what is within flow towards manifestation. The alchemy of the Spring Equinox represents the joining of opposite forces to create a blending of energy which is alive, potent and expansive. Wherever you place your energy you will see growth.  So let’s consciously breathe life into the seeds we have been nurturing through the winter and early spring.  Special 2 hour Spring Equinox Ceremony, breath work, meditation and practice.
