Gentle restorative to calm the nervous system, yin to squeeze out stress, nidra to rest deeply, and dru to swirl around with your energy. 


fully woven is offering an embodied mindfulness series in keeping with the seasons. We will be exploring seasonal themes through yin and restorative yoga, meditation, story-telling, and journaling.

We practice together on Wednesdays and Fridays 7PM – 9PM.

The Seasons:

Autumn Series (Sept – Nov) is themed around harvest, taking stock, and storing up.

Winter Series (Dec – Feb) is themed around laying fallow, introspection, and getting cozy.

Spring Series (Mar – May) is themed around emergence, hope, and renewal.

Summer Series (June – Aug) is themed around abundance, golden days, and taking it easy.

Each series is limited to four participants and registration is required. Contact me to register.


Our Practices:

Yin yoga focuses on our connective tissues (ligaments, bones, and joints). Although this is a passive practice there remains the challenge of staying present with some potentially uncomfortable sensations. Shapes will be sustained for 3 – 7 minutes and tend to remain close to the ground.

Restorative yoga soothes the nervous system. This is a completely passive class with the use of props to ensure minimal muscle engagement and full relaxation. Bring your favourite pillow and blanket — we’re going to be as content as a basket full of kittens.

Meditation will be in the tradition of Vipassana (or insight) meditation and practiced in silence either in slow purposeful movements or in a comfortable static shape.

Journaling is useful for tapping into our deeper, intuitive wisdom. For those times when words fail us we can still access that wisdom via stream of consciousness journaling, which combines using our non-dominant hand, collage, and other methods of free-form creative expression. This is one technique that taps into the creative and healing power of our right brain — the side which specializes in visual/spatial perception as well as emotional and intuitive expression.


Allergy Considerations:

  • These series are offered in a home with two small dogs and a cat, and while they will not be in the room during our practices this is their home and allergens may be present.
  • I have a severe scent allergy; please refrain from wearing and/or bringing any scented products into our practice space.

Is my registration transferable?

No, your registration is for you and you alone. If someone you know would like to attend have them contact me for an invitation.

Please let me know in advance if you can (or cannot) attend your classes. Because this is a small home studio I do not allow any walk-ins or last minute drop-ins. If you show up unannounced, you run the risk of being turned away at the door. Sessions here fill up quickly — reserve your spot in advance! If you reserve a spot but are inconsistent with your attendance, your spot may be given to another participant. If this happens, you may put your name on a waiting list for upcoming openings.
