Reiki Certification Level 1

with Amie Young

The focus of this restorative yoga gathering is to allow students to deeply relax and rejuvenate the physical, emotional and spiritual body as well as deeply nourish and restore the nervous system. Through nurturing, loving touch and presence students will have an opportunity to truly feel cared for, relaxed and possibly release emotions that get stuck in the physical body.

The practice will consist of fewer yin/restorative poses, taking more time in each pose to allow the healing effects to sink in deeper as well as time to allow the deeper emotional work to take place. Through the use of sacred sounds such as mantras, other healing frequencies and silence individuals will be encouraged to go deeper into themselves and the practice. Our hormones, emotions and spirit will also be soothed and infused with the use of Therapeutic grade essential oils. Come relax, release and heal in this safe and sacred space.

If you are choosing to receive touch, it is suggested to wear loose comfortable clothing and if possible no bras or tight clothing so Rebecca is able to access more of the body for massage with warming oil. Touch is completely voluntary and is not necessary to attend and still receive the healing benefits of the class.

Deep Ying with Massage & Sacred Touch

with  Rebecca Ward

Bask in a powerfully relaxing and refreshingly cleansing vibrational gathering.

This is a 90 minute offering; combining Yin & Restorative Yoga, Vibrational Healing with Sacred Instruments, Massage, Sacred Touch & Aromatherapy.

Using the potent healing power of vibration, Justine Sanderson will be connectively playing a number of Sacred Instruments including the Didgeridoo and Crystal Pyramid with the intention to help move energy that can become stagnant in our energy channels (meridians). This movement of energy is a healing tool that helps to support the function of our major organs; kidneys, liver and heart. The healing sound is re-patterning the link of the physical and emotional bodies. Imbalances such as anxiety, depression, nervousness and headaches will all receive soothing nourishing sound vibrational healing. Students will receive guidance as we move into various Yin/Restorative Yoga poses. Yoga combined with vibrational sound healing further aids the movement of energy through the meridian lines (energetic body) as well as helping to drain stagnation in the lymphatic system, while stimulating movement in the muscles and joints, organs, etc (physical body).

The qualities of a Restorative/Yin practice are to encourage our students to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, to invite healthy stretch and stress on the joints and ligaments and to help release issues which are unconsciously stored in the tissues. While you breathe and relax deeply into these poses, Rebecca will be offering her nurturing Massage and Sacred Touch to further encourage the body to let go and release what no longer is serving you. Carefully selected Essential Oils will be offered in the form of aromatherapy to work with moving the subtle energy through various energy channels, cleansing and detoxifying the body, calming and nourishing the mind and restoring and uplifting the spirit. All you have to bring is an open mind, an open heart and a willingness to surrender.

It is highly recommended one wears loose fitted, comfortable clothing. Though totally optional, it is encouraged to leave the sports bras at home and allow energy to flow freely throughout the whole body. Please note that jewellery, anything metal or round, will prevent the Chi, our subtle energy, from flowing freely throughout as well.

Didgeridoo Yoga

with Justine Sanderson and Rebecca Ward

Enjoy a space to dance without talking, drinking or the nightclub/bar vibe.

Ecstatic dance is a form of self expression through movement. There is no right or wrong way and no experience required. This form of movement is self directed so all levels are welcome! This is a space for you to allow your body to move anyway it feels. No talking on the dance floor allows for a better connection with the music and yourself.

Ecstatic dance is a place where you can start to break through your comfort zone.

These gatherings are about freeing your mind & body, connecting with yourself & others in a safe and healthy space. Ecstatic Dance empowers people of all shapes, sizes & backgrounds to freely express themselves; the liberating atmosphere creates a melting pot of acceptance & the fearlessness with which others move gives permission and courage to dance without inhibition.

All are welcome!

After the dance has nourished our souls, we will continue our gathering to allow the community to nourish our minds. If you are so inclined, bring a vegetarian 'nibbly' to share so we may also nourish our bodies.

Arrive as early as 7pm

Gone & Crystal Singing Bowl Sound Bath

Ecstatic Dance

with Amber Campbell

Relax, reflect upon and absorb the sacred sounds of 5+ Gongs, Crystal and Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Pyramid, Tuning Forks, Chimes and more by joining Justine Sanderson and Jay Robinson for this new 90 minute offering.

The spiritual healing of these instruments occurs through the connection they make between the listener and the world beyond the body and mind as the physical sonic vibrations penetrate our deepest levels of consciousness and create a wide open space in which we find ourselves tuning naturally to the healing vibrations occurring all around us.

Find yourself bathed in sound and open to your own true and deep-seated nature while gaining insight and wisdom from this journey within.

These sacred sounds bring deep relaxation and stimulate the glandular system to a higher level of functioning by reorganizing of the emotional energy and feelings that are tied into the body structure and consequently affect the mind.

This Sound Bath is a meditative experience. Attendees are encouraged to lie down comfortably for the duration of the offering. Yoga mats, bolsters and blankets supplied by Sanctuari. Please bring water and anything else you need to be comfortable.

Investment | $30 plus HST OR $35 plus HST at the door. 

Each of us carries stored memories from past generations that affect our well-being, health and happiness.

Your ancestors are part of you long after they have passed on. Held in your physical body are densities that are epigenetically passed on from one generation to the next. The subtle energy that vibrates in your DNA holds memories of your ancestors pain or trauma once lived. The trauma that they experience is an energetic code that is inherited via the family lineage to you. What is now understood is that the trauma is carried throughout the lineage until one person is ready and available to heal and complete the cycle inherited for future generations. You can heal the cycle.

You can choose to heal yourself, your ancestors, and the Earth.

Vanessa Benlolo invites you to heal the trauma still stored in your generational lineage in order to assist humanity and our Earth, so we can move into the next evolution. Vanessa will share the importance of healing the densities of trauma with an introduction and demonstration of Generational Healing™. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to be selected to receive Generational Healing™ as part of the demonstration.

Vanessa Benlolo is a Professionally Trained & Certified Generational Healer™, Generational Healing™ Teacher and Spiritual Guide. Vanessa Benlolo is also a Biological Engineer who has been interested in the effects and transference of trauma through the bloodline for decades.

Investment | $20 plus HST per person or $25 plus HST at the door.

For those who attend this evening and decide to book a private session, you will receive your investment as a credit towards your private Generational Healing™ Session at Sanctuari.

Enjoy an evening delving into the mystical world of Yoga Nidra. Learn about the origins of this profound practice and how it can become a catalyst for healing on many levels.

 

A regular Yoga Nidra practice has been shown to positively impact blood pressure, immunity, blood sugar, mood, PMS, anxiety, PTSD, sleep, focus, fatigue and general tension. It is said that 1 hour of Yoga Nidra is the equivalent of 4 hours of deep, restorative sleep.

 

Yoga Nidra comes to us from the study of ancient Vedic texts. During practice you lie in Savasana (corpse pose) as you transition into an altered state of awareness. You will be led through four main stages of brainwave activity - beta, alpha, theta and delta, using gentle breath paired with guided meditation. The ‘goal’ of Yoga Nidra is to reach the place between wakefulness and sleep. That being said, you cannot do Yoga Nidra wrong, there is no fail. This tranquil, deep practice is accessible to all bodies of all ages and ability. No experience necessary.

 

This session will involve information sharing, a full Yoga Nidra practice and plenty of time for Q & A.

Chakra Exploration 7 Week Series

with Amie Young

Did you know you have a thin, saranwrap-like sheath around your skeletal muscles? This “sweater” encompassing you from foot to head can either be loosely “knitted” or tightly joined from a lifetime of stress and active living. Myofascial Release is an alternative therapy which helps to soften the tissue to allow for better blood flow, lymph drainage and muscle movement. This means deeper stretches during poses in a Restorative Yoga class.

Myofascial Release also assists in releasing muscle tightness and joint immobility, preparing the muscle’s sheath for deep stretches during a Restorative Yoga class, Chiropractic treatment or Swedish and Thai Yoga Massages.

Through the use of Tennis and TuneUp Balls, TheraBalls and Foam Rollers, participants will explore areas of muscle tightness and joint restriction. Once the light sheath of tissue, which actually begins at the feet and wraps around the muscle belly, is loosened by self-massage, we will relax into some deep and long-held Restorative Yoga postures. Apply a bit of deep breathing and a dash of Mindfulness and we have a recipe for freedom in body, mind and spirit!
