Radical Release // Autumn - Sat, Oct 3: Noon - 3pm
It’s time to slow down, reflect, and let go as we weave together two ancient spiritual paths - Earth Medicine (Shamanism) and Yoga. Both of these time-tested practices honour Nature as a great teacher and guide to higher consciousness.
This class offers a profound journey of connection with the material and energetic forces of Autumn that make up our bodies, our planet, and our practice. You will deeply embody self-care, while learning Earth cycle rituals and energy medicine practices to attune and harness the energies of Fall within and around you. The result will be a renewed devotion to practice, which ultimately creates conditions where abundant flow states, a brighter mindset, and radiant vitality can thrive.
Autumn is the season of powerful transition as the days begin to shorten and the temperatures cool. Just as the leaves fall from the trees, it’s time to slow down, reflect, and release any unhelpful patterns from our bodies, hearts, and minds. What needs to stay and what needs to go?
Radical Rest // Winter - Sat, Jan 9, 2021: Noon - 3pm
Sink into the soft darkness of deep rest to find the seeds of New Year intentions! Winter brings quietness, and slow, inward hibernation. The most yin of all the seasons, it is the time to regenerate, ground, and settle into conscious rest. From this place, seeds of intention most true to our heart’s desire are nurtured and nourished. What areas of your life need space and time to rest and digest?
Tuition: $75 each
Angela’s personal yoga journey began in 1995 when she came to Kundalini yoga amidst a healing crisis and time of deep transformation. Since then she has returned to yoga time and again as her home base and grounding point, practicing Ashtanga, Hatha, and Vinyasa before taking her 200hr YTT at Kushala Yoga, followed by Kundalini YTT at Semperviva in Vancouver.
Alongside her yoga practice, Angela has been immersed in traditional healing and shamanism for over 20 years. As an initiated spiritual healer, shamanic practitioner, and teacher, she has been blessed to receive and share the wisdom and practices passed onto her from her Celtic ancestors and Indigenous medicine teachers. With a trauma-informed foundation of Somatic based therapy, Angela has been co-creating and leading transformational ceremonies both in Canada and internationally since 1998. She is excited to bring together the two ancient paths of yoga and shamanism as a unique offering. Her medicine lineages include: Don Martin Pinedo Acuna (Don Benito Qorihuaman) in Peru, Siksika Blackfoot elders in Canada, Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes, and the sacred plant teachers.
