Announcing Fall Iyengar Yoga Courses

Greetings and happy summer everyone.

I’d like to invite you to join me for some great courses coming up this fall. I’ll be continuing to teach my regular Sunday and Tuesday evening classes, but am also adding in two new classes, Saturday mornings at Yoga on 7th and Friday mornings at Ocean and Crow. Please continue reading below for the details, and let me know if you plan to join in for any of the 3 complimentary trial classes I’m offering in early September. These sample classes are a great way to try out the classes and see if they are a good fit, introduce friends and family to the practice, and get your foot back in the door after some time off.

Hope to see you on the mat soon.

Best,

Meghan

Finally, if you feels so inclined…and if my teaching and/or these two studios have had a positive impact on your life, then I’d like to ask you for a favor.

Both Ocean and Crow and Yoga on 7th are independently run with very small budgets for advertising. And because we don’t have reception areas, it’s hard for people to walk in the door and have a look around. So we continue to be “discovered” by people who have lived in the neighbourhood and walked past the studio for years.

Can I ask for your help in creating some good word of mouth for us on the Internet? It doesn’t take much time, and every bit helps. I know that when I see positive reviews I feel more comfortable about trying out a new place.

Here are three easy ways you can give the studio a helping hand.

  1. You can like our page on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/Yogaon7th/ or  https://www.facebook.com/oceanandcrowyoga/

Once you’re there, look on the left hand side of the page and you’ll see a list with “Reviews” midway down. Click on that and it will open a screen with an invitation to “Tell people what you think” under some greyed out stars. That’s your spot to rate us and leave a review.

2. To leave a review on Google, search for Yoga on 7th or Ocean and Crow.

Google’s information on the studio will show up on the right hand side of the page. Scroll down and you’ll find a button to click to write a review. You can write something, add a photo if you like, or just give us a star rating, one to five.

3. To leave a review on Yelp, go to: https://www.yelp.ca/biz/yoga-on-7th-vancouver or  https://www.yelp.ca/biz/ocean-and-crow-yoga-space-vancouver

Your chance to leave a review is at the top of the page.

Thank you for helping us out.

Summer Yoga Sessions

I wanted to thank those of you who came to check out “Ancestralizing the Present: Protocols and Practices in Northwest Coast First Nations Dance” at the Dance Centre on June 10th.  It was a huge honour to perform in this event. These companies will be sharing more collaborative work in Stanley Park July 15th.

I also wanted to thank those who joined Siobhan Sloane-Seale and I for the “Spring into Summer” workshop June 11th at Yoga on 7th.

It was a full weekend of culture, music and movement.

The next session of summer yoga courses are coming up and I’d like to invite you to a complimentary “Yoga on Us” class I’ll be teaching soon at Ocean and Crow. It’s a sample of the work we do in the “From the Ground Up” course which starts up July 9th.

The complimentary class is Wednesday June 21st from 6-7:15pm, please invite your friends and do register in advance as space is limited:  http://oceanandcrow.ca/node/1947

 

The next session at Yoga on 7th begins Tuesday June 20th-July 25th. It is $96 for the 6-weeks and $20 to drop in.

If you are interested in this session you can register directly with me either through an e-transfer sent to meghangoodman@hotmail.com or in person at the studio with cash or cheque.

Looking forward to some summer yoga with you.

I’ve got two weekly classes coming up this spring.

Join me for a 6-week progressive series on Sunday evenings from 5:45-7:15pm at Ocean and Crow yoga. From the Ground Up is a 6-week course designed to create a strong foundation for students new to yoga while offering opportunities for those with a regular practice to deepen their understanding of the poses and how they work best in our own bodies. May 14- June 25 (no class June 11th). 

Sign up by May 6th to save on late registration fees. 

Register here:  https://oceanandcrow.frontdeskhq.com/pack_products/396670

Week 1: Feet, Ankles, and Knees: Learn how correct actions and alignment in the lower part of the body can help improve balance, stability, and joint health.

Week 2: Legs and Hips: Discover how the standing poses can build energy, stamina, and confidence while better understanding how to open and strengthen the hips.

Week 3: Abdomen and Lower Back: Focus on strengthening the abdomen to keep your lower back healthy in yoga practice and in life.

Week 4: Upper Back and Shoulders: Experience how the use of the arms and legs can support the opening of the chest. Find strength and space in the shoulders to prepare the body for inversions.

Week 5: Reverse the flow: Learn safe inversion practices for your own level of experience. Through preparations and the use of props, students will learn how to build strong foundations and find optimal alignment in order to receive the many benefits of turning upside down.

Week 6: Restoration and breathing: The final week of this session will offer a chance to work with the subtle body through gentle postures and exploration of pranayama, the art and science of the breath.

I’ll also be teaching Tuesday night classes from 7:30-9pm at Yoga on 7thThis lovely studio is equipped with wonderful props to enhance the practice, such as the ropes wall featured below.

The new 6-sessions starts May 9th-June 13th and June 20-July 25th

6-week sessions cost $96, if you sign up for all 12 weeks the price is $180. Drop-ins $20       Cash, cheque or e-transfers accepted.

Contact me at meghangoodman@hotmail.com to register.

Signing up for a session, even when it’s only six weeks long, is a commitment. So for students who have never come to Yoga on 7th before there is a new offer of $50 for 5 classes in two weeks. In two weeks you’ll get a quick sense of the studio and its teachers, and you can check us out at a steep discount on yoga and Pilates classes.

I also recently wrote an article about home practice; finding the time, establishing a routine and making it a habit. Perhaps you will find inspiration over the holidays and between sessions to continue with your practice at home.
