Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a guided experience that encourages deep rest for the body, mind and emotions. The practice is done laying down or sitting comfortably in a chair. All you need to do is listen; no physical exertion or yoga experience is required. This practice works on the deeper layers of ourselves like the emotional and energetic bodies as well as the subconscious mind. This effortless practice uses a heart-felt intention, relaxation techniques as well as observation and awareness to promote clarity and respite from the tensions of everyday life. Yoga Nidra can help to improve sleep, creativity, problem solving, connection to one’s self and can also lead to greater freedom in our reactions and habitual patterns.

Intermediate Class

Intermediate: Supported Alignment Beyond Basics yoga class is place to explore depth in yoga asana (postures). Familiarity with a wide range of yoga poses is required as we go beyond the foundational aspects into greater detail and work with props in a more sophisticated way. Students are asked to challenge themselves while listening to their body’s messages. This class explores back bending postures and safe inversions (or appropriate alternatives) in an intelligent, curious and practical manor.

Active Aging

Active Aging yoga class is geared towards mature adults who wish to keep practising or start practising yoga. We work on building strength and stamina in postures, stretching tight areas of the body, and develop balance and concentration all while safely exploring range of motion in the joints. Students are asked to challenge themselves appropriately while listening to their body’s messages. We use props (bolsters, blocks, straps, chairs, the wall, etc.) to gain access to the work and understand the essence of the poses. Modifications are provided to accommodate different body situations (injuries, surgeries, chronic conditions etc.) to ensure that the class is accessible for everyone. Being able to get up and down from the floor is an asset in this class as we begins and end there, but adaptations can be made.

Restorative Class

Restorative Yoga is a practice about finding ease in postures and cultivating a calm internal environment. Props are used to facilitate physical comfort so that we can experience stillness in the poses to find deep rest. This practice is great for building nervous system resilience and learning how to downshift our internal state to help mitigate the effects of stress. Dress warmly and comfortably for this class and feel free to bring a blanket for an extra cozy experience.

Deanna Fahlman classes

Breathwork Series

Stay tuned for Deanna’s 2024 spring sessions!

Intro to Breathwork

Functional breathwork focuses on intentional and controlled breathing patterns to enhance various aspects of health, such as reducing stress, improving mental clarity, and promoting relaxation. This practice uses the power of the breath in a practical way to enhance overall well-being.

Experiential breathwork, on the other hand, facilitates a deeper and often transformative experience. We use the conscious connected breath to explore and experience altered states of consciousness, process emotions and memories, and access deeper levels of creativity and awareness. This practice also results in deep healing and integration.

5 Reasons Why You Should Practice Breathwork:

  1. Experience immediate effects — no need to spend weeks or months wondering if “it’s working”. Feel the benefits within minutes.
  2. Boost your energy levels — this happens naturally through the breath. Skip the coffee!
  3. Calm your nervous system, quickly — within a few breaths, you’ll notice a shift toward calmness.
  4. Stay engaged — no chance of getting bored as each breathwork session offers a unique experience and takes you on a different journey.
  5. Improve your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health — breathwork benefits are off the charts, positively improving your entire well-being.

New to breathwork?

A full breathwork session is a rejuvenating 60 minutes of breath, connection, meditation, and community. We’ll breathe for about 30 minutes using the conscious connected breath (CCB) from our comfy nest of blankets and pillows, listening to soothing music and guidance cues. The session finishes with a grounding exercise and an optional space to share your experience or journal to further process.

How to participate

We’re excited to offer two ways to experience breathwork!

  1. Live in-studio
  2. Live online from the comfort of your home via Zoom.

Important Notes

  • Props are available or bring your own yoga mat, blanket, pillow/bolster.
  • Once the breathwork series starts, text/call Deanna at (306) 716-9997 for drop-in availability. To save your drop-in spot(s), pre-book them online. You can also bring cash to class – $44/drop-in.
  • If you suffer from any acute health conditions, are pregnant, had a recent surgery, or are on medication, check with your medical practitioner prior to breathing with us.
