In-Person Classes on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia
After a very successful debut in Winter, 2022, this class series continues in Maggie’s new community on the Sunshine Coast at the beautifully renovated one-room schoolhouse called Sarah Wray Heritage Hall in Garden Bay, Pender Harbour Region.
In this series, we will focus on practices that wake you up and prepare you for your day through mainly standing poses that promote strength balanced with relaxation. We will end each class with a few chair, supine, and/or prone poses with a focus on breath and meditation practices to help you more deeply relax. You must be able to both stand for up to 45 minutes and transfer to the floor yourself to do this class. We will be using chairs as props, but it is not chair Yoga. Please arrive by 9:20am to settle in and prepare for the class.
Please bring a Yoga mat and 2 blankets. We will be using walls and chairs at Sarah Wray Heritage Hall as Yoga props as well as needed. You may also bring Yoga blocks to help you with the poses as well. Maggie will provide Yoga belts for each student for additional support.

Overall Therapeutic Approach
We move from legs & feet (grounding) to hips (emotions) to lower back (empowerment) to upper back, neck & shoulders (love & light) to minds & emotions (spiritual awakening). Physical themes are linked with energetic-psycho-social-spiritual themes each week. You will not only experience asana (postures) but the other limbs of Patanjali's classical 8-limbed system of Yoga, including deep breathing and meditation. Chanting, visualization, and mudras (hand gestures) are used to enhance the therapeutic, healing experience.
Students are asked to provide an intake/self-assessment/waiver before the series to clarify individual therapeutic needs. We also do a check in during the first 5-10 minutes of each class to clarify goals linked to the topic that day, and any other therapeutic considerations for each individual. Maggie creates the class based on this daily needs-assessment and cues modifications accordingly.
Each new student will also be asked to meet with Maggie privately for a 15-30 minute assessment conversation to clarify individual needs and personal goals. This assessment is included in tuition fees.
