When we have a fridge full of food, and dinner on our tables, we don’t often think about the inequality of so many that go without food. Families and individuals in your own neighborhood. Please join us to raise foods, funds and awareness for this very important organization in our community.
 
This class is by donation and 100% of all proceeds will go to the Lanark County Food Bank, we are also accepting non perishable food items, as a donation, for our food basket collecting items for the food bank.

The Chakras: An introduction to the wheels of life

Join us from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 1st, as Simonne LaRonde and Barbara Long guide us on this journey through the chakras.
The chakras connect our physical and spiritual planes. By working with these seven energy centres you can achieve better health, intuition, personal power and more.  Barbara and Simonne will be guiding you through meaningful discussion, practices to support you in understanding your own relationship and inherent wisdom of the chakras.

Using the research of the renowned scholar, Anodea Judith, we will explore each of the the chakras, including their locations, colours, functions and importance and then use exercises, meditations and visualizations to work with each one.

Please wear comfortable clothing and be prepared to dive a little deeper into yourself. We recommend you bring along a water bottle, and a paper and pen if you’d like to take notes.

Who are your facilitators:

Our Beginners Core Series Starts This Wednesday

We wanted to remind you our Get to know your core – a mini series focused on core strengthening with Lynne,  begins this Wednesday night, May 1st.
 
The core muscles are the foundation for all movement and posture. Without a strong core the potential for injury from exercise and everyday movement increases.
 
Learn which muscles are involved in the core and how to connect them to movement as well as increase their strength – and in turn your overall strength!
 
This mini series is suitable for everyone, from beginners to advanced practitioners. No experience necessary. We will gently move through different exercises each week to give you a good understanding on how your core functions with movement and improves posture.
This series will be taught by Lynne Jenkins  as part of our Wednesday night mini series classes.  It will be held from 6:00 – 7:15 pm, May 1st, 8th and the 15th.
 
You can use your regular class pass or drop in for any of the sessions.
 
Please contact the studio directly at 613-451-2891 or email info@suryadaya.ca, if you have any questions. Sign up is not necessary, but please come early to settle into the space.

Mindfulness Meet – Up Tonight, April 24th, from 6:00 – 7:15 pm

Join us tonight from 6:00 – 7:15 pm for our monthly mindfulness meet-up. The class will consist of gentle movement, followed by a mindfulness based meditation and an extended relaxation with the gong.

Amber will be leading the class this evening.

These sessions are by donation. Either bringing in a non-perishable food item for our food basket for the lanark county food bank, or we have our karma yoga donation box out for our SEVA fund.  Our SEVA fund supports local families and organizations we believe in.  All money raised this month will continue to go towards the McComb family, who are presently supporting their 9 year old daughter as she goes through chemotherapy treatment for kidney cancer.

No donation is too small, sometimes the pure intention of our practice towards something or someone we believe in is a gift beyond any monetary amount – a gift from the heart. We hope to see you tonight. Preregistration is not necessary, but we recommend you arrive early to settle into our space.
