Write from Within: a yin yoga and journaling practice
Wednesday November 7th with Yin Yoga teacher Sarah Jane Smith and writer Claire Sicherman
6pm – 3 hours – $55
Writing is one way of releasing emotion that we hold in our bodies and is a great companion practice to Yin Yoga.
Yin Yoga is slow paced style where the postures are held for longer periods of time to create a moderate stress on the connective tissues of the body with the aim to improve circulation, joint health and flexibility. We use bolsters and blocks for support to encourage a deep physical surrender. This slow approach is inherently meditative and encourages quiet self reflection, self compassion and relaxation.
With Yin Yoga we lay the foundation of openness in our bodies to let held emotions arise and then we journal with writing prompts. These prompts are designed to guide and support, allow for connection, reflection and sharing of writing, if desired.
This session is suitable for all as no experience with yoga or writing is necessary. Please bring a willingness to participate, your favourite pen, a journal and a water bottle. Please dress in layers for your comfort as the studio will be regular room temperature.
If you have any questions about the session or are wondering whether this offering is suitable for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information and to register visit https://www.thenesthotyoga.com/special-classes.html

With many new pipeline projects stalled & existing ones running at capacity, oil patch producers are turning increasingly to rail to transport their product. How safe is this? Should we be concerned? What about ferries and floatplanes? Ferry accidents claim thousands of lives in other countries, but not in Canada. Floatplanes are one of the […]
Raised on Salt Spring by a family that supported the community through a variety of volunteer roles, it was only natural for me to follow that same path of volunteerism. In high school, I was a member of the Youth Coast Guard in Mill Bay. I was a member of the local Land Search and […]

Here is my usual seasonal reminder to collect fallen leaves for garden mulching while they are all around us and to be had for free. Do collect enough to mulch the garden for the winter and also to stockpile for mulching next summer. I store leaves for summer use in bags or covered bins, keeping […]
