The Art of Tai Chi

Oct 14 '17 - to - Oct 14 '17

Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that, today, is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.

In this workshop you will develop an understanding of the
ancient art of Tai Chi, the balance of Yin and Yang and the development of Chi through the breath. You will be guided through a series of movements that flow together as a moving meditation. This practice helps to bring peace of mind, balance to internal energies, lowers heart rate and promotes relaxation. As a way of exercising it can be done as long as one lives.

Tai Chi reinforces the notion also found in yoga, that what is most certain, is the present moment.

Suitable for all skill levels.

A Mindful Home | A Workshop For Individuals, Parents, Partners, Families & Roomies

Sep 09 '17 - to - Sep 09 '17

Mindfulness is seeing things more clearly, and paying more attention moment to moment. To
actually transform ourselves with the wisdom of mindfulness, we have to start with the lives
we’re living from the moment we wake each day. We have to bring mindfulness out of our heads
and into our homes. And that’s where ideas can become harder to handle…

Balancing all of life’s demands can be stressful and time-consuming. It can often feel like there
isn’t enough time to really connect with our family, friends, partners or roommates—it can even
feel like another chore on our to-do list.
Parenthood brings great joy, but can also bring a new level of stress and worry. Learning how to
manage our stress more effectively is the key to improving our quality of life and theenjoyment
of this new stage.
The good news is that we can maintain a simple, uplifted home that others will enjoy and that
will provide strength for us when we need it most.
In A Mindful Home, your event instructor, yoga therapist and registered psychologist, Katherine
Rosenstein, will guide you through exercises, tips, meditations and talk about the importance of
mindfulness in your home; from communication and attunement with children, spouses,
partners, parents, siblings, friends, and roommates, to the relationship with yourself and why it
is the most important to help create a greater peace of mind. You’ll also learn the importance of
living purposefully and being present, moment to moment, and experiencing without judgement.
Katherine will explore new cognitive strategies and coping skills for:
- Managing stress related to parenting
- Helping children manage their emotions, reduce their stress, and even develop greater
- Effectively communicating and creating emotional balance with others in your household
- Understanding how to truly be withpeople and how to stay connected
- Attuning to the needs of others, while respectfully asking for your personal needs to be met
- Sharing space and finding your personal space
You’ll also learn the importance of living purposefully and being present, in the moment, and
experiencing without judgement.
Discover the many benefits of mindfulness in the home:
- Reduce tension, stress and unwanted hostility
- Improve communication and wellbeing in the home
- Gather insight and learn to be responsive instead of reactive.
- Keep circuits of compassion open both to self and others
A Mindful Home:A Workshop For Individuals, Parents, Partners, Families & Roomies
- Useful tool for self-regulation
Plus much more!
*This class also includes mindfulness exercises such as breath work and relaxation
You can attend alone, with a partner or a small group, although couples or groups who attend
together may discover new ways to strengthen their relationships.

Even one person practicing mindfulness calms the entire home. Calms
our kids without words. Calms our own nerves without thought. Calms our relationships without

Healing with Archetypes | 8 week registered session

Sep 13 '17 - to - Nov 01 '17

In this workshop we are drawing on knowledge from Swiss Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist Carl Jung, medical intuitive Caroline Myss, spiritual scientist Yogi Bhajan and contemporary medicine woman Sam Orthlieb who is a local to Calgary and my co-creative partner on this Archetypal journey and offerings.

Each week, we will explore the 7 chakras and the three Archetypes that are associated with each chakra; one Earthly Purpose Archetype, one Evolving Archetype, and one Shadow Archetype.

Knowing which Archetype(s) is/are dominant in our lives provide a roadmap to ancient wisdom, helping us uncover our lessons, gifts and the healing power the body holds. We will explore how these energies show up in our life and how our health becomes affected if we don’t bring awareness to these energy centres, Archetypes and limiting beliefs surrounding the Shadow aspects of each.

in each session, expect to tune in, explore different chakras & the organs associated, uncover Architypes that are associated with the specific energy center when we are out of alignment & what illness's can manifest if a chakra is out of balance. Kundalini Yoga Series for the chakra being discussed. How are we empowered to live a life on purpose through these Archetypes/ What plant medicine(s) and food assist us on our journey with the specific Chakra. Light Homework
