Meet Your Guide: 

I am Amarin Dawn,   Mother, Grandmother, Lover,  tree hugger, animal activist,  and a mentor for Inter-Being.

I am deeply grateful for a rich and busy life. I value my  Days spent Inspiring  nature connection through an environmental not-for-profit ‘Experience Journeys’  dreamed into being with my life partner. I relish my plant based cheffing at  ‘The Heart’,  a vegan cafe founded with my eldest daughter.  And , most importantly,  I love hugging trees with my Grandson.   
 
I am sometimes  fearful, furious and heartbroken for our planet.  I am grateful for the contemplative nature connection practices that invite me back to remembering I am love and in this, intricately woven into this web of life. 
 
I savour laying in mossy beds.  I cry when the Red Wing blackbirds arrive in the Spring.  I am most at home in my tent in forests and mountain meadows.  Trees are my therapists. Birdsong my favourite genre.    
I am Fiercely in love with this planet and all life it supports.  
My aspiration is that my actions inspire others to care for this planet, so deeply in need of our compassionate attention.
 
-There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the ground; there are a thousand ways to go home again-  Rumi

Couples Yoga with Amarin & Dave

For yoga veterans and newbies alike, a stress-free option for someone new to the mat.

This two hour 15 minute class is a fun and playful exploration of both restorative and invigorating partner postures.

Benefits of couples Yoga include increased relationship satisfaction, reduced anxiety and stress, improved intimacy and sex life and increased communication and trust.

Sharing interests is a great way for couples to get to know each other better and connect on new levels, whether the relationship is new or very long-term. Working on partner poses can improve your trust and physical connection, as well as help couples to feel more in sync after busy days of running in different directions.

Over time you will see changes in you and your partner’s body as Yoga improves your muscle flexibility, strength and tone. As you delight in your improved wellness & confidence, these changes may spark renewed attractions with your loved one.

The stress relief that yoga provides will help you, your partner, and those around you. Stress always manages to creep from one area of our lives into another. Partners can feel each other’s stress and may take some of it on themselves. Yoga is a great way to let the stress melt away and create a calmer, happier environment for your relationships. Release those endorphins and let the positive energy flow!

There are so many health benefits to yoga, and who doesn’t want a healthy partner? When you are both taking care of yourselves physically and mentally, you can better take care of each other for a very long time.

Somatic Release & Hypnosis

Journey to Your Inner Child with Yulia Willick

All of us carry an Inner Child that we need to tend to, that needs to be seen and heard, and most of all unconditionally loved. Inner Child Healing Practices are not only supporting your younger Self, but any parts of you that require love, attention and healing. This practice can offer many benefits including an increased feeling of contentment, confidence, self-love and joy.

What to expect:

Part 1: Yulia will guide you through a full Somatic Release Sequence which will assist the body to connect with deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma held in the body (especially the Psoas muscle). Participants will then experience a 15 minute physical release period while staying in a resting position, which usually feels like a gentle shaking sensation. The nervous system will slowly regulate itself.

Part 2: Full Body Relaxation, followed by Guided Imagery and Hypnosis. Once participants enter the theta brainwave state, they are able to connect with the subconscious mind and release limiting beliefs about themselves. This is a potent state to introduce loving, nurturing and supportive energies in order to deeply heal. Hypnosis bypasses the “thinking-mind-filter”of the conscious mind, in order to reach deep rooted emotions and beliefs that we are often not fully aware of. This is where lasting change can occur, while reprogramming the mind and creating new neural pathways.

Limited to 12 participants

Spirit Sisters Circle with Kelly Day

Women have circled for centuries, gathering in sacred space, honoring the intuitive and nurturing aspects of the divine feminine. Over time, this magic has laid dormant or been suppressed by patriarchy and the fast-paced and often disconnected ways in which we live. As consciousness rises among us, we can feel this stir of the feminine and her call to be rediscovered. Sister circles are a powerful way to reclaim the divine feminine within us, within our communities, and beyond.
Each sister circle provides a nurturing and sacred space to hold and be held. A place to come as you are and be accepted with love. A place to quiet the mind, listen to intuitive messages, and step towards your highest truth. A place to nurture and grow your spiritual connection and a sisterhood like no other. A place to embrace the vulnerable aspects of ourselves and create a container where vulnerability is welcomed with open arms. Join Kelly Day as she leads you through weekly sister circle gatherings.
Each circle will have a unique theme to explore and will include meditation and mindfulness practices, thoughtful connection, sacred ritual and journaling. Please bring a journal and pen, yoga mat and any special items that can be added to the sacred altar.

Wednesdays @7pm
