Fall Yoga … starting Sunday & Monday with Rachel

Happy Fall to All 🙂

Yoga at the Iris Center is starting up after a short break over the summer with Sessions on Sunday and Monday with Rachel to celebrate the change of seasons and Wendy’s & Bill’s classes will be starting soon as well so keep watching our posts for details.

Here are the details for Rachel’s classes:

Sunday sept 23     1-3p        108 sun salutations

Make space to embrace the change of season and the changes within

Reclaim lost connection

Attune to the natural rhythms

Feel with all that is

Practice accessible for all levels could be 108 mantras or counting your mala beads many ways to embrace this gateway of change.

Monday sept 24    730-830p         Full moon Power Hour

Let go and find the flow

Release inhibition and restricting beliefs 

Send healing and love

Deep into the roots 

Overcome your fears

Shine in your glory 

 

Classes will hopefully be in the Greenhouse Studio so we can really appreciate the outdoors and change of season so be sure to dress with layers and perhaps bring a blanket.  We will move indoors if necessary.

Both classes offered by donation.

Thank You, Thank You

We have had a very successful month at the Iris Center first with a wonderful response to PsychicMedium Anthony Mikilojeski in May then we were so blessed by the volunteers, sent to us by The United Way  for their “Day of Caring”, from Service NB, GNB Financial Dept. , Ginger Design, STU Social Work students, and Enbridge.  They worked along with our staff, who we cherish, graciously all day on our landscape which had been quite affected by the flood preparing it upcoming events. We had a well attended and much appreciated non-residential weekend retreat with insight meditation teacher Heather Martin from Salt Spring Island, BC the second weekend of June and  a great turn out with wonderful weather for Yoga Day this past Saturday. We held 5 yoga sessions and raised over $600 for Nature Trust NB.  Thank you all for your generous attendance and sharing in all these events.  We are very gratefully.

Namaste,

Bill and Wendy
