La perte d’un âme chère est ma nouvelle réalité depuis quelques jours. Notre grande communauté du bien-être est sous le choc de la mort tragique de notre belle Rose-Marie. Depuis la conception et l’ouverture de notre édifice sur la rue Gauvin, Rose-Marie Saulnier a été une de nos locataires. Son sourire, sa bonne humeur et son amour inconditionnel nous crée un grand vide. Elle était et sera toujours une âme remplie d’amour et de joie de vivre. Cette perte m’ébranle toujours et je me vois retourné sur mon tapis de plus en plus pendant ces moments difficiles. C’est le rappel constant de la beauté du yoga est comment celle-ci nous ramène au moment présent. Pour une heure ou plus, le rythme de mes respirations et mouvements allègent ma peine et douleur et nourrissent mon corps, ce qui me permet à retourner à la source.. Que ce soit un deuil, une séparation, un nouveau début remplie d’incertitudes, le yoga aide à mieux vivre ces transitions et pour cela je suis rempli de gratitude d’avoir découvert cette ancienne pratique. Namaste Chantel xxx

Yoga through difficult transitions.

Our Wellness Community has lost a pioneer in our industry over the weekend. Rose-Marie Saulnier has been one of our first tenants in our building on Gauvin Road when Sequoia was opened and has always believed in offering alternative ways to deal with health issues. Her bright smile, big hugs and unconditional love will be missed by many and as I grieve this huge loss, I find myself on my mat more often than before. My yoga practice grounds me back to the 'Now', the only moment that matters and helps me to be grateful for each breath my body takes in. Whether it be grieving the loss of life, the fear of a reality or any other life situation yoga always makes things a little easier a little lighter, and for that I am forever grateful..

Namaste, Chantel xxx

5 REASONS YOU SHOULD KEEP PRACTICING YOGA EVEN DURING THE SUMMER:
1) SANITY
The sun, warm weather & long nights call us all out in the world. We tend to stay up later, sleep less and spend more time recreating, which is exactly what we should be doing during the longer day light hours.
However, we still need to be practicing self-care to ensure that we are staying in balance. We want to maintain our energy throughout the summer months, not end up feeling worn out and burnt out – and potentially also burnt – by July.
one-hiking-lifestyle-summer-yoga_1150-1002

2) INJURY PREVENTION
All of the outdoor playing we do creates tension in our bodies. This tension needs to be moved out of our bodies so that we can stay nimble and healthy. A regular yoga practice can help with this.
The strength that you have combined with the flexibility that yoga promotes creates mobility. This means, that you can be ready for spills, rapid movements as needed on the trails or water ways without having this unexpected movements lead to injury.
Regular yoga practice will help keep you healthy through out the summer and beyond!

3) REST
It’s so important to rest even during this summer months. We are so used to doing and going endlessly, especially in the summer.
Coming to a Yin or Restorative class can help you rest and relax, this is so important to keeping yourself healthy, physically, mentally and emotionally.

4) VARIETY
We all love certain sports more than others, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, doing the same movements over and over again, just like sitting at a desk can create repetitive patterns in our body. A regular yoga practice can help to combat this, creating different movement patterns. It’s nice to mix it up every once and a while!

5) COMMUNITY
This one may be cheesy, but true.
A lot of the activities we do are solo activities and yoga can be a great way to connect to community, whether you are into talking to people before or after class. Or whether you prefer to come in and speak to no one, it’s great way to be with a group of like minded people.
And if you really don’t want to be inside, Shala is offering an Outdoor Summer Yoga Series at Nootka & Sea at the Squamish Town Hub.

We hope to see you on the mat soon if not for one of the reasons listed above for any reason you want.

What Client's Say

Carine Luys

Quand j’arrive en haut de l’escalier, peu importe à la vitesse où j’arrive, dès que je passe la porte et pénètre dans l’espace Pura Vida, je reviens à mon essence, je ne suis plus la mère, l’amoureuse, la collègue, l’employée de personne, je suis moi pour moi. Et une fois dans le studio, dans la chaleur et l’obscurité du climat bienveillant, mon esprit n’est habité que par la voix enveloppante de l’une ou l’autre des instructrices, je ne pense plus à rien, soulagement et libération du corps et de l’âme. Puis je redescend l’escalier lentement, légère, pour réintégrer doucement ma vie.
