Family Yoga Fun with Patrycja Maksalon
Tuesdays at 4 -5 PM

Yoga is a fun, non-competitive and easy way to get moving not only for adults, but for the entire family. With the use of imagination and creativity, Family Yoga explores postures and breathing exercises suitable for all ages. It also offers wonderful tools for invigorating the body and relaxing the mind.

We invite parents/ grandparents/ caregivers and siblings to come along for an hour of stretching, movement, play and meditation. The idea is to encourage kids of all ages (1-109!!) to enjoy this activity together as a community.

You can sign up for a session; or drop in anytime just to try it out!

BABY & ME YOGA with Patrycja Maksalon
Tuesdays at 11:30am
Baby & Me Yoga is designed to create a sacred space for mamas and their babies to engage in movements that nurture heart, body and mind. The focus for mamas is on regaining strength and flexibility after birth; as well as taking care of our spine, neck and shoulders. Mamas will be invited to bring the babies into the postures. Baby yoga and massage will also be incorporated into the sessions.
The class is designed to bring together a community of mamas and babies in a supportive and nurturing way. Mamas are encouraged to respond to their babies needs throughout the class… as we celebrate treasuring these moments together.
Please bring your yoga mat, a blanket for your baby, and perhaps a few favourite cuddle toys (if you wish). This is a space for mamas and babies to enjoy each other: utilizing touch, movement, breathe, relaxation and massage to connect with our babies and engage our bodies. 
Sign up for the session, or just drop in whenever you can! No prior yoga experience is necessary. I can’t wait to meet you and your precious little one!! If you have any questions about the class, please do not hesitate to contact patrycja at pmaksalon@gmail.com

——————————————————————————————————————-

Yoga classes at the Cascade club are offered by John R. Barkley and Zofia Kumas-Tan.

Yin yoga is a slow, deep practice. Yin postures are generally seated, kneeling, or lying-down, supported with blocks or bolsters, and held for 2 to 5 minutes The aim is to give the body’s connective tissues (fascia, tendons, ligaments) a deep stretch, developing greater flexibility, mental focus, and relaxation through a mostly still practice.

Classical yoga is a practice that equally develops strength, flexibility, balance and endurance. The postures are more varied than in yin yoga, and are generally held for several breaths (rather than minutes). As mind and body are united through the breath, the practice becomes a form of meditation in motion.

Yanumoja Yoga places emphasis on the whole person and has a continual flow of positions. In class the emphasis will be on the breath, total body movement (stretching and toning), core strengthening, and will end with relaxation. The classes are suitable for all levels of fitness and yoga experience.
