Moving Into the Heart- Couples Communication, Dialogue and Partner Yoga workshop.
September 29-30, 10am-4pm each day
October 4, 7-9pm
October 11, 7-9pm
So you’ve found “the one who makes your heart smile”…now let’s get you remembering why they did!
This workshop will be co-facilitated by Mia Tremblay, Creative Art Therapist and Cathy Skelcher, E-RYT200. The communication tools that will be introduced are based on the book by Harville Hendrix, Getting the Love you Want.
Here’s a link to the book:
What you will discover in this workshop:
- Why the qualities in your partner that once attracted you, now drive you nuts!
- What’s really at the heart of that same argument you’re having every six weeks!
- A way to successfully communicate your frustrations and needs and get them met!
- Ways to express your love and affection in ways that work for both of you.
- How to stay in communication even in times of conflict.
- How to have fun with each other again!
This workshop is for you if:
- You are in a new relationship and want to deepen your understanding of each other.
- You’re feeling invisible or not heard in the relationship you’re in.
- You have small children and finding time for one another has become low on the priority list.
- You’ve been married a while and want to find that spark of excitement and romance again!
Kevin and I have been doing this work with Mia for about a year and a half. And I want to share this work with everyone I know! For me, I have learned what drives my behaviour, that shockingly, my upset is very rarely Kevin’s fault, and maybe most importantly how to communicate my feelings so that I feel seen and heard. I also feel like I have seen through a little window into Kevin’s heart…what makes him feel loved, feel scared, feel angry, what makes him shut down. And with these tools we have learned to speak to one another respectfully, to listen to each other deeply, to love all aspects of ourselves and each other, and to always come back to one another, no matter what the conflict. I truly believe this work has strengthened, and some days, saved our marriage.
Please note that this is NOT group therapy. No personal issues will be talked about in the group. Tools will be introduced to the group and then you and your partner will have time to practice the tools privately. Mia will be available for coaching.

Flip It! Inversion Series
Thursdays, 6:30-7:45am Sept13-Oct11 (5 weeks)
OK…I know this is early to get out bed and stand on your head. AND I think starting your day by turning your perspective upside down, looking at things anew and conquering fears is a kick ass kind of thing to do.
Also, this picture falls into the category of stuff we won’t be doing!
We will however, be going over shoulderstand, headstand, handstand, forearm stands and modifications for all!
This workshop is open to beginners and veterans alike.
Beginner Yoga Series (8 weeks)
Are you wanting to begin a regular yoga practice or wanting to return to one? Is the idea of going into a drop in class intimidating? Do you have injuries/range of motion issues that you don’t know how to modify in class? This class is designed to go over the foundational poses of yoga, introduce you to yoga philosophy and have you go into any yoga class feeling confident and prepared, with modifications for your body!
November 1st-December 20th, 2018
What you will receive each week
75 minute yoga class and follow up that will include:
These classes are designed for brand new mamas who are getting back into their bodies after welcoming a new little addition to their family, but any caregiver is welcome to come with baby. The class is designed in such a way that you can step in and out of your practice to tend to your little one as necessary. Flows are simple and incorporate baby where possible, giving caregivers the opportunity to stretch out the muscles that tend to tighten when you spend your day curled around a baby, and strengthen the muscles used when lifting, carrying, and nurturing a little one.
*Please note: check with your healthcare provider before beginning any new physical exercise during your pregnancy. New exercises should not be undertaken during the first trimester.
*on hold til September* Wednesdays 10:15-11:15am
