    PranaShanti Community Kirtan

    Friday, October 3rd, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
    PranaShanti Community Kirtan
    Meditation doesn't come easy for everyone and that's where kirtan-an ancient participatory music experience-offers another method. Without the work of mentally quieting the mind, the music and chanting of kirtan can carry us effortlessly to a place of quiet, to stillness.

    One of the oldest sacred music traditions of the world, the kirtan call-and-response chanting genre comes to us from India. Using ancient Sanskrit mantras, the kirtan calls upon sacred energies which serve to quiet the mind, remove obstacles, and bring us back to the center of our being.

    Bring your family, kids, friends, parents, and your favorite percussion instruments to play. Herbal tea served. Bring some snacks to share.

    Join the chanting fun!

    Cost: Minimum donation of $5.00 in support of The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation (Visit www.ottawacancer.ca for more information

    Full Moon Healing Meditation

    Tuesday, October 7th, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    Full Moon Healing Meditation

    On the full moon, the sun’s radiance is strongest and is reflected both from the earth and from the moon to the earth.The full moon is the time of month where there is the greatest connection between sun and moon.

    The moon relates to the spine left energy channel, ida (yin, contraction, introversion, receptive, inner feminine). The sun relates to spine right energy channel, pingala (yang, expansive, extroversion, projective, inner masculine).

    The sun and moon together in equal parts relates to the spine's central energy channel, sushmana. When we practice at this time we can direct the prana through the sushumna and create a movement of energy for balance and self-healing.

    Join Devinder for this nurturing class which includes an overview of the astrology of the Full Moon, breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya), a healing meditation and a deep relaxation with the soothing vibration of the Gong.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.

    Breathing Fundamentals: Understanding the Connections between Mind, Body, and Breath

    Sunday, October 19th, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
    Breathing Fundamentals: Understanding the Connections between Mind, Body, and Breath
    Much freedom can be felt in the mind and body with a full breath.
     
    This 3 hour workshop will address the anatomy and psycho-physiology of breathing, as well as the detrimental effects that restricted or inefficient breathing patterns can have on our physical and psychological health. The theoretical material will then be applied to practically observe and experience ways of creating freedom in the breath, releasing stress holding patterns in the body, and reducing agitations of the mind.

    We will further explore the interdependent relationship between the mind, body, and breath by means of:

    • Asanas to understand of the relationship between breath and movement of the spine
    • Pranayama and Bandhas to experience the impact on the nervous system of various breathing techniques
    • Massage therapy techniques used to release actual physical constraints on the breath
    • Myofascial release techniques that can be done at home with use of Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls
    • Meditations that allow for objective observation and true understanding of the relationship between mind, body, and breath

    Cost:  $45.00 per person.


    Katherine Marr, MA, CCC, YT
    Katherine Marr is a psychotherapist, yoga teacher, and certified Yoga Tune Up therapy ball practitioner. She is fascinated by everything related to the human mind, body, and spirit. Her perspective on health is very holistic and optimistic. Katherine has a dedicated yoga and meditation practice that enhances her ability to teach from experience. She has specifically been interested in and studying the psychophysiology of the breath for the last few years.

    New Moon Intention Setting

    Thursday, October 23rd, 5:45pm - 7:15pm
    New Moon Intention Setting
    The New Moon is day one of the moon cycle and is a time to plant new seeds for growth and prosperity. During the New Moon, our glands are at a low ebb, as is our energy.

    Meditating at the time of the new moon intensifies our intentions and makes it an ideal time to focus on positivity, to charge up the mind and body to turn our intentions into reality.

    Join Devinder for this uplifting class as we gather together to make a powerful claim to overcome our challenges while manifesting our intentions. Our class includes an overview of the astrology of the New Moon, breath work (pranayam), a short yoga set (kriya), a prosperity meditation and a deep relaxation with two Gongs played at the same time.

    Cost: PranaShanti Class Card or Drop-in Fee.
