    Savor the experience of being cradled into a space of deep restoration and awakened clarity. Together we will flow through a nourishing combination of gentle mindful movement, restorative postures, soothing breath work, and a restful yoga nidra to finish. Yoga nidra is a beautiful guided relaxation practice that can support healthy sleep cycles, the release of old tensions, emotional resilience, and much more. Classes are all-levels, beginner-friendly, and trauma-sensitive.

    What is yoga nidra? Yoga nidra is a paradoxical meditative state of conscious sleep; a beautiful space where we may come home to our Hearts.

    Many beautiful treasures can be encountered as we practice: healthy sleep cycles, release of old tensions, emotional resilience, intuitive insights, and even creative ideas to name a few… that said, what happens in your yoga nidra space is for you to uncover, and you can trust that your body’s wisdom will extract exactly what it needs from each practice—without any effort on your part. Yoga nidra is typically practiced in a resting position, so you may simply lie back, lightly listen to the sound of my guidance, and let the magic unfold.

    About Kimberley Luu I’m a therapeutic yoga teacher specializing in yoga nidra. With healing justice at the foundation of my teaching and practice, my aim is to facilitate restorative experiences that help soothe the collective wounds which systems of oppression burden our bodies daily.

    I began practicing yoga in 2008 and discovered yoga nidra specifically six years later during my graduate studies—a period marked heavily by chronic insomnia and exhaustion. Yoga nidra helped me find solace and rest during this difficult time, and has since expanded to support me through my creative work, relationships, community engagements, and spiritual practice.

    After much personal exploration, I completed my Therapeutic, Restorative, and Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings with Felicia Pavlovic and Ante Pavlovic at Yoga Therapy Toronto. Soon after, I completed my Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli at Total Yoga Nidra. In addition to my trainers, I am gratefully influenced by leaders in trauma-sensitive yoga, including Nicole Brown Faulknor, Sheila Singh, and Yoli Maya Yeh. My pronouns are she/ her.

    $140+hst Standard Rate | $165+hst Community Supporter

    Subsidized Rate:  20% off the Standard Rate (for more information on how to access the subsidized rate, visit our Sliding Scale Pricing webpage)

    Rather than focusing on an appearance of 6-pack abs or dramatic yoga backbends, in this course you’ll work towards feeling good in your body, moving with more confidence and fluidity, and breathing easier with more space in your trunk. Together, we’ll explore movements and training options that will bring you better awareness, stability, control, and a more articulate range of motion through the core and spine.

    You may have heard that the core is a responsive unit, but what if it’s forgotten how to respond, or gotten stuck in a particular habit? Come expand your options! You’ll get to learn, feel, and become a lot more intentional and responsive throughout the central structures of your body. Integrating modalities like yoga, strength training, the Tensegrity Repair Series, and mobility, participants will add some key tools to their toolbox to feel strong and bendy!

    Leslie is passionate about mobility work as a way to increase freedom of movement and confidence in everyday life. She’ll be drawing upon her studies of yoga with Yoga Detour, of mobility with Functional Range Conditioning and Kinstretch, and her years of strength training both solo and with the coaches at MoveStong. Leslie is fascinated by the way human bodies work, and loves to share her curiosity and enthusiasm with her students.

    Course Format: This course includes 6 interactive, weekly sessions offered in a hybrid (virtual and in-person) format.

  • IN-STUDIO Embodiment for Trauma Recovery

    with Nicole
    Details

    $120+hst Standard Rate | $145+hst Community Supporter

    Subsidized Rate:  20% off the Standard Rate (for more information on how to access the subsidized rate, visit our Sliding Scale Pricing webpage)

    This unique class is for anyone who is on a path to recovering from physical or emotional trauma. The class aims to give participants tools to understand how trauma affects the body, to move through embodied trauma (trauma stored in the body) through movement. Trauma may seem like a loaded word, but it is something that affects many of us through major losses, accidents, violence, or other major life stresses.

    Embodiment for Trauma Recovery consists of very gentle movements, simple postures from hatha yoga, and breath awareness. The classes are aimed at building a trauma survivor’s sense of empowerment and cultivating a more positive relationship to one's body. The class focuses on internal sensing and reclaiming choice in your body, and is less about form or technique. Absolutely everything in the class is optional, and the practice is beginner-friendly.

    Based on the evidence-based methodology of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga. Embodiment for Trauma Recovery is a group movement class. While this class is taught by a Registered Psychotherapist, it is not group therapy. As an adjunctive therapy, it is not intended as a replacement for working with a qualified therapist. Participants are encouraged to seek adjunctive treatment with a therapist to support the process of healing as needed.

    Course Format: This course includes 6 interactive, weekly sessions offered in a hybrid (virtual and in-person) format. By registering for the IN-STUDIO option, you may choose to attend each session in-person or online. If you prefer to attend all sessions online, please register for the VIRTUAL listing of this course as in-person spots are limited.

    Prenatal yoga will leave you feeling strong, relaxed, and more connected to yourself and your baby. Our classes go beyond simply modifying yoga poses. With an emphasis on strength, breathing, gentle stretches and community connection, this course can help prepare your mind and body for birth and parenting.

Through yoga asana, students can safely encounter strong sensations, and alongside that, discover the coping skills that work best for you and can later be applied to moments of physical or mental discomfort, like during labour and early parenthood. This mindful approach to yoga practice will leave you feeling ready for whatever lies ahead in pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

    We empower students to continuously learn about pregnancy, the birthing process and early parenthood. Our practice sessions are grounded in a welcoming and open environment that celebrates the value of community as you explore this current chapter of life. This class is exclusively for pregnant people (not a partners’ class).

In this course you’ll discover mindful movements and stillness practices that suit your temperament, be invited to self-reflect, share with others, and grow in your ability to befriend yourself through some big feelings without toxic positivity.

    Together, we’ll explore the key elements of resilience and find techniques that work best for us. We’ll cultivate sensitivity and compassion to tune into the messages of our bodies, recognize our own patterns and see how the stresses of our times show up differently for each of us. All techniques will be approached through a lens of self-compassion, with the intention of learning to self-soothe and build a more robust capacity in our nervous systems.

    Mindful movement and meditation beginners are welcome! Be sure to have a notebook handy and something to write with for times of self-reflection. Danette teaches with a trauma-aware and neurodivergence-aware perspective.

    Our classes are intended to be a complement to, but not a replacement for, professional mental health support.

    Prenatal yoga will leave you feeling strong, relaxed, and more connected to yourself and your baby. Our classes go beyond simply modifying yoga poses. With an emphasis on strength, breathing, gentle stretches and community connection, this course can help prepare your mind and body for birth and parenting.

    Each session will include poses that bring balance and alignment to your pelvis, pelvic floor, and pelvic and uterine ligaments. Through yoga asana, students can safely encounter strong sensations, and alongside that, discover the coping skills that work best for you and can later be applied to moments of physical or mental discomfort, like during labour and early parenthood. This mindful approach to yoga practice will leave you feeling ready for whatever lies ahead in pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

    We empower students to continuously learn about pregnancy, the birthing process and early parenthood. Our practice sessions are grounded in a welcoming and open environment that celebrates the value of community as you explore this current chapter of life. This class is exclusively for pregnant people (not a partners’ class).

    Beginners to yoga and any stage of pregnancy are welcome.

    Savor the experience of being cradled into a space of deep restoration and awakened clarity. Together we will flow through a nourishing combination of gentle mindful movement, restorative postures, soothing breath work, and a restful yoga nidra to finish. Yoga nidra is a beautiful guided relaxation practice that can support healthy sleep cycles, the release of old tensions, emotional resilience, and much more. Classes are all-levels, beginner-friendly, and trauma-sensitive.

    What is yoga nidra? Yoga nidra is a paradoxical meditative state of conscious sleep; a beautiful space where we may come home to our Hearts.

    Many beautiful treasures can be encountered as we practice: healthy sleep cycles, release of old tensions, emotional resilience, intuitive insights, and even creative ideas to name a few… that said, what happens in your yoga nidra space is for you to uncover, and you can trust that your body’s wisdom will extract exactly what it needs from each practice—without any effort on your part. Yoga nidra is typically practiced in a resting position, so you may simply lie back, lightly listen to the sound of my guidance, and let the magic unfold.

    About Kimberley Luu I’m a therapeutic yoga teacher specializing in yoga nidra. With healing justice at the foundation of my teaching and practice, my aim is to facilitate restorative experiences that help soothe the collective wounds which systems of oppression burden our bodies daily.

    I began practicing yoga in 2008 and discovered yoga nidra specifically six years later during my graduate studies—a period marked heavily by chronic insomnia and exhaustion. Yoga nidra helped me find solace and rest during this difficult time, and has since expanded to support me through my creative work, relationships, community engagements, and spiritual practice.

    After much personal exploration, I completed my Therapeutic, Restorative, and Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings with Felicia Pavlovic and Ante Pavlovic at Yoga Therapy Toronto. Soon after, I completed my Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli at Total Yoga Nidra. In addition to my trainers, I am gratefully influenced by leaders in trauma-sensitive yoga, including Nicole Brown Faulknor, Sheila Singh, and Yoli Maya Yeh. My pronouns are she/ her.

    Rather than focusing on an appearance of 6-pack abs or dramatic yoga backbends, in this course you’ll work towards feeling good in your body, moving with more confidence and fluidity, and breathing easier with more space in your trunk. Together, we’ll explore movements and training options that will bring you better awareness, stability, control, and a more articulate range of motion through the core and spine.

    You may have heard that the core is a responsive unit, but what if it’s forgotten how to respond, or gotten stuck in a particular habit? Come expand your options! You’ll get to learn, feel, and become a lot more intentional and responsive throughout the central structures of your body. Integrating modalities like yoga, strength training, the Tensegrity Repair Series, and mobility, participants will add some key tools to their toolbox to feel strong and bendy!

    Leslie is passionate about mobility work as a way to increase freedom of movement and confidence in everyday life. She’ll be drawing upon her studies of yoga with Yoga Detour, of mobility with Functional Range Conditioning and Kinstretch, and her years of strength training both solo and with the coaches at MoveStong. Leslie is fascinated by the way human bodies work, and loves to share her curiosity and enthusiasm with her students.

    Subsidized Rate:  20% off the Standard Rate (for more information on how to access the subsidized rate, visit our Sliding Scale Pricing webpage)

    This unique class is for anyone who is on a path to recovering from physical or emotional trauma. The class aims to give participants tools to understand how trauma affects the body, to move through embodied trauma (trauma stored in the body) through movement. Trauma may seem like a loaded word, but it is something that affects many of us through major losses, accidents, violence, or other major life stresses.

    Embodiment for Trauma Recovery consists of very gentle movements, simple postures from hatha yoga, and breath awareness. The classes are aimed at building a trauma survivor’s sense of empowerment and cultivating a more positive relationship to one's body. The class focuses on internal sensing and reclaiming choice in your body, and is less about form or technique. Absolutely everything in the class is optional, and the practice is beginner-friendly.

    Based on the evidence-based methodology of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga. Embodiment for Trauma Recovery is a group movement class. While this class is taught by a Registered Psychotherapist, it is not group therapy. As an adjunctive therapy, it is not intended as a replacement for working with a qualified therapist. Participants are encouraged to seek adjunctive treatment with a therapist to support the process of healing as needed.

    Course Format: This course includes 6 interactive, weekly sessions offered in a hybrid (virtual and in-person) format. By registering for the VIRTUAL option, you will attend all sessions online (via livestream in Zoom). If you prefer to have the option to attend in-person, please register for the IN-STUDIO listing of this course, but be aware that in-person spots are limited.

    Prenatal yoga will leave you feeling strong, relaxed, and more connected to yourself and your baby. Our classes go beyond simply modifying yoga poses. With an emphasis on strength, breathing, gentle stretches and community connection, this course can help prepare your mind and body for birth and parenting.

    Each session will include poses that bring balance and alignment to your pelvis, pelvic floor, and pelvic and uterine ligaments. Through yoga asana, students can safely encounter strong sensations, and alongside that, discover the coping skills that work best for you and can later be applied to moments of physical or mental discomfort, like during labour and early parenthood. This mindful approach to yoga practice will leave you feeling ready for whatever lies ahead in pregnancy, birth, and beyond.

    We empower students to continuously learn about pregnancy, the birthing process and early parenthood. Our practice sessions are grounded in a welcoming and open environment that celebrates the value of community as you explore this current chapter of life. This class is exclusively for pregnant people (not a partners’ class).

    Beginners to yoga and any stage of pregnancy are welcome.

    Meditation is a powerful tool to grow your resilience. Exploring it with others reminds us that we are not alone on this journey. In this course you’ll discover mindful movements and stillness practices that suit your temperament, be invited to self-reflect, share with others, and grow in your ability to befriend yourself through some big feelings without toxic positivity.

    Together, we’ll explore the key elements of resilience and find techniques that work best for us. We’ll cultivate sensitivity and compassion to tune into the messages of our bodies, recognize our own patterns and see how the stresses of our times show up differently for each of us. All techniques will be approached through a lens of self-compassion, with the intention of learning to self-soothe and build a more robust capacity in our nervous systems.

    Mindful movement and meditation beginners are welcome! Be sure to have a notebook handy and something to write with for times of self-reflection. Danette teaches with a trauma-aware and neurodivergence-aware perspective.
