Prana Flow and Restore Yoga is a balanced class that integrates movement and stillness. Flowing, creative sequences of postures awaken ‘prana’ – life energy, cultivate gentle strength, mobility and flexibility, as meditation in motion. From flow, we move into a deeper stillness with slow stretches and gentle, restorative postures. Gentle Flow and Restore Yoga is a similar class, with more emphasis on restful postures.

All classes include meditation, pranayama (breathing exercises), and wisdom teachings. Classes cultivate connection with inner wisdom, intuition, vital energy, while supporting a balanced and nourished central nervous system and relaxed awareness. All levels of experience are welcome. Participate from the comfort of your home, with your video on or off.

This online series presents an opportunity for you bring the discipline of self care into this lockdown time. Without a physical yoga studio, we have the potential to deepen the inner space that we settle into through presence, the inner sanctuary. Other members of your household are welcome to join, without registration.

~Thank you for your support, and I look forward to supporting you! ~

Winter Solstice Yoga: Honouring the Darkness and Welcoming the Light (ONLINE)

Class on Zoom with Tiina Kivinen

Date and Time: Monday, December 21, 7 – 8:30pm

Price:$15 + HST

This year’s Winter Solstice falls on Monday, December 21. To honour and bring ritual to this very sacred time, I am offering a Zoom Yoga class that you can participate in from the comfort and coziness of your own home.

In the northern hemisphere, the Winter Solstice marks the longest night/ hours of darkness, as one of the earth’s poles has its maximum tilt away from the sun. For millenia, cultures around the world have brought ceremony to this time, in honouring the darkness, the powerful transition between seasons, and the rebirth of the sun. There is much to honour and embrace in the healing darkness of the night, the power of regeneration, deep rest and the magic of the dreamworld. From the darkness, we emerge into the light of a new day, a new season, with the promise of rebirth after this time of winters rest and gestation. This class offers an opportunity to bring ritual to this time, bringing Yoga, meditation, self reflection, journaling and intention to this sacred time. A gentle flow, ending with a prolonged relaxation/  mini nidra savasana, and some time for self reflection. All abilities are welcome!

You will need an internet connection and device (computer, phone or tablet), some space and time for quiet reflection and practice, yoga mat, blanket and pillow, journal, a candle, and anything else that brings a feeling of ceremony for you. (altar items, smudge, essential oils etc). Participants will mute during class, and cameras are optional. Pajamas encouraged!

Space for Rent and Upcoming Classes

Tiina Kivinen Blog

The pandemic has taken its toll on many small businesses, including our own Peterborough Living Yoga. This space has been a sanctuary and a fertile ground for many transformations. With much contemplation, we have decided to stay the course and give re opening a try, with some registered classes and workshops.  As well, with a shift in teacher availability, we have quite a bit of empty space, some evenings, many daytimes and weekends. So, we are calling out to any yoga teachers or wellness practitioner who are looking for a space to teach in (physical distancing fits about 8 for yoga). Finding renters is a key part of making this re opening plan possible, financially. Contact us if you are interested!

Covid 19 Pandemic Precautions and the Way Forward – Classes Starting Soon

Tiina Kivinen Blog

Your safety and well being is our priority. We understand how important Yoga practices are for supporting stress resilience, immune function, community, and over all wellness, and so we are moving forward in the following way…

*We are limiting class numbers to ensure physical distancing, therefore we are no longer offering 10 Class Series or Unlimited, only Registered Series, and Workshops.  If you had a membership with us that was active when the studio closed, please contact us to discuss your options.

*If you are sick or have any Covid 19 symptoms, have traveled to high risk areas, or have been exposed to the virus, please stay at home.

*Bring your own props Yoga mat(s), blanket, and anything else that you prefer for practice, including a full water bottle. Our props are available if needed, and will be either sanitized or quarantined after use, but we encourage you to bring your own.

*The studio will be cleaned and sanitized often.

*We are increasing time in between classes to ensure physical distancing and adequate time for cleaning.

*Masks are worn as you enter and leave, or move about the space, (Unless you are exempt). When you settle on your mat, you may remove it.

Tiina Kivinen Blog

As Ontario enters Stage 3, we are now technically allowed to reopen. As excited as we are to see you, we will be taking it slow in order to integrate best practices. In the spirit of yoga, not rushing and moving mindfully…and with heart.

It has been a potent time, with so much learning and deepening. Stepping away from the day to day has brought much to the surface that needs to integrate. I am looking forward to re connecting soon at the studio, and in the mean time, will have more outdoor yoga classes this summer. Locations of Peterborough, Lakefield, and Marmora, at pop up dates and times. Contact us for more information.

If you are a yoga teacher or holistic guide looking for space for your next offerings, do let me know, as the space will be available for renters before we officially open as Peterborugh Living Yoga.

~ much love, and I leave you with this quote from the book I am taking to read by the lake on my holiday this week!

Tiina

“Many myths tell us that we will find ourselves, from time to time, alone and separated from all that is familiar. How we use these times will affect the richness of our return. We can come back to the world thickened, deepened, and opened by our time in silence and solitude. Those who undertake the full journey into their grief come back carrying medicine for the world”
(Francis Weller, ‘Wild Edge of Sorrow’)
