YOGA CLASSES

Please note that due to Covid-19, yoga classes will take place predominantly online. Please check our Facebook or Instagram for details on offerings.

Nichole’s classes will encourage you to connect your body and mind through the flow of movement and breath. Finding stillness through meditation, simple breath work techniques, and inspiration from yoga philosophy, all while cultivating strength and heat, you will leave your mat feeling more centered body, mind and soul.

Sunday, December 20, 2020 – 7:00 to 8:15pm

Celebrate winter solstice by aligning with the light.
Join Nichole from Zen Gems + Yoga for our annual solstice celebration from the comfort of your own home. There have been tremendous shifts as we reflect upon 2020, and this time of year is energetically powerful as we come to this longest and darkest night of the year, honouring the re-emergence of the sun and the light (the natural rebirth that happens with cycles), while releasing what has fallen away and illuminating and nourishing new intentions.
Allow yourself the space to ease into the energy of this season + turn inwards through a grounding meditation, breathwork + a cozy + nourishing yin yoga practice. Together we will navigate through the underlying themes symbolic of winter solstice — light, release and intention; allowing ourselves to:
  • Reflect upon 2020 + it’s gifts
  • Plant seeds of intention for the upcoming year
  • Turn inwards during longer yin poses
Join us virtually on Sunday, December 20 at 7:00pm CST for a 75 minute practice. Recording can also be sent out upon request if you cannot join us live.
Registrants will also receive a PDF of journal prompts a week before the class, these will be referenced throughout our session as an opportunity to encourage introspection during our yin practice of mind-body connection and stillness.
Before class:
Find a quiet, dark space to roll out your mat. I recommend a couple pillows/rolled up blankets OR blocks/bolster to support you.
Grab a cup of tea or nourishing beverage, as well as any sacred objects or crystals, and a journal/pen should you wish to document anything that comes up for you.
I also encourage you to have a candle ready to light at the start of class to honor the return of the light.
To register, please message me with your e-mail address, and send your registration of $20 to nichole.berezowski@gmail.com.

Lunar Yin Online Series

November-December 2020 – 5 Week Series, or by Drop In

Are you looking to create space this season to slow down + soften?
To feel, release, + restore while engaging in mindful movement of your body?

During this five week virtual series, we will explore the more introspective + nourishing practice of yin yoga, themed around the energetic phases within the lunar cycle.

Why is the moon cycle important? The moon’s cycle offers us the perfect opportunity to go inward – each phase naturally fluctuating its energy and offering rich wisdom. By slowing down to align with the cycles of the natural world, we will feel empowered in our ability to recognize it’s effects on our energetic and mental shifts.

What is yin yoga? The practice of yin yoga focuses on releasing the fascia (aka the tissues around our muscles + organs). In contrast to a more fluid yang practice such as in vinyasa yoga, this is achieved through deep stretching, longer holds in postures, balanced with slow + deep breathing.

Dates:

Join us live Sunday evenings from 7 to 8pm CST (recordings available for you to practice on your own time if requested)
November 15, 22, 29, December 6 and 13, 2020
Investment: $50
Drop ins welcome — $12 per class.

Payment can be made via e transfer to nichole.berezowski@gmail.com
