Island Yoga with Jennifer Armstrong @ Sandpiper Beach
Sep 2 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

yogajennifer began her yoga journey here on hornby 25 years ago. And her life & practice have been informed by many different teachers & traditions over the years. Perhaps none more than S.N. Goenka, from whom she has learned Vipassana meditation at dozens of silent retreats over the years. In her years of practice, she has found yoga can inspire us to move towards a deeper, richer understanding of ourselves & our connection with the world around us. Her classes are rooted in that discovery. In the busyness of our days, yoga is a way to come home, to connect to our own strength & vitality, our innate, inner wisdom, a pool of quietude & connectedness.

Over the last 10 years, jennifer’s teaching style has become a wonderful infusion of traditions, with deep roots in the Iyengar teachings of precision & alignment, animated with flowing vinyasa practices inspired by ashtanga & Pattabi Jois. Her classes are lively & spirited. This heartfelt combination of precise alignment & inward focus, blended with her natural enthusiasm, create a way to safely discover joy and ease in the practice.

jennifer teaches her summer classes on the meadow above Sandpiper beach. Reaping the benefits of grounding to the earth while being recharged by the ocean air. She invites you to step away from walls & floors, electricity, phones, the busyness of your day. Come & practice tree pose amongst the trees, eagle with the eagles & feel your body rest fully connected to the natural world & the earth beneath you in savasana.

Hornby Island Yoga – 8120 Central Road

10468505_10152150577020737_7307359133569234039_o

Dear Hornby,

All are welcome to come along to Hornby Island Yoga Studio at Cat Creek, 8120 Central Rd, to sing, hum along or just be present.

One of my favourite things is to hold space for people to come together to share an experience of sound and song that can lift us up and out, carry us in, and deep. I’ve really enjoyed teaching groups and workshops in small communities in New Zealand the songs of Taizé (see below) as a vehicle for this exploration of harmony, unity, stillness and celebration and am happy and honoured to be able to hold this space on Hornby this summer at Diane’s beautiful new yoga studio. Hooray!

Singers of all abilities are welcome, you don’t have to have a great voice just a desire to be there. The songs will be taught in simple, gentle ways with an emphasis on ease, for optimum voice physiology… Come every week or drop-in when you feel inspired.

Taizé is an ecumenical order of monks in Burgundy, France founded during the second world war. They have developed a form of worship based almost entirely on song and with hundreds and thousands of visitors every week from all over the world, they have written and favoured songs that are simple, repetitive and quick to communicate an essence of peace and beauty. The songs are in Latin and a mixture of English and other European languages.

Satsang followed by a 30 minute sit: During Satsangs this summer we will be listening to audio talks by audio talks by Adyashanti from his most recent course ‘Redemptive Love’. Adya offers heartfelt guidance on shifting our cultural and religious programming that we are a mistake to be fixed, offering an alternative of absolutely accepting ourselves as we are.

About Kira Celeste

Over the last few years, Kira has fallen deeply in love with Deerheart Sanctuary. The aliveness of the forest and sweet stillness of the yurt have stolen her heart and made themselves her home. She is honoured to be holding space for Silent Meditations and Satsangs this summer.
