Workplace Mental Health Talks
Offer your staff a meaningful Personal and Professional Development Workshop that focuses on Mental Health and Stress Management. These workshops offer time to have a conversation about questions like: "Why do we suffer? How can we find happiness? How do I calm my body and mind?"
We explore Yogic techniques that have been practiced for centuries which can help us in modern times of stress, where many of us feel we have lost ourselves and have no direction.
Practice the art of breathing to move your energy and increase lung capacity. Learn about the intricacies of "Prana" or life force energy, while increasing your vitality. The ability to work with our breath can change so much for our quality of life, physical health and mental health. This practice is beginner friendly - no experience necessary!
A slow and accessible moving posture class to mobilize joints, and strengthen and stretch the body to leave you feeling lighter and relaxed. Shell’s guidance helps you explore your body’s alignment through a variety of standing, seated and lying down poses, as well as breathing and meditation techniques. Poses are adapted to sitting on a chair when required and many modifications are offered to help you connect deeply with your body, mind and spirit.
Supported postures, all low to the ground, long holds, deep stretches for fascia and meditative breaths that make you feel rested, relaxed and like you just had a massage. While Yin Yoga can still be a challenging practice, it is a great way to unwind from a stressful day, calm the mind, and help you sleep.
Restorative Yoga involves shapes that are fully supported with props so that no effort is required to hold them. As a society we are chronically busy, wound up and unrelaxed. This style of yoga is designed to directly affect your central nervous system and helps you relax, reduce anxiety and slow down. Many Yogis experience clarity and increased energy by weaving Restorative Yoga into their regular practice.
What's better than yoga? Yoga for two! Grab your favourite person and experience the benefits of partner yoga poses. Shell guides you through postures that are supported by a partner and are just fun to try in pairs. Come laugh, connect, feel nurtured and discover new techniques to boost your practice. Bring your friend, spouse, mom or dad, son or daughter, or even your neighbour!
Private Yoga Class or Coaching
Sometimes it’s difficult to get what you want out of a group yoga class, especially when dealing with injury or chronic pain. When you take a private session with Shell, she tailors the class to your needs. In a private class you get to stop and ask Shell questions any time and slow down or speed up the process as you like. Many Yogis would simply prefer to be in person with Shell without a large group of people or as opposed to practicing online. It's also a great opportunity to access some Yogic lifestyle coaching and check in about specific practices and techniques you'd like to introduce into your daily routine.
Shell also offers a variety of Yoga Philosophy Talks discussing the history of Yoga, what Yoga truly is meant for and how to live a Yogic lifestyle according to modern science and ancient scriptures.
Shell is passionate about sharing the Bhagavad Gita, Patanjali Yoga Sutras and Bhakti Yoga Sutras, as well as offering fun events like Kirtan, Cacao Ceremonies, Om Chanting Circles, Sounds Baths and Meditation workshops.
