Spirit in Motion Yoga has been a leader in the Lethbridge yoga community for over 15 years. We share space in the Community of Christ Church, creating a peaceful, serene atmosphere to explore the inner work of yoga. We believe it’s important to create a sense of community in our yoga classes, our meditation groups and other community events. We celebrate diversity by honouring each student regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religious affiliation, financial status, age, sexual orientation, political belief, or physical limitation.
Our vision is to create a feeling of community where each student feels a sense of belonging and connectedness to each other, and perhaps to something bigger than themselves
….a place to be nurtured
…….a place of refuge and sanctuary
……a place to expand and grow
…..a place to feel the quiet voice in your own heart
……a place to discover your deepest truth
…….a place to be yourself
…….a place to just “be”.
We offer a variety of group classes and traditional yoga styles including Ashtanga-based flow style classes, as well as therapeutic and restorative yoga classes which include the practice of Yoga Nidra for deep relaxation. Each student is encouraged to listen to the wisdom of the body, taking the time and space they need to connect to breath and move with sensitivity and awareness according to their own needs. Students can also choose to start or deepen their experience through private yoga sessions to develop a practice specific to their individual needs and personality. We also offer weekly meditation groups (by donation) to teach and support the practice of meditation for both stress reduction and spiritual growth.
Yoga is well known for its power to create a healthy body, but few people realize the lifelong emotional and spiritual benefits that yoga offers. Spirit in Motion Yoga believes it is important to integrate all aspects of this beautiful ancient practice including asana (posture), pranayama (breath), sound (chanting) and meditation, yet still adapt it to our current culture and lifestyle. We encourage students to take their yoga off the mat and weave the time-honoured practices of yoga into their busy everyday lives. It is a lifelong practice of becoming more and more present to each moment, each breath, each other, and our planet.
