Events & Activations AT WERKLAB

internal COMMUNITY EVENTS

JANUARY events

The theme for this month is about nourish and restore. As we peacefully say goodbye to what 2018 was and hold onto the memories it wove into our lives, we step forward into a year of meaningful flow. Flow doesn't mean it'll be an easy 365 days, we know there will continued times of trial and testing of our resiliency ahead. However after the cracking-open-lessons of 2018 and acknowledging how the pendulum swings, we can feel it in our bones that the energy of this upcoming year will bring light, fullness and expansiveness.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

GUIDED MEDITATION (30 mins)
Instructors: Ailey Jolie & Connor Burns
Description: This all levels meditation practice is an opportunity to give our bodies a break, give our mind some space and give our hearts some much-needed attention. Through this practice we develop a greater sense of focus, patience, relaxation and care.


PILATES (50 mins)
Instructor: Katie McKenzie
Description: 
Beginning and ending with breath, this 50 minute power Pilates Class is all about alignment, connection and strength of total body and mind.


THE RELEASE (30 mins)
Instructor: Katie McKenzie
Description: 
Take a deep breath, and reset. This class is the softer side of breath and movement. In 30 minutes you will be challenged to let go and connect to your breath, your body, and your soul. 


FLOW STATE (60 mins)
Instructor: Hayley Dobson
Description: 
In flow state we seek to acknowledge and release blockages in the body in order to allow a clear channel for creativity and vitality to flow. Through meditation, breathwork, and playful asana we will work through opening the hips, the heart, and the spine - acknowledging and releasing what is no longer needed. Post-flow we will take time to free-flow journal, creating space for creative release, followed by savasana for integration.  


THE MOVER (45 mins)
Instructor
: Jeremy Vaughan
Description:  A true focus on mobility, stability, core function, and foundational movement patterns that most have lost due to their work/life environments. We will create mindful movement throughout the body to establish good movement patterns and alignment.


WELL YOGA (60 mins)
Instructor
: Chantal Russell
Description: Being WELL is a way of life, rooted in simple choices we make every day. Learn yoga + lifestyle practices for Wild Embodied Liberated Living (WELL) and transform everyday routines into sacred rituals to free tension from your body and soul, awaken your innate vitality, and experience deeper well being.
