    Svaroopa®Yoga specializes in releasing tension in the body in a gentle but profound way.  Classical yoga poses are done with precise alignments, props for support and individual adjustments to allow muscles to lengthen out. Opening along the spine, breathing practice and relaxation quiets the mind, calms the emotions and allows an experience of inner peacefulness and bliss.


    Le Yoga Svaroopa® vise avant tout à réduire la tension dans le corps d’une façon douce mais profonde.  Les poses de yoga classique sont effectuées dans des alignements très précis; des outils pour offrir de l’appui ainsi que des ajustements individuels permettent aux muscles de s’étirer.  L’extension de la colonne vertébrale, les respirations et la relaxation détendent l’esprit, calment les émotions et offrent une expérience de paix et de bonheur intérieurs.

    The Move is part of the worldwide community of ecstatic dance. 
    Rather than dance as entertainment, we dance in celebration, play, exploration, expansive awareness, transformation, building community and expressive freedom.  As a form of meditation-in-motion, the music starts slow, builds energy, then ends in a meditative space.


    The general guidelines are about creating a safe and sacred space to move however you wish, honouring your body and allowing respectful connection with others in your dancing.  We move in barefeet (or socks of course), everybody is welcome (children accompanied by an adult), please no talking on the dance floor, and it's a drug/alchohol and scent free zone (no perfume pls).  You can come to the whole event- starting with an opening circle and centering, or just drop in for a visit during the evening.  We ask movers to refrain from talking on the dance floor to allow one another to deepen into their experience, but if you would like to chit-chat, there is comfortable space in the lobby for hanging out.


    Cost is $10.

    In this workshop Ingrid will take you through the process of making cordage (rope) from plant fibers right off the landscape around the Wakefield Community centre.  She will teach you when to harvest various plants, how to process the stems into usable fiber and how to use the ancient "revers wrap" method used by prehistorically by cultures all over the world to make the cordage. Then she will teach two ways to use this cordage and plant and transform them into beautiful utilitarian bags or baskets.

    As an expecting or new parent, you want the best for your unborn child or baby. You’ve doubtlessly done your research on how to support your child's development from the moment he is born.

    But did you know that how your baby moves from birth affects her cognitive, emotional, social and physical development for life? Did you know that, as a parent, you can have a significant impact on that development and help prevent behavioral issues, learning delays, disruptive emotional responses, and social insecurity?

    Waldorf Early childhood educator and neurodevelopmental practitioner, Yvette Halpin, has been providing guidance and learning to parents and children for over 20 years. In her seven-week FUNdational Parenting series, Yvette delivers weakly insights, in a bilingual format, on the importance of:

    -          Primitive reflexes to the development of the brain;

    -          Gentle guided movement and massage to facilitate normal growth and development;

    -          Proper sensory stimulation to strengthen the pathways in the brain;

    -          Rhythm and predictability to stabilize baby’s emotional responses;

    -          Proper nutrition;

    -          Self-discipline… and more.

    Join Yvette and other new parents and their babies every week for a fun and instructional afternoon that will benefit your child for life.

    What parents are saying about the classes:

    “Yvette Halpin is a unique and gifted teacher, for children and parents alike. Her workshops have given us concrete and effective tools for parenting our daughters. Even more importantly, they helped to remind us of the love that lies at the core of parenting, and that our role is to raise these little beings to be whole, happy individuals. Highly recommended!”

    “It (FUNdational Parenting Class) was extremely interesting (not mention fun) to join other moms and babies that attended the workshop. Learning about each baby reflex and their importance to brain development was very informative and helpful. I can now recognize each reflex and facilitate their integration through change of behavior, especially in a world dominated by baby gadgets. You do inspiring work. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.”

    “I enjoyed Yvette's workshop series immensely. Yvette imparts not only her knowledge and understanding of childhood development but empowers you to draw conclusions about your own parenting approach. She is such a lovely, warm individual that just spending a few hours a month in her presence leaves a lasting impression: it has an impact on how you raise your children and how you go through life as a parent and in general. I also enjoyed meeting other parents and having the chance to share and learn together. I wish I could carry on - just for the monthly opportunity to express, assess and evaluate in a 'secure' space. I would have no hesitation in recommending the workshops to anyone and everyone.”

    Hi Lindsay,


    I am wondering if you could change the blurb once again in the web site. Although at the web site it hadn't been changed with the last blurb. 


    Could you also change the age for 0 -1 year olds because it really is that age that i am targeting.


    Thank you and i realized the classes start in two weeks from now, week of the 28th, so we'll check in in two Fridays from now to see if we have 4 registered. 

    Bye for now

    “I enjoyed Yvette's workshop series immensely. Yvette imparts not only her knowledge and understanding of childhood development but empowers you to draw conclusions about your own parenting approach. She is such a lovely, warm individual that just spending a few hours a month in her presence leaves a lasting impression: it has an impact on how you raise your children and how you go through life as a parent and in general. I also enjoyed meeting other parents and having the chance to share and learn together. I wish I could carry on - just for the monthly opportunity to express, assess and evaluate in a 'secure' space. I would have no hesitation in recommending the workshops to anyone and everyone.”
