Health Within Holistic Centre, 500 B Queen Street, Charlottetown


February 10 - Rest and Renew A candle-lit class.

Friday 6:30 – 8:30 PM $20 inc. hst We are a sleep deprived society. Restorative Yoga can be used as an aid to sleep or as a way to relax deeply while awake. It uses cushions and bolsters to ease the body into deep relaxation. Quiet music, soft lights, and other relaxation techniques will be introduced. Suitable for beginners and all levels and styles of practice.

February 11 – Yin Yoga and Mudras – The Quiet Challenges

Saturday 9 am -12 noon $25 inc. hst Yin Yoga has been used successfully to help sufferers of trauma and PTSD. For everyone, it introduces the idea of “non-striving” to the yoga mat which creates deep relaxation similar to that found in Restorative Yoga. It can challenge the body and help create true flexibility. No falling asleep on the mat with Yin Yoga! Instead, you find a deep acceptance for your body and emotions. With its long holds and well-placed supports Yin Yoga can open the hips and ease lower back distress. Mudras are intentional hand gestures which we use consciously and unconsciously to help us in life. Anjali mudra or Prayer Posture is used by many spiritual paths; putting your hand to the forehead to help you think is an ancient mudra, also. Adding specific mudras to the quiet holds of Yin postures brings to the practice a meditation with intent. The practice ends with a led Yoga Nidra or Yoga Sleep. Suitable for all levels, including beginners.

Pre-pay for all five: $110
tax included

Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour and the advanced 300 hour courses begin fall of 2017!

Yoga Ink is a registered private training school in PEI for Yoga Teacher Training, both the foundational 200 hour course and the advanced 300 hour course. New 200 hour and 300 hour courses are beginning September 2017! Funding possibilities exist with the new status with student loans from banks and perhaps from Skills PEI.

The foundations course is eclectic and comprehensive delving into many yoga topics with detail such as asana, meditation, pranayama, how to design classes, how to demonstrate, speak, teach! And many, many other topics are introduced and studied including philosophy, the Bhagavadgita, the Sutras of Patanjali, ethics, and lifestyle. A qualified guest instructor teaches basic anatomy.

Many styles of yoga are introduced to see how they vary in action but are similar in intent. Students get to "try on" Yin, Astanga, Kundalini, Power, Hot, and Restorative and participate via dvds the styles of some of today's top teachers i other styles.

Students teach each other almost every weekend getting comfortable with public speaking, "teaching" vs. "leading" classes, learning to see the way the energy moves in a posture, and probably the most fun - how to assist and how to adjust students in postures.

The course is eight weekends, usually they begin in September and end in the spring.

The advanced 300 hour program is thirteen weekends and has a yoga therapy bend to it. Certified teachers attending bring with them their style and experiences which help round out the course. Each weekend we meet students teach each other with classes for people with special needs (such as movement disorders, scoliosis), classes that target specific body parts, classes that spark their interest (such as kids yoga, Yoga for Compassion Fatigue). In addition there are great books to read and discuss, yoga topics to explore deeply, lifestyles choices to try on, and much much more!

Yoga Ink is recognized by Yoga Alliance (USA) as a registered Yoga School for 200 hour and 300 hour courses and Ruth Richman is recognized by them as a E-RYT 500 (experienced registered yoga teacher 500 hours level, their highest level of recognition).

Ruth has had thousands of hours of training in many styles of yoga and Yoga Therapy. She has been teaching Yoga Teacher Training for 11 years and Yoga classes for more than 35 years. She also has a Yoga Therapy practice called Yoga for You!

To receive more information about the courses or to talk to Ruth email yoga or go to the website yoga or call 902-583-2674.
