Classes & Private Sessions
“Why do you teach yoga?” This is the foundational question a teacher asks herself or himself.
Why do I teach yoga?
I teach yoga to help people live better lives.
You define what ‘better life’ means to you. I help you get there.
Public Class Descriptions & Information
(Please note: there is no need to register for the Tri Yoga or the Slow Flow. Just SHOW UP! I’ll see you on your mat.)
Part strengthening, part movement, part stretching. In this three part class, we first concentrate on building strength that will improve postures and everyday physical tasks. Some might call it ‘yoga conditioning’. Then we move through series of postures with the help of our breath to get our bodies moving and our hearts working. The class ends with postures that increase flexibility and leave us feeling longer, taller and more relaxed. Suitable for advanced beginners to advanced intermediate students.
When: Wednesday evenings 6:00-7:15 pm and Saturday mornings 9:00-10:15 am
Where: Hubbards Sailing Club #215 Hwy 329, Hubbards, NS
Flow through sequences of refined postures and breathing techniques to move beyond the limitations of the body and mind. Move slowly and deliberately to focus attention and to free our minds from the busyness of everyday life. In this class we work on strength, flexibility and focus through standing, balance, floor and twisting postures. We also explore the healing potential of deep relaxation and restorative postures to feel gloriously blissful afterwards. This class is suitable for all levels, but especially for advanced beginner and intermediate students.
When: Fridays 9:30-10:45 am
Where: Art of Wellness Studio, Chester Shore Mall 4115 Hwy 3, Chester, NS
Yoga for Absolute Beginners; or, for those who Absolutely Want to Begin Again
Two parts – Four Weeks each
Part One: This is a four week session in which you’ll learn foundational yoga poses, techniques, and philosophical ideas to keep you safe and motivated for years to come. This is your opportunity if you’ve always wanted to try yoga, but you’ve not had the time or inclination, or if you’ve felt intimidated joining other public classes. This class is also for you if you have tried yoga before but for whatever reason you let your practice go and want to begin again.
Part Two: Building on your foundation, you’ll delve deeper into a better understanding of responding to your body and mind with honour and respect. You’ll deepen your postures and learn ways to take your practice into your everyday life for better movement and increased freedom from limitations of the body and mind.
When: Thursdays April 18 – May 9; May 16 – June 6 6:30-7:30 pm
Where: Hubbards Sailing Club #215 Hwy 329

Relaxation “parties” have become very popular because, well, because they’re yummy. This is what one participant wrote to me after her experience:
“There is absolutely nothing that can compare to a splendid afternoon with amazing women to rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. Even though I spent Friday night and all day Saturday at a Shambhala meditation course, I still managed to relax more deeply. …DiDi, what a generous donation to the auction at Shatford School. Thank you. You set a tone at the Sail Loft that was even more peaceful than that beautiful space normally bestows. You are appreciated. –Lisa (who participated in a group deep relaxation party)
