Super charge your body, mind and spirit with this technology! Kundalini yoga uses practices of breathing (pranayama), movement (asana), meditation and chanting mantras which work on the nervous and glandular systems creating noticeable effects.  These can include energy, sharpened intuition, feelings of well being and motivation.  Join Anna Marsh for three 90 minute classes focussing on different aspects of this yoga. Each class will include focussed pranayama, kriya (yoga set), deep relaxation and meditation.  Classes are open to all levels.

Sunday, February 25th 1:30-3pmDevelop Your Super Power!  Intuition exists within us all but has been undeveloped and forgotten by society over generations.  The focus of this class will be on stimulating  the pituitary gland or Ajna Chakra the seat of our intuition.

Sunday, May 6th 1:30-3pmRelax and Let Go of Fear!  We all have emotions which keep us stuck in old patterns and habits.  This class works on releasing Fear so that we can move forward to a more serene and joy filled life.

Sunday, June 10th  1:30-3pmDetox and Recharge!  We become weighted down under the ash of metabolism and remnants of old emotions.  This class focuses on moving energy of the body and mind to keep us light and vitalized.

Anna Marsh will be forever grateful for the running injury which prompted her to try yoga.  Not only was it helpful in her physical recovery, it also gave her the spiritual path she had been seeking.  In 2012 she received her certification in Hatha yoga at the Salt Spring Centre of Yoga.  She began teaching at Sun and Sage Yoga in Quesnel, BC.  Always on a quest, she attended some specialized yoga courses, such as Yin Yoga, Yoga for Cancer and Trauma Sensitive Yoga training.  She discovered Kundalini yoga via Beyond Addiction: A Yogic Path to Recovery, a 16 week Kundalini based program.  Thus began her love of this practice.  Anna became certified as a Kundalini Yoga teacher in 2015.  She spends most of her time in Vancouver, where she teaches and works at Yoga West.  She also is involved in the Beyond Addiction program, sharing the techniques which have enhanced her life.  Along with being a yoga instructor, Anna is a licensed hairstylist.  She regularly returns to the Cariboo serving her longtime hair clients and guest teaching Hatha, Vinyassa, Yin and Kundalini yoga.

For those interested in a deeper connection with Kundalini Yoga, Anna will be bringing a variety of books and cd’s to purchase. Cash or credit cards will be accepted.

Healing Through Sharing Stories ~ Listen, Share & Heal. 

Friday, March 16th, 2018

6:00 – 9:00pm

Maximum 15 participants 

$45 registered

$50 day of

This lightly guided sacred-conversation will encourage you to open up and share the stories of your life that have shaped who you are.  Together we will share our stories on some hard topics (ex: divorce, grief, miscarriage, depression) and some light topics (purpose, fulfillment, joy) in order to be heard, seen & healed.

Each of us has experienced that moment in life when we feel completely and utterly alone in our trauma – this is an opportunity to remind ourselves that we are surrounded by support. Use your personal experiences to help others heal while you offer your wisdom, your learnings and your voice. Gain insight, guidance and love from other women who have been through similar challenges as you. Feel connected in community and supported by your sisterhood.

There is no requirement to speak in this workshop. By being in the sacred space & listening to the stories of other women, you will begin to heal on a deeply personal level.

This workshop begins with a powerful Goddess Yoga Flow.

• The power, and use, of “invitational language” and “the language of inquiry.”
• Understanding and managing potential triggers.
• The teaching tools for self-regulation.

Learn to create a strengths-based practice for your students, through understanding the definitions & key components of:
• Boundaries and self-care.
• Equality, marginalization, and privilege.

Know more about teaching in Social Service Yoga Settings, including:
• What to expect: building rapport, mandates, and responsibilities.
• Opportunities for practicum, volunteer placement, and on-going mentorship.

Tuition $360 or $310 if registered more than 3 weeks in advance.

Please note that all proceeds from this training go directly towards providing weekly trauma-informed yoga within mental health programs, addictions recovery centres, prisons, Transition Houses, youth centres, and other social service centres across British Columbia.

“I took part in the training in 2014 and I thought it was absolutely invaluable. As a yoga instructor, I want to be aware of who might be coming to my class and what they may be dealing with. Yoga Outreach provides the language and education necessary to teach not only the general population, but also those who may be dealing with trauma or other mental health issues.”
