Gentle Yoga – Sun Jan 23, 2022


 “Be Soft”

Sunday January 23rd    1 – 2:30 p.m. at the Oakdene Centre in the gym

“Be Soft.
Do not let the world make you hard.
Do not let pain make you hate.
Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

Join Dee Monroe, on Sunday, 16th January at The Oakdene Centre in Bear River, for a yoga practice of gentle heart-openers/back ends and hip openers.

Opening our hearts for healing and compassion, on both a personal and global level, and hip openers to let go of anger, frustration and all that holds us back from our higher self. 

This will be followed by a 30 minute Yoga Nidra (or yoga sleep): a guided meditation for deep rest and nourishment. 

All levels of yoga practice are invited, including complete beginners.

The cost is $20.

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or phone me at +16047910387. 

Please bring a small pillow or folded towel/ blanket, extra blanket for warmth and, if needed, a bolster for under your legs and an eye pillow if available.

Thank you!

Best wishes,
Dee Monroe

Dee Monroe’s Bio

I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2010. I studied with Karuna Erickson and Alli Bogard in Nelson B.C.

Coming to yoga rather late in life-I was in my 50s-my mantra has been “if you have breath in your body, you can do yoga”

I spent a year in Windsor, Ontario teaching yoga before moving to Chilliwack, B. C. There I found a niche teaching chair yoga and floor yoga to Seniors, along with Hatha classes, Kid and Family Yoga, Yin Yoga, Gentle Flow, Restorative Yoga, and Yoga Nidra.

My style is quite slow with an emphasis on the breath and connecting with self-mind, body and spirit.

I remain true to my original mantra “If you have breath in your body you can do yoga”
