Tending To Your Inner Garden

The place that lives inside of you, hoping you’ll visit often.  The place that needs to be nourished with all the things that feed your soul, on a daily basis.  The place that longs for your truth and needs to be held with love, care and compassion.

Join me on a 6 month journey, created for you. A place to tend to your inner garden; nothing to prove, no expectations, simply a space to show up exactly as you are. 

Together we’ll be tending to ourselves in cycle and in resonance with the rhythms of the earth.  Remember we’re not alone on this wild human journey, and there is a special magic that happens when we come together in like hearted community and engage in healing practices.  

Our time together begins this fall, as the leaves drop away dancing in the wind and we practice putting down what no longer serves us. In this letting go, we create fertile compost for the earth, and for ourselves – this letting go is a gift. The autumn is also a potent time to set intentions and to nurture your foundation to prepare for the coming months of deep nourishment and darkness. 

We honour the cocooning of the winter months, a time to rest, restore and look within for renewal, our seeds resting in the earth. 

Together we’ll create a warm, inclusive, and powerful – yet gentle container, with the invitation to reclaim the parts of ourselves that often get lost in the day to day of our human lives. The parts of us that thrive on grounded practices that connect us to beauty, wonder and peace in our own inner being.

As the wheel turns, savoring a slow  emergence with the spring, feeling into your own unique process.  The spring heralds a time of new beginnings if we allow it, the bubbling of energy and the stirrings of new movement – in the world within our inner garden and within the world around us.

Through each month we’ll explore different aspects of ourselves and our process:

November – Grounding and Creating our safe container

December – Softening and Letting Go

January – Visioning and Receiving

February – Healing and Being Held

March – Integration

April – Joy, play and wonder

In each of our sessions together we’ll explore:

Grounding Practices, Breathwork, Gentle Movement, Poetry, Song, Journaling and Meditation.

Each gather will also include a guided relaxation and healing sound practice.

“A reminder: You are not a Before and After story. You don’t need to turn every experience of your life into wisdom, or prove to anyone how far you’ve come, or rush your way toward some other version of yourself. You don’t need to dissect yourself endlessly in order to extract your life for the consumption of others. You don’t need to be a beacon of hope or an example of overcoming. You don’t need to minimize your struggles OR your joy for the comfort of someone else’s story of you. You don’t need to bypass what’s true and real by performing what you think you’re supposed to be. You don’t need to be beyond what you teach or what you share, what you offer or what you give. You don’t need to deny when things are hard OR when things are easy, or when things feel right in the middle. You can let yourself be human, no matter what roles you play or what identities others hold you to, no matter what others expect of you or anticipate from you. You get to be human. You get to be human. You get to be human.”

Day 25 Amber’s Yoga Support

“Genius is the ability to renew one’s emotions in daily experience”

Paul Cezanne

Welcome to day 25 of Amber’s 30 days of yoga support during this challenging time.

I am SOOOOO grateful you are here today!

How are you getting through this time in this chapter of your life?  What is keeping you lifted, and inspired to get up everyday and start again with so many unknowns?  Are you able to reflect on perhaps what you do know you would like your life to look and feel like when we once again shift into a new normalcy on the other side of this?  Are you able to put the unknowns aside, and instead focus what you do know to be true for you right now.  That is my challenge for you today.

I love the above quote by french artist Cezanne, for if we don’t take time to integrate and renew the experiences of our life then we never actually allow ourselves to grow and truly flourish, into the genuis inside of each of us.

The ways we renew ourselves, on a daily basis, dictate how we thrive in our bodies and our minds.  Today we’ll be exploring a restorative posture, a very powerful restful practice to bring you back to your center.

In the video I offer you a few different suggestions to try, all different approaches to being in legs up the wall.  If your day allows, I encourage you to spend at least 10 – 15 minutes here, give yourself permission to fully experience and integrate this time on your mat (or in your bed).

This particular posture is very healing for our nerves, it’s a wonderful practice for when we’ve been going through a time of stress, or we just feel depleted. It also relieves pressure and heaviness in the legs.  Taking this time is like giving yourself a little gift everyday.

Thank you for joining me today, you inspire me in so many ways.

The world needs your genius, so please take care of yourself.

With so much love, until tomorrow

Winter Solstice Relaxation and Renewal Workshop

Our next Relaxation and Renewal Workshop with Margie and Amber will be Sunday, December 22nd from 2:00 – 4:30 pm.

Honoring the darkest day of the year, a time of deep introspection and self nourishment, we will lead you through a beautiful afternoon of yin and restorative yoga practices, pranayama, connection, tea and snacks, an extended relaxation with the gong and the crystal bowls, and perhaps a little foot massage.

This workshop will help to set a beautiful peaceful rhythm for the holidays, and support you to gain clarity for the new year ahead.

Space is limited and these afternoons tend to fill fast, we keep these workshops very sacred and cozy with smaller numbers.

If you’d like to attend give us a call or send us a message, please note payment is necessary to reserve your spot.
