Important Notice for In-Studio & Online Class Participants

Dear Yogis!

Thank you so much for being a part of our growing community of yogis both in the Jasper & Lake Sam Rayburn area, as well as our online community who join us from near and far! It's been almost 7 years since Paradigm Yoga opened and since then, with your support, I've been working hard to create innovative sessions that inspire and support you on your path of yoga.

With the impact of inflation and price increases affecting the studio, I've made the difficult decision to update the public session prices for the first time ever.
These small increases to the single, 5 and 10 class passes will come into effect on 17th January. Passes currently in use or purchased before this date are not affected and will be honored for the duration of the pass.

Single Pass $13

5 Class Pass $60

10 Class Pass $110


Again, I cannot express fully the gratitude I have for you and your support, and how honored I am to share this practice with you.

With love!

Accupressure Mats to Relax and Unwind

ajnamat

I'm not going to lie, this is a little weird, but I've found a great new way to relax and unwind, even though it takes a little pranyama (aka breathing) to settle into it

While researching natural ways to reduce joint pain and neck stiffness I came across the centruies old technique of accupressure, and found that there is a simple way to receive the benefits of this practice at home in the form of accupressure massage mats that can help to restore health and balance to your body, bringing with it a sense of calm and wellbeing.

Live Streamed Yoga Session Info

We are so excited to be able to gather our community of yogis on a virutal platform.as well as in the studio.

There is nothing quite like the energy of being in the studio together to share movement and meditation, however feedback from our first online session was that there is definitely more of a sense of 'practicing together' and community when meeting live than there is with a pre recorded video. We're bringing together yogis from all over the country to share a practice and I feel thankful that it's possible. I'm also grateful to each of you that's willing to give this new platform a try, and invite me (virtually) into your home practice space. 

Some tips for gathering on zoom:

Virya: Right effort in Yoga

I have been curious this week in my practice about the yogic principle of virya. The sanskrit word virya is often translated as 'effort' but can also be translated as 'energy', 'diligence' or 'enthusiasm'. 

While it seems a simple concept that we of course should apply some effort in our practice, I found it interesting when I really started to look at the idea of 'right effort'.

Do we really apply as much effort as we could or should in some areas of our practice? Or perhaps do we sometimes apply too much effort?
