≈ GAEA’s EARTH_Yoga Community Circles
￼Take the most courageous journey.
There are incredible stories and great adventures happening on mama’s
The circle, as a sacred symbol, has been celebrated and honoured as a reminder of the cycles and movements of life since the beginning of time. Men and women gather in circles as a way to heal and strengthen their community: their shared intention is the powerful tool used to support their practice.
The first four rounds of Gaea’s Community Circles are meant as an introduction to the healing power of the elements through the practice and principles of yoga, Reiki, and breathwork. Each class will end sipping herbal teas blended to sooth and stimulate the element and chakra that were the focus of the class.
The first circle is dedicated to the Air Element:
We are our breath. The breath influences our posture, blood circulation, metabolism, the quality of our muscular structure, our thought patterning, our nervous system, the way we deal (or not deal) with emotions, ultimately our overall health.
Air and oxygen are our main energy source: deep breath reaches every part of our body and brings in greater vitality. Each (deep) breath does count.
Anahata, the Air Chakra, the Heart Chakra, sits at the center of our chest, comfortable between our two lungs. It governs major physical functions and, on a more subtle level, the sense of protection, warmth, and transformation that manifest in the body.
The quality of the breath can determine whether we keep lingering in stagnation or we learn to break through, relax, and move with the flow of life. The breath helps us clean the body, the mind and the spirit and, by removing toxins, it sweeps away obstacles along the way.
This first circle revolves around the practice of Pranayama: through a series of breathwork techniques, we will delve deep into the body and make space in busy minds and busy bodies and between our busy thoughts to ultimately relax into a clearer, more present, and natural state. Pranayama will be accompanied by a grounding yoga asana practice.
The second circle will be dedicated to the Earth Element:
Earth represents stability and consistency; it is the safety of the ground under our feet; it is nourishment and sustainment; it is fertility and fullness. It can be a supportive energy that holds us and let us move forward, or a sticky platform that holds us back. The Earth Element is the bones, the tissues and the ligaments in our body; it is our structure.
Fear and resistance are the main emotional symptoms of imbalance of this element. The body clenches and tenses to hold onto the precarious condition that we are used to be living in, dreading to fall off of it as that is all we know and are familiar with. Unbalanced Earth Element manifests in disrupted fluidity in the body and symptoms such as PMS, sleeping and digestive dosorders can arise. It can take many forms but it all starts from resistance to the inner energy flow.
Through an alignment-based Vinyasa yoga practice, we will work our way into the mind through the body to unlearn to tense, while learning to release, deal with nervousness, disconnectedness and insecurity, ultimately surrendering to the ground.
The third circle will be dedicated to the Water Element:
Creative, instinctive, adaptable, unconscious energy that makes up our body: it is our blood, lymph, mucous, digestive fluids, perspiration, skin, tissues, and organs.
Water Element resides in the kidneys, the bladder, and the reproductive organs where life force and vital essence are stored and water regulated. Restoring the elasticity in the joints, gracefully lengthening the muscles and sweating out all that we are unnecessarily retaining in the body will be key to greater balance on a mental and emotional level. Healthy Water Element has the quality of fluidity.
The final Gaea’s Community Circles of this series will be dedicated to the Fire Element: Fire represents change and transformation; it recalls rituals and rites of passage.
Manipura, the Fire Chakra, spreads its bright light from the center of the solar plexus where one of the major transformation processes in our body takes places, that of digestion. The solar plexus is our second brain, the seat of our emotions. It connects the element of Water with that of Earth. Fire, along with the other elements, concurs to weave the tapestry of life.
Strong negative emotions such as anger, resentment, jealousy and bitterness can be produced and stored at the center of our body. Chinese have the same respect for the liver as we have for the heart.
The power of the warrior resides in the solar plexus; with a vigorous, but attentive practice, we will activate the fire and work with Manipura energy to release unnecessary resistance and finally shift towards transformation.

Gaea's Earth- Yoga Community Circles
This pioneering approach is suitable for women whether they are beginners or more experienced practitioners of yoga. It addresses discomforts which may not be serious enough to warrant treatment or for which no treatment has been identified or for which existing treatments are rejected by women due to known side effects that they wish to avoid. Classes are compatible with medical treatments, including surgery as well as addressing discomforts related to stress, anxiety or traumatic events in a woman’s life cycle.
Generally regular yoga classes are attended by many women yet a number of these women are affected by symptoms that are not considered as treatable or worth treating or by chronic conditions that are controlled yet impair their overall wellbeing. This is particularly the case relating to reproductive health, with a large proportion of discomforts experienced by women of all ages linked to a less than optimal experience of the transitions in their reproductive cycle from menarche to the menopause.

Yoga is fabulous for creating good foundations in life. From learning to be still inside, to allowing the safe expression of all emotions, yoga offers us tools to cope with the challenges (and often mundaneness) in daily life and discover the magic and potential in every moment.

Toddlers are all about observing and copying, though they like to engage in activities in their own time and own way.

* Learn how to better communicate with your toddler, understand her need to express and explore, learn loving tips for dealing with tantrums, sleep problems, separation anxiety and communication styles that will encourage a sense of security and co-operation with your toddler
* Interact with your little ones with this specifically designed infant activity as you build strength and improve alignment whilst they are stimulated to thrive, with breath, sound and movement yoga practices.
* Our mobile baby group helps to improve co ordination, flexibility and confidence, and teaches your little ones to RELAX!

Inspired by the ancient Chinese yoga tradition, Yin Yoga can be seen as a form of self-administered acupuncture.
Like acupuncture, it works by applying temporary pressure on the meridians (energy channels) in the body and helps to boost deficiencies in chi (vital energy) and augment the flow of it through the body. As a result it can help with physical, emotional and mental imbalances, and can be particularly helpful if you are suffering from fatigue and depleted mental and physical energy.
The yin yoga postures are also a time for quiet contemplation and are a great means for developing a greater sense of inner mental calm.
Yin yoga is also a very good complementary discipline to more dynamic practices such as Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga and can really help to open up and release particularly tight areas of the body including the back and hips, as well as aiding in keeping the joints in the body supple and healthy.
Meditation is the prize in Kundalini Yoga. The physical practice - the yoga exercises - is merely a warm up to focus and clear the mind during meditation. Emphasizing Kundalini's meditative practice, this class will include a brief warm up and a longer meditation (20-40 minutes). The class will end with a brief deep relax. Meditations may include breathwork, mantra, and / or mudra. There are 100's of meditative practices in Kundalini Yoga so the experience can vary significantly from one class to the next. All meditations help bring about a still mind, clarity of thought, a sense of peace.
