August Weekend Yoga Retreat
Aug 19 @ 10:00 am – Aug 20 @ 5:45 pm

What is the relationship between healing and awakening? Do they go hand in hand or are they different? What is awakening? Could there be even more for you through yoga? All these interesting questions and more will be explored in the context of comfort, rest, fun, peace, joy, community, and stretching & breathing.

Either day can be taken completely on it’s own, or taken together, depending on your interest. Taken together, the experience is designed to lead you through an interesting investigation of the relationship between the two days.

What to expect: Each day there will be 2 classes of fun, gentle all-levels Yoga and Meditation, and 1 period of dialogue, exercises, and guided meditation. The location is a beautiful spacious room at Mount Saint Vincent University (free parking) and there will be a lunch break long enough to head into Halifax and back. There are accommodations available at MSVU for those out of town, 4 beds for $109. This retreat will leave you feeling refreshed, energized, relaxed and inspired while deepening your relationship to yoga.

BY RESERVATION: For more information or to *make a reservation*, please contact Mandee at or call 902-229-9642.

There are two full scholarships available that were donated to Yogaheart.

Those who attend are entitled to 5% off Yogaheart YTT beginning in September. ॐ

Mandee Labelle offers meditation through the lineage of the direct path teachings of Francis Lucille, Jean Klein, and Advaita Vedanta.

Direct Meditation from the Advaita lineage goes beyond technique and can be best described as an invitation to simply rest as the peace and stillness of the background of all experience. While fostering a deep sense of relaxation and happiness, this form of meditation is more about coming to understand our true nature rather than perfecting a technique. No experience necessary, also welcoming those with meditation experience interested in exploring the direct path.

Yoga I

Peaceful Restorative Yoga
Aug 24 @ 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm

This class is for those who would like to come to yoga, but would like something more peaceful and restorative. One does not need to have injuries or special conditions to benefit from this class, everyone is welcome. One must only have the desire to slow down and see how the simple stretches and breathing exercises can be as profound, if not more profound and therapeutic than we think.

This class is chair optional.
