Upcoming Workshops + Events

Go Deeper Workshop Series

This mini-workshop series aims to support yoga practitioners interested in deepening their current asana practise. Each 90-minute class will be focused within the Vinyasa style of yoga and have a working theme for the month. The intention of this workshop series is to guide practitioners through more advanced postures within the class and then allow for a month of assimilating new postures into their own personal practice.

Silent Night Full Moon Community Meditation

Gather with us on the last full moon of the year to sit in stillness and celebrate our wholeness (holy-ness), our community and the shared sacred space of the Hut.

Gong Meditation

Enjoy a healing afternoon of Gong Meditation with Christopher Cole.

Sound healing and gong baths are ancient tools used to bring body and mind back into balance, combat depression, confusion and low energy so we can feel more fully alive.

Christopher brings all of his skill as a healer and a pure intent to benefit everyone. The effect is therapeutic: you feel more balanced and aligned on all levels, you leave feeling refreshed and awakened. You may also experience an energy release that clears up past traumas and dis-eases.

Solstice Celebration

Join us on the winter solstice to celebrate. The open house event is an opportunity to gather, connect and appreciate our practice and each other. Bring your family, bring a musical instrument if you play, and bring an open heart, as always.

Our Unique Set + Setting 

Our Unique Set and Setting

 

Situated on a quiet country road, surrounded by organically farmed land, steps from the walking/cycling “Friendship Trail” and a kilometre from the sandy shores of Lake Erie, Stream Yoga + Meditation offers a unique setting for yoga + meditation classes, workshops and retreats.

“The Hut” at Stream (as we affectionately call it) is an expression of our wish to benefit living beings by creating a sacred space for the exploration of yogic, contemplative and human well-being practices of body and mind, open to all, regardless of background or beliefs.

Inspired originally by the shape of a yurt, our custom-built octagon studio resonates with a variety of meanings, including: the dharmachakra or wheel of dharma, the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism, and the 8 Limbs of Yoga.

Testimonials

What Our Students Say

“I have cervical (neck) spine degeneration and osteoarthritis throughout my body. Stream is yoga with a purpose — YOU! My body has responded so positively to the professional instructions by Heather and Megan, I am now able to move with much more ease. Plus, it’s a fun place to go, the setting is ethereal and the positive vibes have a healing effect. I never miss a class there!” Grace

“Meditating with a group is really wonderful for quieting the mind and finding balance. Heather very gently shares her insight and knowledge.” Loraine

“I LOVE the gentle yoga classes! It’s like getting a massage.” Paula

“I have to admit I was skeptical about yoga. Before we tried it, I said to my wife, ‘This woo woo hippie stuff ain’t for me.’ But now, it’s our Tuesday thing! After the first 15 weeks I can honestly say I feel better. My flexibility has improved, my all-around mood has changed. I don’t sweat the small stuff as much as I used to. And, no matter how I arrive at class, I always feel better when I leave. Megan and Heather make me feel like one of the group.” Dan

“There is ‘yoga’ but THIS is so much more. You don’t walk in feeling intimidated or feeling you should hide at the back…it’s a supportive group where we share and learn how to shine our light. Heather and Meg are wonderful teachers.” Rebecca

“I have been practicing yoga with Megan and Heather for over two years now. It is the one activity, quite frankly, that keeps me from having chronic back pain. The instructors are fabulous and it truly doesn’t matter how good you are. Just show up and do what you can! The atmosphere is very non-judgmental and people of all levels and abilities attend the classes. There is a very welcoming “come on in and try it out and see how you like it” mentality.

I have also had an interest in meditation for many years, and have I been practicing weekly at the Wednesday evening sessions for some time now. The meditation teacher, Heather, is a warm, authentic and caring individual who is interested in the healing of others and the world. She creates a sacred space that is safe and nurturing for you to explore meditation, and provides instructions for mindfulness practices that can be done both on and off the cushion.

I am incredibly grateful that this wonderful experience is available right here in Port Colborne.”

every moment a new beginning

“It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view.

When you flip the switch in that attic, it doesn’t matter whether its been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades.

The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before.

Its never too late to take a moment to look.”
