Coming to Your Senses

Quiet your mind, awaken your spirit and renew your senses.

In this fun and gentle yoga workshop we will incorporate movement while exploring activities that reconnect us to our primal senses: touching, tasting, hearing, smelling, seeing and sensing.

Flying Up Full Moon Flow

Enjoy an evening of yoga + meditation with us under the August full moon.

Moon salutations and yoga flow will be followed by guided meditation and a bonfire. Weather permitting (not too hot or buggy), we will practice outdoors under the rising moon. 

Stepping into Your Truth

As we enter the height of summer and the crops in the field come to ripening, we will connect with our inner ripening as spiritual beings.

So much of the path of awakening involves letting go of old patterns. On this daylong retreat we will look to what is already here, ripe to celebrate and enjoy: our natural goodness, our ability to be content and live with ease, and the truth of our being free, awake and alive in this moment.

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.”
