In this class we begin with a short and light breath work session, followed by a 25 minute light vinyasa flow to get your body moving and energy flowing . Once we have nourished every part of our body with movement – You will be brought into a comfortable resting position  to begin a group reiki session . During the reiki session, there will be both hands on ( at your preference) and hands off energy work to continue bringing balance to the mind, body, soul, and nervous system, releasing any left over stagnant or stuck energy, and increasing your overall sense of well-being . The session will end with some sound integration with singing bowls to complete the process. Imagine this as an energetic massage..  leaving your physical body completely relaxed, your energy body cleansed, and your mind at peace. 


This session is great for those who are looking to ease stress and /or anxiety, relax the body, physical healing , pain relief, and an overall sense of well being in your body.


In this class you are invited to flow through a hatha yoga sequence that reaches all parts of the body to lead you toward feeling relaxed, restored and refreshed. You are guided to consciously connect to your breath and the rhythm of the music. You will receive the space to move at a slower pace, feeling and listening to the inner guidance of your body.


A class for all levels, this two-part class is a combination of the strong vinyasa – to warm up the body and let go of any fatigue, and the receptive yin yoga, holding poses for 2-3 minutes promoting balance throughout the nervous system and allowing for a sense of peace and relaxation. This class is designed to create balance and harmony within your mind, body, and soul.


This class is a mix of vinyasa flow to strengthen and engage your mind and body, combined with a few yin or restorative poses to drop you deeper into a place of stillness . This class also encourages following your own bodies wants and needs by free flowing wherever you feel called to do so.


This light class is a slow and gentle practice for any body and any level. In this relaxing class we use yoga balls on the trigger points in your body, as well as straps to get deeper into the tissue of your body.

Shannon Banfield
With great reverence, to Shannon, yoga is so much more than the physical. She is always seeking out fun & funky ways to switch up transitions & flows, while still honouring yogic roots; doing her best to blend the traditional with the modern! We powerfully utilize the breath as an anchor, to establish & strengthen the intimacy between the mind & body connection, energies & the soul, between the all pervasive & what resides within.

Her sankalpa [intention] with each class she holds, is to curate the utmost safety & sacredness for all; to go where you need to go, within any & all aspects of yourself. To witness your unique, most authentic individuality, while reminding you of our interconnectedness. Make of her classes, whatever feels best to you - the possibilities are limitless.
