Online yoga studio of Chelsea Eisses, ERYT500. I believe that ‘yoga’ occurs both on and off the mat. It is through regular, mindful practice that we can truly bring that practice off the mat into the very real (and often messy) moments of our lives. Being able to provide a warm, welcoming and inclusive studio space is such a honour and I’m so excited to extend the reach of that space to this online community. I cannot wait to meet you and begin our yoga journey together!

The fifth class in our beginners series takes a look at the yoga concept of balanced effort and ease. Throughout the practice we will give ourselves the opportunity to observe the paring of sensations in the body and the availability of the breath attempting to undercover a place there is a susta...
The final class of our beginners series gives us a chance to practice poses that we learned in all the other beginner videos. It takes a great deal of repetition and practice to refine all we learned. Over time, and with loving consistency, the hope is we will each be able to uncover the sweet sp...
