Walking With Love & Gratitude
For 18 months, we have felt all kinds of emotions around our beloved community, Yoga School and Wellness Centre. We have been hopeful, inspired, and motivated as we adjusted and refined with the changing restrictions to our offerings. Now we are again faced with a challenging moment, which has taken us by surprise and has stirred up an even deeper well of questions and soul searching. As we all know, this is where our yoga practice can be both greatly challenging, and greatly rewarding.
As a part of the larger community on the Sunshine Coast, we have all made different choices. Our choices reflect whatever felt like the right path, for ourself, our family, and for our community. None of us have previously had the experience of a pandemic, so we have all been taking steps into new territory, learning as we go. We are all simply doing our best in trying times; trying to remain witness to the hurricane of information and emotion around us.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Yoga by the Sea Wellness Centre and School have worked in partnership with the public health agencies to ensure we are part of a coordinated response to protect our community. We have followed every mandate as per the Provincial Heath Office and Work Safe BC, and we will continue to adapt and operate according to the local regulations and law. In this, we are observing the yogic practice of finding peace – finding our centre – with what IS.
Following direction from the Provincial Health Office, proof of vaccination (BC Vaccine Card and photo ID) will be required to attend in-studio Yoga by the Sea Classes/courses beginning September 13. The health and safety of our students, teachers, and team remains our highest priority, and we will be operating in accordance with guidelines created by BC Provincial Health Authorities. Some of our classes will continue to be available on ZOOM, for those who are unable or not yet ready to join us in person. Please see our Covid-19 page on September 13th.
Our intention is to continue walking through the Fall, focused on the Wellness Center and School we have created as Yoga by the Sea, and filled with love and gratitude for the community that we have built for the past 16 years. This is what is right in front of us for Now. One step at a time.
We welcome you to register for Fall sessions which will begin mid-September. You may now book drop-in classes again though our online registration system! We are in the process of refining the schedule with the teachers, and will create a plan of action for both in-house and virtual classes. Stay tuned after September 12th! If you decide to continue to stay home, you can still find our class archive and other tools for your practice on Facebook and YouTube, or join us for in our online studiothrough ZOOM.
If you are studying with Lyne, Nicola, Roberts Creek Tai Chi or Melissa, please contact them directly to see what plans they have for the Fall!
We continue to be deeply grateful to you for your compassion, grace, resilience, and adaptability.
Please listen to this recording by Michael Singer, the author of the Untethered Soul and one of my special teachers. It is perfect for guidance for the current environment and every life situation, and is also my practice and what I return to again and again. This recording is about 23 minutes long.
