A few spaces are open for our five-day silent retreat…. RESTORE & RECHARGE THIS SUMMER  with Northern Sky Meditation & Yoga Retreats.  August 23-28, at Hudson Bay Mountain Ranch. Please register soon! For silence & transformation:  http://full-circle-yoga.ca/calendar/

 

Join Full Circle on Wednesday, July 19, for a free public talk, MEDITATION: THE FINAL FRONTIER by Roger Jaques.  We had a fascinating, spirited discussion with him last month; this session is a precursor to his six-part meditation series coming in the fall.  Roger’s passion is to provide practical applications of seemingly esoteric Yogic & Buddhist philosophy for our busy lives.  Roger spent over a decade of intense training with Geshe Michael Roach at the Diamond Mountain Retreat Centre in Arizona.  This resulted in thousands of hours of practice in the Buddhist Sutras & Tantras culminating in a traditional 3-year silent retreat.  Additional training includes direct teaching from Swami Muktibodhananda, author of the renowned commentary to the Hath Yoga Pradipika.  Please let us know you are coming, and register for this interesting talk.

 

 

Peaceful Warrior: A Yoga Workshop for Youth  We’re pleased to announce that Full Circle instructor Chrissy Melymick will be offering yoga workshops for teens in July. These workshops are being offered as empowering introductions to yoga and mindfulness and are appropriate for anyone between the ages of 12 and 18. No previous experience is required. Mixed classes and workshops are coming soon. Visit our website to save your spot!

 

 

 

Full Circle is also sponsoring a number of fantastic community events this summer:

Moment’Om:  Yoga and movement in the park… join us for Yoga, Pilates, Dance, Somatics and more as the Town of Smithers and local instructors collaborate to bring you FREE lunch hour movement classes throughout the summer!
