introduction to 8 limbs.jpg

introduction to The Eight Limbs - The Core Philosophy of Yoga 

July 7th 2019 - 3-8pm

includes 3.5 hour course, plus organic dinner $85 or $80 Sustaining Members

The practice of yoga is an art and science dedicated to informing us of the union of Body, mind and soul. Its objective is to offer a roadmap to the practitioner reaching their full potential in this lifetime. In short it is about making balance and creating equanimity so as to live in peace, good health and harmony with the greater whole. This art of living is the foundation and yoga philosophy was formulated into a text called The Yoga Sutras in 200 AD. This sacred text describes the inner workings of the mind and provides an 8 step blueprint for controlling the restlessness of the human monkey mind so that we can enjoy a more peaceful, joyful life. 

This half day course will teach the basics of this philolosphy and ideas so that we can bring these teachings into our daily life and enjoy the fruits of our efforts in the process.

Universal Alignment Meditation Journeys, with Nancy Arruda

Meditation Journesy  UAMJ 2019 Vidyas-sign.jpg

Universal Alignment Meditation Journeys

Facilitated by Nancy Arruda of Universal Sky

Connect with your Higher Self, Inner BEing, Unconscious Mind, Spirit Guides, Angels and the Divine. Intermediate & Advanced Level Discussions for people who have foundational understanding on; Energy, Chakra, Aura's and other Metaphysical Topics.

This  Meditation Journey is in alignment with the current astrological configurations.  Planetary alignments which create energetic pathways to what we are experiencing on a personal and transpersonal level.  Whenever we have something that transpires in life it is believed to be due to the planetary alignments and activations that are taking place.
Before the meditation journey, I will describe the energy of what is happening in the universe and how that energy is currently impacting us.  This gives you the ability to reflect upon your daily, weekly or monthly activity and relate to what you are learning on a personal or spiritual level, which integrates self-awareness, healing and inspiration.
Then I will channel a guided meditation journey that works with the universal frequencies so that we can benefit from it and consciously work to align and/or transform the vibrations within life. The theme is different from week to week, and some examples are; raising your own personal vibration, infusing love, abundance consciousness, removal of obstacles, gaining understanding of the life lessons, Chakra alignments, Auric cleanses, strengthening your aura, meeting your Spirit Guides and Angels, and so much more…
During the meditation I hold an intention and create a sacred space for everyone participating which allows for safe and easy access to your Higher-Self and your unconscious mind.
After the meditation, everyone is welcome to share their experience and if you do you will receive insight into your personal experience and symbolism within your meditation as it applies to you specifically and what you may be experiencing now.

Join me into gaining insight, clarity, peace and the tools to BEing and feeling aligned within the Self through these Guided Mediation Journeys.


Location:  The Vidya Centre for Yoga & Wellness, 238 Barrie Street (Highway 27), Thornton, ON  www.yoga-wellness.ca
 Registration:  Please contact Nancy Arruda directly through FB messenger, call or text 905-717-1452 or email.
