CLOSING LETTER

Dear Shri community;

 

As we near our seven year anniversary, we are writing to you to let you know that Shri Yoga is closing on Sunday April 22, 2018.  We opened Shri with the intention of creating a sacred space and a community space; this intention has been well realized over the last seven years. We recognize the decision to close as the completion of that intention, the ending of a cycle and an opportunity for new growth to arise. 

 

Coming to this decision has been not been easy, especially in consideration of you, the students of Shri. We wish to sincerely thank you for your commitment to yoga, your loyalty to the studio and your engagement in the interwoven community that we have built together. Together we have created a beautifully layered, vibrant and dedicated group of teachers and students. We trust that the essence of this experience will continue to live on in your hearts as we know it will in ours. 

 

Now on to practical matters. Public classes will end on Sunday April 22. At that time, students with outstanding class cards will be able to have their classes honoured at Shanti Yoga (Montreal West), Yoga on the Park (NDG) and United Yoga Montreal (Downtown). Between April 22 - 25, you will receive a letter via email showing the number of classes remaining on your account. This is what you can bring to the studio of your choosing. Students with an unlimited membership of either three months of one year will receive a separate email with more details on their memberships. 

 

If you are interested in following your Shri teachers, their email address and / or website are listed below. Please feel free to contact them for updates on their teaching schedules. By early April, we will send out another email detailing the teaching plans of the various teachers and the Shri website will also list individual teachers’ schedules for the next couple of months. This will include Mona’s teaching plans as well. 

 

You can continue to reach Scott via his osteopathy website, www.scottsternthal.com. 

 

Clearlight’s classes will continue at a yoga space located in the Queen Elizabeth Health Centre (one street east of Decarie), and she has posted a schedule on her website:  www.yogaspace.com

 

You can listen to a personal message from Mona herehttps://youtu.be/apV9iT0FdpY

 

Thank you for a great seven years. May our paths in yoga continue to cross. 

 

Namaste

WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A Turn toward Sublimity - an Exploration of Tantra Philosophy for Today’s Yogis
Feb
3
to Feb 4

WEEKEND WORKSHOP: A Turn toward Sublimity - an Exploration of Tantra Philosophy for Today’s Yogis

Often inaccurately presented in popular media, Tantra is a profound system of spiritual philosophy that can inform and support a life-affirming yogic life at all levels of our being. This weekend, our guest teacher returns to Shri Yoga to guide us in exploring it together. Our focus will be specifically on the nondual philosophy of what has come to be known as Kashmir Shaivism.

 

In this seminar workshop, we will both discuss this philosophy based on passages from important texts in nondual Tantra and practice various yogic concentration techniques that open us to experience sublimity within our own immediate everyday life experiences. If you enjoy philosophical discussion combined with affirming celebration of the complexities of life, come join us. All are welcome.

 

HOURS: Saturday 11am - 1:30pm & 3pm - 5:30pm

              Sunday 11am - 3pm (with a short break)
