New Workshop at the Studio!

We have many new workshops coming up, and this next one is going to be HUGE! Introducing:

Fresh Start, Healthy Habits with Meghann Lynch
With the start of a new year, many want to use this as a time to try new goals, intentions, or dare we say it…. Resolutions? Many give up after only a few weeks and end up feeling disappointed and blame themselves for not having enough discipline or motivation.

Why don’t our resolutions stick? Join lifelong athlete and wellness advocate  Meghann Lynch as she guides you to make SMART goals, and use mind and body wellness to make them STICK!

Learn why resolutions don’t stick, why we get sick, stressed, and end up hating what should be a learning journey of continual self-improvement.

Learn about how essential oils can help your physical and mental wellness, make a toxin-free yoga mat cleaner of your own to take home, and even get a special gift!

Sign up now, spaces are limited!

Now Offering Reiki with Ida Bell!

We are so excited to be able to offer Reiki treatments with practitioner Ida Bell starting November 14, 2019! Every second and fourth Thursday afternoon, Ida will be available for appointments to help you clear out and heal. 

Wondering what Reiki is? Here's a quick info session for you: 


Reiki is a simple, natural, non-intrusive Japanese energy technique using the universal life force energy found within us all.  The Reiki Practitioner’s hands will be placed either on or above the body. The act of laying hands on the body to comfort and relieve pain is practiced every day. Human touch has warmth, healing and peacefulness. If your life force energy is low, or if there is a restriction in its flow, you will become more vulnerable to illness. When the energy is high and flowing freely, you are less likely to feel sick, tired.

Our Parasympathetic Nervous System which allows our body to heal itself is often depleted due to everyday stresses and we often do not get enough sleep to repair ourselves as we are meant to. Reiki can be a support option when our body and mind cannot enter the restful state we require during deep sleep. It is said that a 1-hour session is equivalent to sleeping 4 hours in our rest and repair state.

Reiki stimulates and accelerates the natural healing potential of the body
It is a restorative treatment that renews and balances body, mind and spirit.
Reiki helps promote and speeds up the rate of healing
It enhances and complements other forms of health care and never interferes.
Helps the body detoxify
It is safe to use for people of all ages and physical condition.
Read more about Reiki and the benefits of a treatment on my website: https://www.thenurturingswede.com/services/

Please let us know if you are interested in booking your treatment! We will work with your schedule as much as possible.

If you know of anyone else that would be interested receiving a treatment, the current rates are 30 mins for $25 and 1 hour for $50.  Please visit The Nurturing Swede website: www.thenurturingswede.com to get more information.


Hope to see you at the studio soon :)

Grand Opening a Huge Success!

Mayor Fraser Presenting the Certificate

What an amazing Grand Opening! Thank you to everyone who came out to see the space, try a demo, meet some of our teachers, have some snacks, and enter our giveaways. It was an incredible day and I'm still trying to process all of the feel-good vibes each and every one of you sent our way.

We were very fortunate to have our Mayor, Tony Fraser, as well as some of our Councillors visit and present us with a certificate for opening a business in our community. 

Local media attended as well, and we are very grateful for their lovely coverage of our event.
Students Try a Class
We had new faces to the studio, some of which even tried some of our demo classes to see our different styles of yoga. 

Side note: we tried to get the Mayor and Councillors to do a class but they had to get back to the Morewood Winter Carnival so they couldn't... we will try to get them out next soon... and get some photos, too!

All-in-all, it was a wonderful day full of smiles, fun and laughter, and I can't believe how fortunate I am to be able to do this.

Thanks for coming out, I hope to see you at a class soon!

Yin Yoga and Essential Oils Workshop


I am so incredibly excited to be able to bring one of my very good teacher-friends, Maitri Devi (from TriWolf Shanti Healing), to the studio to give a wonderful Yin Yoga and Essential Oils workshop! This workshop was my own introduction to Yin Yoga, and it was an uplifting, healing experience that I will never forget. I walked in thinking I could NEVER hold a pose (no matter how gentle or relaxing) for any period of time, and having serious anxiety over it.... By the end of the workshop, I was in savasana and never wanted to leave!

This is a wonderful workshop to introduce essential oils into your practice - you'll experience how much deeper you can go when the added element of high quality essential oils are added.

This workshop requires preregistration and spaces are limited. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Date: Sunday February 17, 2019
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Place: HealthGirl Studio, Chesterville
Your Investment: $30 + HST
