NEW Yoga Offerings: Baby n’ Me Yoga, Children’s Yoga, & Family Yoga!

RSC is VERY  HAPPY to announce Baby n’ Me Yoga! There has been an increasing demand for a parent & baby class and we have found the perfect instructor. Lucia (as seen in the photo above) is a Yoga Alliance RYT 200 with specialized training in children’s, pre/postnatal yoga and yoga for pelvic health.  Her love of yoga and teaching (in many different realms) began more than 10 years ago, but her passion for teaching yoga really grew with the birth of her son, Benicio. She now offers parent and baby/tot, pre/postnatal and various hatha classes. Lucia takes a gentle and nurturing approach, and seeks to foster a balance of movement, calm and community in all of her classes. She loves to spend time designing unique sequences and connecting with students, to ensure all yogis — big and small — feel cared for and supported in their practice.

The parent + baby class offers a space to honour and nurture the body, mind & spirit alongside your new little one, and to share the experience with other families. This class focuses on using gentle movement to help busy parents (re)connect with their bodies, and on developing breath and other practices that can help them navigate parenthood with grace and ease. Parents are invited to engage with their children throughout the class through massage/touch, sound, textures/colours, shared poses and simply enjoying time together. Each class begins and ends with time and space for parents to connect with each other as well.

Parents and babies at all stages are welcome. Parents are encouraged to respond to their own/their children’s needs throughout the class.

Her Hatha yoga classes support children and parents to actively connect with their ‘heart’ and ‘inner self’ resulting in reduced stress, increased focus, a sense of well-being and balance.

Friday, March 1, 2019: Luca Bovo

Music in the heart, a strong passion for live performance and absolute love for the pure simplicity of natural sounds. A mix of rock and pop cover songs, where the energy of rock n roll meets the soft romance of rock ballads. From the oldies to today’s hits, your favourite songs, unplugged. 

Friday, March 8: Nolan Hubbard

Nolan Hubbard boldly emerges as vocalist, guitarist and composer of evocative acoustic-pop masterpieces with last years release of his debut album, “Luminosity”. Born and raised in the small eastern Ontario community of Gananoque, just east of Kingston, Hubbard comes from humble beginnings. Through constant touring right out of high school he has already become a regular on the southern Ontario club scene with live shows including audience requests, mashups, sing alongs, loop pedals and a vast repertoire of popular covers. He has also journeyed across Canada multiple times in the last 3 years on self-booked, self-promoted tours, and taken trips between Toronto and Nashville while recording his first album. His mix of self reflective songwriting and influence from a wide variety of genres offer a taste of the world while staying personal, compelling and the kind of music that winds it’s way into people’s souls.

Friday, March 15: Peter Woods Jazz Night

Pete Woods is a minister in the United Church of Canada and a musician with recording credits in jazz, blues, and rock n roll. He has been playing saxophone for many years in both sacred and secular settings with a wide variety of musical collaborators. With a love of melody and phrasing at the heard of his musical offerings, Pete’s shows both inspire and delight his audiences.

Friday, March 22: Tulips & Devilships

Ottawa musicians KJ Thomas and Jim McDowell make up the duo of Tulips and Devilships. The real life couple drive the music with harmonious vocals, backed by a plethora of instruments including piano, guitar, banjo, ukulele, harmonica, and more. Songs hit all over the map from sweet and introspective, to quirky and fun. Familiar tunes will hit you with nostalgia, while original songs will unfold for you new stories and melodies to love. KJ and Jim let the room predict how the music gets played- easy listening, dancing, sing-along- whatever the show brings, you’ll be sure to enjoy a good time!  

Friday, March 29: Jeff de Valk

Jeff deValk calls Overbrook home but grew up north of Toronto listening to his dad’s reel-to-reel mixtapes, records and eight-tracks and singing in the church choir. At 13 he discovered his mother’s dusty guitar hidden in the back of a closet and hasn’t put it down since. Since moving to Ottawa in 2008, he has been involved in many different groups including the seven-piece soul band he leads called the Hornettes, and Little Bones, Ottawa’s original Tragically Hip tribute act. Jeff is currently writing and recording a long-overdue solo record influenced by the classic rock, gospel hymns, and old soul music he was raised on.
