Paint + Meditate
Connect with your inner child and give yourself the permission to play without interruption.
We’ll guide you through a self-loving meditation and use the colours and tools in front of us to paint intuitively. The only rule is to follow your heart and trust your intuition.
What do you feel? What do you want to remind yourself? What is your inner child telling you?
Embrace every mark. Release the desire for perfection. It is the imperfections that create the beauty.
No colour theory, meditation or yoga experience required. All supplies are included. JBYOB (just bring your own body).

Restore + Thai Massage
End the month in absolute bliss.
We’ll tune into our nervous system, allowing mental, physical and emotional release to begin. Supported by props – bolsters, straps, blocks, blankets – you’ll settle into deep relaxation. We’ll hold poses longer than in a traditional flow class, but you’ll feel no strain or effort.
As you settle into your practice, our Thai massage practitioner will provide a gentle stretch of your arms and legs. Thai massage, also known as “lazy person’s yoga,” gives your body room to release and breathe. Some of the benefits of Thai Massage include muscular release and an increase of blood circulation in the body.
We’ll finish in a rewarding savasana with an optional head massage.
Accessible to all bodies. Comfortable, layered attire is recommended. Just bring your own body. We’ll provide mats and props.
