TOFINO INTENSIVE.
Exploring things from a new prospective.


JOIN NICOLE LOHSE. FALL 2017

This 4 day Intensive is an opportunity for you to explore and challenge yourself to be curious and look at things a bit differently through the practice of Yoga, Feldenkrais and Somatic Experiencing. Your thought and behavioral patterns. Your movements. Your actions. Your reactions. Get ready to dive in deep and come out with a better understanding of how to live with less stress, be happier, have more energy and be more aware of what it is you’re capable of. 

  • Play with techniques that help regulate your nervous system allowing you to become more present and focused whether you're out in the surf, on the mountain, sitting in a staff meeting, being social or simply on your own.
  • Discover ways to process and express your thoughts and feelings to help improve your relationship with yourself and others.
  • Learn ways to find a sense of peacefulness even if you tend to always have a busy mind.
  • Explore the habits and patterns that are holding you back. Begin to feel more motivated, confident and excited for life.
  • Be curious with how you move helping decrease pain and gain better flexibility, mobility, co-ordination and strength. Learn why 'stretching is over rated' and that the Buddha belly may just be the next new trend.

THE CLASSES.

This intensive will allow you to DIVE DEEP into exploring your thought and behavioral patterns, your movements, your actions and your reactions with curiosity and a sense of playfulness.

Classes will vary from 1 hour - 2.5 hours and will range from meditation, movement and discussion. Nicole will share her knowledge that she has gained through her studies of Yoga, The Feldenkrais Method and most recently, Somatic Experiencing. Her focus is awareness, and her teaching is all about working with the nervous system to discover ways to rewire and change the habits and patterns that are limiting you from your potential.


THE ACCOMMODATION.

TOFINO.

Tofino in October is a special place. With it being the beginning of storm season, it means big waves and rainy days. This is Tofino at it's best! The tourists have gone and it's the perfect time to get a real sense of the magic this small town at the end of the road has to offer. Surrounded by temperate rain forest, ocean and endless sandy beaches, there's nothing better than soaking it all in with few others around. Whether it's sitting on a couch gazing out through the window or wandering around outdoors, chances are you will get lost in the misty, fairy tale beauty of it all and never want to leave!
