Mobility is possible only by being mobile. Seems self-evident but this is the basis of the Cycles method for fitness and self-expression. CYCLES lifts us out of our mostly sedentary or repetitive daily action and fills us with breath, energy, flow, co-ordinations, impulse, patterns, alignments, stretch, strength, power, self-expression through individual and group exercises that ENERGIZE and REJUVENATE our natural capacities for movement.

Maxine Heppner’s technique is a mindful movement-dance training that integrates over 40 years of Dance, Theatre and traditional movement practices. It allows for each person to work within personal needs and references. > For every person who enjoys expressing themselves through movement. All abilities. For all who move and want to do it dancing.

“Deep and powerful – calling on over 45 years of experience, Maxine gentles one into a mobility energized for strength, imagination and ease.”

“How do you find your clown? By following this saying to the letter: ‘When laughter breaks out, the clown isn’t far away. When laughter dies down, the clown goes away. Where is my clown? He is born in laughter, lives near laughter and dies beside laughter. With this work people have to find a way of being beautiful and surprising… and by beautiful I mean being in the grip of pleasure or freedom.” -Philippe Gaulier

Hogtown Clown strives to be affordable and accessible. If you want to attend but can not afford to do so, please email john@johnbeale.net

Cultivate Confluence – A gathering for women-identified and non-binary

Cultivate is a day to shed some emotional layers for the new season, Spring. A scheduled day of astrology, meditation, women’s health…

Come spend the day learning from amazing healers in the city. This event runs through the day with 4 classes at each hour.

Some examples of classes are menstrual and vaginal health(by an ND), intimacy, astrology, spirit connections, aromatherapy, natural contraceptions, intimacy, acushiatsu, feeling safe, meditations and more.

Check out our site page for a schedule and teacher bios www.theloboco.ca/cultivate

This event has been put together because times are increasingly leaning towards the feminine and we are all looking to find our place in it. How can we move through our emotional pains? Where can we find support in doing so? This event allows you to find a community that has its arms opened wide and ready to hold you. As strangers we come together and heal as one. We are not different, we are the same.
