Joyful movement. When you hear those words, the first picture to come to mind is of a child. Whether it’s a toddler taking those first few steps or a child running on the grass on a warm spring day, kids feel – and show – the joy in moving their bodies any way they can. However, as our busy lives as adults keep us on the go, this type of joyful movement that used to relax our mind and our body seems to fade away and we become increasingly tense, leaving little room to do much else than to shut off at the end of the day.
Kaleidoscope Spirit is a centre for joyful movement of the mind and body. We offer opportunities based on the ancient practice of yoga, for kids, adults and the whole family. We believe that movement starts in the mind with perception and travels through the body. With this in mind, our goal is to focus on flexibility of the mind, variety for the body and movement that is continuously changing.
Movement is for everyone, at any age, any gender and any mobility. We often hear people say they can’t do yoga because they are not flexible. But movement should not be feared as restrictive; it should feel joyful. It’s not about what we think our bodies can or cannot do; it’s about the freedom of exploring where our bodies want to go. In the consciousness of our own individuality, the joy of movement allows us to let go of stress and tension and appreciate where we are at that day, in that moment, in our own mind and body – that is yoga. When you experience joy in your mind and body, you can improve health and wellness in many areas of your life. It can reduce stress, increase emotional intelligence and improve mindfulness and digestion.
Kaleidoscope Spirit recognizes the challenges that come with the demands on modern day families. At Kaleidoscope Spirit, we offer adult and kid yoga classes that run simultaneously – a great way to save time and take care of the whole family. We also offer a mobile program with classes running currently in schools, businesses and medical centres.
At Kaleidoscope Spirit, our vision is to offer convenient opportunities for the whole family. As human beings, we are constantly in motion, growing and changing all the time. We believe that joy is a choice that embraces movement of the mind and body in their various stages. When you choose joyful movement, you choose opportunity, you allow change to happen and, like a kaleidoscope, you create beautiful new images of yourself.
