Yoga and Pranayama
This yoga session will begin and conclude with breathing exercises aimed to stabilize the busy mind. We rely on the principle that when the breath is stirred, the mind is stirred while when the breath is calm, we feel stillness inside. The heart of the session will be the practice of simple and effective yoga postures. The Pranayama is the discipline of breath. Yoga postures will be enriched by special attention to the breath. The session is guided by Kasia Chelkowska, kinesiologist and certified yoga instructor. Welcome, everyone!

L'eau et notre santé
**This lecture is offered in French only, however feel free to join us!** Loin d’avoir livré ses secrets, l’eau reste un mystère pour la science. Au point que le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) classe cet élément à la première place des dix plus grands énigmes de l’Univers. Quand l’eau est pure, comme l’eau de source, ses cristaux sont symétriques et hexagonaux. Quand l’eau est polluée ou perturbée, ses cristaux se fragmentent et l’eau perd toutes ses vertus bénéfiques originales : hydratantes, curatives et antiseptiques. De nombreuses expériences révèlent que toute substance entrant en contact avec l’eau laisse son empreinte. Come learn with our naturopath Ilona Dowgiallo on oxygen rich food, the source of good health and great vitality. Ilona graduated in 1992 at the Graduate School of Naturopathic Quebec. She also holds a PhD in physics followed by 14 years of research in the Department of Nuclear Medicine and Radiobiology CHUS in Sherbrooke. She took additional training in acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine and teaching in health science (University of Montreal). After all these years of research and practice, Ilona offers a unique approach to naturopathic consultation.
