THE BRAIN CLEANSE

COMING TO SVA SUMMER 2014

MORE DETAILS COMING SOON

We are honoured to welcome our beloved teacher Siddhi 

and her husband Stefan back to SVA!

    


BLOG

"GREY MATTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS NOT INCLUDED"

There were no care instructions included for that precious mass of soft pink nervous tissue called the brain when we first arrived on planet earth. And even as we baby boomers move towards the retirement years, we still don’t readily think of the importance of brain health. We are only now beginning to realize how critical it is to care for our brains, especially with the increasing incidence of brain diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Enter Siddhi, an experienced transformational teacher and healer, yogi, and founder of the recently launched movement, The Brain Cleanse, to the rescue. The Brain Cleanse is comprised of various modalities of movement, exercise, mantra, mudra, yoga, journaling, and the use of turmeric, all designed to nourish and awaken the power of the brain for optimal health and longevity.

With over three decades as a practicing yogi and teacher trainer of yoga with hundreds of dedicated followers, Siddhi and her husband, Stefan Hermann, enrolled EDG to brand this new startup company. The Brain Cleanse will eventually become a worldwide phenomenon as the word spreads about the importance of sustaining one’s brain health by offering a variety of locations and facilitators with certifications and supplements at spas, hotels, assisted living facilities, luxury residential settings and yoga studios.

Long live the brain and the rest of your vital parts!

Meera (Sandy Reid) SVA YogaMeera (Sandy Reid), SVA Owner

"Watch intensely, listen entirely, and you will learn constantly about loving fully" ~ Meera

Meera has  been devoted to the path of yoga for over 14 years.  Though initially drawn to the practice for physical fitness, yoga soon inspired profound self-inquiry, radical expansion, and a passionate engagement with life.

Meera’s deep commitment to community, and to inspiring transformation in those around her, led her to teaching. It is Meera’s sincere joy to share Sattva Yoga, as developed by Master Teacher Anand Mehrotra, whose wise teachings and loving presence taught her to trust her inner guide fully and live with graceful passion in all moments.  It is Meera’s daily inspiration to share this practice, wisdom, and invitation to vibrant living with her students.

She is a RYT-500 and is certified to teach Sattva Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, YogaFit and Hot Yoga.  She has completed advanced teacher training with Stefani Hoyt and Madorla Yoga Institute; Master Teacher and divine inspiration, Ma Siddhi; and Sattva Yoga Founder and Master Teacher Anand Mehrotra in Rishikesh, India.

In each of her classes, Meera creates a compassionate and non competitive environment where all students are invited to celebrate all aspects of the unique human beings they are.  Though the style of practice may vary – from high-energy Sattva journeys to soothing therapeutic flows to cleansing Kundalini sets – each experience with Meera is empowering, and invites a connection to one’s own divine inspiration and infinite capacity.

Jazmine Juarez, SVA Guest Student Teacher

Jazmine holds a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Psychology degree from the University of Guelph. As a counsellor, she understands the importance of engaging in self-care and has found yoga to help her in a variety of ways; including and not limited to self-exploration, self-expression, self-nurturing, mind-body connection, and as a form of self-care (coping and relieving tension).

The importance she places on yoga led her to pursue her passion in yoga. She completed her 200 RYT (Reflections Yoga in 2014 with Paula Tursi, Vinyasa Flow) and is registered with Yoga Alliance. "As our understanding deepens, we can discover how our movements are a reflection of our mental state. Working with our physical, mental and energetic bodies all at the same time helps us to move toward real transformation." Paula Tursi, Founder and Director of Reflections Yoga

The yoga training provided her with the opportunity to immerse herself completely in yoga teachings and a space for self-reflection and self-study (personal growth). In turn, her yogic journey has provided her with a space for personal transformation, a path to deeper self-knowledge, and she aspires to guide students into their own personal journey and transformation through yoga. 

"I look forward to continuing my yogic journey with my mentors, Meera and Sylvie, as they have made my SVA experience and introduction to Sattva yoga truly inspirational. It is a true blessing to be part of the Sattva community." Light and Love ~ Jazmine

Through the synchronicities in life, we had the great pleasure of meeting and getting to know a very talented local mantra musician, kirtan artist and fellow yogi - John William Bauld (MahaDeva).

His yoga path lead him to study yoga and Vedanta philosophy at the International Sivananda Yoga and Vedanta Centre (Bahamas).

The crisp, clear and smooth qualities to his voice are what set him apart and the music and mantras shared transcend time, space and logic carrying us to a place of peace and of freedom.

The live kirtan experiences are wonderful events to be a part of!

We thank you for sharing your beautiful gifts with all of us and for being part of our journey!
