Nicole Balogh is the Founder and Director of Serenity Now Yoga. She began practicing yoga in 1996 as a therapy to recover from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She offers a mindful approach to yoga that is tailored to the specific needs of each individual no matter where they are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
The skills Nicole has learned in Quantum Touch, Reiki, Shamanic Healing practices and Alchemical Healing have been an integral part of her own healing journey and she is honoured to be able to share these medicines with all those seeking help on theirs. Holding sacred space for the unfolding of whatever needs to arise in order for physical, spiritual, or emotional health of an individual is her intention. This allows for any of the tools and skills she has in her medicine bag to be available as needed for the highest good and joy of everyone involved. Sharing these experiences with others is inspiring and she is grateful to have the tools to help us human beings manage the challenging changes and turmoil that come with the cycles of growth we experience. The results are what is truly amazing and awe inspiring.
Nicole’s passion for energy healing has lead her become the 2nd Alchemical Healing teacher in all of Canada. This is a comprehensive healing art form that allows all her skill and experiences to shine through as needed. During the initiation to becoming a teacher, she received powerful energetic transmissions passed on from the founder of this tradition, Nicki Scully and her teacher and mentor Debbie Clarkin. This experience connected her more deeply to the lineages of the wisdom keepers and spirit allies of this work and has greatly expanded the power and results of this work.
Therapy Ball Massage for Common Stress and Pain – This workshop is divided into two sections, lower back, hips and Upper Back and Neck. It provides targeted self-massage trigger point therapy by using a selection of balls and focused movement. This invaluable therapeutic series helps to penetrate through layers of skin, fascia and muscle and massage deeply into your high tension areas. After this class you will be able to practice in any of these areas for as long as needed, targeting what ails you. You will know where your sore spots are and be able to roll them out as often as needed. These are tools to take home to manage your own stress and pain. Therapy Balls will be provided and available for purchase at this workshop if you wish to take them home.
Delving into and Fortifying the Root Chakra – Many spiritual traditions see the material world as a trap and resist the density of the body. There’s no doubt that the physical world is less expansive than the limitless realms of the upper chakras, yet this density is precisely what keeps us grounded, connected to our bodies and the earth, focused, disciplined, and dynamically present. Grounding is not the antithesis of spiritual experience; it is literally the root of it. Nicole will share information and practices that focus on fortifying this essential foundation…the container or temple so we can enter fully into the body and embrace the first chakra element, which is Earth. Bring a yoga mat as we will practice movements, postures and practices that enable us to plug in and both open and strengthen the channels that connect us to the Earth. Here we receive the support and nourishment we all deeply need.
