Ayurveda Yoga Study

Ayurvedic Consultations

If you recognize yourself in the statements below, an Ayurvedic Health Consultation would be very supportive for you: 

  • You are busy and spend a lot of time caring for everyone else - partner, children, parents, friends, clients, co-workers
  • You are tired, run down or depleted
  • You know that something is out of balance in your own body or mind
  • You have excess stress in your life, and you need more coping strategies
  • You've read books and done workshops to figure out how to live a healthier lifestyle... you have so much information that you don't know where to start
  • You NEED an approach to health and wellness that is personalized, holistic, balanced and goes beyond the physical

I have been studying Yoga & Ayurveda for many years increasing my health, energy and well-being using the tools I have learned. I can teach you what I know! In this time I have acquired powerful strategies to move into alignment with my "Unique Rhythms", increasing my resilience, balance, and sense of well-being.

I've noticed that a huge obstacle when making lifestyle changes is follow-through. We get busy, or life throws us a curve ball, and our best laid plans fall to the way side and we go back to our old ways. This is why in the initial consultation package the first follow up appointment is included in the cost - I am truly here to help. And there is also a package that sets you up to reconnect each season so we can address any shifts (we are always changing) to keep moving you closer and closer into alignment with your True Nature. 

The Ayurvedic approach has many benefits:

  • Get to know YOUR unique natural rhythms
  • Discover how to work with your unique rhythms to find more balance and harmony
  • Understand why the lifestyle choices you make can throw you off balance, and learn which options will get you the health and well-being results you are looking for
  • Learn how to recognize when you are moving out of alignment so you can anticipate what you will need to do to maintain your optimal health BEFORE you're way off balance
  • Be supported during your transition to a healthier lifestyle so you know where to start, and how to continue on your path to optimal health and increased well-being
  • Increase your energy levels and well-being so you have more to give yourself, and all those you support
  • Learn about and develop your strengths - in body, heart, and mind - so you can deepen your understanding of your needs for well-being
  • Integrate coping strategies for stress management so you can enjoy increased resilience, balance and harmony in your body-mind and life
  • Develop your understanding of yourself and your life as a whole, so you can integrate life challenges physically, energetically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually 

Testimonials

Andrea Gummo

The training was carried out in a respectful, safe atmosphere in which everyone felt valued and included. It was wonderful to see everyone progressing on their yoga journeys with the support and mutual learning of the group. Most important to me, the training was also a lot of fun.

Vicki Woolfrey

In this teacher training course, I was listened to, cared for, and encouraged to grow in my own direction by listening to the intuitive teacher inside.

Cathy Nicholson

I am grateful that I discovered Janati. The yoga studio is absolutely spotless and the instructors are excellent. I look forward to going to class and feel an instant sense of peace when I walk through their doors.

Babi Sugarman

Janati is not only to practice yoga. It is a place where I meet beautiful souls, re-connect with my body, and nurture my mind. Namaste.

Kym Riley

The material covered in this course is invaluable and the practical experience helps you to be the best teacher that you can be.

Libby Macdonnell

At 74, I appreciate the gentle individual teaching, the beauty of the room, and the attention to inner awareness. Many thanks.

Restorative Flow

Laura McCrimmon

From this training I feel that maybe nobody sits perfectly in Dandasana or perfectly in Warrior II, but uniquely. This uniqueness is what makes every student and every teacher entirely perfect.

Alanna Kuhn

Janati Yoga School is the place to go when you need a calm sanctuary after a chaotic day. The studio is beautiful. The staff are friendly and helpful. The teachers are knowledgeable and are able to work with individuals with varying needs and goals. Mona Warner is the owner and a teacher. She is an incredible spirit with a wealth of knowledge. She always goes above and beyond to ensure that her clients are happy and thriving in their classes. My favourite class is the restorative yoga. It’s exactly what you need after a long week at work: calming, grounding, relaxing and rejuvenating. A wonderful way to start your weekend. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who is looking for a world class yoga experience.

Our discussions around yoga philosophy were my absolute favourite part of the course. I discovered my mind could bend even more than my body!

Melanie Robb

Thank you for the opportunity to practice yoga! I won a session of classes from the Memorial Farmer’s Market, and I am very grateful to Janati Yoga School for their generosity. It is a very welcoming place to try yoga for the first time. I really enjoyed the small classes and I appreciated the kindness and attentiveness of the instructor. I plan on signing up for more classes! Many thanks, Melanie

Ayurvedic Consultations

Introductory Package

The initial package that I offer is:

  1. 1 x Initial Ayurvedic consultation w Mona (2 hrs)
  2. 1 x Follow-up consultation w Mona (1 hr) 

During the initial consultation we will talk about your health goals and tons about what you do, how you do it, and how that's going (including your poop!). We can do the initial consultation in person, on the phone, or via skype - what ever works! After the initial consultation I will email you a list of recommendations to explore, then you will go home and try them! About 4 weeks into trying out the recommendations, we will reconnect for a follow-up so I can answer any questions, concerns or doubts, and we can refine or amend what you are doing to keep you moving in the direction of optimal health and wellness! 

Investment $350 (includes HST)

Seasonal Follow-Ups

Once you've done the introductory package, this is the next step. It is helpful to check in at the season changes to continue refining your understanding and routines. This program establishes you more deeply into the routines that are supportive of your health and well-being. It provides structure, support and accountability to help you follow through with your lifestyle changes in order to get maximum benefit from your self-care practices. After each consultation, I will email you the list of recommendations (like we did before).

Why work with Mona?

If there's anything I have a lot of practice at, it's getting back into a healthy balance – basically I'm good at getting back into alignment with my own unique rhythms and my "Self".

All I want in this life is peace, joy, to be of service, and ease in being for myself and for everyone around me. I want to live life fully, vibrantly, enjoyably, and from my heart – which is hard if we don't have the health, energy and grounding to support our path in life.

I have had the opportunity to overcome some big health challenges in my life:

  • anemia at age 3
  • heightened sensitivity
  • visual impairment
  • TONS of muscle sprains, strains, and dislocations leading to years of chronic pain
  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • seizures (grand mal and petit mal on a monthly basis) from the ages of 23 to 31
  • multiple miscarriages
  • depression
  • and food sensitivities (including wheat, soy, and refined sugar)

Quite a fancy list, isn't it?

One of my biggest challenges as I worked to improve my health and well-being so I could thrive in my life, was other people telling me what to do without listening to me (as if I was just like everyone else), and the harshness (or my perception of it) of many of the methods and options available to me. None of these were invented or created with the sensitive person in mind! I spent a long time looking for alternatives that were more subtle and gentle, yet equally as powerful. Guess what? I found brilliance in the teachings of Yoga & Ayurveda

And now, thanks to these teachings, tools and skills, I am living a life of vibrant health and service to my community!

I was born a teacher with a peace seeking soul, and how I live my life has to be in alignment with this. It's my purpose. Helping others is my passion. Now I do both!

I specialize in teaching Yoga & Ayurveda - the sciences of mind and healthy lifestyle. I'm good at it, and I use these very teachings every single day in my own life. 

I work with a few simple principles:

  1. You are perfect as you are in this moment. I really and truly believe this.
  2. Each person is unique. How I work with you is unique to you. I don't believe in one size fits all.
  3. The work we do together will be all about YOU. My role is as a teacher, mentor, guide and facilitator.
  4. Ayurveda teaches us that everything in the world is both a medicine and a poison at the exact same time! Through our work together we will discover what is your medicine
  5. I believe the power of Yoga & Ayurveda is in their subtlety. In our work we will go deep and work in the subtle. Wait and see the ripple effect this has!
  6. It's about alignment & rhythm – We will discover your unique body-mind rhythms, and then you can align those with daily choices. As we clarify your unique rhythms, you're going to learn what you say YES to, and what you say NO to.
  7. Each person has different 'layers' and part of our work together will be to to integrate the five layers of your being – the physical, energetic, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
