About the event
Join herbalist Emily Boese and yoga teacher Shyla Gaebel for this extra special plant walk and gentle, trauma informed yoga in celebration of Summer Solstice and National Indigenous Peoples Day.
*Note* This class is free for Indigenous folks and they will be given first chance to register.
If the class doesn't fill up, we will open it to settlers, by donation to the Circle Project.
Medicinal plants grow all around us on Treaty 4 lands.
Come learn about the wild medicines that grow abundantly in your backyard, alleyways and parks.
This walk will focus on plants that are growing and ready to harvest in Spring.
By the end of the walk you will have learned how to safely and sustainably identify, harvest, and use these plants with yourself and your friends and family.
Following the plant walk, Indigenous Trauma-Informed yoga teacher Shyla Gaebel will lead a gentle, accessible 30 min yoga class. (extra mats will be available for anyone who needs one).
As a 36-year-old Dakota woman from Sioux Valley Dakota Nation, Shyla has been on a journey of reclaiming her roots and identity. She was raised by her mom in Regina, Saskatchewan on Treaty Four Land. For as long as she can remember, she was ashamed and embarrassed about being Indigenous. In 2018, she decided to find her birth father and this was the piece that opened the door to her own healing and reclaiming.
She received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification in 2019. Recently she received her 300-hour Trauma Informed Teacher Training Certificate and has made it her mission to teach the healing practice of yoga to Residential School Survivors and the First Nations Community. She strongly believes this modality should be accessible and available to all.
By teaching from an Indigenous perspective, Shyla shows how one can find balance — mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually through the ceremony of yoga.
Please feel free to contact me via the website if you have any questions at all about this class.
