Exploring Energy Anatomy

Saturday, March 18, 10:30am-1:00pm


North Flow Yoga

Nobleton ON

As much as your body is made up of cells and tissues, it’s most definitely not just flesh and bone.  You are also a highly sensitive and attuned energetic being whose body responds to your every thought, belief and emotion in both symbolic and literal ways.  Where you focus your attention/intention literally becomes the very make up of your being.

In Exploring Energy Anatomy, you will learn the many ways your physical body responds to your beliefs and expresses your energetic investments. You will study your anatomy to understand what each area represents symbolically, and what you can do to work with them skillfully. This includes learning:
  • What is behind your physical pain and what you can do about it.
  • Why your body is expressing challenges in the specific areas you are feeling them.
  • What your body is offering you through a physical challenge.
  • How to deal with chronic issues.
  • How to change thought patterns/beliefs that don’t serve.
  • How to use your breath to shift energetic states.
  • How to use the power of your presence to heal.

This workshop is open to anyone who is interested in understanding the symbolism of their physicality being beyond the literal and no experience required.

Yoga For Intuitive Development:

  • Saturday, April 29, 2023
  • 10:00am-12:30pm

While Yoga, as a physical discipline, inherently stimulates your intuitive faculties, most approaches to practice/teaching don’t consciously develop this element of practice.  Some can actually inhibit your intuitive openness!

Yoga for Intuitive Development is designed, from the ground up, to deconstruct your practice and transform it into a repeatable, accelerated path for developing intuitive clarity and higher knowing.

Discovering Your Intuitive Language:

  • Saturday, April 29, 2023
  • 2:00pm-4:30pm

Your Intuition is continuously broadcasting its wisdom to you.  This is true for everyone, always.  Yet, just because your intuition is transmitting insight doesn’t mean you are able to receive it.  Welcoming intuitive clarity – being able to interpret and act upon its guidance, requires that you share a language with your intuition.  We each have an intuitive style.  Learning to identify the unique expression of your intuitive faculties is a profoundly powerful way to empower this grace.  In Discovering Your Intuitive Language, you’ll learn the different intuitive expressions, as well as how to identify and empower your own.

The Wisdom of the Chakras:

  • Sunday, April 30, 2023
  • 10:00am-12:30pm

The Chakras (or Human Energy Centers) express the relationship you share with the fundamental lessons of “life-school.”  While these lessons may be universal, not everyone learns them.  For example:

  • Have you developed autonomy and agency in your life, or are you being held back by the limitations of the tribe? 
  • Can you create powerfully with others, or are you stuck in patterns of dispute and/or resentment? 
  • Are you your greatest ally, or does your self-opinion inhibit your ability to create and fulfill your dreams?

In “The Wisdom of the Chakras,” you will: Explore the 7 fundamental life lessons, discover how you are meeting each of them, and learn where you are losing power and what you can do about it!  Mastering the fundamental lessons of life is one of the most powerful ways to enhance your intuitive clarity and empower your life’s purpose.

Here are some of the topics I offer:


Developing Intuitive Sight: understanding your intuitive gifts


Exploring Energy Anatomy


What is my body telling me?  Learning to receive wisdom from our bodies

What My Clients Are Saying


He brought a therapeutic approach to the training that I was not expecting, but I am so glad that he did. Coming from a trauma-informed yoga background myself, I felt he was very well-versed in using yoga as a therapeutic modality to help others with their challenges. He also very happy-go-lucky and doesn’t make teaching and learning feel overly serious. He makes it feel light and enjoyable, cracking “dad jokes” often, and I think that’s an amazing attitude to have in a teacher. I think Colin is a wonderful mentor, I strongly recommend anyone to get involved with the work he is doing, because it will change your life for the better and bring you closer to your intuition.

The session on intuition was fantastic and gave me a number of insights about myself and my intuitive abilities.  I would highly recommend Colin as a guide for your life and in particular if you are already a spiritual person.  I think that Colin has the ability to take you to new levels and depths of your spirit and your intuition.  The clarity provided by Colin can help you focus on where to put your energies.  I would highly recommend Colin to anyone seeking to know themselves.
