05/09/18 Fitness by Jacflash’s Women’s Power Yoga Workshop with Kay Ghajar and My Sister Meagan Wilson!

In celebration of Mother’s Day, 100% of proceeds for this workshop went to Sistering.org, a multi-service agency aimed at supporting women in Toronto facing poverty, marginalization, and homelessness. Women at sistering are battling a range of difficulties including mental health problems, substance abuse, run-ins with the criminal justice system, lack of access due to immigrant/refugee status, and more. At Sistering, a small team of women work tirelessly to offer a 24/7 drop-in, that provides shelter, hot meals, crisis intervention, harm reduction, and trauma-informed counselling services. They also make referrals for housing, health, and legal and immigration services.

This workshop took place on Wednesday, May 9th 7-9pm at 165 Geary Ave, unit 2.

Kay Ghajar (@kayghajar) has been practicing yoga for almost 10 years. She began exploring different styles of yoga after taking courses in positive psychology, which informed on the benefits of yoga and meditation. After a traumatic life event in university and failed progression through traditional counselling, she started practicing yoga and keeping a gratitude jar, which began her healing process and changed her outlook on life.

Kay received her 200-hour teaching certificate at Power Yoga Canada and will lead us through an amazing Power Yoga session. Her detailed, descriptive instruction and high energy makes the class exciting, comprehendible and achievable for the women in the class who are all at different levels.

I am also thrilled to have my sister Meagan Wilson speak to us at this workshop! As she is an eminent inspiration and role model in my life, I am thrilled to have you all hear my sister speak to us about “Connecting with your core values”.


Meagan is a Mama to 4 beautiful souls: North, Indigo, Juniper and Sage and loving wife to Brad. After living ten years in Sydney, Australia she just recently took flight and put down new roots in the Canadian countryside just outside of Toronto. She received a BA from McGill University, taught TESOL to young children in South Korea and after the birth of her first child began researching and studying play-based learning, natural parenting and early childhood education from a Waldorf perspective.

After she received her Foundations in Rudolf Steiner Education she founded her business Whole Family Rhythms (wholefamilyrhythms.com). A virtual online community that provides mothers and carers resources, information and courses on conscious connected parenting that is aligned with their unique family values. Meagan is also a Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach (wholefamilyrhythms.com/work-with-Meagan) and helps Mamas and parents with the early childhood challenges they may be experiencing.

Miriam of Viberant Beings will be speaking to us about crystal healing!

Miriam’s spiritual journey began at a young age, as far back as she can remember she has had entities around her delivering messages and wanting to connect.

For over fifteen years she has been working as a child and youth counsellor in a variety of settings such as, shelters, group homes and schools. Her position allows her to advocate for and teach individuals to lead fulfilled lives.



Miriam’s journey as an empath has had its struggles, but with the tools she has learned from reiki she is able to shine a light on the trauma the body holds. Reiki teaches her to transmute and shift energy. Her sessions include tarot and oracle readings and laying crystals on the chakras to help remove any blocks. Miriam provides full body treatment that activate all the senses as she involves instruments and sound healing. She has been trained by a reiki master and was given atonement by her in June 2017.

Miriam will be working with us with a combination of spiritual guidance, pattern shifting, and energy work. She holds space and will guides us to understand and move into a much deeper level and begin our journey into a higher more balanced state of being. She assists individuals to heal painful emotions, find clarity and tap into Universal Intelligence; Creation energy which prevails within us all. Her excitement comes from empowering clients to connect to their innate self-healing, to lay their life foundation actualized from a place of self-love.

Come join us for our next workshop!

Carla Catherwood, the CEO/Founder of ARMY of SASS Dance Program know’s what it’s like to start from the bottom and work your way up.

Dedicated, focused and driven to detail best describes her work habits. With over 20 years professionally in the dance industry and 13 years as a self-made entrepreneur, she has worked not only as a professional dancer, choreographer and producer, but most importantly as an entrepreneurs, teacher, and mentor to many developing up-and-coming dancers and entrepreneurs.

Her mentoring and teaching style consists of self- effacing and groundbreaking exercises that allow people to see, feel, and nourish the very talent and joy that lives within them.

Outside of a world of dance credits from her late teens and throughout her twenties, Carla is most proud of the work she’s done developing her brand, company and licensing program “ARMY of SASS” https://armyofsass.com/

Our favourite (and most nerve wracking part at first) was when Carla made everyone “strut”!!

Carla also lead us in a discussion about our priorities and how to put ourselves first!

Kay then lead us into her one hour Power Yoga Session.

Extra special thank you again to our assistant yoga instructors.
