Fitness by Jacflash’s Power Yoga Women’s Workshop with Yoga Instructor Kay Ghajar and Zero Waste Event Coordinator Sophi Robertson

Last Tuesday we hosted another amazing yoga workshop!

At all of our workshops, all levels are welcomed and encouraged!

Yoga mats were provided for use for the evening by The Local Lululemon.

Our instructor 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.

Zero Waste Lifestyle Influencer- Sophi Robertson

Sophi is the Zero Waste Event Coordinator for the Toronto Tool Library. She has been striving to live a waste less lifestyle with her family of three since 2016. She documents her journey on social media as @YourEcoFriend.

At the workshop, Sophi helped us find simple and accessible solutions to reach our eco lifestyle goals.

She also spoke to us about Furoshiki- Japanese art of cloth wrapping.

We learned how to cloth wrap gifts beautifully without tape or any waste. The wrapping becomes part of the recipient’s gift so that they can reuse the cloth themselves or for another gift. We’ll cover hard to wrap gifts like wine bottles and toys. This can also be applicable for transporting other items such as food.

Extra special thank you to our assistant yoga instructors walking around, giving everyone one on one love, answering any questions and helping us in our poses!

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!
