What’s Good Wellness: Virtual Yoga Sunday’s @ What’s Good
Make time and space for your stillness & peace
We all need a little calm away from our individual storms. With our homes becoming our workspace, classrooms, gyms, etc. it can be hard to find peace and tranquility. In an effort to support your health more fully, we are now providing a weekly wellness offering to bring stillness, peace in mind and relaxation to your week.
According to Chinese medicine five element theory, the energy of the winter season is all about conservation and slowing down. It’s vital for wellbeing, physical, mental and spiritual health. In an effort to support your health more fully, we are now offering a weekly wellness session to focus on stillness and peace in mind.

“Katrina was a fantastic resource during my pregnancy and was so skilled at providing acupressure treatment for me. She even taught my husband pressure points to ease discomfort during labour. Everyone at the clinic is so friendly and it’s a very warm and welcoming environment. And the food is delicious! Charleston is a phenomenal chef and so personable. What’s Good is just what Oakville needs!“
