Knitsana 2: Expanded Knitting & Mindfulness Workshop
NEXT SESSION STARTS OCT 17, 2022
Welcome to Knitsana 2 - if you are looking for a way to expand your mindfulness skills then this is the group for you! We will continue to use knitting in your practice with mindfulness. Knitting with its repetitive motion, illuminating colours and textures offers so much in the way of healing properties. This group will ‘go deeper’ into concepts explored in the first Knitsana group and will help bridge into your daily living.
- This group DOES NOT include any knitting instruction
- This group is presently only held online
- Space is limited so please don't wait to register
Knitsana therapeutic mindfulness group or experience with mindfulness practice.

This is an online workshop and will be held over a secure Zoom channel.
The cost of the group is $200.00 (yarn is included, see below for details) for all six sessions. Register by e-mailing Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org who will then facilitate an e-transfer payment. Because this group is considered to be therapeutic, any participant residing in Ontario that has insurance coverage for social work can apply for benefits. You may otherwise be able to write off the cost of this group on your taxes (speak to your accountant)
We will all be using the same, specially selected yarn for our mindful journey. You have two options, both are enough to make a scarf or cowl. If you are a new knitter we recommend 10” straight bamboo or birch needles. If you are a crocheter that is also fine, you will need a 6mm or 6.5mm crochet hook.
Yarn Option A. (no extra cost)
Yarn Option B. (costs an extra $10)
2 balls of Estelle Colour Flow
1 ball of Berroco Wizard
