UNLIMITED SUMMER PASSES ON SALE NOW

Keep your practice going all summer long with our unlimited summer pass!  Many yogis take a hiatus from May – September, putting their practice on the back burner for the summer.  There are many reasons why you should keep your practice going in the summer months, for example,  maintaining a level head, acclimating your body, and keeping/increasing your range of motion and practicing outdoors (watch for upcoming outdoor classes).  I almost forgot – we will have more non-heated classes on our summer schedule this year, as per your requests!

UNLIMITED SUMMER PASS SALE ON NOW:

2 Month Pass Option (start anytime; passes expire Aug 31st):
$150 or $120/students/HST incl*

YOGA FOR BEGINNERS

Back by popular demand!  We understand that walking into a studio for the first time can feel … a bit awkward or uncomfortable (we’ve all been there!); however, if you have been considering trying yoga, or coming back to your mat to give it another try, this is the class for you.  Designed just for beginners, we will cap this class to a maximum, to ensure a more intimate practice.  This series of classes will slowly guide you to explore and honor the needs and limitations of YOUR body, while increasing balance, flexibility, focus and muscle tone.  By the end of this 8 week session (but likely before), you will not only feel lighter, looser and freed up in the physical body, but also in the mind.  Together, we will hold and share a space of no judgement, competition, comparing or criticism, but rather acceptance, compassion and self care.

Choose an 8 or 10 week package for the summer months!  Session will run throughout the full 10 weeks.

8 OR 10 WEEK SESSION (you choose your package)  – THURSDAYS

Dates:   Thursday June 28th – August 30th
Time:     5:30 – 6:30 pm
Investment:  $140/8 weeks  or  $165/10 weeks (HST incl.)

RESTORATIVE YOGA WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
