With connection and growth as our intentions, YYOGA invites you to connect with kindred spirits from our community to deep-dive inside and tackle some of the questions we hold about these beautiful temples we live in. In an experiential evening with local thought-leaders, we will explore how we view our bodies and the truth about current health trends.
Did we mention there will be live music, yoga, meditation, expert panelists, snacks, and cocktails?!
Check out the details below:
Hop into our Kitsilano studio and grab a treat before making your way onto the mat. Christie Baumgartner will meet you with curated beats and a juicy flow class leading into a restorative meditation.
Grab a snack and/or cocktail and prepare to talk body image, diet trends, hormones, self-love, and so much more. After an enlightened and mindful conversation with our panelists, grab your friends and head into our lounge to visit the Culture Craft Kombucha bar, pick up a hand mixed cocktail, and enjoy our veg-focused grazing station.
Visit our Escents Aromatherapy Blending bar or chat all things skin care with Jess from Butter Organics while Omar Khan serenades!
