Greater Vancouver Area
Circle of Support Hatha
December 3, 3:00pm - 4:00pm | Northshore Elements | Alana Taylor
Enjoy a heart opening Circle of Support Hatha class with Alana Taylor. This class will celebrate the connection we have with ourselves, each other and our broader community. Namaste means "we are one" and this class, through movement, song and messaging will ensure that the women of the DTES know they are not forgotten and that they are seen while we also strengthen our Northshore community of yogis.
Spread the Love - Candlelit YHot
December 3, 5:45pm - 7:00pm | Neo Whistler | Laura Ward
Come together for the shared intention of sending love out to those in need. During this 75-minute YHot practice, we will breathe, move and sweat by candlelight and dedicate our collective energy towards making the world a better place to be for all.
In the Spirit of Giving
December 3, 6:00pm - 7:15pm | Downtown Flow | Jayme Burke
Join us for an evening of warmth while we move together and slow down for just a moment to fully embrace what is important. Giving time to ourselves, nourishment to our bodies and love to our neighbours, friends and those on the mats and in the communities around us. Jayme will move you through a beautiful practice and serenade you with a carefully crafted playlist.
Expanding your Circle
December 3, 6:00pm - 7:00pm | Highgate | Erica Thomas
"The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of our family too small" - Mother Theresa
This YHot class will draw awareness to expand your heart and the boundaries of your community circle to include everyone.
Yoga After Dark – YHot in Candlelight
December 3, 6:30pm - 7:30pm | Kitsilano | Lisa Sanson
This yoga class will be in the evening, lit only by candlelight. Students can expect a traditional YHot class, heated to forty degrees, with the expanded experience of bringing the lights down and focusing on their own practice. This dim lighting will allow yogis to dive deeper with less visual distractions, harnessing the power from their other senses. Participating in this class provides the women of the DTES with a community that empowers and protects them.
Candlelight Yin: Restore + Reset
December 3, 7:45pm - 9:15pm | Richmond Oval | Larissa Balza
Tires in the snow, the smell of cinnamon and clove, Sarah McLachlan's Wintersong - these are little moments that inspire the holiday season. Come join us for an evening of self care with a luxurious 90 min candlelit Yin class. This supported practice will help you restore and reset through utilizing breath and self massage techniques that you can take with you off your mat as you navigate the busy holiday season ahead. Local favourite, Butter Organics, will provide each guest with an all natural lotion gift.
