Yoga Classes in Nanaimo

Have you tried Yoga but didn’t like it?  Don't give up!

Let me help you choose the style that’s right for you:

Hatha, Kundalini, Power, Asthanga, Flow, Restorative, Yin, Interval ...

“Yoga” means the union of body, mind, and spirit. The best way to achieve this union and be in the present moment is to connect with your breath. It helps you self-center and experiences a deep personal inward journey; it cultivates awareness of the breath and the body, equanimity of the mind, by observing your thoughts without judgment and fostering love and compassion.

Yoga Intervals

What is Yoga Interval?

It's new, its a fusion of Yoga with High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Because its so new, I think it can be really different from one teacher to an other. I see it as where Bootcamp meets Vinyasa Flow. It's athletic and fat busting. HIIT is a superior method for fat loss than steady state exercise training. It can improve cardiovascular capacity better in far less time. This style will also build strength, core stability, increase flexibility, balance, relaxation, while cultivating the quality of Yoga like awareness and equanimity.

What can you expect from a class?

When I teach a class, I usually start with a Vinyasa Flow and some sun salutations to warm up the body. Then I will review different poses/asanas to be sure we have proper alignment, then we will perform theses poses using HIIT training. We will end the class with some low impact and relaxing stretches. Of course we will do Shavasana at the end.

Yoga Interval suits my needs. I love Yoga and strength training, so it brings the best of both worlds together.

Example of this style

The Rainbow Kids Yoga Style
It's a great way for kids to increase awareness of themselves, others, and the world, while having fun, because I believe that kids learn best when they’re having fun! Yoga is a wonderful way for children to stay (or become) confident, strong, balanced, and healthy. Yoga engages a child's natural, boundless energy, and conveys valuable lessons in positive thinking, body and mind awareness. Each class is alive with magical journeys where we meet animals, fly an airplane or drive a car, grow into a tree, or imitate the ocean waves, all in the form of dynamic poses. We use music and song, silly props, games, stories, relaxation, visualization and meditation.
