I’ve teamed up with two inspiring new teachers to create Community Yoga Vancouver, a yoga program designed to create greater accessibility to the practice we love. Our classes are unique, quirky, unusual and community oriented. Here is an excerpt from our website to give you a better idea of who we are:
Community yoga was created to offer something different from Vancouver’s mainstream yoga studios.
We strive to eliminate the barriers that usually work to keep people out of yoga classes.
We know our students and teachers can use yoga to build community.
We believe that everyone can benefit from practicing yoga.
Our classes are different because:
We operate out of a collective space with gender neutral facilities.
We use a sliding scale for our drop-in classes ($8-$12 or more… pay what you can afford).
We are mindful of physical accessibility concerns.
We do our best to offer modififications to meet the needs of all bodies.
We publish a zine to encourage conversation and pay our rent, which anyone can submit to.
We offer classes not found in other studios in Vancouver like queer yoga, moon yoga, and clown yoga.
We value anti-oppression and do our best to offer a safer studio space.
It’s important to us that we do our best to offer a space you feel like you can belong to.
