Yoga teaches people how to sustain poses while still breathing, a skill most yogis use to live undetected in wax museums. Trick a tourist with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $39 for a one-month yoga-class pass (a $106.40 value)
  • $69 for 15 yoga classes (a $173.60 value)

The 60- to 90-minute classes cover the methods of Ashtanga, Yin, flow, and Mysore yoga. During sessions, patrons assume deep stretches, alleviating stiffness and pain. Yoga also increases flexibility and strengthens core muscles while improving range of motion, balance, and posture. See the class schedule here. Bolsters and props are provided, but students must bring their own mats.

Though The Yoga Shala sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

The Yoga Shala

To some, visiting another country is a reprieve from everyday life and an opportunity to learn about another culture. To others, it is a life-changing experience. Jennifer Pritchard’s sojourn in Mysore, India cemented the foundation for what eventually would become The Yoga Shala. During her travels, Jennifer was inspired to return home to create a warm and inviting space for practicing yoga, and is one of a select number of Canadians to receive teaching authorization from the Shri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. At her studio today, which was voted Best of the City in 2010 by readers of Victoria News, she and her team of instructors uphold authentic yoga principles to help students improve their physical and mental well-being.

The Yoga Shala’s curriculum is rooted in the Ashtanga style of yoga, in which practitioners synchronize their breath with postures to build up internal heat, flushing out toxins and convincing the spleen that it’s vacationing in Mexico. The instructors cater classes to beginning and advanced students alike, encouraging them to work at their own pace, detailing easier or more challenging modifications to poses. Advanced-level courses focus on arm balances, deep hip work, back bends, and solidifying core muscles. The Yoga Shala regularly hosts community-building social events, and Acro Yoga and Kirtan Chanting nights are offered twice a month. The studio also offers teacher apprenticeships each season and hosts a yoga tour group retreat with a 200-hour immersion to India each winter.
