  • Trinity Yoga Center
    In Classic Yoga mythology, the Tandava is "the dance of life." It's a fitting namesake for Tandava Yoga. While yoga isn't mythical, it's as rooted in age-old traditions as many myths; while yoga isn't dance, it's as flowing and expressive as many dances?at least the way it's practiced in the studio's classes. The eclectic mix of classes ranges from gentle yoga and meditation sessions to a core-strengthening workout infused with cardio. Regardless of the specific class, though, the instructors hew to a holistic philosophy, one that encourages conscious breathing, mindfulness, and feeling present.

  • Inner Light Yoga Studio
    At Inner Light Yoga and Wellness, each class is a physical journey toward enhanced self-awareness. Sessions begin with breath work, helping to synch the lungs with the rest of the body as the instructor directs one’s focus inward. Mid sessions are devoted to the practice of Asanas, or poses, used with varying breathing techniques to help both stretch and strengthen the body, relieving stress and creating balance in both the body and mind. Sessions conclude with focused relaxation, allowing the cessation of thought that frees up the consciousness. The dynamic wellness center also offers sessions in guided meditation, Reiki, Pilates, and belly dancing.

  • Kelowna Yoga House
    Inspired by the teachings of living yogi master B.K.S. Iyengar, the well-trained teachers at Kelowna Yoga House guide students through a practice that champions prop-supported backbends and inversions to bolster stamina, strength, and range of movement. Beginner classes introduce bodies to the basic standing poses and inversions on the spacious studio's hardwood floors, and more experienced practitioners can delve into the intermediate and advancing classes' unsupported backbends and inversions. Gentle yoga makes use of belts, ropes, and pillows to help practitioners assume proper poses and craft a Rube Goldberg pillow fluffer after class, and a slow pace eases those working with injuries. With 25 classes a week, yogis can stretch with more frequency than a superhero's spandex biking shorts.

  • Karma Yoga & Fitness
    It isn't just the instructors at Karma Yoga + Fitness who help students connect with their bodies: the studio space is also vital. A high-efficiency air system generates up to 12 airflow changes every hour, and a UV filter system keeps the air free of toxins, odors, and bacteria. All-natural floors, gently cleaned with eco-friendly soaps, cradle bodies during classes. And yet the most important amenity is the infrared heat?it penetrates deep into muscles to warm students rather than the air around them, improving on the old technique of just eating hot water bottles. Karma Yoga + Fitness is the brainchild of founder Brenda Wowk. Brenda draws from her yoga studies in India?and experience as a reiki practitioner and personal trainer?to helm a range of heated and non-heated classes tailored to all ages and ability levels. Instructors help students stretch out muscle fibers, loosen joints, and condition their cardiovascular systems in classes spanning styles from hatha to warm yin to ashtanga, each heated to between 85?F and 103?F. The studio also holds advanced workshops, yoga teacher trainings, and a yoga boot camp.

  • Bikram Yoga Westbank
    Inside a steamy studio, the experienced yogis at Bikram Yoga Westbank spend 90 minutes leading students of all skill levels through a series of 26 poses developed by Bikram Choudhury. Bikram brought his system from India to the U.S. at the request of the American Medical Association. Since then, he founded the Yoga College of India and has taught both actors and athletes. During each class, poses massage internal organs, stimulate nervous systems, and release deficient enzymes and hormones—a process that brings balance to the body, increases flexibility, and enables the average person to sleep inside a sock drawer.
