A sun salutation, unlike a bath of corn flakes or a shouting match with the neighborhood rooster, is a healthy way to start the day. Learn to greet the dawn with grace using today's Groupon: for $30, you get five yoga classes at Okanagan Yoga Centre (an $80 value).
At Okanagan Yoga Centre, experienced teachers guide the journeys of all skill levels in an eco-friendly studio. The studio offers both heated and nonheated classes with variations including the Discover style, a practice focused on proper form and breathing techniques. Alternatively, Calm classes relax the nervous system to stimulate healing and help the body let go of ingrained habits, such as chewing gum to the beat of a seven-minute waltz. The schedule slates morning through evening classes every day of the week, and newcomers are encouraged to check out the new student page for answers on what to bring.
An environmentally friendly operation, the centre's staff maintains studio warmth with radiant heat panels and uses biodegradable, plant-derived Benefect cleaning products. The decor imparts a whimsical air thanks to touches such as mason-jar lights and washrooms adorned in natural wood and ornately framed mirrors. Okanagan Yoga Centre encourages a sense of community with movie nights and a welcoming lounge area where patrons can sip locally blended tea, listen to records, and contemplate the expansion of the universe.
