Yoga is unique in that it is the only medieval physical fitness art that does not involve firing crossbows at a Grendel. Bend and stretch sans bloodshed with today's deal: for $39, you get one month of unlimited yoga at Shanti Yoga (up to a $126 value), located in Tsawwassen.
Both veteran and novice yogis can stretch their minds and bodies within the welcoming walls of Shanti's serene studio. A wide variety of classes set students atop a levitating moped rumbling down the road to wellness, from the gentle Hatha yoga to the more advanced, Vinyasa-style power yoga. The diverse team of friendly, experienced yoga instructors lead eager pupils through a challenging power stretch session that mixes both flow and seated stretching moves to elongate, strengthen, and sweet-talk muscles. Flexing fanatics can incinerate stress with a Shanti Sweat class that introduces the motions of power flow yoga to a warmed room.
Shanti Yoga implements many green practices, including the use of sustainable products such as bamboo flooring and eco-friendly cleaners.

The Delta Optimist featured Shanti Yoga and its studio director, Chantal O'Sullivan, shortly after the studio's opening:
- Studio director Chantal has been practicing yoga for close to a decade. She completed her teacher training with Semperviva in Vancouver and believes every day is better once you've taken time to unroll your mat. She brings her enthusiasm and love of yoga to every class she teaches and with Shanti Yoga, she says, she is thrilled to have assembled such a wonderful group of seven knowledgeable teachers, each with their own unique teaching style and personality. – Delta Optimist
Just as jogging isn’t only for marathon runners and skydiving isn’t only for superheroes with broken jetpacks, yoga is not just for bendy people, according to Shanti Yoga. First-timers along with daily yogis attend the studio's classes, which include options for all levels, such as gentle Hatha and power Vinyasa. Yoga workshops help students deepen their practice and learn new techniques, and retreats blast practitioners out of their comfort zones for life-changing experiences in tropical locations such as Bali. The studio also sells yoga-inspired Satya Jewelry, glass water bottles by Life Factory, and yoga props and accessories.
