In its constant attempt to stay fit, humanity has given in to such unfortunate workout trends as livestock lifting, Spazzercise, and mixed-martial charades. Embrace body and mind fitness that has withstood the test of time with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a punch card good for five classes at the Kelowna and Vernon locations of the Trinity Yoga Centre (a $61.60 value, including HST). This Kripalu-affiliated studio focuses on the small details of yoga movement, alignment, and core strength in a variety of classes. The gentle yoga class encourages antsy earthlings to slow down and flex into foundational postures, and Vinyasa yoga centres around the rhythm of the breath and rhyme of the air conditioner. The experienced instructors take a holistic approach to yoga, welcoming students of all experience levels.
There are not many online reviews for Trinity Yoga Centre, but it has testimonials available on its website:
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.
