Tanisha and I have started to get back into yoga again, after a bit a of a hiatus. She was in Hawaii for December and I was in Phoenix with my husband, visiting family. I know, I know, it’s already February, but we’ve been busy! Plus, a great reason we started back into yoga (almost) daily is that we found an amazing deal from Open Door Yoga: $99 for 9 weeks of unlimited yoga at their 3 locations, to new members. Amazing deal right?!
Their 3 locations in Vancouver are on Main Street, Commercial Drive and the recently opened Arbutus/16th. Since I live fairly close, I’ve only practiced at the Arbutus location. It’s a really great studio – smaller classes, so lots of room to stretch, great instructors – Brenna (has a great energy-really calming, encourages us to close our eyes to focus within,. It has a really great vibe, no pretentiousness, just people there to practice yoga for themselves.
The studio itself is always nice and warm, which I love. I find most studios around Vancouver (unless it’s hot yoga of course) are always quite cool.
Mats are provided free of charge, as well as tea, water and cookies! The studio is carpeted, which is great for extra cushioning.
The only drawback is there is only one stall toilet and a small change room.
