A new Mount Pleasant yoga studio opened a few months ago with a practical philosophy to yoga & wellbeing:
Just Yoga aims to provide a safe, friendly, down-to earth approach to all things holistic and soulfully wonderful. We believe in re-connecting Vancouver, on and off the mat, we believe in having a low environmental footprint, and we believe in making yoga truly accessible to everyone, which means keeping class prices as low as possible and offering discounts to those who need it. We honour our teachers and those who have taught before us, our members and everyone in our community, and uphold respect for all living beings as equals.
The studio itself was designed, renovated, and is run by Jeni Bond, with the help of a wonderful band of teachers with healing backgrounds. Jeni believes in the power of yoga to heal, through connection with yourself, with others and the Earth. She set up Just Yoga to share the tools, techniques and lessons that have helped her along the way.
“If it wasn’t for yoga I’m not sure where I’d be, I need that balance. When you feel lost, disconnected, lonely, sick or depressed, reach out for something that will elevate your spirit – yoga is one way to do that.”
Healing is the main goal, on all levels. Teaching people to listen to themselves, to delve deeply into their lives and find courage to heal and re-connect with others. Teachers learn people’s names and encourage them to talk to each other, deepening their connections. This is yoga with heart & soul.
