The first class we tried at Open Door Yoga a few weeks ago was with Brenna and it was on a Saturday night. We were at their 16th and Arbutus location, located in the same complex as Meinhardt. I’ve tried quite a few yoga studios in and around Vancouver over the past year – some are awesome, others..well..not so great. But I really love Open Door Yoga!
This particular Saturday night class was one of my favorites for a number of reasons. It seemed like Brenna took into consideration all of our senses: It smelled of wonderful, relaxing essential oils; the temperature of the studio was nice and warm; class was not full, so there was ample room to stretch around your mat; tea-light candles were lit and placed throughout the room and overhead lights were dimly lit. Also, Brenna has a very calming voice and a patient and peaceful vibe. You can tell that yoga is a true passion for her. The sum of all these parts made for an immensely relaxing yoga session.
If you’ve never tried Open Door Yoga, then now is your chance. They are offering a $99 unlimited yoga for 9 weeks to new members: http://opendooryoga.bc.ca/. Eleven dollars per week for unlimited yoga! Such a great deal! Bonus: you can use your pass at any of their 3 locations: Main Street, Commercial Drive or Arbutus.
