Yoga

We love introducing people to the power of yoga. What we learn on our yoga mat translates into everyday life. By taking the time to focus on your body, you’ll be prepared to handle whatever life throws your way.

Yoga increases flexibility and strength and helps reduce stress. It will regulate energy flow to attain a calm, relaxed mind. No previous yoga experience is necessary, and being flexible is not prerequisite.

Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or just beginning your yoga journey, you will appreciate our Courtenay yoga studio which is centrally located, clean, bright and spacious.

Our talented and diverse team of yoga instructors bring their own personality and flavour to Studio IPF.  They are highly trained, experienced and certified to teach yoga classes that are well planned, safe and enjoyable!

YOGA CLASSES at Studio IPF:

HATHA FLOW YOGA

Focusing on physical postures, deep breathing, mindfulness and listening to your body, we’ll move through some of the more basic Hatha yoga asanas (postures) while weaving in breathing practice and yoga philosophy. Emphasis is on core strength, flexibility, balance, concentration and breath control. 

Wednesdays 6:15-7:15pm & Sundays 9:15-10:15am

YIN YOGA

Yin Yoga is a quiet practice that uses long held floor postures to stimulate the connective tissue that forms our joints. Each class targets the lower back and spine, hips and upper legs. This practice helps to restore the natural range of motion in the joints and offers the potential for deep release. The focus is less on striving, and more about acceptance as we slow down and connect body and mind. All levels are welcome.

Mondays 7:15-8:15pm and Fridays 8:00-9:00am
