I've had such an amazing experience with both the yoga classes as well as the mindful meditation. The environment is very inviting, calming and tranquil and the staff and instructors are incredibly helpful and friendly and really take the time to help each individual throughout the class.

A shout out to Bethany Russell who taught the latest meditation series - it was amazing! By far, one of the best, if not THE BEST, yoga experiences I've personally had over the last 18 years of practicing.

Bethany has an amazing ability to meet you wherever you are at. I am always struck by how well she is able to both challenge and comfort me in my yoga practice. Her passion, knowledge, and kindness shine through her teaching.

She guides you to find your alignment in poses, breath and meditation. After every class with Bethany I am refreshed and walk out feeling better than I did walking in!

Zen is how I feel after a class with Bethany. She is great at setting goals with you and making sure you have proper alignment. Her combo of meditation, massage, and yoga make her classes unique. Candle lit restorative yin yoga is my favourite thing to do to unwind after a stressful week.

Also her all natural skin products helped me with my skin issues I have been dealing with for years that medicated creams and medications couldn't heal 🙂

If I could describe Bethany's yoga classes in one word, it would be ...Bliss!
I have had the privilege of attending Bethany's classes for over a year and I have learned so much, not only in my own yoga practice, but also how our body, mind and spirit are so interconnected. Bethany really takes the time to ensure proper alignment within poses and suggests a variety of modifications if needed. She enjoys getting to know her students and is always mindful of their comfort levels. Through her encouraging, peaceful and inspiring classes, I always leave feeling more relaxed, grounded and blissful!
I'm looking forward to another year of learning with Bethany, and improving my overall health and well-being with her wonderful guidance!
