A New Path…


It is with very mixed emotions that I write this post.  The owner of Arise Yoga contacted me this week to inform me that as of May 31, 2016, regular weekly yoga classes at Arise Yoga will cease.


It was not an easy decision for him to make, he is as passionate about yoga and well-being as all of the instructors (past and present) at Arise Yoga.  The reality is that operating a yoga studio is both extremely rewarding and unbelievably challenging.  We love sharing the joys and benefits of yoga with each and every member of our yoga community, however, the business side of things needs to be taken into consideration as well.


The Arise Wellness group has been expanding due to increase in demand for services such as chiropractic and massage.  To accommodate this, two new practitioner rooms were constructed at the back of the Arise Studio in February.  The hope was that appointments would work symbiotically with yoga classes, but the reality proves to be a little more challenging.  This is the foundation for the decision by the studio owner to cease offering regular weekly classes at Arise.


There will still be an opportunity for short series and/or workshops to be held in the studio space and I hope that you will continue to check our website and follow us on Facebook to stay current with our offerings.  These will operate outside of the Arise Yoga pass realm and more like existing workshops where participants will register directly with the person or group offering the event.  We invite you to continue joining us for our current schedule of classes during the month of May to make full use of your class pass before the 31st, or to stop by for a drop-in class.  All classes will be posted on our website: www.ariseyogavernon.ca


It has been a privilege and a joy to have stepped into the role of Studio Director for the past year.  What an outstanding group of yoga teachers and health practitioners!  The teamwork and support has been an amazing experience.


I wish you all the best on your continued path of health and well-being.

Welcome to Arise Yoga


Welcome to Arise Yoga

The reasons to welcome yoga into our lives are endless. A regular practice can provide increased energy
and vitality, more flexibility of the body and mind and the chance to shed what no longer serves us,
physically and mentally. Whether we’re compelled to try yoga to heal our bodies or our spirits, yoga can
be one of the richest experiences we ever receive. With yoga, we achieve greater awareness of every
aspect of our lives. We become alive to the messages our bodies are sharing with us which can inspire
us to make more loving choices for ourselves off and on the mat. Instead of living like a victim to the
endless thoughts that besiege our daily lives, we see that we can learn from noticing and understanding
the thought patterns we have that may hold us back. As yoga stretches and lengthens our bodies, it can
expand our perspectives and our capacity for compassion and understanding for self and for others.
Yoga is a gift to us and to everyone in our lives.


The teachers at Arise Yoga are passionate about sharing the many gifts of a regular yoga practice.


 We can’t wait to meet you.
