Props are one of the best tools in a yoga practice. They are a way to help adapt asana to fit every body. We love tools, and the chair is one of our favourites! . If you are new to yoga or perhaps you’re working with mobility limitations, we have you covered. This practice is a great place to start and @lindsay_warne is bringing this practice to us next week. . Link in bio for details!

Grounding down. This is exactly what we have been doing within Pure Living Yoga over the last month. Setting aside space to get clear on our intentions for our year together is crucial in our success as a community and as individuals. We make sure to stop, pause, and ask the right questions. What is our vision? How can we help? What will create growth? And the list goes on. We find that the only way to really expand is to create the space for it. . On top of a regular yoga and meditation practice, we take time off to do plan. We journal our dreams. We talk and communicate with our people. There are so many practices that help us get clear and really create what it is we need as a whole. . What are some practices you have to get ground down and manifest your life? We would love to have you share your practices that keep you moving forward in life. Let us know in the comments!
The fall schedule is locked and loaded! We are so excited for the upcoming season. We have curated the most intentional schedule to date. It includes your all time faves, plus many new and special offerings. It is going to be another transformational year for us all. Continue to keep your eyes peeled for events, workshops, and micro workshops coming your way over the next week! . Check out our schedule highlight. What is your favourite things so far?

This is @shay_marie22 ! She is one of our recent teacher training graduates and a face you should get used to seeing! . Shayla has always been a lover of movement, health and wellness. Her first love of movement was found in gymnastics and later cheerleading. Shayla spent a number of years coaching gymnastics and cheerleading before focusing on her education. She finished her kinesiology degree at the University of Regina in 2019. . After Shayla decided to move on from cheerleading she found yoga. Shayla resonates deeply with the heat building aspect of the practice. She loves playing in the upside down. Getting that flipped perspective has so many benefits for the physical body. Aside from all the benefits of being physically active, one of Shayla’s favourite aspects of the practice is how calming this practice has been for her mental health. She often finds yoga to be a great way to burn off stress and clear her mind of all the clutter! Her love of the sweat and the fire fuels her passions and allows her the space she needs to practice the let go. . Catch her for the remainder of August on Saturday’s for $5 Yoga in the Park @ 9:30-10:30am! This class will also be completely free on August 17th! See you there, the registration link is in our bio!

Meet @_averot! She will be guiding us in July’s $5 Karma Class in the Park starting this Saturday @ 9:30am. Here is a little about this mighty bean! . Ashlyn has always been a spirit junkie with a deep connection to Mother Earth. As a very small child, she would frequently be caught dancing around outside, on top of her grandmother’s conversion van or exhaling strongly onto trees — to give them extra carbon dioxide, of course! . Thru the practice of yoga, Ash learned that everything we put into our minds influences the health of our entire body. Which, in turn, has helped Ash heal her fearful perceptions, deepen her spiritual practice + gain the confidence + tools to live her highest purpose. . Along this journey, Ash felt a strong calling to be a guide; to use her gifts to serve others in big + meaningful ways. To lead, to heal + to make an impact in the lives of those around her — awakening others to their higher purpose, as well! . Ash uses her intuitive gifts to transmute low vibrational energy; she gracefully creates a safe space for yogis of all levels, while providing encouragement to grow your own individual practice. Her classes are methodical — well balanced between challenging postures + relaxation. Come practice with Ashlyn if you’re looking to release + renew! . BONUS: Ashlyn is an Airy Aquarius + tender-hearted Selenophile🌚, always ready to talk all things astrology. . Join this blossoming teacher on the mat!

And another one! Tomorrow you are spending the day with @lindsay_warne here on IG! Here is a little bit about this flowing garden goddess: . Lindsay’s exploration into yoga started over 10 years ago. Initially it was the strength and flexibility she found in her body that really made her fall in love with the practice. As she explored yoga more she gained a host of tools to help deal with everyday life. This is what really got her hooked. Learning breathing and meditation practices to help with sleep and stress relief to learning to listen to her inner voice and honoring it. The ancient wisdom of yoga and ayurveda is constantly amazing her. The knowledge that we can heal ourselves through our breath, movement and natural foods should be something that is shared with everyone. She has pretty much decided that yoga can cure anything… anyone who talks with her can confirm this to be true. . She has a deep love for pranayama and this is what usually starts out her mornings. The clarity, focus and alertness that it brings can't be beat (even by coffee). When it comes to asana her favourite practice and go to is always an ashtanga based vinyasa flow followed up by a passive yin practice. . Weird fact about her is that she loves loud music with lots of bass. Like the kind that you find at a music festival when your standing in front a wall of subs and it literally takes your breath away….mmmm so good. She also love the freedom these festivals allow to be your truest weirdest self which includes any number of crazy costumes and connecting with others humans that aren’t afraid to let their walls down. . Learn more about this girl and her offerings all day Wednesday! . #yogaforeverybody #yogaeverydamnday #pranayama #breath #restorative #yogaeverywhere #yqr #yqryoga #yqryogi #thisisyoga #thisispureliving #eatsleepyogarepeat #saskyoga #yogacanada #sweatchillbe #sweatchillberetreat
It’s @shea_usick’s turn to take over the gram! Catch him all day Tuesday right here! —————————— Shea Usick is a body nerd with a love for exploring his body and his mind. Shea has a way of discovering weakness and rigidity in the body and mind and a way of discovering unique methods of working through them. His dedication and passion for movement has lead him to practice many disciplines and modalities ranging from martial arts, parkour, tricking, and breakdancing. When Shea found yoga he found the perfect balance of everything he loved to practice. With a firm belief that the body is more than a vehicle for the mind, Shea has dedicated his life to understanding the knowledge and connection of the body, mind, and spirit. Shea’s yoga classes are designed for the discovery of your body both in theory and in practical execution so get ready to learn! His favorite yoga posture is Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand) due to the intense presence and focus it requires. Everything in the body must work together in order to maintain balance and when one can learn to understand this balance, he believes they will have a deeper understanding of the balance required in life. One weird fact about Shea is that in the mornings he makes sure to get goofy by dancing in socks and undies to funk music. ————————— See what he is up to in studio at the upcoming retreat! ————————— #yogaforeverybody #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #yogaeverywhere #yqr #yqryoga #yqrevents #yoga #thisisyoga #thisispurelivingyoga #thisispureliving #sweatchillbe #sweatchillberetreat
Oh hey there @tina.laurier! We can’t wait for you to take over instagram tomorrow! —————————— Christina (Tina) began her journey into the world of yoga over 6 years ago. Initially doubting the movement practice, Tina had the common mindset that “oh no, I’m not flexible – I can’t do yoga” however today she couldn’t be happier that she took the leap of faith & challenged herself to keep coming back to the mat. . An ever increasing awareness & mind-body connection is what continues to inspire Tina to come back to her mat; always challenging herself to find new tools to adapt to everyday stressors. . In her classes, you can expect to see a same range of styles. She will challenge you and get your heart pumping in Vinyasa, but just as easily slow you down with a Yin practice to find stillness within the body, & hopefully find gaps of stillness within the mind. . Christina’s practice has become a Choice. A choice to show up for herself on the mat & face the darkness. A choice to breath through the discomforts of life instead of resisting them. A choice to truly feel, without judging the sensations, emotions or thoughts that present themselves. A choice to let go. —————————— Join Tina tomorrow on our IG stories. She is going to take you on a day with her and let you know what she is up to in studio and at the Sweat Chill Be Yoga Retreat. —————————— #yogaforeverybody #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #yogaeverywhere #yqr #yqryoga #yoga #thisisyoga #thisispurelivingyoga #sweatchillbe #sweatchillberetreat
