Workshop - Flow & Yin Yoga - In Person or Virtual | October - December

In the warmly lit, intimate spaces in The Pavilion, we'll build heat and strength as we open with our vinyasa flow practice, soften into longer yin postures, and finish in restorative poses to create space in your body, mind and spirit. Whether this is your first time stepping on a mat or the 100th time, this yoga series is open to everyone and everybody.

This series is offered both in-person and virtually. If you are only interested in attending sessions virtually, please call us at 204-927-6070 or email education@assiniboinepark.ca after registering for this class online to help us monitor in-person group size.

Virtual Yoga Information

Zoom is an amazing free app. You can practice with your cell phone, on your computer or even hook up to your tv for better viewing if you like. It gives the option to interact before & after class if you choose to. A link and instructions will be sent to your email a few hours before the first class.

Becky will be available 15 minutes before each class to chat, answer questions and support our amazing yoga community at Assiniboine Park. At the start of class, all microphones will be muted and class will begin. If you miss a class or would like to do the class again, a recorded class link is sent out the same evening, so you can practice at a time that suits you best.

To help monitor in-person class sizes with changing health guidelines, registered virtual yoga participants cannot attend a in-person class.

Don't have any yoga props? Get creative with couch cushions, a dog leash or belt for a strap, thick books for a block.
