The Yoga Spirit Philosophy
Yoga Spirit offers classes for all levels in an intimate, inviting space, ensuring that each student receives attention and guidance in order to get the most out of their practice.
Practice with Yoga Spirit relieves tension — opening key centres of the body where the stresses of life are held. The methods taught by Yoga Spirit place emphasis on proper foundation and alignment in poses — the key to getting the most out of your practice. Variations in poses, or asanas, are worked on in classes, allowing each student to challenge themselves at their own pace.
Proper breathing techniques are also emphasized, allowing students to flow into poses and develop a natural rhythm to their practice. This element has many new to yoga achieving levels of flexibility and strength they never thought possible!
Robyn Land started Yoga Spirit in 2006 hoping to share her love of yoga with the community. The company has grown from a group of five students that met once a week in the beginning to moving into a bright and beautiful studio space which opened in Burnaby in September, 2008. Robyn was joined by Lou Lynn, as a partner in the studio, in July 2010. Robyn and Lou are both excited to see Yoga Spirit continue to grow and thank all of the Yoga Spirit students for their encouragement and support along this journey.
To provide a welcoming and safe environment to share, learn and experience the benefits of yoga with the community. To encourage the union of mind, body and spirit so that students may reach towards their fullest potential.
To empower each practitioner to experience the joyful benefits of a healthy mind and body to enliven and enrich their spirit.
