We are guided and inspired by our 5 values. Our Values serve to ground and support us both on and off of the mat.

Values tradition logo

TRADITION

Our yoga trainings are rooted in the traditions of classical yoga principles, spiritual philosophy, chanting of mantras (sacred syllables), quieting the breath, and stilling the mind through meditation with a modern world perspective.

Values community logo

COMMUNITY

We believe in to giving back to our community; as giving back not only strengthens us, but the community at large. We give back to our community with/through:

  • Free and by donations yoga class in summer (running from April to October at various local locations ) and donate all proceeds to local food banks.
  • The Karma Yoga Community Project - provides free yoga classes for not-for-profit and charity organizations: Cool Aid Society, Parkinson Society of BC, etc.
  • Scholarship: We offer scholarship for all our programs; to give everyone - regardless of income level -  become a yoga teacher.

INCLUSIVE

We offer free and by donation yoga classes as we believe in spreading yoga to everyone in our community. We run our community programs  and offer scholarships. We believe yoga should be experienced and taught by individuals and teachers from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences and we demonstrate diversity in the teachers we employ.

Practicing yoga is just the beginning to living a healthier and ethical lifestyle; the practice also helps one make healthier choices in all aspects of life.

Values environment logo

ENVIRONMENT

We believe that yoga and respect for the environment go hand and hand! We are a zero waste brand! We use energy conserving appliances, turn off lights when we don’t need them, consume organic tea and food for students and we use environmentally friendly products.

Ten percent of all our profits go to our environmental partners: Greenpeace and the David Suzuki Foundation.
