Since getting to Vancouver I had been looking around for the best deals at Yoga studios here and as you can imagine in one of the most sought after cities in the world, the prices were through the roof. Luckily, I found a good deal with YYoga for 30 days unlimited yoga classes for $40- $42 with tax, damn canada and their non inclusive taxes.
YYoga has 13 locations all over the country and a lot are scattered around vancouver. Y Yoga Yaletown was conveniently located down the street from my hostel and Y Yoga downtown flow was even more conveniently located down the street from my new appartment (once I'd moved).
I made it my mission to go to as many classes as possible to learn as much from the different teachers available. On an average day I would go to a power class before work and sometimes if I had a late start to work I would go to power and Hot yoga back to back. After 2 weeks going to Yaletown and 2 weeks at the downtown flow location I had clocked up 26 hours of yoga. Definitely got my money's worth.
Since then I have gotten a side job as a Yoga Teacher teaching Yin and Flow classes nearby my apartment in the westend. I feel like attending all of these classes has given me ideas and inspiration for my own practice and teaching method.
Y Yoga's facilities are too class with beautiful showers (althoigh Theyr see through), toiletries, mats, towels, big wood floored rooms and delicious tea and filtered water. The staff are super friendly at both locations I have been and would always remember me and greet me. Important in customer service ;)
Now my month is up and I'm off to find my next deal. Maybe a month of unlimited Hot Yoga :)
