Evolving the traditional practice by incorporating Modern science, yoking (root of yoga) the new and the old. Thank you Shanti yoga for sharing your passion with robust passion, the integrity of your teachings has been immensely enlightening. Namaste.
My experience here was one of self discovery, self transformation and personal growth that left me with a burning passion in my heart. Any aspiring yogi, or yogini, would be lucky to join in any of Shanti Yoga's wonderful therapeutic practices. Safe and fun for students of all ages, and all skill levels. I was certified as an instructor through their 200 YTT course and I can confidently say that my life is forever changed. Shanti yoga helped me find well-being, tranquility, and spiritual purpose. Thank you Shanti Yoga!

I have been a member of the Shanti family since day one. Over the years people have come and gone, but the basic principles have remained the same. No gimmicks or trendy classes that deviate from solid, basic yoga instruction and a team of gifted caring instructors who have always combined the essentials of a physical and spiritual practise with a sense of playfulness and propriety that makes any of the studio’s safe and nurturing classes a gift to oneself.
Over the years I have been a tree, a mountain, a pigeon, a triangle, a warrior and a happy baby. I have had eagle arms, been a cow and had lion’s breath. I’m not a kid, I’m overweight and less active than I should be, but when it comes time for yoga class, those descriptions are meaningless and I am thoroughly in the moment, often hoping that the class will never end. I cherish my time at Shanti. Both fellow students and staff are really like another family. There is a palpable feeling of love and sincerity in that little studio at the top of the stairs which I wouldn’t trade for anything! And the hugs that greet and say farewell to us are sincere, loving and they epitomize the total environment of the studio. Oh yes, there are jelly belly’s and almonds as well. Congratulations on 10 years. Don’t change a thing!

“I have never found a place that compares to this!”

I looked at a few yoga places online before I got to Nelson. Something drew me to Shanti. Thankfully I went there! The studio is so incredibly simple and beautiful and peaceful. I did Joy's gentle yoga and wish I could still be there doing it. I will have to find something similar in Winnipeg and that will not be easy. Joy is fantastic. Gently walking around encouraging, assisting and watching our positions/posture. Can't wait for my next trip!

I have been a 'Yin Yoga' client with this studio for several months and the effects for my health have been superb, Joy and Avalon run a really great studio and are very supportive of anyone that wishes to use yoga to improve their health. Sara (my instructor) is very well knowledgeable and helpful in the sessions. I have taken yoga in a number of studio across Canada and this is the best run, most professional and there is a strong sense that everyone there care about their clients.
I happened upon Shanti while wandering Baker Street. A class with Joy was starting at that moment. Wonderful experience! So much so that I signed up for a private session with Joy for the following day. She allowed me to audio record the session. Incredible value!
