Pure Living Yoga.

Have you heard of Pure Living Yoga?  I hope you have.. but just in case you haven't, let me tell you about them.

Pure Living Yoga is a yoga studio located in Emerald Park and owned by Britt Kish and Brenna Bote. 

There are many wonderful yoga studios in our community, but Pure Living Yoga stands out as one of the best.  Why? you ask. Let me share my first experience taking a class from Brenna Bote.

But first, just in case you didn't know, I am a traditional and authentic yoga student. This means that I believe in the philosophy of Yoga as a lifestyle and my studies include learning authentic yoga teachings. I abide by the Yamas & Niyamas (ethical guidelines of Yoga) and I see yoga as a form of self-discovery, NOT just a "fitness class".

I have been to many studios who misuse asana (the postures) as a "workout" instead of a means to connect with self, but when I walked into my very first class at Pure Living Yoga, I knew this was it. THIS was the studio I had been waiting to go to, to experience, to be guided into my self.

Brenna led an incredible class and meditation and I remember feeling blissful leaving the studio. When I got home, I was compelled to text Brenna, this is what I said:

Brenna, I just have to say THANK YOU for the wonderful yoga and meditation class today. It was so refreshing to be in a class that honors the ancient and sacred practice of yoga ... Thank you for all you do, and the wonderful space you have made available to inspiring Yogi's like myself"
 
After that first class, I knew this was my home away from home. A special place. A sacred space. A space of Pure Living.

Now, I want to share with you some very exciting things happening at Pure Living Yoga right now and in the near future!

First being a  "Yoga Class for Cash Challenge"! The challenge runs from May 21st - July 15th and the goal is to practice 5/7 days per week! Each time you complete a week, you will be entered to win an infinity membership with Pure Living Yoga (which is 3 months of unlimited yoga).  I will be there participating - who is joining me!!!

The second thing I wanted to mention is Pure Living Yoga's VERY first retreat!! It will be held July 27th to 29th in Lumsden!  The line up of classes at this retreat is INCREDIBLE - there are so many amazing teachers and educators to learn from and GUESS WHAT? I will be there hosting a personal development workshop that you don't want to miss!! (ok, you won't want to miss any of it, but it's pretty exciting that I am participating in it!)

Finally, stay tuned this upcoming Tuesday, May, 22nd as I will be taking over Pure Living Yoga's instagram account! A full day of me & my shenanigans!
