Yoga & Meditation

Practice Yoga and Meditation

Staying loose and finding calm is how we like to roll on Kootenay Lake. Pick the yoga centre of your choice. Word is we have more yogis per capita than anywhere else in Canada. Roll out your mat, and deepen your meditation practice. Ohm yeah.

Yoga Studios

From a short morning stretch to multiple weeks of yogi training, you'll find all kinds of yoga options in and around Nelson. Shanti Yoga Studio offers classes in a beautifully restored heritage building on Baker Street, while Mountain Waters Spa across the road provides a wide range of courses, including pre-natal yoga, pilates, and candlelit yin yoga. 

Turn up the heat with a yoga class at Bambu Hot Yoga in Nelson or slow down with a gentle or restorative class at Vitality Yoga. Santé Holistic Health Centre also offers a variety of classes and health services. All studios are within a block of each other. 

Meditation Centres

Find your inner balance with a retreat for your mind and soul. The Kootenay Shambhala Meditation Centre offers public meditation and weeklong retreats in a peaceful setting. The acclaimed Yasodhara Ashram near Crawford Bay on the East Shore invites guests to deepen their yoga and meditation practice with workshops and retreats throughout the year. Their spectacular Temple of Light is a prime example of the region's love and fusion of nature and art.
