Upcoming Events

Tuesday, January 8

Nada Community Yoga - 8:30 - 9:30 pm
Classes are completely free but donations are encouraged if you’re able - 100% of all proceeds are split between the instructor and our current 1% for the Planet partner. It is our hope to make fitness classes, and yoga especially, more accessible in this city and in a neighbourhood lacking these facilities. Please spread the word and bring your pals! #BYOC - Bring your own cup & mat, if you'd like! Thanks to our good friends at lululemon and Stretch Vancouver we now have lots of mats available for in-store use, any time you'd like to borrow one! More

Hacking your New Year's Resolutions - 12:30 - 4:00 pm
New Year’s resolutions are usually poorly designed. Most are either a distant goal (running a marathon) or a loose commitment (eat better). These kinds of resolutions take a lot of mental energy to maintain on a day to day basis. No wonder so many people abandon them! The solution? Start with a clean slate by bringing peace of mind and completion to the past year, and develop some core practices for the new year that will support your most important goals. This is the perfect way to create your 2019. Get ready for a wonderful experience of reflection and creativity. Bring your favourite mug, your favourite pens and your favourite friends with you! More
