When my first yoga session with Rhonda ended, I knew that I had found “my” yoga studio. The comfortable space, the endless supply of props and Rhonda’s warm, welcoming and lighthearted personality were what initially impressed me. Now, after many consecutive sessions, I have developed a deep appreciation for Rhonda’s ability to remember the ‘ailments’ of every class member. Her years of experience and knowledge of anatomy allows her to modify the poses, so that all of us can safely participate. The other bonus of attending one of her classes, …you do not leave without laughing at least once!

I really enjoy Rhonda’s classes. She is continually studying many different disciplines of yoga and that allows her to be very creative in her teaching style.
Each class will focus on a different theme that she guides you through with her positive, lighthearted and helpful attitude. Her classes always spur me on to get the most benefit possible.

Refunds: signed up for a class and can’t attend after all: (a FULL refund is possible if you cancel BEFORE the class starts) If you cancel after classes have started, a partial refund is available provided your spot can be filled with someone on the waitlist or if you find someone to fill your spot. 3 weeks into the class, no refunds available, sorry.

-Please note it is quite common to miss at least 2 classes due to illness or vacation during a 11-13 week session.  IF you need to split your payment into 2 to make it work for you, please DO!  [just leave me a post-dated cheque for the 2nd please]

NEW (spring 2018) Policies for classes: Can't attend a whole session? There are a couple of options, there is 1 punchcard per class per session, ($1.50 more/class), pro-rated if you join us for the full session if it's already started, full drop-in ($2.50 more/class) if space allows. [pls email me]

(**exceptions to this is when neighbours on the street attend classes, who I feel I inconvience all the time with the studio in the neighbourhood).  I've had to become stricter in this policy due to multiple requests.  I appreciate your understanding in trying to run my small business.  Classes are small and are affordable for the Victoria area compared with other studios in town.  Sometimes when classes are full, and you wish to not lose your "spot" in your favorite class, you can save it by registering for the whole class.  Again, appreicate your understanding. 

-Please note ALL classes are dynamic in nature and are meant for HEALTHY bodies (no chronic back or disc related issues unless you are coming for individual post-rehab sessions)

Sorry, no make-up classes available.

Please arrive 5-10 min. for classes, especially for yoga classes. This allows time to settle in, connect with others etc.

-Most props are provided, with some exceptions. For yoga, most people prefer their own mat.

-Please bring water to classes, and ALWAYS work within your own abilities.

-Lastly, please disclose any past or current injuries as it’s very helpful in making the class a safe and good experience.
