I am never alone wherever I am. The air itself supplies me with a century of love. When I breathe in, I am breathing in the laughter, tears, victories, passions, thoughts, memories, existence, joys, moments, and the hues of the sunlight on many tones of skin; I am breathing in the same air that was exhaled by many before me. The air that bore them life. And so how can I ever say that I am alone?

All levels welcome.


Yoga should not be daunting or inaccessible. Yoga is for every age, body type, belief system, every mobility issue, lifestyle and purpose.... But sometimes it can feel exclusionary - unattainable to those with normal bodies and lives and everything that comes with it. 

  • If you are breathing - you can do Yoga. The poses are simply one piece of an 8 limb practice that can guide you to a balanced existence.

  • If you are willing to open to the possibility that you can let go of limiting beliefs and allow that small changes happening in the present moment are all that is needed - you can do Yoga.

  • If you know deep inside that working every day and completing all your to do lists is a very small part of what life is about - you can do yoga. (in fact you are already doing Yoga)

  • Whatever the reason.....guess what? - you can practice yoga.

Whether you are in Vancouver or farther afield, younger or older, male or female, need to sit in a chair or lie on the floor, have been practicing for years or have no idea what "practice" is, come visit Ocean Breath and STOP rushing past your life. Instead, take a step into living more fully in each moment of your life. Find less stress, fewer aches, a stronger body and reconnect with what really matters to you.
