Kick Off 2023 with STRETCH Yoga, This January

The Goods from STRETCH Yoga

Vancouver, BC | We are an eclectic collective of people interested in flexibility… of mind and body. We love to practice a wide range of yoga styles, sometimes with live music and always with a keen interest to find more inner space, more inner peace. We think of yoga as a proto science from long ago, an intuition that contemplative practices are part of what makes us humans. We are strivers and movers, art lovers, bright space dwellers, and we would like to share our yoga with you.

Here is what Stretch Yoga has to offer for the month of January:

January 1 – February 9, 2023
$40 for 40 Days of Unlimited Yoga

Kick off 2023 by challenging yourself to drop a bad habit for 40 days, while committing to a GREAT habit (yoga). Consistency and patience produce results that last. The best way to help your body and immune system is by committing to good habits over time. We encourage you to start 2023 by upping your yoga to reduce stress and get your daily movement in! We can’t wait for you to experience what this practice will do for you. Sign up here.

*Complete 40 classes between Jan 1 & Feb 9 2023 and we’ll REFUND your $40 pass purchase, or donate it to charity.
