Benefits of Yoga

Yoga is universal, and anyone can do it: no matter how young or old you feel, no matter how unfit you consider yourself. Whether you are a couch-potato or professional athlete, the benefits of yoga are for everyone. Your size and fitness level don’t matter because Yoga adapts to you.

The idea is to explore your personal limits, not to strive for pretzel-like perfection or drown in esoteric teachings. We have classes to suit all styles and needs, and if we don’t then we will set up a personal class just for you!

Spirit Bear Power Yoga opened in 2008 and has been serving and growing the community ever since. At our studio you will find exercise that’s easy to study, requires no gear, and soothes your soul.
