Holidays classes over the Long Weekends are NO CLASSES on Saturday at 8.15 am or Sunday at 7 pm and one 7 pm class on Monday. ALL other classes run as scheduled. NOTE there is no class Sunday night in August at 7 pm.
Green Room Yoga has some of the best teachers in the city teaching out of our intimate studio in the Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood, and it's a great part of East Vancouver.
Join us for the current session at any time. Across the city we are known for the care and skill of our teachers, and their ability to meet you where YOU are, and support you on your journey of healing and growth.
Green Room Yoga has been a part of your neighbourhood since 2004
We have a dedicated group of teachers that are outstanding, not just in their commitment to your growth but in their commitment to their own growth and practice.
At Green Room Yoga we invite you to explore and engage in your practice on a whole new level. With commitment, dedication and enthusiasm.
We keep our classes at less than 12 students to allow a maximum amount of attention to each individual. It lets you move more deeply into your practice, knowing you will be safely supported on your journey. This also means that if you have been dealing with ongoing physical issues, such as chronic knee, back or neck problems, because of the small class size your teacher will be able to give you the time and attention needed to support you. It also gives you the chance to build a relationship with your teacher, and to get to know your fellow students and build a rapport with them. We believe that this is the path to growth, to change, to a real development of a personal practice.
What our students say:
"I stumbled across Green Room Yoga in 2009 and started yoga with Meghan, who convinced me of yoga - hook, line and sinker - with her gentle, introspective, supportive guidance. Throughout the years, I added the practices of Alix, Delia and Jennifer into my schedule, all of whom are incredibly insightful about the dynamics of our bodies and minds.
However, the largest impact of Green Room Yoga came in the spring of 2012, when I sustained an injury that has left me stranded medically and with crippling persistent pain. Alix took me under her wing like the damaged little bird I was and nurtured my broken spirit back to health - one breath at a time. Thank you, Alix!"
"The things about Green Room Yoga that stand out are a lack of attitude, a welcoming non judgemental environment and extraordinary teachers.
The smallest movement in correct alignment can be exhilarating and exhausting, even if only repeated a few times."
What our teachers have to say about their experience of teaching at GRY.
From Jennifer Clarke:
"I love teaching at Green Room Yoga for a few different reasons. The classes are small usually 8-10 students so I have gotten to know the students very well and can support them in their individual needs as I see them regularly and can observe their growth. Green Room has a wide variety of props that I have not seen at any other studio. Using and experimenting with these various props have allowed me to develop a body of material around releasing neck and shoulder tension. I have been able to create a very popular Neck and Shoulder class that has helped many students with a variety of challenges. Green Room has a committed, non-competitive atmosphere, and I have grown as a teacher since I've been teaching here."
From Delia Brett:
"It is a great joy and privilege to teach at Green Room Yoga. The pre-registration structure allows the students to ease themselves into their practice, developing at a safe and progressive rate. The informal atmosphere means students and teachers are comfortable to be themselves and can bring their individual style and personality to the practice. This makes my job of teaching at Green Room easeful and uplifting.
I have found over the 6 years I have been teaching at Green Room Yoga that the sense of community amongst the students has grown deeper and more genuine. The strength of our practice together means that we are better able to embrace newcomers to the studio and to yoga.
Watching students grow stronger and healthier, braver and more loving through yoga has inspired radical changes in my personal practice, has helped me become more confident and clear in my teaching, and has essentially benefited every aspect of my life."
