Nearly a decade ago Yogadown Studios opened it's doors in downtown Okotoks by a beautiful spirited woman name Hali. Hali had a vision of creating a space for community, healing and connection. A place where people would be accepted and welcomed just as they are, and no flexibility required.
Jerusha stepped in as owner 4 years ago, June 1 and was handed the torch to carry on the vision for empowering people though the teaching of yoga. With hard dedicated work Yogadown studios has continued to flourish and serve a wide range of individuals with top-notch teachers and staff in a stunning yet relaxing atmosphere that you will not want to leave, making Yogadown your home away from home.
We love our students. We love Okotoks. We LOVE what we do! Thanks to everyone who have ever been involved in Yogadown, you are part of the movement, change and growth of human consciousness. <3 ONE LOVE!

What a huge word! Of course, I do not mean the size of the word but rather the depth in it's value and meaning. Everyone wants to feel appreciated, but few actually get to feel this way, when they need it the most.
So let me share this with you...
YOU ARE APPRECIATED!
At some point you have been part of Yogadown, whether you're here at the studio often or maybe you used to come along time ago, or maybe you and I have never met, either way, I appreciate you. Your energy contributes to the community and for this I am grateful!
The connection, no matter how big or small is valued and if we have never met, I hope we get to soon!
Everyone here at Yogadown appreciates you too! We all have our own way of expressing it and each of us does our best to convey that message of love and appreciation so we want you to know that...
You are appreciated!

Get into the groove of this upbeat class where you're Flowin' to the Beats! Flow yoga is a practice that has a swift pace that will raise your heart beat, your smile and your spirit.
Expect a wide variety of standing, balancing, core, back bending and hip opening postures that are linked through intelligent sequencing that will leave you feeling light.
# 1 Stress Relief
The science of yoga is that when a practitioner is focused on the breath and movement, there is little to be stressed out about. This practice quiets the mind and soothes the body, that in turn activates the parasympathetic nervous systems that helps you relax. Plus you increase your brain power by reducing your stress load.
Classes to help you reduce stress:
# 2 Weight loss
Piggy-backing on above, when the parasympathetic nervous system is nourished, cortisol (your body's stress hormone) levels can be decreased. When cortisol is elevated for long periods of time, it can cause weight gain, and in more extreme cases, adrenal fatigue... which you don't want by the way!
Classes to increase heart rate and burn calories:
Flow & Restore
# 3 Increase Mobility & Decrease Pain
Tension and pain in your body is not fun! Tension can make a wonderful day into painful and uncomfortable day with a sore neck, headaches and unhappy hips! Because yoga is focused on moving your whole body in a dynamic way which allows for ease, flexibility and strength to ripple through your tissues, no wonder yoga is one of the top physical activities in the world!
Classes to Increase Mobility & Decrease Pain:
Flow & Restore
# 4 Connection, Community and Compassion
When it comes to human desire connection is usually what it boils down to. From having someone who knows who are, someone you can talk to, people you can look forward to seeing. All of these have to do with connection. Here at Yogadown connection and community are what we strive for. We want you to feel at home here, comfortable here, and nourished here. Being part of our yoga community will open you up to greater qualities of love, kindness & compassion.
Classes to feel Connection and create Community
ALL OF THEM! Come Early and chat with fellow practitioners and teachers!
# 5 Improve Immunity
When you engage and stretch muscles coming in and out of yoga postures, you increase circulation and the drainage of lymph (a viscous fluid rich in immune cells). This helps your body fight infection, destroy cancerous cells, and dispose of the toxic waste on a cellular level. Plus, all of the above points also support your body's health which converts to improving immunity. It's simple.... Happier people are healthier!
Classes to Improve Immunity
ALL OF THEM!
See you soon!
Are you ready? 2016 is about to grace us with it's presence. For many people the anticipation of the new year often bubbles up much excitement and for others may cause anxiety. What I have discovered is that the ritual of closing a chapter is fulfilling and leave me feeling peaceful.
In light of all of us moving into a transition period, I would like to share with you a few things I do at end of each year. If some or all of these ideas resonate with you, I would encourage your to reflect and complete this chapter in your life.
First gather these items:
Find a quiet place where you can be alone and uninterrupted. Pause for a moment then as you light your candle see the candle's flame as representing 2015. Get comfortable on your cushion and wrap a blanket around you. Place your pen and paper on your lap.
Simply write these questions on your paper:
Gaze softly at the candle, and begin to connect to your breath by breathing more deeply. Once you feel more relaxed allow you eyes to close. Continue to focus on our breath and observe your emotions or any images that arise in your mind.
When you are ready open your eyes and begin to write answer the questions and expressing any other thoughts or memories you wish to include.
Write, pause, breathe and repeat as much as you desire until you feel complete. Sign your name. Smile softly. Meditate longer if you wish then blow out the candle's flame and let go of 2015 and get ready to step forward into 2016.
Many blessings and well wishes to YOU!
We're inspired by what you do every day. Every time you step on your mat, you're making the world a happier, healthier place, by starting with yourself and we're honoured to serve and help you grow and succeed.
This past two years, we've invested more in our business and our community than we have in the history of Yogadown. Delivering a new and updated facility with more amenities, increased space, classes, staff and teachers. Our commitment is to continue to improve our services to create a more delightful experience for you.
As a result, we are restructuring our pricing to better align with our services, and ongoing investment to our community. Beginning January 1, 2016, most Yogadown passes and memberships will be increased 5-10%.
Please take note that we have not increased any of our prices in over 5 years.
Below are a few of our investments in the past two years:
What makes YOGADOWN special?
Thank you for choosing YOGADOWN as your second home and hub to connect with yourself and your community. We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
