For those wanting to learn and practice the traditional Ashtanga Yoga System, come to Yoga Shala located within the inner city of NW Calgary. This pure form of yoga follows “very specific postures done in sequential order linked together by breath and movement.” The Yoga Shala has developed a clientele by word-of-mouth from all over Canada and North America.
Yoga Shala Offerings
If you’re wondering how yoga works to your benefit, maybe its time to give it a try. Experience the traditional by attending a Mysore class, which features a series of postures from Mysore, India, where the ashtanga form was developed. Then there are the non-traditional classes called strength and soul, and vinyasa flow. The Yoga Shala also offers prenatal and post-natal classes. From mats, to music, to CDs, books and even jewelry, the Asha Boutique carries environmentally-friendly products to complement your yoga practice.
Community Oriented Yoga
Yoga Shala is community-oriented by drawing people in through a combination of warm interiors and a soothing calm atmosphere. A Saturday community class is also offered at a nominal price plus a food bank donation. From its cork flooring, Indian accents and comfortable temperature, the Yoga Shala is for everyone who wants to experience a change both in body, mind and spirit.
