Kelowna Yoga House Society

Kind words from our Students




"Love, love, love it here. It is a perfect fit for me- My spine & body are healing and I am so grateful.  I  really enjoy that every class is different-some moves are still new to me. The teachers are amazing !! Your time, knowledge, commitment, discipline- thank you so much. Because of the trial month I had a friend sign up and she is now a member :)"



"It is lovely to find a community in the western world that practices with diligence and respect and with a one-pointed focus. I appreciate the high level of instruction and dedication and the layers of awareness within the Yoga House. Plus, it's close to my house and I like walking.  :) It aligns with my intentions."



"The positive atmosphere, sense of community, and quality of teaching at Kelowna Yoga House are all things that are truly unique in the Kelowna yoga community and have been a solace to me in my most stressful times as a university student. At KYH, you are guaranteed to experience depth in yoga with thorough, precise, and intelligent teaching,encompassing the fundamentals of yoga philosophy.KYH is a yoga gem and I would highly recommend this studio to anyone who is interested in receiving the highest quality of yoga education and changing their life in the most profound way."



"As soon as I walk in the gate, down the path, through the gardens and into the Yoga House I step into an inner oasis. As I walk up into the Sun Studio peace washes over me. It's truly a place where balance of body, mind, and soul come easily and naturally. Kelowna Yoga House is fully steeped in the Iyengar Tradition. I have much gratitude for my teachers, for their passion and the light that shines within them. With their unconditional guidance, patience, support and knowledge, the light within me shines bright too!



"January 2014 marks the third anniversary since I started practicing yoga at the Yoga House. There were three main reasons I joined.  First, my wife practices yoga at the yoga house and we felt it would be good to attend classes together. Second, I had suffered a neck injury and wanted to heal correctly and increase my flexibility. And third, I want  to continue waterskiing until I turn 80 (I'm 57 years old). My expectations (on all three) have been exceeded. Since 2011, I have seen dramatic improvements in my flexibility. While I consider myself athletic, I had never been able to touch my toes (uttanasana), ever. In fact, I called "uttanasana" a $1000 pose. I'd pay someone $1000 if I was ever able to do it! I'm happy to say I can do uttanasana and many other poses I thought I'd never be able to do. Yoga has also helped my waterskiing. People I have been waterskiing with for twenty years have told me I am skiing the best they have ever seen. I attribute this entirely to practicing yoga. Of all the things I do to stay in shape (running, weight lifting, yoga), I consider yoga the most important to my physical longevity and well being. The instructors at the Yoga House are very knowledgable and patient (important for someone my age). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Yoga and the Yoga House to anyone."

"I began yoga shortly after my 60th birthday - you are not too old to start. I walk straighter and have fewer aches and pains. I love it and will practice yoga for the rest of my life!"



"I'm 57 years old and just started yoga two years ago. Yoga has changed my life. For the first time in my life I can touch my toes! Yoga Forever!"



"I have been attending yoga classes on and off since 1998. I love yoga practice with all the teachers I have encountered because it challenges me to go beyond the boundaries of my stiffness and it gives me permission - so needed with a busy career - to let go and find peace. The Iyengar practice enables me to "find" my body again and be what it is meant to be - tall, firm, strong (I am still working on flexible!) It's also taught in a place of peace, love, and saftey - the Yoga House!

"Yoga has taught me so much, and I still feel like a beginner. It taught me to take life in steps, consciously, purposefully, aligning feet with hips, mind with action, dreams with reality. No hurdle is too great with these carefully laid steps. I have many yet to take, but with purpose I know I will go many places. Thank you. Namaste."



"Who was I when I started Iyengar Yoga 20 years ago? I'm not sure - maybe some tight hipped, tight lipped stubborn mama? Who am I now 20 years later? I'm still not sure except someone who likes looking at the world upside down, flipping over backwards once in a while, stretching forward and not afraid to fall down and get back up. Who will I be tomorrow? I'm still not sure. All I know is that I'm changing, always changing and that is perfect."



"I will forever be grateful for finding the yoga house and its wonderful teachers [...] Thank you so much for everything."

"When I started Iyengar, I was starting to stoop like an old woman. Now I stand tall and - no kidding- I've grown half an inch!"

Sue Harper


"I am 54 years old and have a back condition which is normally very painful, but since I have been doing yoga, my back pain has been much reduced. I feel stronger and I am more flexible. Yoga also helps my stress levels - reducing them, of course."



"Without yoga, I could not walk. I have osteoarthritis. I love this place."



"When I walk through the gate to the Yoga House, it becomes my sanctuary - a place where I am learning to be at peace with myself and the world around me. The asanas have helped me to tune into my body, therefore the mind and soul. Namaste."

Glenda A


"It has made me much stronger and a better cyclist!"



"Yoga has been a long and windy journey for me! I began in 1998 [...] in efforts to 'manage' stress. I began with efforts to manage stress and stay because of the connection to my spiritual source and the primary benefit of serenity and peace I experience after each class. I am grateful for the many teachers I have been given through the Kelowna Yoga House. Each and every one of you have added immensely to my yoga journey and I thank you!"



Great staff and instructors! I LOVE the atmosphere, an actual house. I love the traditional training the instructors have and work towards everyday.

A great place for yoga. The instructor was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice - clean and bright.



Instructor was amazing, really tailored it to all skill levels. I'm a beginner and my girlfriend is an instructor and we both felt great about the experience. I would highly recommend!



I enjoyed the calm atmosphere at the facility and the helpful instructor I encountered.
