It’s an urban myth that there’s no parking in the Exchange District. Here are two maps of parking spaces in the Exchange District and Downtown Winnipeg.
The first map is a map of the parkades and meters around the studio. The second map is a map explaining where to find $2 meters and $1 meters around the studio. The studio is also within 500 meters of a stop of every major bus route in the city.
Upon arriving at the studio, you will find that we are an extremely relaxed group of people in a super real place. There’s no check-in counter. We don’t have a cash register or debit machine. And there are couches everywhere! It’s really bizarre actually.
By walking in the door, you’ve decided to connect with a really cool community.
Follow your heart in our space, and come enjoy this yoga with us. We want to see you thrive.
What do I wear?
It is highly recommended that clothing be form fitting so teachers can see the shape of your joints. Bare feet are preferred for all of our classes.
What do I bring with me to a yoga class?
It’s recommended that you use your own mat. You are also more than welcome to leave your mat inside the studio. All yoga blocks, straps, bolsters and props will be provided for you during your class. If you need to borrow a mat, that’s so chill. Do it!
Is One Style of Yoga Better or More Effective than Other Styles?
Depending on one’s individual needs and personality type, there is a practice that may be more appropriate and effective than other practices. This doesn’t mean that one practice is better than another. If you want some advice on which class is best for you, please email us or call us so we can discuss your life situation.
Usually Kundalini Yoga is what we prescribe to people, because it is so obviously effective and has completely transformed our minds and bodies collectively in this community.
Do I need to be flexible to practice yoga?
No. But, your flexibility will improve in ways you can’t even imagine. A regular yoga practice can help you increase your flexibility in a very short span of time.
Is it safe to practice yoga when I'm pregnant?
Yes. In fact, it is highly recommended. There are certain postures and breathing exercises that are not appropriate for pregnant women… at all; however, there are also certain postures that have been proven to be very helpful for the majority of women during their pregnancy.
At this time Karma Yoga Winnipeg does not offer prenatal yoga, but, we welcome pregnant women to attend our classes and will suggest modifications that will better suit both the body of mama, and the precious life that’s inside of her too.
Why is Karma Yoga Winnipeg donation-based?
It goes without saying, there are few places you can go to and provide a donation for a product or service. In working with us, you the student partake in the greatest gift that we’ve ever known. This yoga is truly priceless, and we want you to feel what’s right for yourself when leaving a donation after the class is complete. The truth shall set you free.
May this be one of many opportunities to feel the truth of your own heart as we meet, heal and connect.
