Marcia Olmsted, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) is newly offering yoga classes at her studio on South Pender, and in good weather, outdoors overlooking the serenity of Razor Point and Saturna Island.

Viniyoga is a highly adaptable and healing form of yoga that benefits people of all ages, levels and physical abilities, including those with health issues and limited mobility.  It has been referred to as “Yoga for Wellness” that makes use of modified yoga poses designed to meet the specific needs of an individual, and to enhance healing, flexibility and strength of joints. Viniyoga poses are also intended to promote a feeling of well-being and strength with emphasis on coordinating breath and movement.

The next 4 week class which starts Saturday Nov. 15th is full, but Marcia would be happy to schedule more sessions on demand.  She also does private sessions for those who are new to yoga and want to get started in a private environment or who are addressing specific health and wellness issues.  Marcia also does personal fitness coaching.
