Instructor : Samantha Sowassey - Samantha’s passion is teaching and holistic health. After practicing yoga for almost 10 years, Samantha decided in 2009 to turn her passion into a full time endeavor. She traveled to India and completed YogaLife’s 200-hour teacher training in Mcleod Ganj. Upon her return to her hometown of Vancouver, she hasn’t stopped learning. She has taken countless workshops and teacher’s trainings including intensive prenatal, kundalini and yin courses as well as a year long study in holistic nutrition at the Canadian School of Holistic Nutrition. She brings in what she has learned into her classes and provides tools for healthy living that go beyond the mat.
Students in this workshop will have the opportunity to purchase a special, 1 month unlimited pass so that they will have the opportunity to try different classes and see which style works for them. This 1 month unlimited pass is for students who have taken the Yoga for Beginners Workshop and who are new to yoga or as gifts for friends and family as an opportunity for them to try out yoga. The pass is available in the studio for $30 + hst.
Eastside Fitness offers 21 yoga classes per week. All of our yoga instructors are passionate, knowledgeable and experienced in the practice of yoga.
South Hill Boot Camp
That’s what some of the moms at the local parent / tot group were feeling. So they talked to the energetic women atEastside Fitness (new business started by locals) and asked Darnelle Moore to come out and teach a class in the community. They figured out how to keep it cheap and even include a babysitter. Neighbours are welcome to join South Hill Boot Camp each Monday & Friday from 10:00 – 11:00am in the basement of South Hill Church (43rd & Prince Edward) $7.50 per session if you buy 4 entries. Babysitting is provided at no extra charge.
