I am very excited that I will be teaching an IN-PERSON yoga session at Sport Manitoba Fitness Centre starting Sunday Nov 13th!
Join me for 6 weeks as we explore how to maintain and expand our range of motion by building strength. With the chance to teach in a new space, I’m trying something a little different: Yoga for Mobility is about blending yoga and Functional Range Conditioning to take care of the joints (especially shoulders and hips). Whether you are looking to prevent injury or simply maintain your yoga practice, everyone is welcome!

Where is Sport Manitoba Fitness Centre located?
Sport Manitoba is located at 145 Pacific Avenue in the East Exchange. The Fitness Centre is located on L4. Ask staff on the ground floor to direct you to the Fitness Centre on your first visit.
What’s the parking situation?
There is an attached indoor parkade ($2/hour) as well as free indoor bike storage. Street parking is also available, with the rate depending on the city’s rules (usually it’s free on Sunday).
Is it hot yoga?
Not hot, but…cozy?! We’ll have the room set to 24 degrees C, so it’ll be comfy! Speaking of the room, it is a light-filled (OMG windows) and clean space with excellent ventilation. Props and mats are available, and there are spacious changing rooms too (bring your own lock).
So what kind of yoga is it?
If you are familiar with the style of classes I taught at Yoga Public, this will land somewhere between Yin Yang and Flow in terms of intensity. As always, there’ll be modifications and options offered so that the practice can meet you where you’re at.
What is Functional Range Conditioning (FRC)?
FRC is an evidence-based approach to improving mobility in the body. I took the FRC training back in the spring, and I have found that its techniques really complement a traditional yoga practice. I’ll explain it more in a future newsletter, but like all movement-y things, the best thing is to experience it for yourself.
Isn’t Sport Manitoba for Athletes with a capital A?
While the facility was built to host the Canada Games, it was also designed to be a legacy project and is fully open to the public. There is space for everyone! Like you! YOU!
