Join this fun, energetic, social group for lovely walks in Varsity and surrounding locations. The group meets in the Varsity Community Association lobby as a starting point and walks for at least an hour and may travel (car pool) to different locations. The finish time varies depending on the route and if there is a stop for coffee. If it is below -10 degrees the group meets at the Shoppers Drug Mart (west) doors of Market Mall to walk inside.

Vinyasa yoga allows for a lot of variety and can be enjoyed by beginners and advanced yoga participants, as there is plenty of room for modifications.

Participants are encouraged to bring any yoga props they feel necessary to help maximize enjoyment of the class, along with a yoga mat.
