About LVY

We are more than just a yoga studio.  We are a community.

About Us

Local in Every Sense

Canadian owned and operated, Lotus Village Yoga keeps it local. From the materials and contractors that built the studio, to the instructors and teaching supplies.  We are a local health-and-wellness studio that values community on every level. You support local children’s mindfulness programs, therapeutic chair yoga for the elderly, and mental health programs for our community every time you purchase a pass, bring a friend or attend a workshop. Family and friends are the culture at your locally loved studio.

Keep it local at Lotus Village Yoga.

LVY Studio

We Call it Home

The newest studio in the LVY village, recently constructed, was built with environmentally friendly materials and a local contractor and crew. All consideration was given to the surrounding natural ecosystem including all trees’ left standing on the property. Large timber wood features were milled from local fallen trees and any reusable wood was used to create garden boxes, benches, and a kids playhouse.

The decision of choosing energy efficiency over cost effectiveness was presented and the long term goal of reducing the environmental footprint of the yoga studio was tested. The choice, naturally, to conserve our consumption and impact, the floor is heated by re-circulating hot water and a high efficiency heat pump was installed to regulate the ambient inside atmosphere. The windows are positioned to light up the studio with the morning sun and continue well into the afternoon.

Rain water is collected from the down spouts to water the “Village” garden; floors are a renewable soft cork material, left in their natural state without a chemical sealant. The studio enjoys an outside patio, in which outdoor yoga is practiced under the large Hemlock trees and natural Deep Cove vegetation.

The studio was built as a health and wellness centre to follow and support the community’s empowerment in their health as we invite local health care practitioners, health educators and many new holistic options.

Small Classes, Big Community

To ensure the best possible yoga experience, LVY caps all its classes at 12 students.  The low numbers mean you get more one-on-one time with your instructor, a tighter knit community, and a comfortable spacious yoga environment. 

 

  • Class size never exceeds the limit

  • Never worry about interfering with others 

  • Ample space for all types of poses
