SIDNEY — Yoga Under the Salish Sea kicks off again next week at the at the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre (SODC).

On Wednesday, April 9 the classes begin and will now be offered in conjunction with Panorama Recreation Centre. The program has been popular since it began at the SODC in 2012, said the Centre’s Marketing Manager Christina Smethurst.

“The underwater habitats lend themselves so well to a serene yoga experience,” said Smethurst, adding that there has always been great response to the class.

Smethurst continued to say that, as it has in the past, the class will be taught in a Hatha-style yoga and welcomes all skill levels.

The major difference with Panorama’s involvement is that the rec. centre will now collect registration.

“Panorama is the go-to place for fitness and wellness classes on the Peninsula and we’re thrilled to be working with them on this,” she said.

Those interested in signing up for the eight-class program can do so through Panorama. SODC annual pass holders and Panorama members will receive a 20% discount (SODC members must sign up in person at the rec centre to receive the discount).

Yoga Under the Salish Sea takes place at the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre every Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. staring April 9 and will be led by experienced instructor Jackie Rioux.
