Yoga in Salmon Arm has blossomed during the past 7 years. Diana Walker studied Yoga and Meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1970s in California, Switzerland and Belgium. Then Diana led yoga classes on the beach, under the leadership of Dr. Paul Bragg. This was in Honolulu, Hawaii on Waikiki Beach in the 1970s.
Recently a young couple who have just returned from studying in India for 3 months, Kevin and Lara, are teaching traditional yoga in the Salmon Arm area. My sister Goldie and I love their classes.
This ancient practice from India was almost non-existent in Salmon Arm, BC, Canada until Nancy Whitticase opened her Namaste Yoga and Wellness Centre in 2007. Diana Walker loved her 5 years in Vancouver recently and was able to get wonderful photographs of Yoga Teacher Christine Germyn along with BC Olympic Champion Wrestler Nick Ugoalah, who became my good friends. The photos below were taken at Jericho Beach, Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The photos below were taken at Kitsilano Beach, Yoga class led by Christine Germyn.
There are so many opportunities in Vancouver to study yoga. Diana Walker’s preference is for those studios and teachers who keep the original asana poses, and mostly Hatha yoga, which is what was taught traditionally in India, and which was taught when I was learning over 30 years ago.
I love yoga! – I feel better mentally, spiritually and physically when I remember to practice the asanas, and remember to meditate and remember to breathe. Take a deep breath. Relax!
I wish you Vibrant Health!
