Yoga Classes For All

Heal Yoga is a welcoming and inclusive studio located in the lovely community of Terrace, British Columbia. Whether you’re new to yoga classes or a skilled practitioner, we invite you to join our membership.  Under the expert guidance of Dr. Virginia Russell, you’ll receive instruction in various yoga styles. In our peaceful, infrared-heated studio, we’ll focus on joints and ligaments, toning muscles, and strengthening the core. Overall, here’s what you can expect when you join Heal Yoga:

  • Yoga Classes For All.  We offer yoga classes for people of all abilities and body types.  From seniors to young people to those with injuries, we work to personalize your practice.  Above all, we want to make you feel welcome!
  • Love and Acceptance.  We believe that yoga can be a way to improve many aspects of your life.  This includes physical health, mental balance, and overall harmony. We blend neuroscience, yoga techniques, and trauma-theory together to help you create change.
  • Individual Attention.  We are a members-only yoga studio with small class sizes.  As a result, our instructors get to know you personally.  That means they can tailor each yoga class to suit your skill level while helping you grow.

I like the way Virginia accepts everyone for themselves, including their abilities, size, and age. She's always willing to offer or demonstrate variations of poses or stretches if needed while encouraging each person to do what is available to them. Her enthusiasm is contagious. Thank you, Virginia!
