Plenty of options to get your flow on
Oh my. Thanksgiving is over, Halloween is around the corner and then we all know what comes next . . .
But let’s not go there quite yet. In fact, let’s go somewhere else entirely – say a nice, quiet space where we can just breeeaathe. Maybe a place where we will feel welcome and our stress and worries melt away with some gentle movement and soothing music. Doesn’t yoga sound good right about now?
And in the Comox Valley, we’re blessed to have so many possibilities from which to choose. Following are just some of the options open to those who are ready to relax, strengthen, unwind or get flexible. I haven’t had the opportunity to try them all, but it’s a handy reference for options around the Valley. Simply click on the links to get to info on the various studio locations and classes.
