I just completed my first class at Vancouver Yoga Center with Chante and it was an absolutely phenomenal experience! There were so many beautiful people at all different levels of practice. The meditation was excellent and so we're the posture corrections. This was all around an incredible Yoga experience in my very first class. And much easier on my joints then previous yoga I've been doing. Thanks again to the Vancouver Yoga Team for all that you do. See you soon, Namaste...
