VICTORY MEN'S YOGA
Join our community
We are a group of men who love the benefits of yoga practice. We are keen on exploring the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of the yoga tradition. Our events are geared to all levels of experience; newbies are welcome. We offer weekly classes, workshops and retreats. Classes are in the heart of James Bay. Our guide, Loren Crawford, is a learned yogi with 20 years of teaching experience.
"Victoria Men's Yoga creates space for men to meet and share in the teachings of yoga. We offer an integrated approach and recognize that everyone is seeking unique outcomes from practice.
Victoria Men's Yoga offers classes that meet students where they are at. Not everyone is flexible and bendy. You will move from the simplest version of any pose and progress through stages, staying where you are most comfortable. One needs to be content in the posture for it to be yoga - otherwise, yoga is reduced to exercise class and there's a missed opportunity for a deeper experience.
Theme Based Classes
Each class begins with a theme that relates the teachings of yoga to your daily lives. The theme is woven through the class and culminates in a meditation. This approach integrates yoga as a holistic way of being, not simply something you do.
The efforts you engage in are steeped in energy, lifeforce or prana. You will explore the energetics of practice and how this dance you do through movement and breath affects you on all levels - physically, mentally and spiritually.
Awareness and Stillness
Throughout each class, you will take moments to pause and feel what's the effects of the practice on your being. This exploration builds your capacity to live a life with greater awareness. It works! You wrap up every class with a meditation, putting a bow on the practice.
