Mat Collective – Free Outdoor Yoga in Vancouver
I have been going to some of Mat Collective’s outdoor yoga classes which are great not only because it’s free, but also because it’s out in nature. Rebecca Holgate is one of the co-founders and teachers, she’s excellent. I’d highly recommend her classes.
At first I was hesitant to do outdoor yoga because I was worried about everyone being able to watch, but I realized you soon get over it, and get in the zone. Everyone there is truly in class because they want to practice yoga. It’s not about trying to be seen (which drives me nuts), just getting your namaste on.
If I’m in a rush and I know I won’t make all of the class but still want to catch some of it it’s easy to join at the back of the class. Unlike a yoga studio you don’t so feel bad about “interrupting”. Plus at the Kits location you can view the beautiful trees or the dog beach from your yoga mat and watch the puppies playing in the ocean :). What could be better!
They have classes every day. Check them out.
Who’s coming to the next one?
