“Yoga does not change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees”. BKS Iyengar
Westshore Metchosin Yoga continues the work started by Shirley Daventry-French in her home studio, just a few steps away from our current location. Shirley, a direct student of Mr. Iyengar who stayed at her house, down the street from the studio, brought yoga to Metchosin and to Victoria.
Westshore Metchosin Yoga offers classes in the Iyengar Yoga tradition.
Our studio is located on an acre, by the ocean on Parry Bay, in the home Suzanne Tremblay, the owner and operator of the studio. While we practice, it is not uncommon to see one of the local deer sitting on the hill, checking out what we do in the studio, or to see a hummingbird coming to feed at the wild currant bush just outside one of the windows. The studio blends with the outside environment: in winter, we listen to the creek running down towards the ocean, the wind moving through the branches.
The studio can comfortably accommodate a dozen students. Our classes are small, so we can provide each student the individual attention they need and deserve.
We are located on Duke Rd, right at the entrance of Metchosin, next to Colwood.
