The Class

A hybrid class that follows a similar structure of the 26&2 practice, this class is unique to Harvest and offers a blend of ‘Flow’ postures with the traditional 26&2 postures. Slightly less hot than 26&2, this is a great class to bridge the gap between the flow classes like Ashtanga and Vinyasa with the more rigid, static style of 26&2

FAQ’s

Why is this class so hot?

The room is heated to mimic the climate of India where this yoga originated and was traditionally practiced. The heat can something seem daunting, but it offers a wide range of benefits. The heat allows the body to warm up more quickly which increases your heart rate and allows for the strengthening of the cardiovascular system. The heat also opens up the muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons of the body so that you can progress into the postures more deeply, thus gaining more benefits from the practice.

Heat really bothers me. Should I skip this one?

The heat can definitely take time to acclimatize to, but know that the heat doesn’t feel like a hot, sunny day. It’s a more controlled environment than that. You’ll get hot, but you’ll be sweaty. Which helps you feel cool. We pump fresh air in from outside, and pull hot air out continuously throughout the class, and we have ceiling fans, so the air is constantly moving and circulating. This will help you feel cooler as you get used to the room. If you do not enjoy heat, maybe try one of the ‘cooler’ classes, but don’t write this one off right away – it’s a challenging, but very rewarding practice.

The Teachers

OWNER, TEACHER, AND PRACTITIONER

Pauline

Pauline has lived in Lethbridge for over 10 years. Originally from Calgary, she moved to Lethbridge to complete her BFA at the U of L. Her plan was to leave shortly after completing her degree, but opportunities continued to arise that allowed her to remain in the city. She fell in love with yoga 11 years ago – the 26&2 class kicked her butt, and she loved every minute of it. Off to training the following year, and more trainings in the years that followed. She is trained in Bikram (26&2), Power Vinyasa Flow, Vinyasa, Yin, Buti, Ashtanga/Rocket, and Nidra.

Although Pauline can’t get most of her family members to practice yoga when they visit the city, her amazing husband, Cam, can be seen around the studio all the time, helping our team, and ready to chat with everyone he sees.

TEACHER, RECEPTIONIST, AND PRACTITIONER

Patty

I was raised on a farm in Wrentham, AB. I attended university in Utah at BYU. While I was earning my bachelors degree I gained a passion for outdoor recreation. Rock climbing , mountain biking, backpacking and water sports are the things I choose to do whenever I get the chance. I have 5 awesome kids and an amazing husband. We love to go on adventures together! I started practicing yoga in April 2018. Admittedly I initially came to the studio under duress. The friends I workout with wanted to add yoga to our workout and running routine. I agreed to give yoga try after a frustrating string of fitness related injuries. I survived my first class which was 26 & 2. I was pleasantly surprised with how good I felt … after it was over. I have been coming regularly ever since. I may have started practicing yoga for the physical benefits but I was amazed at the effect it had on my mental well being. Taking time away from the stresses of my day and allowing myself some guilt free “me” time has been just the thing I needed to gain and maintain a positive outlook on life.

Although Pauline can’t get most of her family members to practice yoga when they visit the city, her amazing fiancé, Cam, can be seen around the studio all the time. Pauline is thrilled to be part-owner of Harvest Yoga Studio with Jess, and is looking forward to future adventures together as business partners and lovers of yoga.

Kendall is a massage therapy student, substitute teacher, kinesiology grad and movement enthusiast. She was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, a suburb in Toronto. She is fascinated with the human body and craves “in the flow” experiences.  While playing soccer at university, she was looking for a way to loosen up tight hips and ankles, as well as prevent future injuries – that lead her to a hot room at Moksha Yoga London in 2007. It was love at first sweat!
