Free or affordable yoga in Ottawa

parliament Hill YogaWho knew there was so much affordable yoga in Ottawa? Before I get to the list let me say that I believe there is a time and place for free yoga such as building community and bringing awareness to yoga. I do believe that yoga teachers should get compensated in some way for their time and effort. Most teachers have a minimum of 200hrs of study. I spent more money on yoga education than on college tuition. I do think that free can be too expensive mostly because it can devalue your service and the service of others.

Now for the list…

    Thanks for the mention Tania! And I fully agree about appropriate compensation. Yoga teachers are full of love and compassion but they have bills too! It’s an important issue to shine the light on. Xo
