Led by Maria Rodriguez, our 6-week beginner yoga series aims to introduce individuals from diverse fitness backgrounds to the world of yoga and mindful movement. The program will focus on building a strong foundation and cultivating mindfulness throughout a yoga practice. This series is designed to be inclusive, welcoming, and accessible to participants of all fitness levels while encouraging participants to begin their sought-after journey in wellness.

  • 15 minutes before class: open for participant mediation, journaling, questions, and community-building.
  • 60 minutes for physical practice.
  • 15 minutes after class: open for questions and community-building.

Our team is putting a lot of energy and time into creating community spaces with little support and unrelated organizations should not benefit from our hard labour. You are encouraged to share about Colour the Trails work as it shows the welcoming and safe space we are creating and word of mouth helps our community to grow!
