Covid Protocols In Studio

Welcome to Balu Yoga & Wellness.

In order to work within the current world events, we’ve created measures at the studio to keep everyone safe.

Only 4 ppl in the front entrance at a time. We have a covered front entrance so if you’re waiting outside you’ll be protected from the elements. We’re doing regular daily cleaning of the space, doors and handles and bathrooms. We also have ‘individual use’ cloths in bathrooms.

You’re welcome to bring your own mat or rent one at the studio.

You can register online or drop in for classes. For those that register online you’ll be able to cancel pre-booked spots up to 1 hours before the class. Outside of that you’ll be charged $15 for no shows for unlimited passes and a pass deducted of 10 and 20 time punch passes. This is due to our limited spots per class and we want to keep available spaces for those who are able to commit to attending classes. We are allowing 13 ppl max in class at a time.

For those who are unable to attend classes in person, we will have 1-3 classes available by live stream weekly. Please check on the online schedule and look for the virtual icon beside a class.


We intend to keep things easeful while entering studio, participating in classes and exiting. If you have any questions please contact 250-837-3975.

Payments can be made online or in studio with cash, debit or credit.
