Get To Know Us
Balu Yoga’s first inception into the community of Revelstoke was in 2007 – at the time, there were no other yoga studios in Revelstoke. It began as project of passion and remains to be. We have been witness and part of the change in Revelstoke over the years, which has been an absolute thrill to be a part of. Building a studio that is based on creating sacred space were we can all work through our own challenges, successes, joy and pain and support each other has been an incredible journey over the years. One that has offered us a deep appreciation for the community and place we call hOMe.
We are a studio that is deeply connected to the ancient teachings of yoga and weave in our modern language with our teachings. motivated by creating sacred space, a space for a practice of the mind, body & spirit. We hold true to living our practice as teachers, and practice our teachings. As a business, Noelle runs our the studio with the same intelligence; holding integrity, compassion and heart in everything we do is very important to us. We are humble practitioners of the teachings and of being consciousness business owners. Living our work. We are human and make mistakes, but when we take those missteps we learn, grow and evolve from there. We hope that we can allow those experience and teachings to support our students so that we can grow together as a community.
We, the teachers and staff and Noelle look forward to connecting with you in the studio. Noelle Bovon
New To Yoga?
Congratulations you made it this far. We completely understand how intimidating yoga can be, especially with all those images of pretty women in fantastically challenging poses with the most amazing backgrounds. Let me assure you, that is not what yoga is about. But those images are nice to look at!
We value that we are ALL built differently. That both men & women benefit from yoga. That we all come to yoga for different reasons, which could include: wanting more peace of mind, needing to calm down and reduce stress, strengthening your body, healing from injury, to lose weight, to increase flexibility, to keep your body strong for other activities, to balance work & family, and for mental health. There is not only one reason that brings us to the practice.
We at Balu include EVERYONE as having a unique story. We work hard to create an environment that is supportive and safe for ALL practitioners. If you ever want to connect with us before coming, please send an email to email@example.com or call 250-837-3975. We are here to help you in anyway we can.
