During the month of January, we asked you first to nominate, then to vote for, your favourite Vancouver yoga studios. Many of you weighed in, sharing where you go to stretch, de-stress and increase your overall wellness. The voting was fast and furious at times, and it quickly became very clear to us that Vancouver moms take yoga seriously. It was also clear to use that each and every studio in the city has something unique to offer, depending on what you’re looking for from your practice. It’s definitely worth checking out a few as you hunt for your personal favourite. But in the end only one yoga studio can win the title Best of Vancouver. Which one had what it takes?
Best of Vancouver: Bikram Yoga Vancouver Takes Top Honours
Once all the votes were tallied, Bikram Yoga Vancouver walked away with the Best of Vancouver title for yoga studios. Commanding 42% of the vote, and with three locations around the city to practice in, the room isn’t the only thing that’s hot about Bikram.
