Last Thursday, I was invited to check out YYoga’s newest yoga studio on West 4th in Kitsilano.

An infrared sauna, welcoming space with outdoor patio, and three yoga rooms are part of the brand new 8,000 square foot center.

A small boutique offers yoga clothing, jewellery, mats, water bottles and other accessories.

To complete the picture, there’s Nourish, a small dining counter offering Organic Lives salads, sandwiches, wraps, small dishes, desserts, and beverages.

OrganicLives CEO and Founder Preet Marwaha is proud to provide Vancouverites with tasty food that’s good for the planet as well as for our bodies. All the food is prepared using ingredients from small family farms and, co-ops, whether local or around the globe. Says Marwaha, “We make food choices daily and get to decide what we put in our bodies.” Everything that Organic Lives creates is sustainably sourced, organic, and fair trade. Organic Lives also has a restaurant at 2nd and Quebec Street.

In addition to this center, the upcoming TELUS Garden (due to open in 2014) will aim to offer Organic Lives items as well, in a similar environment.

And speaking of TELUS Garden, this will be YYoga’s largest and most ambitious project to date. It will be located on the third floor of the TELUS Garden 24 story LEED Platinum-certified tower, that will also include a public plaza, restaurants, and when completed, be Vancouver’s most technologically advanced and environmentally sustainable project to date.

The TELUS Garden YYoga partnership will also encourage new ways to cultivate community and the perfect work-life balance, matching the company’s philosophy focusing on an environment of both wellness and quality.
