“Don’t just do something, sit there”

Welcome to Full Circle Yoga. We specialize in Hatha Yoga, Gentle Somatic Yoga, ManYoga, and a growing number of classes in Yoga for Healthy Ageing.  The studio is in Telkwa, northwest BC, a heritage log home on the banks of the beautiful Bulkley River.

SUMMER EVENTS:  our regular classes resume in September, you’ll be able to start registering in August.

In the meantime, there are a number of FULL CIRCLE yoga events in the valley:

July 5-7 we are offering YOGA at Smithers’ Midsummer Festival.  BYOM (Bring Your Own Mat).

July 15-31 is Telkwa’s first-ever Yoga Teacher Training at Full Circle Studio.  The 200-hour Intensive is being led by SOYA (the South Okanagan Yoga Association) and I will be assisting. For more information please check https://www.soyayoga.com/product/200-hour-yoga-teacher-training-smithers-bc/

In August, watch for FREE Kid & Family Yoga at the Telkwa Reading Centre.  Outdoors if the weather is nice, inside the studio if not.

As we go in to what may be a long, hot, summer, here are some words from Zen poet, scholar and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh:

“Our civilization is a civilization of borrowing.  We have borrowed from ourselves, from our health, from the planet…  It’s very important to wake up and see that what is available in the here and now is already sufficient for us to be nourished, to be happy.  We don’t need to strive to get more, exploiting the planet as we do so.  Our way of living our life and planning our future has led us into this situation.”

“One Buddha is not enough; we need a collective awakening.  All of us have to become Buddhas for our planet to survive.”

Full Circle offers yoga education, private classes and retreats in northwestern BC. Phillipa Beck owns and operates the studio, and is partner in Northern Sky Meditation and Yoga Wilderness Retreats.  She is trained in Hatha yoga, Gentle Somatic Yoga, Yoga for Anxiety and Depression, and Qi Gong.

Practice with Full Circle Yoga for conscious embodiment: connecting to yourself, and the planet.

"I so look forward to Tuesday morning ManYoga. Lately I've been sitting on a chair for the class but I still get something out of it."
