Karma Yoga is a yoga studio overlooking incredible mountains in Aspen Landing. The spa-like, high-end yoga studio offers classes for a range of yogis. Most patrons are between 30 and 40 years of age, but the inclusive studio also caters to young adults and families.
An Openhearted Yoga Studio
Karma Yoga co-owners Libby Clark and Lacie Wournell dreamed of opening a Calgary yoga room that would give patrons a sense of community and improve their lives outside of the studio. Filled with abundant natural light, this hot- and warm-yoga facility imparts a soothing quality that suits the owners’ openhearted ambitions.
In the climate-controlled studio, certified instructors guide beginners and experienced students through their individualized practice. Soothing music accompanies beginner, vinyasa flow and yang-yin, a type of hot yoga. In advanced “karma flipped” classes, participants perform a variety of faster-paced, strength-focused poses.
Libby and Lacie believe strongly in the power of yoga and positive thinking. Karma Yoga instructors begin each class by teaching their yogis to set positive intentions and to carry these into their outside lives. “It’s not just your body, it’s your mind as well,” says Libby. “With a strong mind-body connection, life’s challenges are easier to negotiate.” It’s a way of living that the women refer to as a miracle mindset. “When people live with clear intentions, small miracles don’t seem so farfetched,” she explains.
Where Intention Goes, Energy Flows
It's a philosophy that has helped the studio grow and build the kind of yoga-based community the women envisioned. “We really believe that where intention goes, energy flows,” says Libby. The yoga studio’s instructors work hard to demonstrate genuine positivity in each class and yoga practitioners simply can’t help but pick up on the vibe.
