For the first time ever, yoga studios across the central Okanagan have joined together in an initiative to make yoga more accessible for the community. Just in time for the holidays and the impending resolution season, the Okanagan Community Yoga Pass or ‘One Pass’ is on sale through January 15th, 2013 and will be accepted at all major yoga studio’s in Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon. Books of 10 passes can be purchased for $130 plus HST from and picked up from select local businesses.

“As a region, we’ve had to navigate through some pretty tough times these last few years. It’s no secret that yoga has become increasingly popular, I think because it offers people the opportunity to feel better, not just physically but mentally and emotionally”, says Chelsea Ray whose community yoga web portal, Yoga Warehouse, launched the One Pass initiative. “I am thrilled that all the studios have joined together non-competitively because this really is about giving more people the chance to get on the mat and find out what style of yoga is right for them.”

And there are many choices. Hot yoga, Ashtanga, Anusara, Vinyasa Flow, Moksha, Iyengar, Hatha… with so many different styles, it can be overwhelming and expensive for a new yoga student. The One Pass allows budding yogi’s to test-drive the options, to find a studio and a teacher that fits them. “There is a yoga class for every BODY’, says Chelsea, “from athletes to boomers,for both men and women. Yoga helps you get stronger and more flexible, recover from injuries or cope with chronic conditions, all while reducing stress and contributing to an overall healthier lifestyle.’

This is the first time yoga studios in the Okanagan worked together on a project like this. Just in time for the holidays, passes have been designed to easily slip into the average stocking, and are valid until August 15, 2013. To purchase, visit is a one-stop community web portal created by local yoga instructor and holistic health consultant, Chelsea Ray. It is the go-to resource for all things yoga in the Okanagan, from special events, workshops, guest teachers, product reviews, news and information, yoga teacher profiles and much more.
