Your Whistler Yoga Guide
It’s no surprise that yoga is extremely popular in Whistler. It’s the perfect antidote to aching muscles after a big day on the mountain and an extremely beneficial activity in its own right. Here in Whistler, we have fantastic facilities, studios, stores and events for all the yoga lovers out there!
Yoga In Nature
Whistler’s natural beauty attracts lovers of all sports and hobbies. The mountains are the perfect place for some biking, skiing, and outdoor yoga!
Yoga On The Dock
We’re blessed with having a number of beautiful lakes here in Whistler. None more so than Alpha Lake here in Creekside. Alpha Lake Park has a dock that is the perfect place for an early morning yoga session. Imagine yourself, in the stillness of the morning, going through your favourite poses as the sun rises over the mountains and glistens off the lake. Perfection!
Yoga On The Mountain
With the help of the sightseeing pass, access to Whistler Mountain is now easier than ever! Hikers, bikers, and sightseers are treated to magnificent views of Blacktusk, the Sea-to-Sky Corridor and Garibaldi Provincial Park. As you explore the various trails you can find pockets of solitude that make the ideal place for a yoga session!
Yoga On The Water
Like doing some yoga by the water, but want to get even closer? Why not take out a paddleboard onto one of our lakes and do some yoga on it! Both paddleboarding and yoga have become very popular here in Whistler, and you can often see people combining the two activities into one! Paddleboard rentals are available from Lakeside Park and Wayside Park.
