Our Community

At Red Door Yoga® we believe in working for the benefit of the greater community. To this end, we extend our energy beyond our studio walls in a variety of ways:

The Yogic Way® Magazine
Red Door Yoga® publishes The Yogic Way®, a yoga magazine and now articling forum that is available to everyone, everywhere, completely free of charge. The publication is provided purely for the purpose of education, support, and changing the world for the better. We publish online only, out of respect for our environment.

Supporting Charities
Every year, Red Door Yoga® chooses a charity to support. We donate our time, knowledge, space, and finances towards running events that raise both awareness and funds for the chosen charity. Charities supported in the past include, but are not limited to, The Canadian Cancer Society, The Heart & Stroke Foundation, Amnesty International, Operation Smile, Pacific Salmon Foundation, Child Haven International, and The MS Society.

Running Seva Classes
To help those less financially able to attend regular-priced classes, while supporting organizations that help the greater community, Red Door Yoga® runs seva (selfless service) classes once per week. These classes are held on Sunday evenings at 4:30pm. Students are asked to bring a $5 donation to help others in need and a canned food item for the food bank, while certified yoga teachers as well as teachers-in-training donate their teaching time.

Supporting the Arts
Red Door Yoga® supports the arts in Nanaimo by sponsoring the Fringe Flicks yearly. The Fringe Flicks is a presentation of independent films chosen from film festivals (Cannes, Berlin, L.A., Toronto, and the like). With Theatre One, we help provide the opportunity for local audiences to see first-run foreign and domestic alternative films that might not otherwise receive a big-screen showing here. Money raised by the FringeFlicks then assists us in ensuring that professional, live theatre produced locally, by local & regional artists continues to thrive. Enjoy the films!

Our Philosophy

At Red Door Yoga® we believe in living life mindfully, passionately, and with true vitality. We believe in living well, not just for ourselves, but for the greater global community. Everything we do is to help you attain a more joyful, peaceful, and vital life.

We live the teachings of yoga philosophy. Every aspect of our studio, policies, services, and community relationships are shaped by the yamas and niyamas of the yogic path. As a result, everything we are is built upon a foundation of conscious, compassionate, and skillful living, with fair and equal treatment for all.

We believe in the strength of community, working in alliance with the wider circle of local medical and health practitioners. Our integrated community approach allows rehabilitation students to receive the most comprehensive and effective support possible along the road to recovery.

The Yamas and Niyamas
The yamas (moral restraints) and niyamas (moral observances) are the ten ethical guidelines that directs all aspect of living on the yogic path. They are the foundation of skillful living.

The 5 Yamas are:
Ahimsa (nonviolence)
Satya (truthfulness)
Asteya (non-stealing)
Brahmacharya (moderation)
Aparigraha (non-hoarding)

The 5 Niyamas are:
Saucha (purity)
Santosha (contentment)
Tapas (self-discipline)
Svadhyaya (self-study)
Ishvara Pranidhana (self-surrender)
