‘mokSana’ (pronounced ‘mokshana’) is a Sanskrit word meaning:
“The magic art of releasing” ™
MokSana Yoga & Healing Center was founded in December 2001 with a mandate to provide inspiring yoga classes in a variety of styles. Our center offers drop-in yoga classes, a Yoga-Alliance certified 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training course, continuing education workshops for yoga teachers and students, healing arts practitioners, yoga retreats, and retail.
At our facility, freedom – or moksha – is experienced through the practices of traditional and contemporary approaches to yoga, meditation, and holistic health. Our studio is located in a two-story heritage building in Victoria's Old Town. With its high ceilings, natural light, and peaceful atmosphere, MokSana is a wonderful place to experience the vital connection of body, breath, mind, and spirit.
MokSana is committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for all people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, profession, nationality, disability or religion. Yoga means union and the practice of yogic techniques help us to connect to the part of us that transcends these labels, ultimately leaving us with a deeper appreciation of each other’s “essence”. Our change rooms, washrooms and showers are not gender specific. The first floor is wheelchair accessible and the second floor is accessible by chair lift for those who cannot negotiate stairs. The first floor studio features a beautiful mural and infrared heating and the second floor studio features underfloor heating and large windows facing Pandora Avenue.
Moksana Yoga & Healing Centre is grateful to be working on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen (Songhees) First Nation and to have the Songhees Nation Investment Corporation lease their building to us. We gather here as a community to practice the teachings of yoga that have been passed down from generation to generation in a safe and nurturing environment where students can explore body, breath, mind and spirit to the benefit of us all.
