A place of positive vibes, a place of flow, a place of rediscovery.


Welcome to Essential Yoga Studio, a sustainable sanctuary in the mountains with a big heart.  Established in 2004, Essential Yoga Studio is deeply rooted and nestled within the Canadian Rockies in the active community of Fernie, British Columbia. 

Feel welcomed by the amazing vibes of Essential

Essential Yoga started up town in 2004 in a room in the back of a heritage building.  Then we moved to half of our present space and built it into a vibrant place that has helped to maintain the positive growing vibe that the Fernie community has.
Our focus as a studio and as a business, is to create an uplifted community spirit.  From beautifying the side of the Highway, to bringing the community together through classes, special events and parties.  We are a place people feel welcomed and loved.
Our studio has been known to set the bar high, not only with the unparalleled teachings but, also with the kind of beautiful & clean space we want students to learn the practice of yoga in.
Come to Essential Yoga to be part of something truly good!

All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome here - a variety of classes, workshops, and retreats in addition to grassroots fundraising events are offered for everyone.  This is more than just a studio - it is a community of people that practice yoga for a variety of different reasons and intentions, from physical stretching after a long summer bike ride or winter powder day, to settling the mind and finding inner peace.

We aren't a brand, we are a community- we are love.  Essential Yoga opened for one reason, to help others learn that they can make themselves feel good.  This feeling of goodness radiates from the core of this studio.


Awakening since 2004.
