Dartmouth Yoga finds its centre

Portland Street welcomes the cooperative Dartmouth Yoga Centre

Dartmouth yogis have a new happy place. In late July the Dartmouth Yoga Centre quietly opened in in a prime location in the heart of downtown, above Dartmouth Yarns (122 Portland Street). Functioning as more of a cooperative than a studio, Dartmouth Yoga is brainchild of keen yoga teachers Jillana Burgess, Michele Banfield and Estelle Thomson and a space for drop-in and pre-registered classes.

“It came from essentially wanting to find a really good space in downtown Dartmouth, we thought it was an underserved area,” says Banfield. “It just seems like downtown Dartmouth is becoming more of a walkable area now, it seems like good timing.” The centre will host an open house Saturday, September 19 from 10am-2pm, featuring promotions and donation classes, but you can find the entire schedule online.
