Centre Luna Yoga is located amongst the boutiques, restaurants and offices of the business district in Old Montreal. It occupies a large open space, filled with natural light and vibrant energy. With high ceilings and 10 foot high windows looking out onto St-Paul Street, the mood is peaceful and serene. With the strong support of family, friends, and students, owner Jennifer Maagendans and co-manager/life partner Jason Kent opened the studio in July 2003. It has now become a sanctuary in Old Montreal offering a calm and soothing atmosphere for people to learn about, and discover, the path of Yoga. The studio is open 7 days a week, offering a unique approach to yoga that incorporates peace and joy into a dynamic and active Vinyasa-style practice. This invigorating and challenging flow encourages openness with constant breath awareness, an overall sense of bliss and peace, and a deep connection to the earth and to each other.
