Consider Karma at Christmas in Nelson

In the midst of Christmas mayhem, take a moment to tend to your health while benefitting others.

In the midst of Christmas mayhem, take a moment to tend to your health while benefitting others.

Karma Christmas is a yoga class hosted by Mountain Waters Spa and Wellness at the Moving Centre on December 24, 25 and 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.

“During the holidays even one yoga class can help lower stress levels, and help to boost the immune system helping to keep you healthy,” said Mountain Waters Spa owner Marni Beninger.

Coming out of Karma Yoga Weeks held three times a year, Karma Christmas brings several gifted yoga teachers together in one space to share their skills. Teaching this year are Anie Boudreau, Trisha Wilson, Christine Oakley, Drea Phoenix, Roxoliana Prus, and Jennifer Steed. Sat Kaur has graciously donated the Moving Centre.

Beninger said giving back to the community is important, especially at this time of year. Those attending this special Christmas yoga event will become part of a greater purpose — funds go toward several charities.

“It is a time of year when family and friends come together and celebrate and share gifts and love with each other and we extend this feeling at Karma Christmas,” said Beninger.  “By supporting these three local charities, you get to help those less fortunate and have a great time with your family and friends.”

Charities benefitting from Karma Christmas include the Pura Vida Foundation, Nelson Women’s Centre and The Nelson and District Hospice Society. Last year $1500 was raised allowing a donation of $500 to each charity.

All classes are open to anyone, including families and young children, and are by donation.
