Victoria offers yoga under the sea

Travellers who visit Victoria, British Columbia, often come to the capital city to relax and indulge themselves. With so many options for dining, sightseeing and shopping, there is never a shortage of things to do, and visitors can pass the time strolling through the quaint Victoria inner harbour area. 

While touring the inner harbour may bring you close to the water's edge, there is one new activity that can give travellers a peek below the surface. Starting April 3, the city's Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre will be hosting a weekly yoga class that allows attendees to meditate, reflect and relax while surrounded by soothing underwater habitats. Participants of all skill levels are welcome to attend one of the eight classes currently scheduled and spots are filled on a first come, first served basis. 

The yoga class may only be offered on Wednesdays, but the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre is a worthwhile stop for visitors at any time of the week. Guests staying at a local boutique hotel such as the Magnolia Hotel & Spa should consider touring the fascinating facility during their stay in Victoria.
