(Received this note today from the operators of Blue Bamboo Yoga in Jackson Trails. It’s always disappointing to see a local business shutting their doors, especially one that has been involved with local charities and fundraisers in our community. Owner Tina Ferrone also runs Beyond Yoga in Kanata, which will remain open.)
It is with a heavy heart that we announce that we will be closing the Blue Bamboo Yoga studio on Sunday, March 26th. This has been a very difficult business decision to make.
We have been so grateful for the support of the Stittsville community since we took over ownership of the studio. A heartfelt thank you for building such a warm and caring community.
We are committed to continue to share the passion of yoga with our Blue Bamboo members through our sister studio Beyond Yoga Studio & Wellness Centre located at 66 Hearst Way in Kanata. A full complement of classes will continue to be offered at Blue Bamboo until March 26th.
We invite you to join us at Blue Bamboo on Sunday, March 26th for tea, treats and memories.

Feel Amazing Yoga (FAY) is a Stittsville-based business owned by yoga instructor Teresa Splinter (pictured above). After years of enjoying yoga recreationally, Teresa decided to enroll in an intense yoga teacher training in 2013, founding FAY shortly after. Like so many people these days, she felt stifled in her previous life as a “nine to five-er” and found inspiration in the idea of a profession where she would be able to both take care of herself, and make a meaningful impact on the well-being of others.

Stittsville parent Kim Davis couldn’t find a family yoga class in the area at a convenient time, so she created her own.
Starting Tuesday, July 21 and continuing until August 18, yoga instructor Stefania Moffatt will be leading a family yoga session at Alexander Grove Park from 11am-noon.
Davis says she’s participated in family yoga classes before, where parents and their kids (usually moms and their toddlers) take part in exercises together. She wanted to find a daytime class that wouldn’t conflict with when her little ones were taking naps.
She approached several yoga studios in the area, but none of them could offer what she was looking for. That’s when she turned to the Stittsville Moms Facebook group and found a lot of enthusiastic support.
Moffatt is a certified hatha yoga teacher who does group classes at a variety of locations in Ottawa, including at offices. She’s also a writer and nutritionist. The family yoga class costs $20 per family, and advance registration is required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
