Donalda Beeson – The Bees Knees Yoga
The Bees Knees Yoga has been in business in the Robson Valley since 2013. Owner and founder Donalda Beeson found yoga after suffering some debilitating injuries in 2011. Looking to do some gentle stretching and regain mobility, she found that yoga did this, in addition to rekindling her spiritual spark.

An ardent lover and practitioner of all things yoga with a distinct passion for sharing the yogic lifestyle, especially with kids and families, Donalda has completed the necessary training to become a certified One Yoga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher. Additionally, since 2013 she has also gained training and certification in several specialized areas of yoga, including Yoga for Youth, Children and Families and Partner Yoga. As well she also has level one Reiki. She combines aspects of these experiences and theories into a fun practice for adults and children alike, designed to encourage community, build trust, encourage letting go, and having fun, reminding us not to take ourselves (and sometimes our yoga practice) too seriously.

The Bees Knees Yoga is located at 960 Main Street in Valemount, the barn-style house next to the Valemount Legion Hall, which Beeson recently purchased with the hopes of one day establishing a yoga studio. Currently, Beeson offers her “Go with the Flow Yoga” classes on Monday evening on a drop-in basis. “Vinhatha” (Vinyasa/Hatha) is suitable for all ages, abilities and body types. The Bee’s Knees Yoga offers both private and group yoga sessions by appointment across North Central BC. Please contact Donalda for rates and availability.

Beeson believes that her yogic philosophy is best stated by Iyengar in Light on Yoga: “Yoga is not a religion by itself. It is the science of religions, the study of which will enable a student to better appreciate their own faith”.

Congratulations Donalda on achieving your dream and continued success in the years to come.
