At Crossroads Collective in Langley, we embrace a mindfulness-based approach to healing and personal growth and incorporate the rich traditions of yoga to help clients release, restore and connect to their authentic selves.
Creating the mind-body-spirit connection can not only create an internal safe space for healing but can help minimize the negative effects of anxiety and depressive symptoms that prevent growth and inspiration for change.
At our Langley baseed yoga studio, we offer a variety of different classes designed to help clients become more connected to their bodies through acceptance, compassion, and hope.

What Is Yoga?
A millennia-old discipline from India, Yoga is an amalgamation of physical poses, guided breathing, and mental focus to help achieve holistic well-being. By combining movement with relaxation techniques, the practice has stood the test of time and is increasingly becoming a preferred way to reach a state of tranquillity in our modern-day lives.
Who Is Yoga Beneficial For?
For those with certain health conditions, yoga is a useful tool to maintain well-being. Numerous studies have proven that it can aid in treating the symptoms of back pain, arthritis, depression, anxiety, neck and back stiffness, fibromyalgia, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), migraines, sleeplessness, menopausal symptoms, and body weight control.

TAKING APPOINTMENTS IN PERSON
Hi! My name is Ritika and you can find me teaching yoga at Crossroads, Langley.
I come with an experience of teaching yoga since more than 2 decades, ranging from hatha to restorative practices and my clientele ranging from 3 years to 100 years! Being a reiki practitioner myself, most of my classes are very intuitive of what the person in front of me wants. I draw the energy from my clients.
And hence, yoga for me is just not a profession, it is my passion. It drives me a little closer to my mission of spreading love and happiness with gratitude.
Yoga is merely not a physical practice. It is an art, a science, a philosophy and a way of life impacting every level of consciousness – physical, mental, emotional, moral and spiritual. My practices of yoga encompass all these components to give you a holistic picture of yourself. You can expect a lot of mental and emotional release with the support of hands-on postures, mindful movements and breathwork. I usually like to end my sessions with deep relaxation or yoga nidra using sound bowls and chants that work magically to release the blockages from physical and emotional levels.
I’m excited to see you all on the mat and see you on the inside!
