KATIE + ALIX - JULY 29TH 7:30 - 8:30pm
A bit about Katie + Alix
Alix and Katie are Co-Owners of Third Space Movement. They have both accumulated a wide range of yoga teaching experience since 2013, all while taking multiple initiatives to further expand their personal yoga practices and knowledge of the human body.
In her six years of teaching, Katie has amassed a loyal following of yogis all over the world in addition to her home studios in Victoria, BC. Decades of gymnastics, acrobatic practice, and yoga have provided her with a deep understanding of the necessary balance between flexibility, strength, and the functional applications to safely gain more of both. She places heavy emphasis on proper alignment cuing and competent sequencing in order to create balanced, challenging, and well-rounded yoga classes for her students.
In addition to being a registered yoga teacher and a lifelong equestrian athlete, Alix has a Bachelors in Kinesiology and Doctor of Chiropractic degree. As a result, she packs all of her relevant knowledge of human kinetics and proper alignment into her yoga classes to provide a safe, evidence-informed, and supportive space for her students to learn more about how to increase physical awareness and improve their relationships with their bodies in every possible way.
EMILY SCHNURR - JULY 15TH 7:30 - 8:30pm
This upbeat and fun all levels class will be accessible yet challenging, with an opportunity to playfully explore poses within students' level of confidence in their personal practice. After the class we will be joined by the ocean loving folks at Whistle Buoy Brewing to serve up a single pint for you to enjoy!
A bit about Emily
Emily teaches with grounded strength, passion, and fire. She inspires the practitioners in her classes to dig deep using breath to find the balance between exploring new edges, having no expectations, and staying present. Her intention behind every class is that people show up and do the work on the mat so that they can live a more authentic life off the mat.
Emily sees herself as a student first, and finds her own courage and strength by the challenges and teachings from her personal practice.
Our sewing facilities are located in Vancouver, B.C. We love having them so close to home. Producing locally means we stay connected to the lifecycle of our garments, and the people who make them.
We can visit the facilities any time we need to and have cultivated close relationships with the people responsible for making our clothes. We are a people-first brand and we feel good knowing that our products are produced ethically in facilities that value their employees. We value them too!
Navigating the textile world is tricky. It’s not currently set up for the most sustainable of supply chains. We are working all the time to find better ways to approach production and make the best choices we can. In the end, our hope is that every one of our pieces creates meaningful conversation around minimizing our environmental impact and keeping our Oceans cleaner. This is how we plan to be a part of lasting change leading us towards a more conscious future.
women's size chart
Can we talk about size charts for a minute?
All SALT clothing is designed in-house. Which means we reference our own bodies when creating garments. and that means these clothes are designed to fit all kinds of shapes and figures and our sizing is reflective of that. Grabbing a "standard size chart" from somewhere online was a big no for us!
We quickly found that creating a size chart is no easy task. No one's body lines up into one perfectly straight column of numbers. We're curvy, narrow, large and small in all kinds of places. Our size chart is the result of a collaborative effort and discussion between the women on our team, our customers, and friends; Real people with all sorts of body types and fit preferences.
Go with the size your measurements most align with. With that said, a size guide should be a tool, not a rule. When sizing yourself for our clothes, we recommenced paying special attention to the area you have the most difficulty finding that comfortable fit in (We've affectionately started calling it the "trigger-spot".) and choose the size that fits accurate to you in that area.
Keep in mind all of our women's tops are made to be more fitted in the shoulders and bust, and flow from the body at the waist and hips. We've found this to be the most flattering cut for the majority of people, and it's a style our customers can rely on.
tips for measuring yourself:
- Use a soft tape measure. If you don't have one, use a string and reference it against a measuring tape on a flat surface.
- have someone help you to ensure you are getting the most accurate measurement.
- do not tighten the measuring tape or allow it to slack too much as you measure. You want a smooth, and snug fit.
- reference the table below if you are unsure where a measurement should be taken from. From top to bottom these figures display: Shoulders, Bust/Chest, Waist, Hips, Inseam
