Yoga enthusiasts and first timers alike are flocking to Cahilty Creek Kitchen & Taproom on Tuesday nights. 

Since the Pints and Poses program started in May, classes were sold out and they quickly added a second class on Thursday. 

For $20 a class or $70 for four classes participants are guided through a Baptiste Power Yoga class and awarded with a cold beer or cider. 

Instructor Amy Atkinson said the class can be modified for all levels and experience. 

Atkinson is a new Shift Power Yoga teacher and certified Baptiste Power Yoga teacher and the owner of Shift Power Yoga Kamloops. 

“I wanted to dive deeper into my personal yoga practice and be able to share the tools of yoga to create a more impactful experience for my exercise participants and students,” she said. 

She added she is grateful for the opportunity and space.

“Pints and Poses would not be possible if they weren’t so willing to try this idea.”

One of the restaurants owners, Yolanda Dye, said they are looking forward to greeting new faces as the class continues into the fall. 

“(They will continue) as long as there is interest and attendance,” she said. “With the new studio opening this upcoming season we hope to create partnerships along the way and still cater to this type of event.

“Amy is a great instructor and community member, most importantly an asset to our community because she is such a great Sun Peaks ambassador. She constantly receives great feedback and gratitude from all of us. She works us pretty hard and we all look forward to a great craft mug after each class.”
