Get Bent Yoga & Dance

Our family-friendly classes build a love for yoga and dance, and a love for one-self and the community. Get Bent is a safe and supportive centre where women of "all ages, sizes and abilities" can connect and get healthy with yoga, dance, and performing arts. And most of all - wear super sparkly costumes! Get Bent also presents two provincial conferences: and 250 462 1025 | [email protected] Get Bent Yoga & Dance is located in the Centre of the Cannery Trade Centre in Penticton, BC Canada. 115 - 1475 Fairview Rd, Penticton

"Just Breathe" by Julie Bayer Salzman & Josh Salzman (Wavecrest Films)

Just Breathe is an important video and lesson for both children and adults.

The inspiration for “Just Breathe” first came about a little over a year ago when I overheard my then 5-year-old son talking with his friend about how emotio...

Guess who's having a baby? Congratulations Emily and Hunter!

As an owner of Get Bent, it's been very powerful to become a parent in the studio.

It is a different perspective to watch the teachers teach your child, to see how your child responds to classes, and have to follow the "family systems" of shows and the activities that we've created in here.

One of the classes Cheysa like most is Hula Hoop. Zoe is fantastic and gives the children a wonderful hour. At the end of each class, the group huddles up and shouts to themselves and then to each other "I AM SMART, I AM STRONG, I AM BEAUTIFUL AND I AM FREE TO BE ME!!!'

Our daughter Cheysa (grade 1) had a rough morning today, she was tired from being up too late, and it was a challenge getting her out the door.

We were walking across the school field, the bell already rang, kids were already lined up and she was crying and said sputtered through her tears:

"You know the thing Zoe makes us say at the end of hula hoop? I'm just going to keep repeating that over and over inside my head to myself until I feel better. Even if it takes all day. I know that will work."

Instant confirmation there's something very special happening in the room.

Today, I'm grateful for the team at Get Bent, but not as the "boss", as a mom.

Thank you for helping shape my little girl into a strong confident young lady. Thank you for teaching her to be a team member. Thank you for not taking any of her attitude when she gets saucy. Thank you for teaching her how self-respect and modesty are possible.

Thank you for teaching FAR more than dance.

You as teachers are all so important to the children in your classes. I know you understand how much of a mentor and influence you actually are, I've understood this too. But I've never felt it as Mom. This hit me hard this morning.

Through all the goofing and distractions, those little ears are paying attention, and they hear you when they are feeling bad, or considering a poor choice.

So...Thanks Team!

Look who rode in from Prince George! Get Bent veteran dancer Michelle!

A HUGE thank you to the Penticton and District Community Arts Council for supporting the Dance-Abilities project!

Three youth Dance-Abilities leaders taught a very special group of Pen High students 1-2 hrs a week during May and June.

The team learned about fitness, dance movements, music selection, rhythm, staging shapes and traffic….learning a full piece of choreography is hard work!

These brave students performed their dance for drama and leadership students, teachers and special guests from Okanagan Inclusion.

This pilot program exceeded my expectations - it was so inspiring, every class.

We are excited for the fall Dance-Abilities program, where 3 Pen High Classes, as well as an adult group form Okanagan Inclusion will spend 6 weeks, each learning their own dance, created and lead by Dance-Abilities youth leaders.

This group will then travel to Okanagan Falls Elementary and Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary to entertain the schools and share in discussions about living with a disability.

Walla baker passes suddenly - Penticton News

It is with deep sadness that we learn about the sudden passing of Ben Manea, the founder of Walla Bakery in the Cannery. Our daughter Cheysa, loved her weekly visits to see Ben down the hall and buy one his delicious "Walla Buns" (with butter). Ben's passion for making high quality food was evident in everything he made. We miss him in the Cannery and our condolences go out to his wife Sharon and family. The man behind the beloved creations at Penticton's popular Walla Bakery died Saturday, according to a public post from his wife on the business' page.

Born Different

What an inspiration. 85% of this man's body was horribly burned when he was 3yrs old. Through his will and the support of his family and the medical community, he has overcome his physical challenges to let his beautiful soul shine and dance in the world. What an incredible person.

At 3-years-old Kenny was caught in a fire that burned 85% of his body. Now he's learned to love his scars and is inspiring others to accept their differences 🌟
