McFarland House - In the News

2011 In Balance Yoga editorial

McFarland House – Something special is happening here. Everything from the labyrinth carved into the heated floor; the elegant stained glass in every window; the rich, vibrant colours; the beautiful Arts & Crafts fireplace; and the sense of an exciting, inviting space, all speak to the special qualities.


Set in the historic City Park neighbourhood of Saskatoon, the lower-level facility of this beautiful 100-year-old Arts & Crafts style building serves communities of people who seek to learn and grow in mind and body.


This new facility attracts teachers and students who seek to live life fully, with the wholeness and ease of well-being. Leaders with a high level of professionalism, formal accreditation, and vision within their respective fields have been drawn to use the facilities for their teaching and practice. Currently, four highly-accredited and experienced yoga instructors, Patricia Dewar, Jean Short, Marita Goetz, and Sarah Junkin, and the Prairie Insight Meditation Community use this creative, healing space. Some additional facility rental times are available.


All disciplines focus on the mind-body connections that invoke well-being and healing. As distinct from the fitness-oriented approach, yoga classes at McFarland House are holistic and individualized.


Join the pathways to balance, health & well-being, and strengthen your foundation within.
