Predator Ridge is famous for its golf courses.

The Predator and Ridge courses have stunning vistas, challenging holes and are in pristine condition. What more could one want?

Well, at Predator Ridge there is plenty more than just golf, and the list of activities is getting longer all the time. If hitting the links isn’t your style or is just one of the many outdoor activities that keeps you moving, there is plenty of other fun to be had at Predator Ridge.

“Over the years we’ve been building more amenities, facilities and infrastructure for our homeowners and resort guests to use,” Predator Ridge marketing manager Dekker Mende says.

That now includes yoga, whose participants will have a chance to win an attractive prize package if they act quickly. More on that in a bit.

The Commons Racquet Club, which is fully staffed and whose clubhouse will be completed soon, boasts four new tennis courts and four new pickleball courts. It is also covered by a bubble, allowing for year-round play, and the instructors will have your backhand ripping cross-court in no time.

Mountain biking Predator’s new Mantle Trail.

If getting out and enjoying the views is more your style, there are new mountain biking trails—for which you can rent bikes—along with the resort’s vast hiking system. Predator Ridge also offers a shuttle to the new Okanagan Rail Trail.

As always, if you’re looking to work up a quick sweat, the resort’s well-established fitness centre is available for use as well. It boasts an indoor lap pool, steam rooms, hot tub, group fitness classes, studio, cardio equipment, weight-training machines, free-weights and a range of training tools.

Then, once you’re finished your day of activities, you can retreat to Predator’s dining areas and accommodations, which are second to none.

And starting this week you will be able to go to Predator to soothe your mind, body and soul as well through its new yoga classes. Jessica Nobrega and Caitlin Picket own the Grace and Flow yoga studio, and they will be offering classes on Predator’s yoga platforms throughout the summer.

The yoga class on Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. is known as Sunset Stretch and Sip. It starts with a 20-minute walk to the Namaste platform and is followed by a 60-minute yoga class that targets the main muscle groups of the body, getting deep into the tissues and releasing tension. The nightcap is socializing while snacking on nutritious food from Crudite and Co. In other words, it’s the perfect way to end a long day of riding, hiking or golfing, which is rather convenient since we are talking about Predator.

Grace and Flow is also offering a Sunday class called Yoga and Mimosas, which starts at 10 a.m. and offers a 60-minute class on an outdoor platform that is surrounded by lavender fields. Once the class ends, it’s time for mimosas from Mt. Boucherie Estate Winery.

“Connecting health and fitness along with the spectacular landscape of the Okanagan Valley adds to the fabric of the community and brings us closer together,” Nobrega said. “We create a heart-centred community within all of our events and workshops. We believe in body, mind and soul wellness, so our events are not just about yoga or movement, but about connnecting, learning and experiencing.”

The first yoga session was held on Wednesday, and there will be 14 dates total. Anyone who registers for a yoga class before Sunday, June 9, will be entered to win a night’s stay and Predator along with a private yoga lesson with Grace and Flow. To sign up for classes and to learn more, visit Grace and Flow.
