April Kuramoto of Parksville’s Blys Yoga is transforming her new location into an indoor/outdoor yoga and concert venue this month, and hopes to start it off in a big way.

Blys Yoga welcomes singer and yoga instructor Wade Imre Morissette — the twin brother of Canadian musician Alanis Morissette — for a workshop and concert on Sat., July 23.

Since moving to the new location at the corner of Butler and Corfield streets in Parksville at the beginning of June, Kuramoto said she and her husband have been transforming the lot to accommodate an outdoor yoga space. Also able to host musicians, she said the change helps the couple meet their goal of bringing new, quality performers to the mid-Island.

Wade Morissette will hold a yoga workshop that day from 1 to 3:30 p.m. He follows that with a music concert from 5 to 7 p.m., playing his brand of indie pop and Indian-influenced music. Learn more at www.wadeimremorissette.com.

While Kuramoto said the concert is half sold-out, there are still tickets available for both the workshop and the concert. For prices, visit www.blysyoga.com or call 250-248-6528.
