The Practice

We're a small business in Dartmouth, NS. Our community is built on movement. Yoga-influenced movement in the body supports a shifting in the mind. We invite physical discomfort to invoke self-exploration through yoga, plyometrics, calisthenics, and stillness.

Our goals are to help people reduce stress, build resilience, and provide them with the tools they need to feel better, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We have a variety of classes and welcome every body and ability, plus a range of class passes, memberships, and even have our own virtual studio for easy COVID-access!

Good Robot Brewing

Welcome to Good Robot, a brewery, bar, restaurant and beer garden run by a pack of misfits in the heart of Halifax’s historic North End. Our beers are known to be eclectic, eccentric, and untrue to style, fraught with foraged materials, impulse decisions, and whimsy. We don’t make ‘craft beer’; we make beer (kinda). And we enjoy sharing our beer, our building, and our childish minds with our communities. In the summer, our GastroTurf (beer garden featuring AstroTurf) brings all the flavours of summer ales to the familiar comfort of a putting green. Year-round, we host oddball events, brew with the community, sponsor festivals, facilitate charitable incentives, and make questionable marketing decisions. Want to sit your bum somewhere and let your freak flag fly? Well, matey, set sail for Halifax’s Most Questionable Brewing Experience.
