As of January the 1st, 2011, Spirit Gate has a lovely new location in the Central Building in downtown Victoria.*

Scroll down to see the map. The little red marker shows the location of the Central Building, which has its front entrance on View Street and its back entrance off Trounce Alley. Tap anywhere on the map (except directly on the red marker) to zoom in on the location.
Bus transportation: most downtown buses stop on Douglas Street near View: e.g. #1 or #2, Oak Bay to Douglas & View streets; #3, Fairfield and James Bay to Doublas & Fort streets; #4, UVic to Douglas & View streets, etc. For more information: http://bctransit.com/regions/vic/schedules or call, 250.382.6161.
/1/ the City of Victoria's View Street parkade is a block and a half up View Street on the other side of the road. We have "first hour free" tickets in the office. If you take advantage of these "first hour free" vouchers, parking for your session should cost $1.25 to $2.25.
/2/ The Bay Centre's parkade is right across the street. This is more expensive and doesn't accept "first hour free" tickets but it couldn't be closer.
/3/ metered parking on the street is limited to 90 minutes. Please let me know if you have to be back at your car in 90 minutes.
* Before October 2010, Spirit Gate studio was located at Queenswood Centre. Queenswood closed permanently on October 3rd, 2010.
