Toronto Yoga Classes at Esther Myers Yoga Studio

Esther Myers Yoga Studio, located in downtown Toronto, offers a wide range of yoga classes, workshopsintensives, and retreats for students of yoga and yoga teachers.  We facilitate ongoing yoga teacher training and development.

We offer yoga at retreats in Ontario and international yoga retreats in a variety of locations. All retreats are organized through a TICO-registered travel agent. Everyone is welcome!

Our Approach to Hatha Yoga

Our approach to yoga is deeply reflective and student centred.

We describe our practice as Thinking Body Yoga: yoga that is practised slowly, intelligently and safely with the guidance of highly trained teachers who have a thorough understanding of anatomy and natural movement potential.

As you explore, you will experience greater independence, pleasure and ease in the body, and the joy of discovering how you can move toward a healthy, relaxed and energetic state of body and mind by yourself, anytime, anywhere.
