Toronto Intensives at Esther Myers Yoga Studio

Our Yoga Intensives are for yoga practitioners at every level of experience. Intensives give time and space for in depth posture and breathing practice.  Yoga Intensives may occur for a few hours, a full weekend or at the same time daily over the period of a week; offering the opportunity to drop deep inside, and explore the relationship of body and mind. An intensive gives each student more time to learn, feel and understand the rejuvenating approach to yoga taught at our Studio. Registration information

Arthritis is a term used to describe an inflammation of the joints which causes stiffness and pain and occurs for various reasons. In this series, we will discuss the causes of arthritis, and explore movements that will help with prevention and relief of arthritic symptoms in some of the joints most commonly affected such as the spine, hips, knees, fingers and base of the thumb.
