The Studio is presently closed, due to open for in-person classes Tuesday, September 8. For the moment, however, physical distancing is still necessary for protecting our communities.
We hope you find our series of varied and accessible Home Practice Videos useful while you are on “sabbatical” at or near home. Enjoy them and share them, as you like. You are welcome to register for our live online Zoom classes and Intensives, which will continue into the fall.
Along with every other small business owner, we have been impacted by this long closure. If you are able, here are a few ways you can assist:
– Buy a Class Card now to be used when we reopen or for Zoom Classes
– Purchase a gift certificate for a friend or family member applicable to any event (no expiry date)
– Make a donation for the videos, audio tapes, classes or toward the general running of the Studio. (Please note: we are not a registered charity and cannot provide tax receipts.)
Please check this space for updates or send us an email if you have questions. Take good care and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Studio soon.

Themed Classes explore unique topics through yoga, meditation, qi gong, and other creative offerings over a single class, a week or a few weeks at our Studio in downtown Toronto.

Yoga Top to Tail…NEW!

Monday, August 10 – Friday August 14, with Julia Juhas
8:00am-9:15am EDT, on Zoom

The spine lies at the centre of the body supplying structural and energetic support. In this series, we will invigorate and elongate the spine from skull to tailbone and back again! We’ll weave together the breath, the four basic spinal movements and some visualization to help us release tension and gain awareness of the suppleness, strength and versatility of the spine.

Stretching Summer….NEW!

Monday, August 24 – Friday, August 28, with Della Croteau
8:00am-9:15am EDT, on Zoom

2020 has been a summer of walking, cycling, gardening, as well as copious amounts of sitting and “zooming”.  Let’s stretch out summer by elongating breath, spine and limbs in all directions. And by enjoying the sun, the warmth, the glorious skies and luscious greenery of our environment. Together, we’ll help our bodies and minds prepare for a healthy and active fall season with yoga and meditation.

Your Inner Drummer …. NEW!

Monday, September 14 – Friday, September 18, with Tama Soble
8:00am-9:15am EDT, on Zoom

Our bodies are a veritable orchestra. Breath, blood, lymph, and cerebral spinal fluid all are in constant motion, each pulsing like a unique instrument. With yoga as our vehicle, we will explore and catch a joyful ride on these inner rhythms, experiencing the support, energy and inspiration that each provides.

Yoga as Self-Compassion … NEW!

Monday, September 21 – Friday September 25, with Monica Voss
8:00am-9:15am EDT, on Zoom

Over these past several months, many of us have had too much time to ourselves, but possibly not enough self care. Using relaxation and simple meditation techniques, we’ll notice the myriad of thoughts, feelings and emotions rippling through us and practise discerning which tracks to follow – the road not usually taken? or no road? – and how and when to move with utmost succour, release and satisfaction for body and mind.

Yoga for Shoulders

Move into ‘Shoulder’ Season

Monday, September 28 – Friday, October 2, with Julia Juhas
8:00am-9:15am EDT, on Zoom

The stress and the sitting of the past many months when we were continually raising the shoulders and tightening the neck and jaw unfortunately created tension which we can now hopefully begin to release. In this series, we’ll explore movements and postures with breath and awareness to help increase circulation, mobility and joy. Welcome fall’s fresh energy into your upper body!
