Toronto Workshops at Esther Myers Yoga Studio
Friday, June 14, with Tama Soble
Explore asana and pranayama techniques that can assist you with the challenges of insomnia. We will incorporate practices that enhance relaxation for body and mind, and can be done in preparation for or return to sleep. There will be time to discuss and record the practices. This workshop is appropriate for students and teachers at all levels.
Thursday, June 20, with Julia Juhas
Rejuvenate your yoga practice with some live music. Relax, go deep and soak up the soothing sounds of an acoustic guitar and a singer’s voice as you ground, breathe and elongate the spine. Take your time, gently move and why not hum or sing along if you wish? Any song requests, please email Julia directly at email@example.com and she will do her best to accommodate.
Sunday, June 23, with John Campbell
3:00pm- 5:00pm, $40
Yoga Nidra is an experiential meditation practice that produces a state of deep relaxation similar to sleep in which we remain aware. From this place, we experience, notice and welcome the comings and goings of different aspects and layers of the self such as physical sensations, feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs. In Yoga Nidra, we are given the opportunity to feel past all these transient experiences and rest in the unchanging, peaceful, welcoming ground of our being.
Sunday, July 14, with Mar Jean Olson
Practise beneficial exercises for strength, flexibility, movement awareness, injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Monday, July 15, with Tama Soble

Tuesday, August 13, with Monica Voss
10:30am-12:30pm, no charge
Walking a labyrinth increases focus and concentration. As we walk in contemplation, we pay more attention to our breathing and our thoughts and sometimes the less helpful thoughts decrease and by the end, the mind feels refreshed.
Those taking public transit will meet outside the High Park Subway Station (toward High Park Av.) at 10:30am and walk to the Labyrinth together. If you are travelling by car enter the park from Bloor Street West (not the Queensway) and follow the road to the Grenadier Restaurant parking lot. Let’s convene just outside the entrance to the Restaurant at 11:00am.
Thursday, September 12, 6:15pm
Presentation begins at 6:30pm. RSVP
For those interested in becoming a yoga teacher, enhancing a previous training or simply deepening their own practice and knowledge. There is a new non-academic option for those not intending to teach. Please enquire.
