Private and Group Sessions
For Health and Wellness

Group classes are for personal maintenance, self-education, and overall general well being. They also provide students an opportunity to find one’s own experience while being led in a conscious manner. Another benefit is the ability to practice in a communal setting.
For a schedule of drop-in group classes, click here.
Special Introductory Offer for New Students: One Week of Unlimited classes for $25.

Private Consultation
& Yoga Therapy Sessions

Meeting for a private consultation allows us as Yoga Therapists to gain a deeper understanding of who you are (ie: each student is an individual who has a unique physiology, skeletal-muscular structure, mental thought patterns, energy level, etc). In turn, we can better adapt the various tools of Yoga (ie: conscious & mindful breathing, appropriately sequenced & individualized physical movements, meditative practices, visualization, diet & lifestyle recommendations, etc.) to suit your specific needs, capabilities, goals, and life circumstances.

Special Offer of Three Private Sessions (which includes Initial Consultation): $300 (tax included).

Yoga Therapy Toronto

Established since 2005

Yoga Trainings   -   Level I / II / III

September 2020 to May 2021
(Level I: 300+ hours) - begins Sep.27, 2020.


After many decades of direct study in India, we are happy to offer a comprehensive and extensive Teacher Training Program that is rooted in this holistic tradition of Yoga & Ayurveda. The foundation of this program is based on the respected teachings of yoga master T.Krishnamacharya and his son TKV Desikachar, along with an integration of western Psychology and Therapy.

We have been training Yoga Teachers since 2007 and this 300+ hour training will delve into both the SCIENCE (ie: the various tools and techniques) and the ART (ie: how to apply the tools; when to apply the tools; when not to apply certain techniques, etc.) of teaching yoga and can be viewed as a three-step process emphasizing:

a) personal development
b) becoming a competent Yoga Instructor grounded in classical yoga techniques and their modifications for every individual
c) evolving into a Yoga Teacher/Therapist who can safely and effectively guide others on their personal journeys

Private Yoga Therapy Sessions

All of our sessions are taught on a one-on-one basis, unless there is a specific reason for teaching in a group setting. Instructing on a private basis allows us as Yoga Therapists to gain a deeper understanding of who you are, which will then allow us to plan specifically for your needs.

Once we understand your needs, we develop a personalized home practice that may include some of the following tools:

  • diet & lifestyle recommendations

  • conscious and mindful breathing

  • appropriately sequenced and individualized physical movements

  • meditation

  • visualization

  • use of sound and mantra

  • dream yoga

  • guided ralaxation & yoga nidra

  • ... and more.

Each practice is tailored to suit your specific needs, capabilities, goals, and life circumstances. We will then teach you this personal practice (as well as provide an accompanying diagram) for you to practice on your own. A typical first consultation and yoga session lasts 90 minutes.
