"Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark." ― Rabindranath Tagore

Celebrate the beginning of a new day in the quiet and stillness of the morning. The Centre's signature class is suitable for many. This Hatha class integrates the breath with an extensive variety of postures to increase strength and flexibility, bringing balance, while calming the mind.

It's better than a double latte to start your morning!

It is fundraising time again for The Toronto Humane Society.

Your evening of fun and relaxing yoga is extra adorable thanks to our adoptable furry friends bumbling around through the class, sharing cuddles and kisses as they go.

We will have some prizes and lootbags from our friends at Lole Atelier Bayview to thank you for coming out and supporting the adoptable animals at The Toronto Humane Society.

Our $40 sessions take place on Thursday, April 25th from 6:00 pm to 6:45 pm and 7:00 pm and 7:45 pm. Register here:

Chakra Restorative Yoga with Crystals
Thursday, June 6, 2019

In this workshop, designed to balance the body using the healing properties and energy of crystals, we will use Restorative Yoga poses to enhance and relax into the seven chakras. Each participant will receive their very own medicine bag of chakra-healing crystals to enjoy and bring home after the class.

Chakras are subtle energy centres located in our body along the length of our spine. Each chakra corresponds to different physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of our self.

As we move through this restorative practice surrounded by the soft glow of candlelight and crystals, you will learn the Chakras physical location, emotions they express, and mental characteristics they embody and corresponding crystal.

All levels are welcomed and encouraged.

Thursday, June 6th 6:30 - 8 pm. Special rate for booking early: Register with payment by May 30th, $55. After that $65 (includes HST). All crystals are included in the workshop fee. Instructor: Joanne Lowe.
