"...whether young, old or too old, sick or lean, one who discards laziness, gets success if he practices Yoga."
--- Hatha Yoga Pradipika,
translation by Muktibodhananda Saraswati
In May 2013 WE MOVED from 720 Spadina Ave to a NEW LOCATION on Bathurst Street!
Please 'LIKE' us on FaceBook!
Our studio is located in the heart of Toronto's Downtown, called the Annex - 3 blocks north of Bloor St, on the west side of Bathurst St.
That's an easy 5 minute walk from the Bloor/Bathurst subway station!
We are sharing the school space with Living Earth Healing Arts, owned and operated by Leny Carbone (EST, Dipl.Ac. 4th Dan Black Belt Karate, Reiki Master). Leny is a very talented and wonderful Shiatsu Therapist, Energy Healer, as well as an accomplished martial artist. We are very happy and thankful to be able to share this beautiful school space with him.
The main hot yoga style that we teach is rooted in the Bishnu Ghosh Yoga Tradition from Calcutta, India. Bishnu Yoga is a Leading Edge, Next Generation Yoga Style.
Traditionally, it is performed in warm class room temperatures (at about 80F or 27C), to relax the body for stretching.
Bishnu Yoga is the Original Hot Yoga! Unlike Bikram Yoga and other related Hot Yoga Methods, also based on the Bishnu Ghosh Yoga Tradition, we do not use mirrors and high heat in our classes. Our way of teaching is based on the authentic and traditional way of self-observation and self-correction through the balanced usage of all senses by our yoga students. The mild heat in our 'hot' classes allows the yoga student to practice safer and with confidence, without depleting the body of energy, liquids and without de-stabilizing the joints - the very drawbacks High Heat Yoga is known for.
Bishnu yoga series is scientifically designed to work on the entire body in a balanced and thorough fashion, developing strength, flexibility, balance and the power of concentration. This yoga method brings sure and definite results to those who practice in a steady, regular and long-term fashion. We have classes for all levels.
Our studio is Canada's Leader in its systematic approach in teaching the Bishnu Ghosh Yoga Tradition!
On a gentler side, we also offer Yin Yoga, where the focus is more on bones, joints, fascia and connective tissues - a great way to complement your more active "Yang" yoga practice.
Our memberships are flexible, attractive and very affordable. Our schedule includes verbally taught and silently led classes.We hope to see you in class soon! Namaste.
