School Info

@mindful-living, program offerings integrate the wisdom from traditional practices such as yoga, qigong, and mindfulness into accessible tools. Mindful movement, meditation and breathwork nurture the mind-body connection; inspire personal wellness; and anchor self to the present as the agent of intention.

Our Yoga Training program will inspire teachers to expand their ways of knowing through inward gazing, facilitated by a strong relationship with the practice of yoga. Training will be taught in modules, with options to self-explore or work towards certification.

Workshops are scheduled on two Sundays a month, 8:30-3:30 pm (south Etobicoke location) and Mondays 6-9 pm (virtual). The following modules are scheduled to teach fundamentals as directed by the Canadian Yoga Alliance: yoga techniques, teaching methods, anatomy/physiology, mindful daily living, and wellness and lifestyle management.
