I am deeply grateful to the teachers at Yoga North for providing a safe and enjoyable yoga experience throughout my pregnancy. Through regular practice, I was able to avoid many of the physical and emotional discomforts often associated with pregnancy. Moreover, I found yoga to be a source of ‘spiritual nourishment’ during this special time of change in my life.

I have been a student of Yoga North for the last 13 years. As a result of practicing the Iyengar method of yoga, my flexibility and strength has improved beyond what I ever thought I was capable of. The instructors at Yoga North undergo a very rigorous teacher training process and as a result are exceptionally knowledgeable. Aside from being very skilled, they truly care about us as individuals and readily modify poses to accommodate our limitations and/or injuries. An added bonus of attending Yoga North is gaining a wonderful community of like minded and caring people.

I feel fortunate to be part of Yoga North community. During my pregnancy, the instructors took extra care to keep me and my baby safe by adapting the poses for me each class. This allowed me to practice yoga right up to the week before I delivered. Practicing yoga throughout my pregnancy helped me stay healthy both in mind and body and helped prepare me for labor.

My Iyengar Yoga classes and instruction at Yoga North were beneficial throughout my pregnancy, and had an extremely positive influence on the labour and birth of my first baby. My body knowledge developed through years of Iyengar training enabled me to articulate what I needed to my caregivers, specific to body area, as well as gave me confidence in voicing how I needed to move at certain moments during the labour. This deeply enhanced my birth experience.

Excellent yoga studio. By far the best yoga classes I have taken in my 14 years of training. Excellent and well thought out classes. Great teachers too!

I love this yoga studio and would recommend it to anyone! My partner first started yoga classes here a little over a year ago because he had back problems and thought it might help. His instructor, Regan, was very careful to adapt poses to ensure that he could work the pose while protecting and strengthening his back. He no longer has an active back injury and he loved Iyengar yoga so much that I had to give it a try. I was hooked after one class. Iyengar yoga emphasizes precision in each pose and instructors take care to ensure that students are able to work the poses regardless of the restrictions of their body. For those (like myself) who have tight muscles, students learn to use various props provided by the studio to help them fully access the pose. For instance, if the pose requires you to bend forward and place the palms of your hands on the floor, and your hamstrings or back are too tight to allow you to do that, then you work higher up on blocks so that you can still take the full shape (and gain the full benefit) from the pose. For me there has been a significant improvement in my flexibility, strength, and general well-being. All the instructors are excellent, though we’ve gone mostly to Regan who we both highly recommend. She cares about her students and its obvious in how she teaches. She knows everyone’s names. She knows their bodies and actively seeks to help them improve. This is a really excellent studio!
