SUMMER CLASSES IN DUFFERIN GROVE PARK
Sundays July 7 to August 25, 10:30 to 11:30am
Join us for our third annual summer of FREE classes in our neighbourhood park, Dufferin Grove. We will meet in the south-west corner, opposite the children’s play area. Bring your mats, family, and friends — the more the merrier as we stretch our hands to the sky and root our feet in the earth.
Please note: these classes are weather permitting!
We are now accepting applications for our upcoming 200-Hour Fundamentals Program! From September 18 to December 16, 2013 immerse yourself in a program designed to deepen your understanding of yoga and set the foundation for a sustainable, personal practice.
A Taste of Teacher Training Pass
Through June, July, and August, we’ll be offering one week of unlimited classes FREE to anyone interested in learning more about our training program. Because all of our teaching staff have completed at least three hundred hours of training here, we think our drop-in classes are a wonderful representation of our yoga education program and the types of classes and teachers we believe in. Pick a week, set up your pass, and see if our studio is the right fit for you.
Have any questions about the program? (Studio Manager, completed 500 hours of teacher training) or (Program Director) and receive an immediate response!

Internationally respected peace activist, author, and Zen master, Thich Nhat Hanh, one of the most loved and renowned mindfulness teachers in the world, is coming to Toronto for the first time in 20 years this August — a unique opportunity to experience in person one of the world’s great spiritual leaders.
The 86-year-old monk, who the NY Times says “…ranks second only to the Dalai Lama,” will give a public talk at Toronto’s Sony Centre on August 17, 2013. The theme is The Present Moment: Wisdom for Global Peace and Happiness. He will teach how people can use mindfulness to bring peace and happiness to themselves, those around them, and the world.
As of June 1, you will be able to purchase tickets at the Octopus Garden reception desk. Please note: ticket types and quantities will be limited.
