We are a diverse team from all walks of life. We welcome all because we are all.
Lisa M - Assistant Manager
I am a Registered Yoga and Meditation Instructor, as well as 2nd Degree Black Belt in Shokan Karate. I started training in Martial Arts at 11 years old and fell in love with the strength of my body. My journey in yoga began while in high school, and quickly became a safe place to return and be creative. If I'm not at the studio, you can find me on a walk with a matcha in hand!
Jennifer Liu - Studio Owner and Sleep Lover
"It's been a long time dream of mine to open a place where people can explore and discover yoga, and I am filled with absolute gratitude to have been able to create this cute vibey studio.
It's not like any other studio in Toronto. Aside from our hot, candlelit, and music hyped classes, our studio is affordable. It's INCREDIBLY important to me that as we embark on our yoga studio journey, that we maintain a price point that is accessible. Too often, yoga is passed on simply because it's too expensive. That doesn't sit right with me, and so it's part of my mission to provide a space that addresses that."
Sean A - Instructor
I am an E-RYT 500, certified in Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Yoga Nidra, Advanced Pranayama, and Trauma-Informed Movement. I am most interested in demystifying yoga and making it accessible and non-intimidating for everyone. Come prepared to listen to your body, move with intention, and honour the practice that already exists inside you.
Daphne B - Instructor
Studying the violin for over 20 years, the pressure and competition revolving around classical music quickly took over in my day-to-day life. With the support from my violin teacher, I was directed to yoga as a way to reconnect with the « Whole ». I find a safe place on my mat, away from judgment.
While obtaining my 250hr YTT, I consider myself lucky to be able to draw inspiration from what I have learned through the studying and performing of musical masterpieces, connecting both of my worlds.
Danielle D - Instructor
Andriana C- Instructor
My favourite thing to teach is yin because I love helping folks feel relaxed and grounded in the present moment! In 2020, I created Black Yoga Society from my personal struggle to find teachers in the GTA who looked like me. I became a teacher myself to help break those barriers so others can "see themselves" at the front of the classroom.
Ananda R- Instructor
I'm a seeker travelling the Yoga path, constantly changing, adapting and evolving.
Simple but still challenging poses, active meditation and a glimpse of Traditional Yoga Music.
Tina S - Instructor
I have been exploring my own personal yoga practise for over 10yrs, practising at several gyms and studios throughout the GTA. In the last year and a half I became a certified 200HR yoga teacher through Awakening Yoga Academy. I believe that yoga can be beneficial in many ways, and I want to be able to help others feel confident and strong while growing in their personal practise. I love to teach purposeful and challenging creative classes that incorporate breathwork and classical yoga asana to increase flexibility, strength, and mental focus.
Lisa P- Instructor
"I am a 500-hour certified instructor who enjoys living, learning and sharing yoga.
My fascination with the human body, the mind and a desire to express myself creatively has kept me on my mat for over 10 years.
I love to teach vinyasa, hatha and slow flow style classes. My classes are usually fluid, dance-like flows or sweaty, grunt-worthy strength classes, but they are always accessible to everyone!"
Jamie S - Instructor
I'm a 500-hour RYT, professional dancer, avid reader and animal lover!
I write a blog on topics of health, self-help, travel and yoga as my goal
is to help improve the quality of life.
I'm obsessed with Yoga because it's given me the space to grow,
gain strength and flexibility and step into my confidence! My big 3 are
Virgo Sun, Capricorn Rising and Sagittarius Moon.
Josie I - Instructor
I discovered yoga in university and became fascinated with the movement and strength of my body. I pursued my yoga certification in the jungles of Costa Rica at the Nosara Yoga Institute and also attended additional training in Montreal. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, and Self-Awakening yoga styles with the intention to guide every yoga student to explore their body and ease their mind.
