Anatomy of Yoga

Anatomy of Yoga
with Anne Marie Guedon

Come spend a few hours learning about the anatomy of your body and how that knowledge can inform your physical yoga practice. We will go beyond the basics in discussing your bone structure and personalize the information so that you can see the impact of your individual anatomy on your yoga practice. Key muscles and actions will be discussed in order to help the student be more aware of how to be most effective and efficient in their physical practice, as well as how to minimize the chance of injury. By working with the principles of biomechanics and how they apply to your individual anatomical variation, your ability to self-correct grows and you begin to refine your physical practice.


Week 1 will focus on the anatomy of the pelvis and legs, with special attention brought to joint construction and safety. Week 2 will focus on the spine and arms with special attention on maintaining the health of the spine and becoming aware of the muscles that play an active role in the stabilization of the shoulder joint.


All levels welcome.  The information will revolve around the practice of yoga but the information can be applied to anyone involved in physical activities or sports. Information will go beyond the basics, but will be accessible to those without any previous exposure to the topic.

Yamuna Body Rolling Series

4-Week series with Cara Benoit

SUNDAYS 3:00 - 4:00 PM   OCTOBER 29 - NOVEMBER 19

Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) is an original fitness and therapy practice that was created by Yamuna Zake and combines healing, wellness, and injury prevention in one workout. YBR heals body problems and at the same time helps you get in shape.

YBR is essentially self-massage. With balls of various sizes and firmness, you use your body weight and small movements to release tension from your neck, back, leg muscles and more. This unique approach to body fitness combines direct bone stimulation, elongation and alignment of muscles, immediate feedback of where we are stuck and creates a feeling of spaciousness in our joints. We will use various sizes and densities of balls to knead out tightness and teach you routines.

By October 22: $80 + GST Promo Code: YamunaEarlyBird

After October 22: $100 + GST

Morning Series with ANNE-MARIE GUÉDON

MONDAYS TO THURSDAYS   7:00 - 7:45 AM   OCT 10 - NOV 2

Over the course of 4 weeks, students will have the opportunity to gradually build the knowledge and space in the body to safely attempt Full Splits, King Pigeon, Wheel and its variations, and Compass Pose. Working towards the goal of the peak pose will give direction to the practices, but students are welcome to enjoy the practice for the benefits in strength and flexibility without attempting the peak pose if they so choose. Some experience with yoga will help, but intensity will be low to moderate. Curious beginners are welcome. NOTE: The series starts on a Tuesday because Monday the 9th is.a holiday and the studio will be closed.
