Enjoy the benefits of individual attention, and small class sizes  (maximum eight people). A willingness to play, to ask questions, to not be married to a particular style of yoga.  Located in the Ottawa South/Greensboro neighbourhood, Studio 57, is a lovely little studio out of my home with maple hardwood floors, plenty of props, and a calming atmosphere.

Fall Session 2018

Monday – Kundalini as taught by Yogi Bhajan (10 classes)
Starts: September 24 ends December 10 (Classes cancelled October 8 & November 26)
Time: 6:00 to 7:30 pm
Cost: $150

Every class is different and based on a theme. It can be quite vigorous, aerobic and challenging. Lots of pranayama (breathwork), chanting and meditation. This practice is meant to poke, provoke and elevate you, don’t be shy, come and discover what this practice has to offer.

Tuesday – Hatha Slow Flow (13 classes)
Starts: September 18 ends December 11
Time: 6:15 to 7:15 pm
Cost: $130

This class will give more time to be in the pose and will help to stretch and gently strengthen all the muscles and joints of the body.  Class will incorporate a slow flow style with an emphasis on alignment principles. Suitable for beginners to advanced practitioners who want a great way to wind down at the end of the day.

Thursday – Vinyasa Power Flow (13 classes)
Starts: September 20 ends December 13
Time: 6:15 to 7:15 pm
Cost: $130

For those who are looking for a more dynamic practice.  The sequencing will be at times playful and is loosely based on the Ashtanga series. If you like to sweat and feel challenged, then this is the class for you. Good to have some experience with yoga before you give it a try.

Saturday – Hatha All Levels (11 classes)
Starts: September 22 ends December 15 (Classes cancelled October 6 & 27)
Time: 10:00 to 11:30 am
Cost: $165

This is a well-rounded practice that incorporates a variety of yoga styles to help warm up and stretch the body. From the kundalini practice we may employ some of the oscillating movements, longer holds in seated style poses from the yin practice, a little bit of rolling on balls, and of course a little flow incorporating traditional style hatha poses all with a strong emphasis on breath and posture. My philosophy is that the more you move the easier it is to be in your body and less in your head. Class moves moderately throughout poses but enough time is given to cover key alignment principles and muscle activation.


Payment can happen up to two weeks before session start date. If you are wanting a refund after two weeks prior to the start date your spot will need to be filled with another student first.

In the event of a cancellation by me a make up class will be offered at the end of session held or a refund or credit will be given.
