Moksha Yoga is a form of hot yoga that is ideal for the yoga beginner as well as the seasoned practitioner. Every Moksha Yoga class takes you through a series of strengthening and toning postures in the detoxifying calm of a heated studio. There are Moksha Yoga studios across Canada and abroad.
The Barkan Method is a style of Hatha Yoga that originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. The Barkan Method finds its roots from this lineage in Calcutta, but also integrates postures from other styles of Yoga to create variations and even greater range of motion. The yoga classes are practiced in a heated room to stretch and strengthen various areas of the body. The practice brings vital balance and restores all systems to optimal health. Consistency will create a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner's life.
Our instructors are trained and certified by world-renowned Yoga Master Bikram Choudhury. Bikram began practicing Hatha Yoga in his native India, at the age of three. At five, he began studying with Bishnu Ghosh (Paramhansa Yogananda's brother) and quickly became a yoga champion. At age eleven he was the youngest contestant ever to win the National India Yoga Competition.
Certification involves 9 weeks of intensive teacher training and over 500 hours of study. While at the Bikram Yoga College, our teachers spend every waking breath studying and practicing Bikram Yoga. Course study includes Asana’s, anatomy, therapeutic applications and health benefits of Yoga, nutrition and philosophy of Yoga Re-certification is required every 3 years. Teachers further their development by attending Bikram’s seminars and posture clinics and by maintaining a personal practice.
Bikram Yoga is a very specialized, precise form of yoga. To get the greatest benefit, you need an instructor that is also highly specialized. Bikram Choudhury personally trains and certifies his instructors, ensuring his methods and philosophies are preserved.
My journey into Bikram Yoga started in the Spring of 2001. I instantly
knew that Bikram Yoga would be a very useful tool to create balance
in my physical body. In the Fall of 2003 my father got sick and
I began to understand that my yoga was helping me stay grounded
and connected mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually
in order to be there for him in his process of dying.
I continue to grow and learn about myself while strengthening, stretching and challenging my body. I feel authentically ME and it is through my experiences I guide my classes, with the intention of creating a safe space for my students to discover their true authentic Body's, Mind's and Spirit's.
