As one of the pioneering yoga studios in Toronto, Downward Dog continues to offer instruction to students looking to practice and learn the principles of Ashtanga and Vinyasa yoga. Since the doors opened in 1997, our main focus has been to inspire and encourage students in a life-long practice that is sustainable, enjoyable and in alignment with the yoga practice as a whole. Our community has been built on the diversity of our students, a kind and respectful atmosphere, and classes that are informed at every level of practice.

We have been offering Teacher Training Programs since 1997, and many of our graduates have gone on to teach and open yoga studios in Toronto and surrounding areas. Studio owners, Ron Reid and Marla Meenakshi Joy, have been teaching internationally and have brought an international presence to the studio and training programs.

    This November, join @meenakshiswaha, @ronreidyoga & @anandaxeniashakti for a South India Temple Tour, “The Yoga of Ritual and Devotion.” ✨📿🕌
     
    This journey will take you into the deeper mysteries of your own heart, and the yogic art of ritual and devotion. It will renew your hearts capacity for devotion and recognizing the Divine's eternal presence, as Love and Grace.
    The South India temples are incredible works of art that hold true to the most ancient teaching of yoga, as many of these areas were not invaded by other cultures. Some of the temples are over a thousand years old with ritual being offered in devotion to the divine many times a day without interruption for the length of time the temple has existed. You can imagine the energy of ritual and devotion that has been generated in these sacred locations.
    We will visit one of the great spiritual mysteries of India - the mountain Arnunchala, who is said to be the God Shiva Himself, and is the most beloved mountain of the sublime India Saint, Ramanmaharsi who's teachings and ground breaking example of living in love, service and liberation continue to live as some of the most influential teachings in yogic philosophy in our times, and serve as a true inspiration to live with devotion to our Divine nature.
    We will also take time to relax and rejuvenate on glorious Kerala beaches, where Ayurvedic treatments to assist your rejuvenation process will be available at very affordable cost, if you wish.
    If this speaks to the callings of your heart please contact @meenakshiswaha! Registration closes in September.

    It’s my last day of adjustments training!! I can’t believe how fast this month has gone by. It’s been a hell of a time learning about all the different bodies, limitations, and how to work with them for their own practice. I definitely have more confidence adjusting people and super recommend the program @downwarddogyoga ❤️ I may just have to do my 300hr here too 😉

    Are twists a part of your yoga practice? If you are someone who experiences any digestive issues, then learning a few juicy yoga twists can be a life saver! In a twist, your organs in the abdominal region are stimulated and compressed. Releasing your twist causes a rush of new blood to flood your digestive organs and fresh blood = fresh oxygen & nutrients! 👌 By increasing blood flow to the digestive organs you are increasing their ability to function regularly. In releasing the twist you are also flushing out any unwanted toxins and aiding the detoxification process. Just a few great reasons to add twists to your daily yoga practice. ✨🧘‍♂️✨ #wellnesswednesday #yogatwists #digestion #detox #yogaeveryday #doyogamore
