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.

    Odissi Dance is one of the eight distinct Indian classical dance styles and comes from Odisha, the picturesque state on the eastern coast of India. It is a temple dance that was performed in honour of Lord Jagannatha in the Jagannatha Temple, located in Puri, Odisha. The movements of the dance replicate the curvaceous sandstone sculptures from the various temples in Odisha that date back to the 2nd century BC.

    New to our schedule this month is the lovely and talented @jaimeedhorn 💕 You can find Jaimée every Thursday for a Vinyasa L1 at 4pm starting next week! A little bit about Jaimée below👇
    .
    .
    Jaimée aspires to create a gateway for people to slide into – where imagination can stretch and bodies feel held. Everything she knows how to be is shaped by her background in movement. Her classes weave thoughtful sequences with carefully curated playlists. She is here because she wants to participate in creating beauty, because movement delights and stirs what is stagnant; because connecting is a portal to joyful self-awareness.
