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.

“Oh sweet Jesus”.
@julesofwellness is a trooper. Her shoulders are probably feeling all kind of things today 😉.
This is prep work for pushups, upward dog and - if you haven’t broken up with it - chaturanga. Simple yet surprisingly challenging. Pays off in a big way and it’s easy to incorporate into a flow as a “Detour” in vinyasas.
It might lead to profanity and calls for help, but hey...that’s what keeps things interesting!1 week ago Downward Dog Yoga Centre
