These yoga classes and retreats are offered specifically with the round body in mind. In these classes and retreats, not only will you have the opportunity to explore yoga in a way that suits your constitution/anatomy best, you will also be able to practice and explore in a comfortable, non-competitive environment in small groups, in pleasant surroundings. Classes will include restoration (deep relaxation) practices, gentle yoga and mindful movement.

Absolute beginners welcome along with any other “level.” Any size is welcome. This exploration is not about how big or not big, nor how advanced or not advanced, how flexible, nor how strong. Nor is it about weight loss. It is an opportunity to come and begin from where you are, to move your body and quiet your mind in a comfortable, supportive environment.

NO YOGA EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY, yes really!
And your teacher is round, too!

These offerings are intended for beginners and do not include vigorous practices, however, if you have done yoga, they include a significant amount of restorative practice–of benefit to anyone–and foundational principles that can be applied to any level of practice.  Class size is small enough to accommodate modifications and individual attention.  And because stress is a significant challenge faced by most of us, ample time is given to explore relaxation/restoration practices so you can also learn useful tools to counterpoise everyday stress and its effects.

Want a little taste of Yoga for Round Bodies?  Here is a video showing
part of a leg/hip opener sequence that is excellent for a long day
of desk-sitting or standing.  Always consult your health care
provider before doing any new exercise if you have an injury
or pre-existing condition that could be aggravated.

TESTIMONIALS FROM CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

 

 

 

 

 

“I loved it! It was the first day in months where I did not feel the urge for a
nap that day!  I felt more flexible for the next 2 days.”
~ N.S.B., Toronto

“I found the workshop to be helpful and definitely made me want
to get back into yoga classes again.”
~ N.S., Toronto


TESTIMONIALS FROM RETREATS

I feel different about yoga after attending Tiina’s retreat. Her gentle approach, complete with options to make poses work for all body types, makes yoga an experience from which all can benefit. Stiffness which I sometimes feel after sitting for long periods of time was completely gone after our weekend retreat. I feel more limber than I have in a very long time.

Tiina has tremendous knowledge which she is willing to share in an understandable, easy manner. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to get into yoga or back into yoga. Her approach is refreshing.
~ D.B., Toronto

The weekend was very enjoyable.  Good food, good classes, and good company.  You are very knowledgeable and give an excellent presentation as well as well-organized classes.  Your venue was well chosen.  It was jam-packed with activities.  The only problem was that we could have used more time!  I loved your talks, especially the one on home remedies.  You could do even more of that.  Thanks for a lovely weekend.
~ T.M., Etobicoke
