Our passion for yoga and strong belief in its power as a healing modality for mind and body led us to open Breathe Yoga over 15 years ago. Our mission is to provide students with the best yoga experience possible by balancing ancient, authentic yoga practices with our western lifestyles.
Today we offer over 70 classes per week with some of Toronto’s most experienced yoga instructors. We are extremely proud of our reputation as being a highly welcoming, beautiful, clean environment.
Over the years, we’ve also racked up a number of spots in the “Best of” and “Top picks” lists from websites like BlogTO, toronto.com, Culture Trip, and been featured in the media multiple times for our specialty classes. We’ve ranked in the top 5 for Best Hot Yoga studios in Toronto (BlogTO), won Best Yoga Studio for the Junction (BlogTO), top 5 for Best Yoga Studio in Toronto (toronto.com), top 10 for Best Yoga Studio to try in Toronto (Cultural Trip), top 18 for Best Toronto Yoga Studio (Narcity), top 5 Best 2018 Yoga Studios & Teachers (Sweat Equity Magazine), top 5 Best 2018 Teacher Training (Sweat Equity Magazine), featured in The Star for our specialty classes: Yoga for Runners and Yoga for Stiff Men (The Star), and we were named the yoga studio to visit for Toronto in Best Yoga Studios in Canada (Stylight).
