"Anything that keeps you from singing is foolishness, unless it's laughter." L.Frank Baum

With March comes spring, and with spring comes renewal and the desire to clear the clutter and make space for the new. Getting on the mat and creating mindful shapes with our body as we breathe, release and rejuvenate makes spring even better. We have three weeks before spring, and here at Beyond Yoga Studio & Wellness Centre, we have a variety of classes to make sure we enter this beautiful season feeling calm, energized and ready to release what needs to go and welcome the new!

Weekly Schedule

To get us started on the spring path, we're offering our Community Kirtan this Sunday, March 3 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. We would love for you to join us. No experience needed. There is no cost for this event, but we are accepting donations for Chrysalis House.

New Administration Manager

Join us in welcoming Kelly Thompson!

After 20 years as an administrative professional working in long-term care, I am thrilled to embark on a new journey as the Administration Manager at Beyond Yoga.

My first introduction to yoga began years ago when I started attending classes on my lunch breaks. Amidst my busy schedule, those serene moments on the mat allowed me to recharge and find balance. This experience ignited a passion for mind-body connection, leading me to spend a year as a certified Zumba instructor, further deepening my connection to movement and wellness as well as strengthening my leadership skills.

Now, as part of the dynamic team at Beyond Yoga, I am committed to ensuring smooth operations and fostering a welcoming environment where every member feels valued and supported. My goal is to combine my administrative skills with my passion for wellness to contribute to the Beyond community.

Featured Certification Programs

Reiki is the universal life energy, called chi or prana, that exists in every living thing. As described in eastern healing practices like Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda, Reiki energy travels through meridians in our body, which are essentially veins but carry energy instead of blood. If the energy gets sluggish or stuck in our meridians, this can cause stagnation in our body and mind.

As a hands-on healing approach, Reiki gently allows for the distribution and integration of energy through these meridians to increase overall well-being. With a calming effect on the nervous system, research shows that Reiki can help reduce pain, stress and fatigue. As a safe and non-invasive approach to health, Reiki is also used world-wide to assist in the healing protocol for a variety of ailments or we can simply use Reiki to rejuvenate the body and mind.

Reiki is open to everyone. There are no prerequisites.
