Classes

Wendy's Yoga and Movement Classes

Stability and mobility are the cornerstones of Wendy's Yoga and Movement classes. Students will participate in different movement modalities, including Feldenkreis, yoga, and functional movement with the ultimate goal being to increase core strength, improve balance, and learn to move with more fluidity and ease.

Alex's Gentle Hatha Classes 

These classes, taught by Alex, are slow paced and deeply relaxing. The postures range from simple to complex, with full permission to do less. The emphasis is on breath and body awareness. We learn to listen to our body in a new way, honour its limitations and learn from it. Even though the approach is gentle, we will stretch and strengthen, and work toward improved flexibility and balance, mental clarity and emotional state of peace.

Israeli Folk Dancing

Israeli circle dances are a great workout and a wonderful way to work on balance and coordination. No previous dance experience necessary. * Beginners only: 5:30 to 6:00pm; Everybody: 6:00 - 6:30pm; Advanced instruction: 6:30 - 7:00pm.

Lynn's Hatha Yoga Classes

Lynn’s classes take students through a range of postures both simple and more challenging. The focus is on finding balance between strength and flexibility. Mindfulness; observing the breath, body and subtle energy awareness are an integral part of the class. All levels are welcome.

Lisa's Hatha Yoga Classes

Lisa is compassionate and sensitive towards her students while encouraging them to listen to their inner self and stay connected to their body and breath. Helping her students go to the edge in a safe space, Lisa’s style of teaching makes students comfortable and at ease. She teaches the gifts of setting intentions, loving-kindness, and acceptance, and acknowledges her students in a kind way. Lisa is excited to share her passion for yoga and meditation and to give her students a space to be inspired to grow and improve their physical and mental well-being.

Our Gifted Teachers

Wendy Schneider, BA, BEd, RYT

Wendy Schneider has been a student of yoga since the early 1990s and a teacher since 2003. A long time student of Anusara and Iyengar yoga, Wendy's current explorations are in the world of functional movement - biomechanically sound movement patterns for dealing with real world scenarios like lifting or pulling, bending, crouching and walking. Wendy's Moving Well yoga classes, inspired by axis syllabus, Ido Portal and other disciplines that promote optimal mobility and stability, are a creative exploration of how to integrate yoga and functional movement.

Janet Steeves

I started practicing yoga 10 years ago in an effort to speed up my recovery after having knee surgery. Once I joined Wendy's Yoga Studio what began as an exercise program evolved into a passion as yoga became an empowering tool that served me both on and off the mat. With a desire to learn more about the practice of yoga and all it has to offer, I attended a pranayama course in Rochester N.Y. with Francois Raoult. That experience inspired and motivated me to complete the 200 hour yoga teaching certification in June 2016 under his teaching. This past fall I returned to Rochester and completed a course on Back Care Basics with Francois Raoult and physical therapist Michael Amy.
I'm forever grateful to Wendy and Francois for their guidance and encouragement, I will continue to seek out opportunities to expand my knowledge and understanding of yoga.

Alex Bovkis

Alex Bovkis was certified as a Classical Yoga Teacher in the summer of 2004. Since then she has taken advanced teachers training and is now qualified as an E-RYT 500, which translates as Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher. This high level of qualification is required in order to train yoga teachers.Having close to a thousand training hours and over 2000 teaching hours behind her, she continues to explore this incredible path of yoga further. She is currently studying with several different teachers from different yoga styles and trains in encompassing both the breadth and the depth of yoga.

Lynn Mighton

Lynn was drawn to yoga over twenty years ago and, since then, has practiced with a range of teachers both in Canada and the UK. Inspired to study yoga more deeply, Lynn embarked on her Teacher Training with Alex Bovkis of Shanti Yoga in Hamilton. This journey proved transformational. She continued her studies with Alex and has recently (July 2016) graduated from Advanced Teacher Training. She is now qualified as a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 level. It is this experience along with learnings as a Reiki Master and Reiki Drumming Certification that Lynn brings to Wendy’s Yoga Studio as a teacher. Empowered by the healing and transformative power of yoga, her classes are infused with breath and subtle energy awareness. Students are invited to join Lynn and explore yoga in a way that allows them to honour themselves and where they are at in their practice.

Lisa Marie Doering

In 2009 Lisa attended her first yoga class, unaware of the incredible journey the practice would lead her on. She was looking for something to help with arthritis, depression, and anxiety - she has never looked back. Yoga and meditation are powerful tools which restore balance & equanimity to our busy lives. This inspired Lisa to Yoga teacher training in 2012 under Alex Bovkis at the Shanti Yoga Studio and is now working on her 500 Hour Advanced YTT also with Alex. She also mentored with Melissa West and Susi Hately in Hatha Yoga and Yoga therapy. Lisa feels she will always be a student in the teaching of Yoga.
