Axel Molema Yoga Instruction at Body Mind Soul Yoga
A full-time yoga teacher since the 1960s, Axel Molema of Body Mind Soul Yoga was a pioneer for the now-prospering Toronto yoga scene. After studying for four years at the very first studio ever opened in Toronto, Molema completed his teacher training and dedicated himself to turning this passion into a full-time endeavour. He now conducts yoga classes in various churches, community centres, and university athletic clubs throughout the area. Molema has studied and worked alongside many notable yogis over the years, drawing much of his inspiration from Swami Sivananda, the founder of Integral yoga, who believed yoga should promote social engagement, spiritual transformation, discipline, and wisdom.
Today, Molema continues to teach 15 classes a week, guiding students in hatha yoga and breathing techniques that aim to enhance flexibility, coordination, strength, and inner peace. During his classes, he shepherds students through athletic and therapeutic positions, as well as delves into yoga philosophies that students can employ practically in their everyday lives to help them manage stress, personally grow, and effectively imitate pretzels in games of charades. He regularly lectures on healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits, also offering private coaching sessions where students can seek his counsel on applying yoga philosophies in their work or scholastic endeavours.
