Professional bobsled teams shave seconds off their time by breathing in unison and leveraging flexibility during turns.

Choose between the Pickering or Markam locations.
The Moksha Yoga discipline combines therapeutic yoga and the basics of traditional Hatha yoga for a strengthening, toning cardiovascular stretchout. The heated room allows for deeper stretching and increases sweat to detoxify the skin, blood, and muscles. Moksha Yoga also offers non-heated classes for heat-weary yogis. Knowledgeable instructors ensure that participants of all skill levels can tap into the powers of yoga so even the least stretchable beginners can enjoy the body bending benefits. Next time life hands you lemons, cunningly trade them for a yoga mat and an emotionally-supportive goat and check out a 60-, 75-, or 90-minute session at Moksha Yoga. All classes must be used within two months of the first class attended.
Although there aren’t many online reviews for Moksha Yoga in Markham and Pickering, the Pickering location offers testimonials from satisfied clients, and the Markham location has more than 500 Facebook fans:
- After the first month of training camp I realized that this was the first year I completed the entire pre-season training without experiencing any muscular strain or pulls. I attribute a great deal of this to my yoga training over the summer and plan to continue with my practice throughout the season. – Mark Popovic
- I just feel a lot healthier, more energized. I feel like I am using my potential rather than burying it. – Serena
Sustainable lifestyle choices, environmental consciousness, and building a sense of community: these are a few of the pillars upon which Moksha Yoga is built. The architects are Jessica Robertson and Ted Grand, who drew from years of training under yoga masters such as Bikram Choudhury and Acharya Yogana before co-founding Moksha Yoga. Their focus is on clearing the mind of distractions, detoxifying the body through sweat, and building powerful core musculature that can help practitioners overcome everyday obstacles from managing arthritis or stress to sliding out of tight crawlspaces.
Moksha Yoga's more than 70 studios operate under the caring supervision of a professional teaching staff. Their diverse backgrounds not only include years of yoga study, but also apprenticeships under Nobel Peace Prize winners and careers with Amnesty International. Both instructors and students are encouraged to share their positive philosophy off the mat as well: the company supports several charitable endeavours, and its studios are powered by renewable energy sources.
