Three decades ago, renowned spiritual leader and Global Humanitarian Award recipient Sri Sri Ravi Shankar founded The Art of Living to share his approach to emotional and physical well-being, build harmony, and encourage social responsibility. The nonprofit—which now spreads across 152 countries—guides individuals toward inner peace through holistic yoga that incorporates meditation and techniques for breathing. Wellness Yoga integrates elements from modern and traditional yoga paths, especially Hatha, to create a form that focuses on uniting body, mind, and spirit, while enhancing sensitivity to the myriad levels of human existence.
True to the vision of its founding luminary, The Art of Living carries its holistic approach to wellness into a broad array of humanitarian projects and peace initiatives. These range from education programs to disaster relief that provide both immediate material aid and long-term rehabilitation support. Rural development projects target poverty and disease, and a prison program takes a restorative approach to justice. Recognizing the vast impact of Shankar’s efforts, governments and organizations from around the world have showered him with dozens of awards and honours, giving his trophy case as many bragging rights as Meryl Streep’s.

Managing his struggles with weight and depression via Bikram Yoga, studio director Dann Thew—determined to share his newfound passion with others—left his job in the oil industry to become a certified Bikram Yoga teacher. During each 90-minute class, balmy air within the sunny yellow studio envelops kinetic bodies in its 40-degree-Celsius embrace, coaxing forth detoxifying sweat from pores and revealing the identity of undercover snowmen with its 40 per cent humidity. Dann and his staff of instructors foster a welcoming, nonjudgmental environment while teaching the yogic method developed by Bikram Choudhury as they guide students through 26 postures accompanied by soothing breathing exercises that facilitate a full-body workout while enabling weary minds to recharge. To further ensure pupil's comfort, Bikram Yoga Oakville staff requires that posers bring along two litres of water, two towels, and a yoga mat to class.
