It has been my honour & privilege to serve the Ashtanga community in Toronto's East End for the past 3yrs. When my teacher Sharath told me to open my own shala offering traditional Mysore classes in my hood, I did as I was instructed. Over the past few years, our Shala has become a sanctuary for people offering an alternative to mainstream yoga.
But yoga has turned into a billion dollar industry over the past decade. It has been a financial challenge to keep the Shala open due to rising rents, decreased attendance, & the boom of the latest fitness & yoga craze. I’ve spent many years studying all aspects of Ashtanga yoga at the source in India. And studying alternative mobility modalities to help people move through their lives without pain. But being able to offer these services while paying Toronto rents has proven too much.
After 3yrs, Mysore Toronto will be closing it's doors on Saturday, April 21st. I will be teaching daily until then. I hope you will continue to practice with me until the end.
The good news is! In May, I will be starting a pre-registered 4 week semi-private practice out of my home. Small groups (maximum 5pp) will be invited to come on Saturday mornings to practice. We will be working on specific aspects of the Ashtanga practice, integrating FRC & CHEK techniques to build stability & core strength. And once per month doing a Led Primary class. Depending on demand, there will be one-two 90 minute classes offered per week. Details coming soon.
To everyone who has crossed the threshold of MT, I thank you. This isn't the end....it's just a change in direction.
