Our Story

The Yoga Sanctuary opened its doors, November 8, 1999 in Toronto, Canada. The name is inspired by our personal journey with the healing practice of yoga and the word sanctuary. Sanctuary in its original meaning is sacred space. These studios provide a place for a larger community to explore the health benefits of the practice of yoga.

The Yoga Sanctuary was created out of a dream to provide a positive environment that empowers people. This vision was inspired by the modern, busy lifestyle and the need for a safe haven for inward journeys. The result is high-quality instruction combining form with function, anatomy with yoga philosophy, for a well-rounded multi layered healthy experience for each practitioner. After opening the first location in downtown Toronto in 1999, The Yoga Sanctuary quickly became a pillar of the local Toronto yoga community and has been growing ever since with the east side Danforth Ave studio opening in 2004! Both studios have an amazing administration team who love what they do, starting from their own practice on the mat to providing great customer service in our boutiques. The Yoga Sanctuary is more than the classes we offer; we support a healthy lifestyle and a community. Thank you for supporting us and helping to make our dreams come true, we hope that we are able to do the same for you~


The Yoga Sanctuary is proud to be working in conjunction with many different companies, schools and supporting events in our GTA community over the past 15 years! We believe that offering classes beyond our studio rooms is important in allowing people from diverse careers backgrounds and ages, have an introduction to the benefits of a yoga practice!
