We're about to Dive Deeper
Our YTT program was already one of the most comprehensive in Canada, but we've redesigned our 2021-2022 program to be even better! This fall our incoming teacher trainees can participate entirely online OR partially in-person as they work hard at our new and improved 250-hour YTT program. Curious? Want to know more?

Finishing "A Mind Spread Out On The Ground"
We're committed to doing the work of unlearning white supremacist thinking and attitudes, and to continually grow towards becoming more and more anti-racist.
We're inviting community members to join us for a monthly anti-racist bookclub (it's free!). Get the details by joining our email list as we finish up with A Mind Spread Out On The Ground by Alicia Elliott. Let's keep each other accountable.

At the beginning of this horrid pandemic, you extended ten free classes to front line health care workers. I took you up on it and it's been wonderful - so many classes, teachers and times to fit my schedule. I'm still working through the ten. But here is what I really want to say thank you for. YOU MAKE ME FEEL CARED FOR. Which is kind of astonishing since we have never met and I have never been to your studio (old or new studio). It's the emails... and the course offerings, which unlike else at this time, seems to acknowledge that this IS a difficult time, but that we can still work within that, patiently, with self-love.
Here's to Spring coming in more ways than one. You are wonderful. I am very grateful to you all.
We can’t thank QSY enough for what you are doing to provide a sense of certainty in these extremely uncertain times. Your Virtual Yoga Classes have provided us with a continued connection to our community when we need it the most. In the few weeks you have offered Virtual Yoga Classes, you have excelled in providing knowledgeable, hands-on, friendly instruction to all of us. Your professionalism is unparalleled. Thanks to each and every one of you for doing such a good job of keeping us healthy, both in body and mind.

Thank you for last evening’s prenatal yoga class. The audio and video were great, it really did feel very close to being in a real class. Settling into class last night reminded me that I have been missing my old normal without really realizing it. So thank you for bringing some normalcy (and nurturing) into our homes during these uncertain times, it just felt really good and comforting. Keep well and I’ll look forward to seeing you!
Right now we are all stressed, fragile, as Covid leaves a devastating swath of human suffering in its wake. We need places of healing like never before, and for me and I believe many others, Queen Street Yoga is that place.
I am so grateful that I am still able to practise yoga with the instructors that I know and trust. It helps me to feel grounded, keeps me in the moment, and takes my thoughts away from the turmoil around us. Though I miss the sounds of the creaky wooden floors and the sun coming through the window and into my eyes, nonetheless, this is a marvellous stop gap measure.
I did my first online class with Leslie. It was so wonderful! Like not just “this is nice while in a pandemic” but “this is just so nice, period." The essence of QSY was still 100% there. A lovely chat afterwards and the tech worked seamlessly.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my virtual classes. I decide how my day is going and sign up for the evening class that matches my energy level. I have a drop in pass and am thrilled that it can be applied to any of the class offered! I have been able to participate in a larger variety of classes.

At first I was opposed to the virtualization of yoga classes, as my rigid view— "computer screens should never belong in any yoga practice" dominated. Although I still believe this to some degree, I surprisingly discovered a lot value in virtual rest and renew. Especially for the days when I’m too exhausted to execute a personal practice, not having to commute for the wholehearted presence of a livestream teacher really helps. It felt sweetly luxurious to be guided through a gentle evening practice in my own nest and PJs, breathing with my personally paced metronome, extending savanasa, and then playing a yoga nidra guide before crawling into bed for the best. sleep. ever. There is no pulling out of that calm reverie to worry about bussing home late at night. I can just keep drifting deeper and deeper into rest and this is seriously awesome.
The instructor from Queen Street Yoga was exactly the balm that our team needed during this crazy time. She led our staff through an easy-to-follow yoga class that was perfect for participants of all levels of experience and she made us laugh at the same time. We would recommend a virtual session (or two or three!) from a QSY instructor to any teams making the shift to working from home.
