Our Story

Since 2005, Queen Street Yoga has become known in Kitchener-Waterloo for its practical, fun, and alignment-based approach to yoga. Our highly-trained teachers specialize in making yoga accessible to beginners and people of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. For more experienced students we offer workshops, intermediate courses, and teacher training.

Queen Street Yoga is a haven of sunshine, quiet, and wide open space in the heart of downtown Kitchener. QSY is a place where people of varied demographics come together to learn and grow through the practices of yoga, meditation, and creative arts. We are dedicated to community outreach, bringing yoga and meditation to high schools, addiction programs, and social work projects in Kitchener and Waterloo. We have been recognized by the Kitchener Downtown Business Association for Community Involvement.

Our Style

Queen Street Yoga offers challenging and accessible alignment-based yoga at many different levels. Our teachers draw on their various studies in Anusara, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Vinyasa to bring their students a rich and informed perspective on the practice of yoga. Our core commitment is to offer our students a diverse approach to the practice of yoga. Whether you are challenging yourself in a handstand or nurturing yourself in a restorative pose, our classes are designed to meet you in your practice and offer space to grow.

We are dedicated to making the studio accessible to all levels, backgrounds, and beliefs. Our schedule offers a range of levels from the simpler Basics class through the more advanced Expanding Flow class, as well as the relaxing Rest & Renew class. For students looking to learn progressively, we offer courses at Beginner and Intermediate levels. New students are encouraged to learn the fundamentals in a well-structured 7-week Intro to Yoga course, and moms-to-be can participate in our Prenatal classes and Parent & Peanut courses. Our Community Class seeks to make yoga accessible to various income levels and is offered weekly on a pay-what-you-can basis. Our teachers are also involved in bringing yoga into the community through various outreach programs, teaching yoga for high schools, addiction programs, and social work projects in Kitchener and Waterloo. We have been working with the City of Kitchener for the past 4 years, offering free Yoga in the Park sessions in June, July, and August in Victoria Park.
