News and Events


Labour Day weekend can be a heightened time, seasons turning, summer waning.
Bask in every moment.

Our dearest Guruji BKS Iyengar died Wednesday, August 20th.
Our hearts go out to his family at this time of profound loss.
May his wisdom and intelligence live on
in the practice and teaching of his students.

“I always tell my students, live happily and die majestically.” BKS Iyengar

5 Week Summer Session – August 25 to September 25

Registration is more flexible in the late summer, as many students are still traveling and away on weekends. We’re offering an unlimited class pass for just $90, available at the studio during your first class or online.  Alternatively, you can drop in any time during the session and pay per class. Email or call 613 806-9642 for more information. 12-week fall courses resume September 28.

We’re testing the waters with two new offerings this summer. The early morning Iyengar Vinyasa class from 6:30-7:30am Mondays is designed for people seeking an energetic class with lots of movement. The Wednesday evening Gentle Yoga class from 6:15-7:15pm offers a slower pace and more individual attention than a regular beginner class. It’s the perfect choice for Prenatal Yoga students too.

Saturday Workshop – Surya Namaskar: September 13, 1:30 to 4:30pm

Pathway Yoga offers monthly 3-hour Saturday workshops. The first of the new season will take place September 13th, 1:30-4:30pm. Delve into Surya Namaskar, the sun salutation, exploring each element in depth, and learning to weave them together with the breath. This is an excellent series to learn well so you can add it to your home practice safely.

Hindu tradition reveres the sun, called Surya, as both the physical and spiritual heart of our world and the creator of all life itself. On August 20, 2014, the Iyengar yoga community worldwide lost its sun and guiding light, BKS Iyengar. This workshop is also an opportunity to honour and celebrate the radiant light of BKS Iyengar’s life and teaching.

Early bird fee is $45 by September 8th, or $55 afterwards. Register online now!
