Welcome to the practice of classical Hatha Yoga in Milton, Ontario!
If you’re looking for individual or corporate classes in the comfort of your own home or office, you’ve come to the right place.
Whether you’ve never stepped on a mat, you’re a devoted enthusiast or you’re an advanced yogi, you are invited on a journey to a healthy body, a sound mind and a vibrant life of serenity and light.
What Type of Yoga is Offered?
Hatha is a term that encompasses the living science of Yoga. It not only consists of physical postures (asanas), but also integrates breathing (pranayama), diet, meditation, cleansing, energies and behaviors. Essentially, it is an age-old art of right living that aims to achieve spiritual growth and a higher level of consciousness by cultivating a healthy body and mind.
The style of yoga classes offered is as per the Sivananda tradition – a systematic and precise approach to classical Hatha Yoga. It is one of the few schools that embody traditional and authentic yogic disciplines. In fact, it is the only class in modern culture that comes close to the ancient system of yoga, preserves its Hindu roots and advocates its spiritual doctrines.
Who is the Teacher?
Andrea Bobby is a certified Teacher of Hatha Yoga from the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Kerala, India. In addition to being a lifelong practitioner, she also has extensive international teaching experience spanning Canada, Indonesia, Thailand, the Maldives, India and the United Arab Emirates.
Her method of instruction embodies classical yogic disciplines, assimilates Vedic scriptures and incorporates Sanskrit mantras. Taught in either English or French, Andrea’s focus is to gracefully simplify asana sequences and pranayama breathing techniques into their essential elements.
Why Choose One-on-One Lessons?
These days, a personalized experience – where the instructor comes to you – is a preferred option for yoga classes due to its ease, convenience and flexibility. Whether you choose to have lessons at home or at your workplace, you wouldn’t have to look for a parking spot, find a place in a packed classroom, set aside extra time for a commute or be just another face in the crowd!
Unlike yoga studios, private lessons allow the unique benefits of having a class on your own schedule and in your own safe, non-competitive and familiar space. The undivided attention of a certified teacher provides you with personalized and precise instruction to suit your individual ability, body type, health history and disposition.
As you progress and evolve in your practice, this continued guidance will ensure that you connect with yourself on a deeper level, make the most of your yoga journey and allow your own unique light to radiate into the world.
Companies that take the time and effort to invest in the well-being of their team find a significant increase in productivity and morale. This leads to improved employee retention, reduced disability costs and a more conducive work environment.
In the place of the full Sivananda sequence, these short bursts of chair or desk yoga sessions can easily be done in a conference room during lunchtime or break times.
What to Expect in Your First Class
At this point, you would have already met and/or spoken to Andrea over the phone, so the first class is the ideal opportunity for her to get a feel for your lifestyle, address any health concerns and to establish your goals and expectations.
Regardless of where you are in your yoga journey, foundation and proper alignment is the essence of this first lesson. Andrea will gradually move through the Sivananda sequence (breathing exercises, the Sun Salutation, the 12 Basic Postures and Final Relaxation), instilling the right techniques and alignment from the get-go.
