When one door closes, another opens….

Since 2009, the Ten Yoga Studio located at 204 Simcoe Ave, has succeeded in providing a relaxing environment in our community, while providing a home base for yoga teachers and wellness professionals. Having been the longest running Yoga Studio in Georgina, it’s with sense of pride and a heavy heart; I announce the Studio closing and my teaching sabbatical.

In 2008, I started teaching in my living room, before I joined the Georgina Healing Arts Centre and took on the role of developing the yoga programming for the centre – now known as the Ten Yoga Studio. Like the meaning of Yoga, union or to come together; I am proud to say that Ten Yoga’s principals were built on egalitarianism. Working under the “Ten Yoga” umbrella the unified brand provided clear messaging to the public, whereas co-operatively sharing the studio provided financial efficiency, while respecting the team as independent operators.

I am very proud of the accomplishments of this little yoga business that started in my living room, with the enduring support of my husband Dave, it certainly grew more than I expected. It’s time for a rest, a sabbatical will be welcomed. I wish the team success. Special thanks to all of the students who have trusted my teachings – I’ll see you on the mat soon!
