“The Exercise Medicine Program is important because it helps children like me to do things we didn’t think we could do on our own. I feel happier now and less tired and my advice for other children would be “Make being more active your goal”. -Lena Holdershaw




About our Special Yoga Team

The practice will begin with an invigorating warm-up (30 min) by Jacqui Wells, one of Toronto’s favorite Yoga instructors, Holistic Nutritionist, and Shiatsu Therapist. She will energize you with the art of movement of strength.

Then the practice (30 min) will be led by Queenie & Jonathan Phair, a couple in life and yoga instructors with international experience. This powerful duo has complimentary teaching styles that will leave you balanced in body and mind.

Finally, the practice will close with a cool down and meditation (30 min) by Michael DeCorte, founder of Jock Yoga, media fitness expert and blogger. He will power down our practice and lead us through a moment of mindfulness.

During the entire practice your body will flow on the magical music played by the amazing performer The Only Alexandria.
