Advanced

Designed for students with a solid grasp of the movement and alignment principles of yoga as presented in Essentials and Intermediate, Advanced classes challenge our perception of what we think possible and show through mindful awareness and intelligent preparation, we can playfully push our edges and go deeper than we believe to be possible.

Advanced With Ropes

Expect a well-rounded sequence that provides balanced flexibility and strength work. This class will provide insight into the progressions of alignment and core yogic principles and will use the rope wall to provide extra strength and traction. You'll leave feeling strong and long! Suitable for those with a regular practice (no ropes experience necessary).

Barre

This is not your average barre class. Our instructors take their years of dance, yoga and movement training to create unique classes that encourage healthy range of movement and focus on some of the aspects of movement that aren’t always emphasized in yoga class (but are super helpful). Suitable for all levels.

Beginner

New to yoga (or maybe it’s been so long it feels like the first time…)? This class assumes no prior knowledge and provides a welcoming, slow introduction to the foundational principles of the practice including pose alignment, breath practices and the meditative elements of moving deliberately. Suitable for all levels.

Caregiver and Baby

Bring your baby with you as you stretch, strengthen and find a community of other parents with new babies. Early parenthood is demanding on hearts, minds, and bodies and this class will give you the tools you need to stay resilient and strong through sleepless nights, grumpy babies and the aches and pains of carrying and feeding! Suitable for all levels.

Essentials

Expect a well-rounded sequence that provides balanced flexibility and strength work. This class will provide insight into the fundamentals of alignment and core yogic principles. Poses will be linked together in appropriate sequences that help deepen effect. Breath work and meditative elements will be woven through each class. Suitable for all levels.

Flow and Restore

Sometimes you feel like a flow, sometimes you want to melt into a bolster. We say why make it an either/or. Feel the heat and release of a flowing practice then deliberately wind down to the incomparable comfort and healing of a guided restorative practice. Suitable for all levels.

Functional Flow Yoga

All levels flow class that combines more familiar yoga poses with functional movements for greater mobility, strength and agility.

Fusion

Fusion is the intersection of yoga and pilates woven together to create an hour of mindful movement. Expect this class to be impactful in its intensity, curated playlist and playful exploration of body.

All bodies and levels are welcomed and encouraged. Every class will be different and so come with an open mind and leave with an open heart.

Inspire by Fighting Monkey

"Inspire by FM" is a task-based movement and communication training practice. Inspired by the *Fighting Monkey Practice, we will explore task-based movement and how its application is vital for longevity. Each week will have a different focus; solo and partnered task-based movement situations will be investigated using various tools/props, floorwork/low-flying locomotion and directed improvisation. Some of the topics we will cover include: smart training for instinctual/reactive movement, elastic capacity for power and mobility, how to identity ineffective and inefficient movement patterns/affectations, and how to use partnered training/physical tools in order to hone body awareness, shared body empathy and communication.

Intermediate

This class provides more creative and innovative sequencing as well as broadening exposure to the core values of the practice. You’ll be introduced to more complex poses through expert preparation and instruction. Intermediate level classes will be most useful for those who are confident they understand the principles covered in Essential classes.

Karma

Karma classes at Mosaic Yoga feature new and experienced teachers willing to donate their time to provide affordable yoga and movement classes for our community. Classes are always pay-what-you-can and unless otherwise advertised, all proceeds go to support the New Leaf Foundation. For over a decade, New Leaf Foundation has been a leader in Canada offering trauma-informed and inclusive mindfulness and yoga-based tools to youth in spaces that are the least-served and often most stigmatized.

Pilates

Much of our internal safety net, both physical and psychological, depends on a framework of strong, balanced core support. These classes riff off the conditioning template and principles developed by Joseph Pilates with modern, innovative flavour. Expect the unexpected! Suitable for all levels.

Prenatal

This class focuses on the aspects of the practice that are most valuable for women in all stages of pregnancy. Prenatal yoga specifically addresses the physical and emotional changes involved in growing a baby and preparing for birth and parenthood. Suitable for all levels.

Rope Wall

TRX meets aerial silks – with a dash of yoga therapy. Sustainable strength comes from balancing the way complementary muscle groups fire and release . Ease of tension comes from being able to invert completely and reverse the usual pull of gravity on your tissues. Rope wall yoga is a vigorous, strength-building practice with a blissful release into full, safe inversions to balance your body’s nervous system. Suitable for all levels.

Restorative

Restorative yoga is a profoundly healing practice which opens doors for deep connection to the self through deliberately placing the body in yoga poses with full support. This is a gentle and slow practice which can be accessible for many who might not feel comfortable (yet) in a more active class. Each class will include guided meditation appropriate for all levels of experience. Suitable for all levels.

Yin

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of modern yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time.  It is a beautiful complement to a more dynamic movement practice. It works more specifically with the connective tissues and joints in the body and is a great way to increase range of motion and flexibility. As a result of the passive and meditative component of the practice, it helps to calm the mind and balance out a busy life. Yin yoga enhances our vitality and overall health.
