Welcome to Downward Dog

Since opening our doors in 1997, our focus has been to inspire and encourage students in a lifelong practice that is sustainable, enjoyable, and representative of a holistic yoga experience.

Downward Dog Yoga Centre has been at the heart of Toronto’s yoga community for more than 23 years. We offer quality yoga instruction in classes that inform all levels of practice, from beginner to advanced.

Our love of yoga encompasses challenging, high-energy Vinyasa classes, reverence for the tradition of yoga, and a respect for innovative, modern approaches to functional movement, mobility, and stability.


Class Schedule

From Vinyasa, Pilates, meditation and restorative yoga, we currently offer our classes in person (physically distanced). Please book ahead to secure a spot.

We also offer virtual classes via live stream through the Zoom app. If you are unable to attend the class at its scheduled time, you can catch the recording, which lasts for 24 hours.

Digital Subscription

Practice on your own time, in your own space from your own device. Unedited and uninterrupted, our instructors flow through class like in a regular studio. New videos are added every month. All you need is a browser to load our website.

  • 200-hour Fundamentals of Vinyasa Yoga
