Margot Stokreef

Margot’s philosophy is to make yoga accessible for all ages and bodies through a compassionate approach that is both empowering and grounded in tradition.
Margot is a Certified Yoga Instructor (E-500 Yoga Alliance) and a Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) who lives and works in Toronto.

She started her yoga journey in 1991 in Tokyo, Japan, where Margot was given a prenatal practice by a very wise doctor. Margot graduated in 2009 from the Breathe Yoga Teacher Training Program and has since continued to be an avid learner and passionate about all things yoga. She has completed further teacher training in yoga for seniors, prenatal and postnatal, restorative yoga, yin yoga and Ayurveda, as well as yoga therapy at Yoga Therapy Toronto.

Margot is certified to lead teacher training programs with the Yoga Alliance (200 hour, 500 hour) as well as specialized trainings: Yoga for Seniors teacher trainings and Accessible Yoga for All teacher trainings. In 2017, after two and a half years and more than 1,000 hours of study and practicum, she became certified as a Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) in the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya.

The foundation of Margot’s group teaching practice is a strong daily practice and the principles of yoga therapy.
