Founded in 1997, Gertrude Street Yoga Studio is an urban centre for yoga, wellness, and community. We value yoga as a holistic practice that includes movement, meditation, and well being. Our classes offer the opportunity to connect to your body and breath, to relax and unwind, and to cultivate a community that extends beyond the mat.
Hannah: I grew up with a Mom who practiced yoga and took on the practice as my own in her early 20's. Jaspah: I developed my practice as a way of balancing a rigorous corporate work life over 10 years ago. Both Hannah and I decided to delve deeper into the practice when they signed up for a yoga teacher training in Mexico which is where we met!
Jaspah: It was always a dream of ours to open a studio and Hannah was teaching at Gertrude Street Yoga when the previous owners decided they needed to move on to other things, so we jumped at the opportunity to continue running it.
Not a motto persay but we love this Bree Brown quote: "No one belongs here more than you." We want everyone to feel welcome and an integral part of our community.
We hope Gertrude Street feels like a home away from home where everyone feels welcome to practice and take some time to relax and recharge.
No one belongs here more than you.
Our music is so diverse! You will hear everything from traditional to modern, from instrumental to lyrics, and sometimes we bring in live music to our classes which is always amazing!
