Janati Yoga School's Teaching Philosophy

Janati is a sanskrit word that translates to "learn" and "experience".

I like to think of it as "learn through experience" - which is how yoga works, what I teach, and why I chose it as the name of my Yoga School.

I am very excited to share that Janati Yoga is a certified Private Educational Institution by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and meets the criteria of a Vocational Institution according to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Yoga is different things to different people. The groovy thing is, they are all good and they are all Yoga!

We endeavor to help students find their own understanding of what Yoga is to them, and encourage them to allow their personal practices to evolve and transform them.

We believe that the essence of Yoga is unconditional love; embracing the full spectrum of experiences, people, places, and things with reverence and awe... Moving towards our authentic self is moving to greater expressions of love and connection with our world.

Janati Yoga's teaching and practices include yoga philosophy (yamas & niyamas), asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing expansion), dharana (concentration), dhyana & nidra (meditation), mantra (sacred sound), prema (unconditional love), metta (loving kindness), karuna (compassion), jyotir (lightness - laughing is so important!!!), sukham (ease) - all working towards Samadhi (awakening) and Ananda (bliss).

In the spirit of constant teaching and learning, I've chosen one of my favorite Yoga Sutras for the home page:

YS I.12 "Abhyasa vairagyabhyam tan nirodhah"

To attain Yoga, the keys to practice are:

  1. a consistently dedicated practice pursued with reverence (keep continue)
  2. non-attachment to the results (letting go).
